Some fans think actress Alana De La Garza might be leaving 'FBI.'

Actress Alana De La Garza has yet to address the rumors about her potential departure from the fan-favorite police procedural drama. FBI creator duo Dick Wolf and Craig Turk have yet to confirm or deny the rumors. Likewise, CBS has yet to issue a press release. 

At present, it's uncertain whether Alana intends to stay on the show beyond Season 3.

Alana joined the star-studded cast of the police-procedural drama in 2019, following a string of appearances on hit shows like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Criminal Minds, and FBI: Most Wanted. 

As the SAC, Alana delivers an impeccable portrayal of a quick-thinking character who's not afraid to push the team and encourage them to take on more challenges. Although she had a few conflicts in the past — most notably with O. A. (Zeeko Zaki) — she has proven to be a reliable boss.

"Isobel is no-nonsense, no bones about it. I think she is a very tough leader who expects the best, but also is a team player," Alana said when describing her character in a video

"I also didn't wanna love Isobel at first. But now, like, she's one of my all-time favorites. And I also like the new girl, although I wish they would've let Emily stay too. And I love the smaller characters who get showcased with big storylines, that last episode was AMAZING!!," reads a tweet thread posted by an FBI fan named @WhatsUmami

Season 3 of 'FBI' addressed topics such as racism and right-wing radicalism.

Season 3 of FBI kicked off on Nov. 17, 2020, with an episode titled "Never Trust a Stranger."

The episode dealt a hefty blow to O. A., who had to learn that one of his informants was involved in a mass shooting organized by a group of right-wing radicals.

The next few episodes touched on similarly complicated issues.

Take "Unreasonable Doubt," which captured the team's attempts to track down the serial killer who weighted three women down to the bottom of a lake. "Crazy Love" began with a hate crime, a shooting that took place at a quinceañera. 

Isobel stayed in the background for the most part, but there's a strong chance that the forthcoming episodes will shed light on what the future holds for her. 

Catch new episodes of FBI every Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
