We Have Some Pretty Bad News – Cortez Is Leaving 'S.W.A.T.' for Good


The S.W.A.T. Season 3 premiere left us with a lot to dwell on. "Fire in the Sky" marked the arrival of two new characters: the rock-solid, well-spoken Lieutenant Piper Lynch (Amy Farrington) and Hondo's (Shemar Moore) estranged father (Obba Babatundé) who managed to stir up a good bit of trouble right upon arrival.

Although there was no shortage of fast-paced, action-packed storylines, this didn't satisfy some fans. Why? We were too busy asking: did Cortez leave S.W.A.T. for good? 

Did Cortez leave S.W.A.T.?

Jessica Cortez (Stephanie Sigman) was first rumoured to take a brief break from the hectic and unpredictable everyday of the Los Angeles Police Department during the season 2 finale, "Kangaroo." At the time, it was indicated that she would go on a few-day long training course organised by the FBI. This left die-hard fans of the show to hold onto the last, faintest ray of hope, thinking that the character will make her due return.
