Since Season 1 of FBI: Most Wanted, fans have gotten to know the Fugitive Task Force’s Special Agents. As the series progresses, viewers discover more of the agents’ backstories to understand what led them to the force.

In Season 4, Special Agent Hana Gibson (Keisha Castle-Hughes) shared personal details about her life to better relate to a victim. Hana has been known as the younger, determined law officer who pushes through her past. However, her past resurfaced in a recent episode.

During Season 4, Episode 18 ("Rangeland"), Hana's past catches up with her and threatens her emotional ability to stay on the force. Now fans can't help but wonder what the future holds for the FBI agent. Will Hana recover from her traumatic past? Is Hana leaving FBI: Most Wanted?

Distractify spoke exclusively with Keisha, who dished on her Season 4 storyline and more.

Is Hana leaving ‘FBI: Most Wanted’? Season 4, Episode 18 hints that she could be.

Earlier in Season 4, Hana’s kidnapping forces her to relive a dark moment in her past. While trying to comfort Ollie, she shares her own story of sexual assault that she had endured. The reveal is something Keisha exclusively told Distractify is a “real departure from what we usually see here at FBI: Most Wanted.”

That storyline doesn't go away. Almost an entire season later, Hana still reconciles what happened to her with how she should move forward as an FBI agent. One of the men she outed as a child predator gets his revenge on Hana in Episode 18 by threatening her. This takes her mind off of the case at hand, so Kristin questions Hana about how she's doing.

Hana eventually tells Kristin everything in a moment of confidence, but all of us watching know that Hana may need to face her trauma head-on to continue as a Special Agent. Otherwise, her time on the force—and our screens—could be up.

According to Keisha’s IMDb, she will play Hana through at least Season 4, so it’s unlikely her time on the show will end soon. However, the actor explained why she couldn’t give a definite answer about Hana’s future.

“Around here, we will keep everyone on their toes at all times,” Keisha said when asked if fans still need to worry about Hana. “We never know, you know, often I'm finding out things with the fans. So we just kind of, we're hoping that maybe there'll be some blessings ... and maybe not as much stress, but who knows?"

‘FBI: Most Wanted’ said goodbye to one leading cast member in Season 3.

While Hana’s future on FBI: Most Wanted looks bright for now, Keisha admitted the character’s storylines could change drastically. Fortunately, the show’s writers give the actors some notice before they make significant character developments.

“Every now and again, you kind of hear whispers, you know ... like a slight kind of comment, like ... 'there's a big episode coming up.' You know, I really wasn't anticipating what this episode was,” Keisha shared with Distractify.

The actress added: “And I think that our writer did such an incredible job, it's always exciting and invigorating to kind of do something different for all of us across the board. It was exciting for our camera departments to figure out how to shoot things in a different way ... It was a fun, exciting, and intense episode."

Like the writers, FBI: Most Wanted’s actors inform the team ahead of time when they’re ready to say goodbye to the show. Since the procedural drama debuted in 2018, several cast members have left early on, including Nathaniel Arcand, who exited as Special Agent Clinton Skye in Season 2.

In Season 3, fans also said another hard goodbye when Jesse “Jess” LaCroix died in the episode “Shattered.” The death became actor Julian McMahon’s way of leaving the series after three seasons, per Variety. Julian stated in January 2022 that he wanted to step down from FBI: Most Wanted “in favor of additional creative pursuits.”

Tune into new episodes of FBI: Most Wanted Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. EST.
