In the fall 2021 premiere of FBI: Most Wanted, the team said goodbye to one of their own. Special Agent Kenny Crosby (played by Kellan Lutz) sustained a life-threatening injury that forced him to leave his beloved team behind and return home.
His exit came not long after data mining expert Hana Gibson (Keisha Castle-Hughes) was involved in a near-shootout that prompted her character to take a brief hiatus from the show. Despite rumors that Hana's time on FBI: Most Wanted may have come to an end, she made a valiant return well ahead of the Season 2 finale, leading fans to believe that her absence was only temporary.
But the data mining expert has been missing since the series returned for Season 3. So, what happened to Hana on FBI: Most Wanted?
Here's what really happened to Special Agent Hana Gibson on 'FBI: Most Wanted.'
Hana was missing from a few episodes in Season 2, leaving the rest of the team to continue their work without her. For those who missed it, in Season 2, Hana was unable to dodge a bullet and was subsequently shot after LaCroix's (Julian McMahon) team was assigned to the kidnapping case of Amelia Cartwright's (Lucy Walters) daughter, Gracie (Aria Kane). In the end, viewers learned that the entire kidnapping was set up by Amelia to get her husband and stepson out of the way.
While the crew was trying to arrest Amelia and her accomplice, an altercation broke out that left Hana shot and badly wounded. Luckily, she survived the bullet but she was forced to take a hiatus. Although Hana didn't resign from her role on the task force permanently, she retreated to her parent's house to recover — hence her absence in Season 3.
In early episodes, the team mentions that she's still visiting her parents, but reports confirm that she'll be back on the show for the Nov. 2 episode of FBI: Most Wanted. Much like her character, Keisha was also forced to take some time off from work — but is the actress back for good?
Is Hana Gibson actress Keisha Castle-Hughes leaving 'FBI: Most Wanted'?
Keisha and her husband Donny Grahamer announced that they were expecting in March of 2021. Although Keisha did not initially disclose her baby's due date, their daughter Matilda made her Instagram debut in June 2021. Baby Matilda is the couple's first child together; Keisha also shares a daughter named Felicity, who was born in 2007, with her ex-boyfriend Bradley Hull.
Season 3, Episode 5 proves that Keisha is back from maternity leave and better than ever. She may have a reduced role in the upcoming season, but there's no indication that she plans to leave the show anytime soon. Following her extended absence, fans are impatiently awaiting the day that Hana Gibson returns — and that day is Tuesday, Nov. 2.
You can watch FBI: Most Wanted on CBS on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST.
