FBI: INTERNATIONAL: Luke Kleintank to Exit in May

April 23, 2024 by  


“Andiamo!” – The Fly Team heads to the Tuscan countryside after an American couple’s son is kidnapped right outside their new home. Concerns are heightened as fingers begin to point to the mafia, on FBI: INTERNATIONAL, Tuesday, April 2 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and streaming on Paramount+ (live and on-demand for Paramount+ with SHOWTIME subscribers, or on-demand for Paramount+ Essential subscribers the day after the episode airs).

Luke Kleintank is exiting FBI: INTERNATIONAL. His final episode will be May 7. (The third season ends on May 21.)

“After much thought and consideration, I’ve made the difficult decision to leave FBI: INTERNATIONAL,” the actor, who has played Scott Forrester since the show’s start, told Deadline. (They were first to report the news.) “This decision is driven by my unwavering commitment to my family, whose love and well-being are paramount in my life.”

“I’m profoundly thankful for the extraordinary cast and crew of the show, who have not only been colleagues but also a family away from home,” he continued. “Their unwavering dedication and remarkable talents have made every moment on set an unforgettable journey that has enriched my life in countless ways. Lastly, I would also like to extend my thanks to the fans who have supported us through the first three seasons.”

Kleintank was absent for portions of FBI: INTERNATIONAL season 2, with the writers crafting an arc around “Luke had a baby—he’s an awesome guy and an awesome dad,” then-showrunner Derek Haas shared with Give Me My Remote. “And we planned this arc around the fact that [with] a newborn, he would want some time to be a dad. And, of course, as a father myself, and as anyone who works at this company will attest, we’re a big family; we’re a family-friendly organization.”

The series also stars Carter Redwood, Vinessa Vidotto, Christina Wolfe, and Eva-Jane Willis. Teri Polo is set to guest star for an arc at the end of the season as a mysterious character, too.

Update (Tuesday, May 7): With Kleintank exiting the series in the May 7 hour, watch the Scott-centric promo for the first episode without the actor…
