Kellan Lutz Confirms He Exited 'FBI: Most Wanted' - Here's Why

Kellan Lutz has confirmed that he’s exiting FBI: Most Wanted.

Fans began wondering if Kellan had left the show after Tuesday’s premiere. He confirmed the news on his Instagram that he’s done playing Special Agent Kenny Crosby, and explained why.

Click inside to read his explanation…

“Wow. What a night! And yes, you saw that correctly, Crosby won’t be chasing down any bad guys for a little while. 2020 was a lot for everyone to say the least. For me it started with losing my first daughter, then nearly my wife, and both grandfathers among other things, all in the middle of a global pandemic on the opposite side of the country from my family, friends, and entire support system,” Kellan wrote to his fans. “If 2020 taught me anything it’s how important family truly is. After a lot of prayer and reflection I made the difficult decision to move my growing family back to CA so our daughter could grow up with her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, just a short drive away.”

He added, “CBS, Dick Wolf, UniversalTV, and the entire FBI: Most Wanted team have been beyond supportive, understanding, and heard me out as I worked through feelings and emotions in regards to this decision. One thing that I kept hearing over and over when I booked this job was how much of a family Dick Wolf shows are, and that couldn’t be more accurate. They’ve supported me in the lows and celebrated with me in the highs and I will forever be grateful for everything they’ve done for me.”

Kellan then said, “I will miss the show, my costars, production, and most importantly my character Kenny Crosby, who is named after one of the grandfathers I lost earlier this year, but I have so much peace knowing I made the right decision for my family. I hope Crosby is able to pop in and out here and there in the future but for now- Crosby-over and out. 💪🙏♥️🙌😎 Much love to all you amazing fans!!!!”
