In a statement to Deadline, Lindsey opened up about the reasons she’ll be departing the series.

“After much thoughtful consideration and introspection, I have made the incredibly difficult decision to step away from my role as Micki Ramirez on Walker for personal reasons, and I am eternally grateful to have the support of the producers, CBS Studios and The CW in allowing me to do so,” Lindsey said. “The opportunity to play Micki has truly been a blessing as has working alongside the incredible cast and crew of this terrific series. Please know that I will continue to root for my TV family and wish them all the best.”

The site adds that Lindsey recently approached Walker producers about her leaving the show, to which they all supported her.

“Lindsey is a wonderful person, inside and out,” Jared said. “I am proud of, and grateful for, her work on Walker. Moreover, I’m honored to consider her a friend.”

Showrunner and EP Anna Fricke shared, “It’s been a true pleasure to work with Lindsey. I admire her as a person and as a professional. She will of course be missed, but we truly support her and celebrate the impact she has made on this show.”

It’s not known when Lindsey will depart the show this season, or how Micki will be written out. However, The CW and CBS Studios have assured that it could be possible for her to return.

“We respect and support Lindsey Morgan’s decision to step away from her role as a series regular on Walker and wish her only the best,” the CW and CBS said in a joint statement. “She is a tremendously talented actress who will certainly be missed, and we will, of course, leave the door open for ‘Micki’ to return.”
