Missy Peregrym, who played Special Agent Maggie Bell on FBI, will soon return to our screens whether you're ready or not – let's face it, you're more than ready!
Peregrym will make a comeback in the "Ready or Not" episode airing on Tuesday, November 15, according to CBS. Since she was exposed to sarin gas near the end of Season 4 (to account for Peregrym's maternity leave), Maggie has been on medical leave.
She is now back with the team as they look into the murders of a law student and a young man who may have had gang ties. Also in this episode, OA (Zeeko Zaki) worries that his partner is returning to the job too quickly after Maggie accidentally spills a secret to him.
The images above show Maggie working again with her team, which includes OA, Stuart Scola (John Boyd), and Tiffany Wallace (Katherine Renee Turner). Watch the video below to show Zaki, Boyd, Turner, and Alana De La Garza welcoming Peregrym back to the set with a humorous unveiling. Alana De La Garza plays Special Agent in Charge Isobel Castille.
Zaki stated to TV Insider that OA is "trying to be her guardian" in regards to what to anticipate when Maggie returns. Since she was inside that lab the last time they were in the field together and he had to fight to reach her, they must be affected in some way by working together once more. Zaki quipped, "I think getting to play that will be intriguing to observe, whether it drives him further into a protective mentality or not.
It's going to be incredibly enjoyable for everyone to see how we get to toss in a lot of our missing partner, and our writers are really thrilled that she gets to return because we've gotten to do so much with all the other characters. Therefore, it's a really good, balanced return, he continued.
