EXCLUSIVE: Shantel VanSanten is moving from FBI to FBI: Most Wanted for the latter show’s fifth season. She will reprise the role of Special Agent Nina Chase.
Nina is a well-seasoned FBI agent who is strong-willed, sharp and used to working undercover. The character was first introduced on the mothership series toward the end of Season 4 and she continued her recurring role in various episodes of Season 5 which concluded in May.
Nina remains in a relationship with FBI’s Stuart Scola (John Boyd) as they raise their infant son Douglas together. VanSanten is joining the cast following Alexa Davalos’ exit from FBI: Most Wanted, which Deadline reported exclusively in August.
Following the conclusion of the dual WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, FBI: Most Wanted will premiere its fifth season on Tuesday, February 13th, 2024 (10-11 p.m., ET/PT) on CBS and will be available to stream on Paramount+.Read more on deadline.com
