What happened to Maggie Bell on FBI?

Missy Peregrym announced on Instagram in February 2022 that she was due to give birth in the summer of that year.

FBI producers decided to temporarily write her off the show while she went on maternity leave.

The last time FBI fans saw Peregrym’s character, Maggie was hospitalized after she and OA (played by Zeeko Zaki) searched for the man responsible for using deadly sarin gas.

However, Maggie gets trapped in a room with the gas and OA finds her in time to break free.

Although OA was able to save Maggie, the episode concluded with him at her hospital bedside, telling her he didn’t want to do the job without her.

In response, Maggie gives OA a slight nod to let him, and the viewers, know she is still alive.

When did Missy Peregrym return?

The FBI showrunner Rick Eid confirmed Peregrym would be returning to Season 5 of the show.

Eid told Variety the first two episodes of the new season explore the relationship and “dynamic” that exists between OA and Maggie.

“We explore OA’s attempt to be overly protective and Maggie trying to stake out her own lane in this new chapter of their partnership.”

“Perhaps OA is blaming himself for certain things he shouldn’t be blaming himself for, so we definitely explore their partnership,” Eid told the outlet.”

“It’s not always easy to come back after eight or nine months after something like this happens. It’s not just on the person who actually suffered the injury.”

“It’s also complicated for the person who didn’t suffer the injury but maybe blames himself for the other person suffering the injury. We dig a little bit into that kind of psychology,” he said.

Missy and her husband, Australian actor Tom Oakley, welcomed their second child, Mela Joséphine Oakley, on June 6, 2022.

The show’s fifth season premiered on September 20, 2022.

Missy returned on the seventh episode of season five after her character took a seven-month medical absence.
