The FBI and FBI: Most Wanted Teams Answer Reader Questions, Tease a 'Ticking Clock,' Roommates and More

FBI Spoilers CBS TV


Season 1 brought us some Hana (Keisha Castle-Hughes) and Crosby (Kellan Lutz) vibes. Will Season 2 do the same? –Stephanie
DAVID HUDGINS, Executive Producer | I love the relationship between these two younger members of the team and we are digging into that. Hana and Crosby become temporary roommates at one point, and we’ll see a bond develop outside of work that gives us a window into what it’s like to be an FBI agent while also “adulting” in New York City during a pandemic. Keisha and Kellan are great together onscreen.

What episode are you most excited for fans to see? –Katie
HUDGINS | We have a pair of episodes where we meet the families of both Hana and Crosby, and also complicate their roommate relationship. It’s fun and topical, and I think very entertaining to see them not only have conflict, but also be there for each other.

We’ve seen the bond Tali (YaYa Gosselin) has with her grandparents and Jess (Julian McMahon), but will we get to see more of her dynamic with her Uncle Clinton (Nathaniel Arcand)? –Beth
Yes. There is a theme of family that is emerging in Season 2 and Tali’s relationship with her uncle is a part of that.

Will the writers be giving Julian McMahon’s Jess LaCroix a love interest down the road, or do they plan to keep him a widower? –Linda
HUDGINS | In the writers’ room, we were all interested in exploring the idea of when Jess will be ready for love again. He’ll meet a teacher at Tali’s new school — who also lost her spouse — and as the relationship develops, it gets complicated because of Tali’s growing expectations.

What was the hardest scene to film so far this season? –Cleekers
KELLAN LUTZ, who plays Special Agent Kenny Crosby | I think that something like 93 percent of our communication as human beings is nonverbal, so the scenes where we have to wear masks are especially challenging; character-wise, it’s much harder to tell if the person Cosby is interviewing is telling the truth or not. Much like sending a joke or being sarcastic via text message, it’s a lot harder to figure out without tone or context. It takes so much of the humanity out of the storytelling we’re trying to do, so that’s definitely been an adjustment. But of course, everyone’s safety is our primary concern so it’s not a complaint, just a challenge! I’m looking forward to the day where this pandemic is behind us and we can be free to interact and hug each other and spend time together again in the community and in scenes.
