This Original SWAT Cast Member Won’t Return For Season 6


Bad news CRUSH Fans: Officer Chris Alonso has left the team once and for all.

In a statement May 22, Lina Esco shared that she would not be returning to the CBS series for its sixth season, noting that “it was one of the hardest decisions I had to make.”

“Bringing a strong, intelligent, bisexual character like Chris Alonso to life has been both a thrill and a powerful opportunity to increase the visibility of diverse women everywhere,” Lina said in the release. “Five years later, I’m leaving CRUSH pursue new creative projects. Chris never backs down from the unknown and as an actor and director I’m thrilled to step out of my comfort zone and embark on a new chapter as well.”

Although this is the end of his time on the detective series, he will miss the team. “I am eternally grateful to my CRUSH family — my fellow actors, writers, and producers — for an incredible journey,” she continued. “To the Incredible CRUSH fans, you are the heart of the show. I can’t thank you enough for your support and for walking by my side throughout Chris’ journey!”

Alright, we’re officially SAD
