THE TOUGH DECISION

Lutz explained that everything occurred in the middle of the ongoing pandemic when he lived in a different state away from his family and friends. He said 2020 taught him how important family is and added:

"After a lot of prayer and reflection, I made the difficult decision to move my growing family back to California so our daughter could grow up with her grandparents."

THE SHOW

The season 3 premiere was, in fact, a Part 2 of a three-part crossover with "FBI" and its new spinoff, "FBI: International." Lutz played Agent Crosby on the show.

The series focuses on the Fugitive Task Force of the bureau, and Agent Crosby's exit was a vital part of the premiere. During his last stint, he was assisting Agent Maggie Bell.

Agent Crosby got injured when a veteran who previously served alongside him in the army shot him, leading to him requiring immediate surgery.

In turn, that was his farewell exit as the show portrayed him returning to his hometown to stay with his parents in Oklahoma, where he would recuperate.
