Chris Alonso, an officer, has given up her badge. Lina Esco, one of the original cast members of S.W.A.T., is leaving the CBS crime show after five seasons.
Esco said goodbye to his fans in a post on social media. He said it was “one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make.” On Sunday night’s season finale, her character Alonso, who is out as bisexual, worked her last shift.
“Bringing to life a strong, smart, bisexual character like Chris Alonso has been both a pleasure and a powerful opportunity to increase visibility for diverse women everywhere,” Esco wrote in a message on Instagram. “Five years later, I am leaving S.W.A.T. to pursue new creative endeavors. Chris never backs down from the unknown and as an actor and director, I’m excited to step out of my comfort zone and embark on a new chapter, too.”
“That said, she continued, “this is one of the most difficult decisions I’ve had to make. I’m forever grateful to my S.W.A.T. family – my fellow cast, writers, and producers – for an incredible journey. To the amazing S.W.A.T. fans, you are the heart of the show. I can’t thank you enough for your support and for walking beside me through all of Chris’ journey!”
