“S.W.A.T.” has lost its Captain Jessica Cortez.
Speculation rose after actress Stephanie Sigman’s absence from the season 3 premiere on Wednesday. It didn’t take long for fans to notice that Cortez was missing, causing them to react online.
Stephanie Sigman confirmed her exit from the show on Twitter.
The actress mentioned that she was “happy” and “proud” of her work playing Cortez during the first two seasons of the series. Sigman added that it was an “intense learning experience” playing Capt. Cortez.
The Latina star did not mention the reason for saying goodbye; however, there is no bad blood between the actress and her former co-stars and crewmates. Sigman put that thought to rest in her tweet, writing, “wishing the show and ‘S.W.A.T.’ FAMILY the best moving forward.”
Shawn Ryan, the series co-creator, replied to the actress’s exit confirmation:
“S.W.A.T.” airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on Global.
