Fans all over the country watched the premiere of "FBI: Most Wanted" Season 5 last night, and it was an edge-of-your-seat episode "Above & Beyond" that presents an adrenaline-charged new character to the Fugitive Task Force.

Highly anticipated debut of Shjsonldel VanSanten in the role of Special Agent Nina Chase, a development first exclusively reported by Deadline in November, VanSanten, whose breakthrough roles have thus far led to a recurring role in the series' progenitor, "FBI," reprises her role in this high-octane CBS spinoff.

In her debut, Special Agent Nina Chase blows stereotypes apart, excelling in both the roles of a mother and a fierce agent. She cut short her maternity leave to go back into the thick of things, easily rejoining the task force with her colleagues Remy (Dylan McDermott), Hanna (Keisha Castle-Hughes), Ray (Edwin Hodge), and Sheryll (Roxy Sternberg).

One refreshing aspect of the show is that it gives recognition to her partner, Stuart Scola, played by John Boyd, known to "FBI" viewers. This crossover gives the audience a different perspective of their personal life where they are balancing their professional and personal life and bringing up a child together.

Remy's Emotional Return

The premiere not only introduces us to Nina Chase but sees the return of Remy's rollercoaster in Season 4's emotional finale. The arc of Remy's story next catches us up on what happened with that investigation into his brother's murder, a quest that culminated with the astonishing discovery of his adult nephew, Corey (J.D.

Martin). Remy is seen dealing with the moral complications surrounding the incarceration and subsequent death of a man who was wrongly convicted, and the guy's family who he is a part of, in this season. Remy attends therapy at one point, breaking a gender stereotype in his character development and enforcing the fact that mental health does not discriminate against gender.

"Fans can look forward to getting much more of Stuart Sjson 'FBI: Most Wanted' as the season progresses," Hudgins teased. Hudgins also hints at more exciting developments to come, promising a season full of intense drama, complex characters, and captivating storylines.

More is yet to unravel in the unfolding nail-biting action and deep emotion narratives in season five of "FBI: Most Wanted.
