Actor Josh Stewart confirmed that he won't be reprising his role as Will LaMontagne Jr. in Criminal Minds: Evolution. Stewart, 46, first portrayed the character in the second season of the original Criminal Minds series and became a recurring presence, particularly after his character's romance with A.J. Cook's Special Agent JJ Jareau.

Their on-screen marriage has been a focal point of the show. In the first season of Evolution, Will's cancer diagnosis mirrored a real-life scare Cook's husband had.

Showrunner Erica Messer hinted at a hopeful outcome for Will's health in the next season.

It's unclear whether Stewart's departure was planned or a personal decision. Criminal Minds: Evolution, which debuted in 2022, features returning cast members such as Joe Mantegna, Paget Brewster, Kirsten Vangsness, Aisha Tyler, and Adam Rodriguez. The show is available for streaming on Paramount+, while the original series can be found on Hulu.
