We are just a few days away from the Season 5 premiere of ‘FBI’ on CBS and viewers have already planned their schedules to watch the extraordinary show. The show focuses on the crime division of the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and how they solve major cases with their intellect and talents. Season 4 of the CBS police procedural drama saw Maggie (Missy Peregrym) landing up in hospital after inhaling an extremely toxic compound. The gas was odorless and colorless and can be used as a chemical weapon.

Although such situations keep on occurring on the show because the team witnesses a lot of dangerous moments during the cases they solved and the officers keep on getting seriously injured. However, this time it was different because Maggie landed up in the hospital and the reason for the character to give some time off was taken after Missy Peregrym approached the show’s creators to give her an off.
