‘FBI’: Missy Peregrym announces season 5 will be delayed

Missy Peregrym, who gave birth to her second child last month, will return to the CBS procedural in the fall

She revealed on Instagram Friday that she will continue her maternity leave until September, when she will resume her role as Special Agent Maggie Bell

This should put Peregrym back on air around mid-fall, according to sources

"The FBI is starting up again in a few weeks, but I'll be returning to work in September," the actress said

The opportunity to bond with my family, to rest and heal, and to be a mother (which is harder than work!) makes me feel relieved and grateful

Peregrym and Tom Oakley welcomed their second daughter, Mela Joséphine Oakley, on June 6

During last season's 18th episode, Maggie was injured on the job, setting the stage for Peregrym's maternity leave

"Maggie's recovery is going to take time," showrunner Rick Eid told TVLine at the time
