In ABC's police procedural show 'The Rookie: Feds,' special agent Candace Thurlow visits the Los Angeles office to monitor Matthew "Matt" Garza's special investigation unit. These actions are a sign that Niecy Nash-Betts may be stepping away from the crime series.
Simone Clark: What Happened?
Simone plays an integral role in solving several high-profile cases with her out-of-the-box thinking and intuitions. Garza meets in Los Angeles to find out whether or not what she has heard or seen about Simone is true. Candace invites the latter to attend a crucial FBI event.
Simone, a middle-aged queer Black woman, fits the bill perfectly since she "ticks a lot of boxes" as a middle-aged queer Black woman. She wants the FBI to make it more progressive and diverse in a changing world. It's interesting to think that she'll sign on to Candace's offer.
Is Niecy Nash-Betts on his way out of the Feds?
Niecy Nash-Betts has neither issued a statement regarding the actress' departure from 'The Rookie: Feds.' This is especially unlikely after the show received a full season order from ABC.
Candace wishes Simone to be the face of the Bureau, and she does not want him to be the other way. If Simone is brought to Washington with a lot of ideas for changing the FBI, she may become an irrelevant agent, because her superiors will not be open to listening to her and accepting her opinions.
Candace soon realizes that Simone is "too much" for Washington since the latter cannot be limited to the Bureau. She reveals that she will not be transferring Simone to the headquarters, indicating that she will continue to play in 'The Rookie: Feds.'
