Who’s leaving The Blacklist? On Twitter, star Enrique Murciano announced he will not be returning for season five of the NBC TV series.
Murciano recurred as FBI agent Julian Gale on the thriller drama, which also stars James Spader, Megan Boone, Diego Klattenhoff, Harry Lennix, Ryan Eggold, Hisham Tawfiq, Amir Arison, and Mozhan Marno.
It’s unclear why Murciano isn’t returning for the new season of The Blacklist, but you can see his announcement below:

What do you think? Do you watch The Blacklist? Were you hoping to see more of Murciano’s character in season five?
I love the blacklist and pray that they have a lot more seasons! I’m hooked so keep up the good work
Bummed out that Tom is gone and Mr.Kaplan too.
I figured the bones were her moms!
Thank GOD! From the very first time you see this character, with his sunglasses indoors and terrible wanna be Andrew Dice Clay / Fonzi persona, it was the worst. I honestly can’t believe that is how they wanted the character played. It probably isnt, and that’s why he is gone.
Nothing against the actor whatsoever but i am glad this character won’t be back in Season 5, I didn’t like this character from the first episode he appeared in, so this news is good for me! I hope they make the “exit” of this character a ‘good one’, ha
No, not really. found him a bit intriguing at first until it was evident (2 episodes) that Gale’s F.B.I. character was a real ass who wasn’t able to get out of his own way. The Blacklist will be just fine without him and maybe better.
I enjoyed the colorful, nut-bag character that Enrique Murciano played. Anybody Panabaker describes as “wilder than a peach orchard hog” is worth the watch.
Why is he called a “star?” He was a minor character who is no longer connected to the plot.
He didn’t add much other. He came across as a street punk who advanced to the FBI. His character didn’t flow well in the story line. Guess you don’t know until you try.
Not losing any sleep over this call! He seemed to be doing a John Winchester (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) impression more than creating a character. Bye, bye, bye!
I’m actually glad he’s gone. His acting really wasn’t in the same league as the others.
Love Blacklist. Won’t miss Murciano. Seemed to be trying to do his best Jeffery Dean Morgan impression on the show.
Bizarre. Agent Gale was an integral part of the team. Curious as to why he is leaving as well as what the story line will be for his exit. I liked the character. I felt he was an important part of the tension between Red and the Squad. He was also the “conscience” of the team when it needed one to keep the action balanced. I see this as an unfortunate occurrence; however, these writers are so excellent that I trust it will all be explained and the transition will be smooth and non-obstructive.
I do watch the show, he wasn’t important so I’m not bothered by it…
