Exclusive: Maria Bello Exits Fox's Touch

Maria Bello is out of Touch.

Literally.

The Prime Suspect actress — who joined Fox’s Kiefer Sutherland drama at the end of Season 1 and was upgraded to a series regular ahead of the about-to-premiere second season — has left the series, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Reps for Fox and 20th Century Television declined to comment, but multiple sources confirm that the exit was a mutual decision between Bello and Touch producers.

It’s unclear how or when Bello’s Lucy character will be written out of the show, which wrapped production on Season 2 last week (Bello remains a series regular throughout the season). The show returns with a two-hour episode on Friday, Feb. 8.
