Is Lina Esco leaving SWAT?
The actress has not addressed any rumors that she won’t be back for season six, however she’s also been unusually quiet regarding the show on social media.
CBS has also kept their lips sealed about the fate of the beloved character.
What are the major fan theories about Lina Esco’s future with SWAT?
Fan theories are abound on the internet, however, after the episode on May 8, 2022, there is more buzz than ever about what will happen to officer Chris Alonso (Lina Esco’s character on the show).

In the May 8 episode, Chris takes over a safe house, and tells her longtime love-interest-slash-SWAT-team-member officer Jim Street, that she only has two more weeks left with the SWAT team.
Fans are taking this in a lot of ways, but here are the main ones:
Chris could be taking over the safe house temporarily, giving her and officer Jim Street the opportunity to figure out what they are romantically Chris could be taking over the safe house permanently, as a way of being on the show, while taking the backseat (and perhaps allowing Lina Esco to continue her directing career?) Chris could be taking over the safe house permanently if she and officer Street decide that they want to be together Chris could be written off the show entirely

Regardless, a lot remains to be unfolded in the next two weeks, but the episode ended with Street telling Chris that he was “done” after she dodged his questions about a possibility of a future together.
How did fans react to the May 8 episode?
Many fans were not happy, airing out their grievances on Twitter.
The general consensus seemed to be: we’ve waited for these two to get together for 5 whole seasons! Give the people what they want!
User AR (@itsonlyAR) tweeted: …I am so upset that Chris and Street aren’t gonna happen. I really loved them together and the writers of the show knew how much fans want them together. It’s genuinely upsetting wasted all the opportunity.

Meanwhile, other fans got straight to the point, with user Kenna Hill (@KennaHi49037445) tweeting,
“Is Chris’ portrayer leaving? If not then she don’t love him. Care for…maybe but she truly can’t love him bc she’s constantly hurting his. Love don’t hurt. @swatcbs please don’t make Street beg for her ever again. He deserves reciprocated love. Fans deserve closure. #ImDone”

Perhaps she is leaving, or perhaps they’re just getting started, but either way, fans don’t want to be left hanging.
Your call, Lina.
