Mistresses fans can now relax. Why? It was announced today by ABC President Paul Lee at the winter TCA event the the role of Savi (Alyssa Milano) will not be recast.I was just as surprised by her wanting to leave the summer soap(with good reason). I was even more relieved to have the show renewed for a third season. Read more about the news below.
Addressing the actress’ unexpected decision to exit Mistresses when it was announced that production for Season 3 was moved from Los Angeles to Vancouver, Canada, Lee told TVLine that “We’re going to create a new character — we’re not going to replace her. We fully support [Alyssa’s] decision to stay here with her family. We’re sorry to see her go, but we’ve got some great plans for Mistresses.” (via TVLine)
