Fans of Mistresses have some bittersweet news today with the announcement that the recently renewed show will be losing one of its leading ladies.
Over night news came in that Mistresses would be renewed for a third season which was a cause of delight to fans who have been campaigning to save the show over the past few weeks. Just hours after that happy news, Alyssa Milano took to Twitter and Facebook to announce that she won’t be returning for the new season.
In a statement Milano revealed that she made the decision due to the show’s relocation from Los Angeles to Vancouver, Canada for the filming of the next season. Milano’s statement read:
After two wonderful seasons in Los Angeles, the studio has decided to shoot Season 3 of Mistresses in Vancouver, Canada for financial reasons. It’s with a heavy heart that I have decided that I can’t relocate.
I have two babies under 4. Being a mother and wife comes first, and I just can not uproot my children and separate the family by moving away.
I will miss this job desperately and wish everyone the absolute best.
It is not known yet how Milano’s character Savi will depart the show or if the actress may return for guest stints in the future.
Mistresses currently airs on TLC in the UK at 10pm on Wednesday nights and is mid-way through its second season.
