Some series are going to look a lot different for many different reasons. While some popular shows are adding to their impressive casts with some new stars, others have said goodbye to some of their stars in between seasons leaving a hole in the cast, meanwhile some shows have promoted recurring stars to become a bigger part of the series! From stars leaving to stars joining and more, here are the biggest cast shakeups heading into the fall 2019 TV season:
52. Leaving: Lori Loughlin – Fuller House
With a court case ongoing, Fuller House is going to be without one of its popular stars for its upcoming final season. Following the news of Lori Loughlin’s involvement in the Operation Varsity Blues scam, the actress was quickly dropped by the Hallmark Channel and reports indicated she was not expected to return to Fuller House either. After the ordeal, Netflix said there were “no plans” for Loughlin’s Aunt Becky to appear in the fifth and final season of the series, but since she was just a recurring character, her absence would not impact the final storylines.
