Changes Coming to Season Three of In Plain Sight

at . Comments

Season two of In Plain Sight ends tomorrow night.

As previously reported, the show has already been picked up for a third season.

When the show does return, however, it will look a bit different. For starters, Lesley Ann Warren (the mother of Mary McCormack's character) and Todd Williams (detective Bobby Dershowitz) have been dropped as series regulars.

Moreover, executive producer and creator David Maples actually won't be running In Plain Sight when it comes back for season three. Reportedly, he clashed with USA's president of original programming, Jeff Wachtel.

In separate interviews with E! News, both of these individuals spoke about the future of the hit show:

Maples: "I think they probably want the show to be more procedural, spend more time with witness protection and less time with Mary's personal life. We're talking a matter of balance - what's the dominant flavor of the show going to be?"

Wachtel: "What's the network [motto]? 'Characters welcome.' Story based in the characters. I don't think anyone has ever accused Monk of being plot-driven. I think story matters. At no point was this supposed to become a character procedural, and I'll say officially that all great shows are a balance between characters and story."

In Plain Sight Quotes

One of the most difficult moments in anyone's life is when the fog of childhood lifts and we see for the first time our parents as people.

Mary

Marshall: You are in a different kind of mood this morning.
Mary: Actually, I'm in a really good mood. Which is kind of weird considering where I was 48 hours ago. Then I had a witness off herself and, like that is not bad enough, I've got to play second fiddle to a knucklehead like you.
Marshall: Thanks for lumping me in with kidnapping, attempted rape and suicide. Can't tell you how much that means.
