Revenge Season 3 Scoop: Who's Out?

at . Comments

Only one death took place on the finale of Revenge Season 2.

But a second main cast member will not be returning to the ABC drama this fall.

Deadline has confirms that the series will not pick up the contract option on Ashley Madekwe, meaning Ashley Davenport will no longer be around to scheme her way to the top of The Hamptons elite.

ABC sources cite "storyline reasons" as the basis for Madekwe's departure.

Which makes sense. The character never really caught on, going from Emily's best friend to falling for Tyler to managing Conrad's campaign. But with Grayson winning election on the finale, that arc is complete and there's nowhere left for Ashley to go.

It's unclear at this time just how the show will write the social climber out.
