Three are coming, four are going.
With Smash Season 2 set to welcome three new regulars, Entertainment Weekly has broken the news that four regulars from the show's uneven opening season will lose their status when Smash returns in early 2013. They are:
- Jaime Cepero (Ellis, much to the non-chagrin of TV Fanatic staff members)
- Raza Jaffrey (Dev)
- Brian D'Arcy James (Frank)
- Will Chase (Michael)
It's unknown at the moment whether any of these actors will even make a season two appearance, but expect the news of Ellis' departure to be met with the same reaction as Dan Harmon exiting Community.
Only the exact opposite.
