When it’s time to fall, the leaves aren’t the only things that change. In the television scene, and especially in broadcasting, changes in the cast are a common occurrence.
Sometimes, this means that many actors choose to stay away from lovable characters — for one reason or another. The same goes for Unwritten, something that is proven in the upcoming season 48 of “Saturday Night Live.”
The new season sees seven giant exits: Alex Moffat, Melissa Villasenor, Aristotle Athari, Kate McKinnon, Eddie Bryant, Kyle Mooney and Pete Davidson all exited, as well as lead producer Lindsey Shokos, who departed after many years of working in talent. Relations.
Moments after creator Lorne Michaels won an Emmy last week for a variety graphics series, he told reporters in the media room that those changes may have happened earlier, but with the COVID-19 pandemic, no one wanted to get away yet.
“There was an intimate connection and a bond, a connection between the audience and this group. And I think we just couldn’t imagine the world without this whole team. So we just kept moving forward,” he said at the time. “This is going to be a transition year. A year of change is always difficult. But also really sexy.”
Some of the changes are not exciting. At NBC and Wolf Entertainment, there’s a lot to come. On “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” Kelly Gidish will be exiting the show during the upcoming 24th season. After announcing her departure in August, several sources said diverse That the call was made from above in order to keep the view as up to date as possible. Star and executive producer Mariska Hargitay and at least one other producer rallied to keep her on the show.
In the meantime, there are changes behind the scenes. David Graziano steps in as the new showrunner after Warren Leight’s exit after season 23. “Law & Order: Organized Crime” also got a new boss ahead of season three, with Shawn Jablonsky becoming the fifth showrunner over three seasons.
