“What I did know and have known along with the rest of the cast since before we even started shooting this season is that I am leaving the show and was leaving the show. This was going to be my last season, regardless of if it went on or not. For different reasons, that, to be honest, I don’t want to go into. I just want y’all to trust me on it.”
She also said:
“I’m not leaving because I had a terrible time working at The CW. I like The CW. I like [CW network president] Mark Pedowitz, I like [Warner Bros. president] Peter Roth, [EP] Greg Berlanti, I love [showrunner] Salim [Akil], I always will. He gets it. And people that actually know me… they know why I make the decisions that I make.”
