A key cast member is leaving The Rookie. TVLine reports Afton Williamson will not return for season two of the ABC TV show.
Williamson plays Talia Bishop on the comedy drama, which centers on John Nolan (Nathan Fillion), a small-town guy who pursues his dream of being an LAPD officer after a life-changing experience. The cast also includes Alyssa Diaz, Richard T. Jones, Titus Makin, Mercedes Mason, and Melissa O’Neil.
It’s unclear why Williamson is parting ways with The Rookie, but Harold Perrineau is expected to fill the void left by the actress. Season two is slated to premiere on ABC on September 29th at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
