Revenge is undergoing a lot of changes before it returns in the Fall. One of those changes is writing off Ashley Davenport, played by Ashley Madekwe.
After much speculation, Madekwe confirmed the rumors through her twitter account stating, “Yes it’s true I’m leaving Revenge. I’ve LOVED playing Ashley Davenport but after 2 seasons there is no longer a story left for me to tell…”
She also added that she will come back in season 3 to act out the rest of her role, in whatever way they plan to kill her off. “The Revenge writers are trying to come up with an exit story for Davenport and I will of course play that out for you all…” she tweeted.
To tell you the truth, I’m not too upset by this news as I can see where Madekwe is coming from. Ashley’s story was getting quite boring. She’s screwed most of the men on the show, betrayed almost everybody and she’s really just useless.
Other changes for Revenge include Declan’s death and what outcomes we can expect from that. It seems to me that both fans and the actor playing Declan (Connor Paulo) were both very upset by Declan’s death. It’s true that in both roles I’ve ever seen Paulo (Eric on Gossip Girl and Declan) he’s been kind of useless, but he has this sort of charm that makes him a lovable character nonetheless.
“I know he was really dissatisfied with how little he had to do, so he’s going to find another role that enables him to show his talent,” actress Christa Allen (Charlotte Grayson) told TV Guide. Good, we cannot wait to see him again!!!!
And last but not least, the biggest, and maybe most noticeable change for Revenge is the departure of show creator Mike Kelley. Replacing him is the previous executive producer Sunil Nayar. This could be either really good for Revenge or really, really bad. Season two was a bit shakey, to say the least, but it ended up being one of the best season finale’s on TV in the end. Now Nayar has a lot of planning to do as to where he wants to take the characters and the storyline without losing the essence of the show.
Henry Czarny (Conrad Grayson) issued a statement that after speaking to Sunil, he is convinced that the plot will be stronger on character development and less on the eyebrow raising shenanigans.
What do you think about all these changes for the show? Will this be their doom?!

Torrey DeVitto, Yaya DaCosta Leaving ‘Chicago Med’ Ahead of Season 7
Someone rush over a crash cart because this news has crushed us!
Chicago Med is losing two incredible cast members ahead of the NBC drama’s seventh season.
Torrey DeVitto, who plays doctor Natalie Manning, and Yaya DaCosta, who plays nurse April Sexton, will not be returning in the fall, per Deadline.
DaCosta is leaving to lead Lee Daniels’ Our Kind of People, which nabbed a straight-to-series order at FOX.
DeVitto, from Pretty Little Liars and One Tree Hill fame, will star in an upcoming indie film titled Skelly.
She even confirmed the news to her fans on social media, writing: “Well, looks like the cat is out of the bag…All good things must come to an end.
It has been such an honor and pure joy to bring Dr. Natalie Manning to life for all of you on Chicago Med for the past 6 seasons. But it is now time for her and me to bow out and say goodbye.
Thank you to all you loyal watchers who adored her as much as I did.
I can’t wait to share what’s to come with all of you. New adventures await!”
Both DeVitto and DaCosta have appeared in the #OneChicago franchise since Med’s premiere in 2015.
Per the publication, their contracts were up at the end of season 6 and both actresses decided not to renew.
The rest of the cast ( S. Epatha Merkerson as Sharon Goodwin, Oliver Platt as Dr. Daniel Charles, Nick Gehlfuss as Dr. Will Halstead, Brian Tee as Dr. Ethan Choi and Marlyne Barrett as nurse Maggie Lockwood) is expected to return pending contract negotiations.
The current storylines have seemingly been setting up for the actresses’ exits as Manning found herself in hot water after stealing medication to help her mother, while April decided to return to nursing school.
We’ll definitely miss DeVitto and DaCosta, but we wish them the best of luck in future projects!
