After Rob Lowe confirmed he was quitting US drama Brothers & Sisters, there were some reports that Calista Flockhart might be reducing her commitment to the show too.
But showrunner David Marshall Grant says otherwise.
“We are all expecting Calista to come back next season as a series regular, and she is,” he says. “We’re all expecting to do a great year with her next year.”
As for Lowe, who wanted out because his character, Senator Robert McCallister was being underutilised, Grant says the writers are still contemplating the character’s exit strategy.
“We have a bunch of ideas on the table, of course, and right now we’re just leaving it open,” he says. “It could be anything. Right now, we’re just examining what would be the most exciting way to take us to the end of the season.”
The show returned last night to Seven.
