Well, folks, its that time of year were the fall TV switch-ups take us by surprise as we are forced to say goodbye to some of our favorite characters on TV. This year is no exception and while some actors have decided to leave some of our favorite shows, there are some exciting new additions that will make any loss less painful. Here are some exciting new actors who will be joining the top shows for the fall seasons.
The Crown: Claire Foy is leaving
Its time to meet the new queen on the next season of The Crown. After two spectacular seasons of playing the role of Queen Elizabeth II, Claire has left the show and will be replaced by Oscar winner Olivia Colman. While the changeup is a little jarring for fans, as the show will now move on to follow a new phase of the Queen’s reign it makes sense to cast an older actress. While this is indeed a bittersweet goodbye for fans of Foy, Colman is a remarkable actress so her performance is sure to be amazing. That’s not the only switch up this season as the role of Princess Margarette will now go to Helena Bonham Carter, who has decided to make the transition to the small screen. We cannot wait to see the new season with its new star-studded lineup!
Atypical: Sara Gilbert is joining the cast
Well, Atypical’s season three line up has expanded to include the talented Sara Gilbert. With things not working out with the reboot of Rosanne, it seems Sara was free to move on to new and exciting things. The Rosanne star will play the recurring role of Professor Judd, a gruff ethics scholar who despairs of her students. With Sara’s performance as Lesley Winkle on the Big Bang Theory, we imagine this won’t be the first time the actress is playing this kind of character and we look forward to seeing how this works out.
NCIS: Ziva is back!
Fans of the show will know that it was heartbreaking to see show long-runner Cote de Pablo leave the show when the storyline of her character Ziva wrapped up.
However, it seems her departure from the show was shortlived as Cote is set to make appearances in the next season. Part of us always preyed Ziva wasn’t gone for good, and it seems our prayers have been answered. It’s unclear whether her return will be permanent, but here is hoping!
