Two denizens of Suburgatory are moving out.
Alan Tudyk and Rex Lee, who play dentist/dad Noah and guidance counselor Mr. Wolfe, respectively, will not return for the ABC comedy’s third season.
As first reported by our sister site Deadline, the actors’ options were not picked up due to budget cuts. While the show received a last-minute renewal for midseason, it came on the condition of a reduced license fee that could result in more regular cast members being let go or reduced to recurring.
Earlier this month, recurring player Parker Young’s Fox pilot Enlisted was picked up to series. Suburgatory creator Emily Kapnek told TVLine she hoped to “get him to return and just do some guesting, maybe for the holiday episodes.”Follow @VladaGelman
