Mistresses: Alyssa Milano's Savi Won't Be Recast, Says ABC Boss

Mistresses Alyssa Milano Quits

Don’t expect a disfiguring accident — followed by drastic reconstructive surgery — for Mistresses‘ Savi Davis.

ABC’s summer sudser will not recast Alyssa Milano’s role, ABC president Paul Lee made clear on Wednesday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

Addressing the actress’ unexpected decision to exit Mistresses when it was announced that production for Season 3 was moved from Los Angeles to Vancouver, Canada, Lee told TVLine that “We’re going to create a new character — we’re not going to replace her. We fully support [Alyssa’s] decision to stay here with her family. We’re sorry to see her go, but we’ve got some great plans for Mistresses.”

Happy that Savi won’t have a new face come summertime? Or would a recast have been preferable to the character’s absence altogether? Sound off in the comments!
