Fall TV Cast Changes

Fall TV Preview: Who's In? Who's Out? Your Guide to 100+ Casting Moves!

This fall, more than 55 TV shows are returning with new seasons — many of them populated by new faces. And yes, there will be several notable absences as well.

To cite but a few examples: Once Upon a Time, Hawaii Five-0 and Chicago P.D. are saying goodbye to major players, Supergirl has acquired a new foe, a Riverdale rascal finally gets a face and Saturday Night Live says sayonara to three funny folk. Meanwhile, Arrow, Grey’s Anatomy and The Blacklist will welcome back some very familiar faces.

In this handy, alphabetized Ins & Outs gallery (click here for direct access), TVLine has sifted through every casting story published since the spring to deliver a handy primer on the new series regulars and guest stars (appearing in two or more episodes) that are joining returning faves this TV season, plus a spoiler-free refresher on those who have been left behind.

Which casting are you looking forward to? And which absence do you dread?

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

  1. I’m gonna miss Emma Swan,Charmings,Zelena,Belle a lot.

  2. Mary says:

    I’m not watching Once without Emma – there’s no point

  3. JJ says:

    Poor Jared Gilmore doesn’t even make the list.

  4. I can’t wait to see this train wreck, you decrib as new fall season. I can’t wait to write you again to say I told you so. 😕

  5. Tom says:

    Firefly should ALWAYS be included when discussing Fillion

  6. JOE S HILL says:

    Television in 2017 is so dead. I’ll gladly settle for TV in 1967 and 1977 before I waste a single second of my channel time on this so-called shows-boring, uncreative, and without a single bit of good talent! the two departing actors from the rebooted “HAWAII FIVE-O” for example are really no big loss because neither Kim or Park has the kind of star power that the original Jack Lord version-still the best, has! if CBS is smart, they’d cancel this new version, but obviously, it still has an audience, such as it is!

      Some people would beg to differ but if you want to stay in the 60”s and 70’s please by all means do so. but since television is doing so many re boots I bet one of your 60’s shows will be back any day now

    • Jamie says:

      Lmao you might be the only person on the planet who thinks this. TV has never been better – there is literally something on for everybody, especially when you look outside the big networks. But even some network shows like The Good Place, Fargo, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, etc. are creative as f*** – you’re wouldn’t find anything like them in the ’60s and ’70s. But have fun missing out on all this fantastic entertainment!

      stupid grumpy old man says what?

  7. clintbrew says:

  8. Arlene says:

    What do you know about Chicago Fire, please?

  9. Arlene says:

    Just saw your Chicago PD item. She was why I watched. Goodbye, Chicago PD.

  10. ellajasper says:

    Not so happy about Chin and Kono on Hawaii Five O, or Virginia Madsen on Designated Survivor.

  11. ktc1986 says:

    “Odette Annable (Banshee) has joined the Season 3 cast as a series regular, playing legendary DC baddie/”Worldkiller” Reign.” – Legendary DC baddie? Is this a joke? She was in 8 poorly done issues of Supergirl about 5 years ago. Legendary hahahaha.

    • Rex the Wonder Dog says:

      In an ideal world they would do the Zor-El as Cyborg Superman story. That would have some real emotional impact for Kara. But given the crappy version of the Hank Henshaw Cyborg Superman I guess they don’t have the budget to do a good version of Cyborg Superman.

  12. jj says:

    Eggold return to The Blacklist … this pretty much guarantee this will be The Blacklist last season.

    Now that JM is no longer a series regular in OUAT, maybe I will actually give the show a try.

    Kind of in shock on how many series regulars not returning to Taken. Very glad the character Asha will be gone though.

    Not that I watch The Voice much, but definitely won’t be watching with JH and KC as coach.

  13. Kevin Tran says:

    Really going to miss Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park on Hawaii Five-O. They’re the heart and soul of the show since the beginning.

  14. Maddie Mae says:

    This article has mentioned all the younger versions of Kate, and Kevin, but what is the status of young Randall? Is Lonnie available for season 2?

    • Gena says:

      I guess he’s still going to do TIU — I haven’t heard anything about his part being re-cast — but since he’s also going to be a regular on the upcoming Showtime series ‘White Famous,’ TIU will likely have him billed as a “guest star” for contractual reasons. :)
