'Brothers & Sisters': Balthazar Getty says goodbye, too
Rob Lowe, long gone. Emily VanCamp, just left. And now, one more cast member is saying c'est la vie to "Brothers & Sisters."
An ABC spokesperson confirms to Zap2it that Balthazar Getty won't be returning for Season 5, a
s reported first by EW.
The spokesperson tells us that Getty and the producers mutually agreed on his departure and feel it's time to phase his character out as the show does its one-year time jump next season.
Getty's character, Tommy, will return to Seattle to be close to his estranged wife and daughter. Getty will not appear in the premiere episode on September 26, but his story will be wrapped up presumably in dialogue.
The ABC spokesperson says there's no guarantee Getty won't guest star later in the season as it's still being written.
Update: Getty will guest star in "Hawaii Five-0," as tweeted by showrunner, Peter Lenkov.
