TVLine – I’ve seen the future, and there are a lot of very unhappy people.
Multiple sources are confirming that a wildly popular character on an hour drama that has long been an Aushole staple is about to take his/her last breath.
I’m told the producers of this unnamed broadcast series are planning to kill off the fan favorite either in the season finale or soon after the show returns next season.
It’s not clear if the decision was made for creative or budgetary reasons — it was likely a combination of both — but it’s my understanding that it was not arrived at lightly. Far from it, in fact.
There’s also a chance the execs at the program in question will have a last-minute change of heart, but, according my spies, it’s an extremely slim one.
Which show is putting a hit out on one of its MVPs — and whose name is on the toe tag?
BG Note: An “Aushole” is a fan of TVLine Editor Michael Ausiello.
