Rob Lowe to Depart Brothers & Sisters - Featured

From EW:


I see another heart attack in Senator McCallister's future.



Rob Lowe is departing Brothers & Sisters later this season, the actor's spokesperson confirms.


According to Deadline Hollywood, which first broke the news, Lowe felt he was being underutilized on the ABC drama and asked to be released from his contract. The network granted his request and he'll leave at the end of the season.


Deadline is also reporting that ABC wants to remain in business with Lowe and is talking to him about headlining his own series.


There's no word how B&S plans to write out Lowe's dreadfully boring character, but a Robert-Kitty divorce seems the likeliest scenario given the couple's recent marital woes. Either that or his ticker finally gives out.


Which scenario would you prefer? And will you miss him? Sound off below!

I find that to be an extreme disappointment and honestly I found him to be a key figure in the show. Yes there are a lot of strong characters but he held a great role I believe, and I loved him in this show. Yes he is a heart throb but him leaving I think will kill ratings, that is after we find out just how he is leaving, via heart attack or marriage. I dont think they are going to do the marriage woes especially since Kitty just went through so much...but she is starting to run again...that could put the fire out. Another heart attack likely or a car accident. Marriage woes aren't enough to kick him off the show...its going to be a death.

NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! He is awesome on teh show. I love his character and he's about the only sane person on the show. He balances out all teh family drama with some real issues in teh workplace, in the world. I don't see how they will pull this off....... I will surely miss him.

itll be a death. unless they want him to come back at a later point, but by the sounds of this article that isnt likely to happen. I will miss him but to be fair it might spice things up a bit.
