Sources confirm that producers have opted not to pick up A.J. Cook’s contract option for next season. Which is a fancy way of saying girlfriend was fired.
Meanwhile, fellow cast member Paget Brewster is in talks to remain a series regular, although her episode count is expected to be reduced.
The decision to cut Cook — and cut back Brewster — was made for financial creative reasons. A new actress will be brought in later in the season to fill the void left by Cook.
