The L.A. Times reports:
“Ross in a statement said that “Reed Between the Lines” was a show “I believe in and care about” and that there was a “chance” she might return at some point. Loretha Jones, BET’s president of original programming and news, called Ross “an amazing talent,” adding, “We wish her nothing but the best and hope to work with her again in the future.
[...] When the second season launches next July, the couple will be separated. Carla, a psychologist, has moved from Atlanta to Los Angeles to take a ‘dream job’ and hopes the family will join her. But Alex, a university professor and stay-at-home dad, doesn’t feel a move is right for the children and chooses to stay in Atlanta.”
While many fans are puzzled by the abrupt exit, it seems the network has already worked out the kinks. Reed will also welcome three new cast member– Michole White, Tony Rock and Charlie Robinson.
White and Rock will reportedly play Alex’s old friends who support him through his rocky marriage and help him raise the couple’s three children. Robinson will play Alex’s father.
