“It’s official: Julia Roberts’ time in front of the cameras on Amazon’s ‘Homecoming’ has come to an end.”
The story continues, “Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Roberts’ initial deal for ‘Homecoming’— the star’s first TV series regular role — was for a one-season commitment based purely on the Amazon drama’s creative storyline. That said, Roberts will still remain involved as an executive producer alongside showrunner Sam Esmail on the Universal Cable Productions series that landed at Amazon with a two-season commitment.
“It’s unclear if there will be any other major cast departures for season two or if any of the other freshman stars — including Stephan James, Bobby Cannavale, Shea Whigham, Alex Karpovsky and Sissy Spacek — will return. Amazon and UCP declined comment.”
