Jennifer Esposito Joins ABC’s Cast of ‘Mistresses’
Jennifer Esposito is joining the cast of ABC’s Mistresses for the drama’s third season.
The actress will not be replacing Alyssa Milano who opted to leave the show after TPTB opted to move the show’s production to Canada. Instead, Esposito will play ‘Calista Raines,’ the creative director of a luxury fashion brand.
“After two wonderful seasons in Los Angeles, the studio has decided to shoot season three of Mistresses in Vancouver, Canada, for financial reasons,” Milano posted on her site in October. “It’s with a heavy heart that I have decided that I can’t relocate.”
She continued, “I have two babies under 4. Being a mother and wife comes first and I just cannot uproot my children and separate the family by moving away.”
Season 3 of Mistresses begins sometime later this year.
