And the Hamptons loses another regular!

Ashley Madekwe, who plays Emily's (Emily VanCamp) scheming BFF and Grayson family PR spokesperson Ashley Davenport, will not be returning for Revenge's third season, sources confirm to E! News. 

Madekwe is just the ABC sudser's latest exit: Connor Paolo's character Declan was killed off in the season two finale and creator Mike Kelley will not be returning in season three, with Sunil Nayar taking over showrunner duties.

Deadline, who first reported the news of Madekwe's exit, says the actress' option was not picked up due to "storyline reasons." 

ABC had no comment on Madekwe's exit. 

After an uneven sophomore season that saw a decline in ratings, Kelley announced in April that he would be departing Revenge, calling it a " difficult mutual decision" between him and ABC. "Helming this series has been the ride of a lifetime," Kelley said.
