On the heels of creator Mike Kelley’s departure and Declan’s death, the red sharpie is out again — and this time, it’s crossing Ashley off the cast list!

There’s about as many plot twists on Revenge off-screen as there are on-screen! After two seasons of scheming her way around the Hamptons and among the Graysons as Ashley Davenport, actress Ashley Madekwe will not be returning in the fall for the series’ third season.

Season 3 Shake-Ups For ‘Revenge’

After creator Mike Kelley announced he was leaving the show in April and Connor Paolo’s Declan died in the season two finale, it didn’t seem likely we would lose another member of the show. But in true Revenge fashion, the show shocked us again when news broke on‘s sister site TVLine that Ashley wouldn’t be returning.

The actress confirmed her departure May 31 on Twitter.

“Yes it’s true I’m leaving Revenge,” she tweeted. “I’ve LOVED playing Ashley Davenport but after 2 seasons there is no longer a story left for me to tell…”

Ashley’s Epic Way She Wants Her Character To Be Sent Off

Ashley also offered her idea for how she would like to see her character leave the series and we must say we wouldn’t expect anything less.

She tweeted, “My preference is that Ashley Davenport dies in a blaze of glory. Preferable whilst wearing Valentino couture….Or Chanel. I’m not fussy.”

We’re sure the writers will find a way to send Ashley off with deserved shock value and Ashley dressed to the nines.

Are you bummed that Ashley Madekwe isn’t returning for season three, HollywoodLifers? How do you think she should be written off? Let us know in the comments below!
