Buzzfeed is reporting that both Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones will be leaving the series in Season 6. The pair will exit the show for good around the 13th episode. At this moment, no one is 100 percent sure what the reason is for their exit, but some sources are saying it is a budgetary issue.
Michael Schur released a statement:
“The news about Rob and Rashida is true — they will be leaving the show after the 13th episode of the upcoming season six. We’ve been working on their storyline (on and off) for four seasons now, and heading into this year, with the two of them contemplating parenthood, it felt like a natural time to move them into the next phase.”
Stay tuned as more details become available.
