[ # ] Bob Hearts Abishola demotes all but two of their actors
April 27th, 2023 under Chuck Lorre

Back in January, CBS picked up Bob Hearts Abishola for a 5th season, and everyone was happy about it. That is until a few days ago. Because 11 out of the 13 cast members found out they were being demoted from series regular to recurring.

According to Deadline, Billy Gardell as Bob and Folake Olowafoyeku as Abishola will appear in all 13 episodes. However, Matt Jones as Douglas, Tony Okengbowa as Kofo, Barry Shabaka Henley as Uncle Tunde, Shola Adewusi as Auntie Olu, Bayo Akinfemi as Goodwin, Christine Ebersole as Dottie, Maribeth Monroe as Christina, Saidah Afrika Ekulona as Edunoluwa, Gina Yashere as Kemi, Travis Wolfe, Jr. as Dele, and Vernee Watson as Gloria will appear in a minimum of five episodes. That is, if they decided to sign on. They are not being held to exclusivity and can find other work if they opt to do that.

Deadline says that they are not sure if the series will go past the 13 episodes. The 13th episode could be the series finale.

While I would hate for this Chuck Lorre sitcom to end, I can understand their decision.

But I hope they consider that the show has been so positive for the Nigerian community. And we need more shows that highlight other cultures and not less.
