Worried about your favorite characters? Don’t be. It’s quite normal for both on-the-rise and well-established TV shows to go through major adjustments when it comes to casting changes. While some actors are lucky enough to score a new role or come back to reprise their part, others are unluckier and are given the boot.

So who’s in and who’s out? Lucky for you, we’ve created a list of all the major casting changes for Fall 2017. Keep reading to find out if your favorite characters made it on our list. You just might be surprised by what you find.
