Showtime announced Saturday that series regulars Morena Baccarin and Morgan Saylor won’t be returning as series regulars on season four. According to TV Line, that’s because this current season, which wraps up on Sunday night, focused much less on Nicholas Brody’s home life (the two actresses play his wife, Jessica, and daughter, Dana, respectively), and also because Baccarin was actually pregnant for most of it. Or maybe no one could stand to be around Mandy Patinkin without the beard. While it’s all very sad, just know the door has been left open for both to return as guest stars in the future — like Diego Klattenhoff’s Mike did when he left for NBC’s The Black List last season.

*The post has been corrected to show that Morena Baccarin plays Nicholas Brody’s wife, Jessica, not his daughter.
