Milano announced the news herself on her website. "After two wonderful seasons in Los Angeles, the studio has decided to shoot season three of Mistresses in Vancouver, Canada for financial reasons," she wrote. "It's with a heavy heart that I have decided that I can't relocate. I have two babies under 4. Being a mother and wife comes first and I just can not uproot my children and separate the family by moving away. I will miss this job desperately and wish everyone the absolute best." 

Milano and her husband, David Bugliari, welcomed their second child, a daughter named Elizabeth, earlier this month. They also have a son, Milo, 3.

There's no word on whether Milano's character, Savannah "Savi" Davis, will be recast or written out of Mistresses.
