NBC announced on Tuesday that it has renewed Las Vegas (Fridays, 9 pm/ET) for a fifth season. But as scooped by Ausiello and detailed in Wednesday's Hollywood Reporter, the series is moving forward minus two original cast members.

Having launched with the likes of James Caan, Nikki Cox, Josh Duhamel, James Lesure, Molly Simms and Vanessa Marcil, ( SPOILER ALERT) it is the first two listed there who are not returning for Season 5. "I've had a wonderful four years, worked with great people and made friends for life working on Las Vegas. But I'm eager to return to where my heart is, which is film, and due to the show's schedule, I missed some great opportunities to do that," Caan says. "I wish the show and everyone involved with it continued success." Cox, meanwhile, says she is "very sad and shocked" to leave, but wishes her cast mates all the best. "I had a great time."
