Rob Lowe is departing Brothers & Sisters later this season.
In the much-loved ABC drama, Lowe plays Senator Robert McCallister, wife to Calista Flockhart's Kitty. His character has recently endured a number of hardships, including a heart attack, his wife's affair and his wife's cancer.
According to Deadline Hollywood, which first broke the news, Lowe felt he was being underutilized and asked to be released from his contract. The network granted his request and he will leave at the end of the season. Lowe's spokesperson confirmed his departure.
No word yet on how ABC plans to kill off the hunky politician. The most likely option is a Robert-Kitty divorce. With Kitty set to run for office, Robert's ego is sure to get bruised.
