Details about the departure of Joel Silver and Chip Johannessen are sparse, although reports from the set indicate behind-the-scenes upheaval as the reason for their release.

The show still has four episodes left to film now that the WGA strikes have been resolved, however it’s unlikely that a permanent showrunner will be appointed considering that its renewal status is still up in the air. The episodes are expected to air in April and May.
