DeciderTV has learned actor Gyton Grantley will not be returning for the upcoming fifth season of House Husbands, a decision that will also bring to an end Darren McMullan's current stint with the show.
This is despite the recent use of Grantley's image in promo shots doing the rounds. Grantley is currently in Los Angeles taking meetings and auditions for his big push into Hollywood, something many consider long overdue for the talented actor.
Grantley has been with the series since it started in 2012, playing Kane - brother to Abi (Natalie Saleeba), partner initially to Tom (Tim Campbell), and last season partner to Alex (Darren McMullan).
It will leave quite a hole in the plotting of the new series after 2015 ended with Kane and Alex getting married and the couple preparing to become fathers to an IVF baby with Eve (Justine Clarke)
Nine were contacted for comment and offered they were "in discussions" (no word with whom).
