'Smash' is going to be a very different show when it returns for season 2 in 2013, and now we've got a much clearer picture of how.  Previously, we learned that Dev, Ellis and Julia's husband Michael would make their exit, and that several new characters have been cast recently for series regular roles.  So, who's the latest to join the ensemble?

Considering that NBC musical hit 'Smash' only aired thirteen episodes beginning at mid-season this year, and won't return until 2013, it might be difficult to have a clear sense of the show given all the recent changes, and castings we've heard about.  Still, with so many season 1 plot lines thrown out the window, what's going to dominate 'Smash' season 2 when it bows next year?

What we're coming to like about 'Smash' more and more is how it appropriately casts actors with ties to the New York theatre scene, rather than simply picking pretty faces out of Hollywood.  Sure' we've got Jennifer Hudson on deck to play a large role in 'Smash' season 2, but who's the latest true Broadway star to land a role in NBC's hotly-debated musical hit?

'Smash' had a rough first season, but so do most shows when they're trying to find their footing - it's hard to name a great show where its first season isn't it's worst. The show has gone through a heavy makeover for season two, they've already removed hated characters and added new ones, and they've just made another smart decision: hiring Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson for a couple episode arc.

'Smash' is going to be a very different show when it finally picks back up for a second season, and now we're starting to get a look at how.  We already knew the big news that Raza Jaffrey and Jaime Cepero, actors behind the first season's most abhorred characters Dev and Ellis would make a discreet exit, as well as several others, but now season 2 is starting to shape up under new show-runner Josh Saphran.  So, who's the latest to join the ensemble?

'Smash' Cuts Two Series Regulars From the Cast, But Who?

Those who took in the first season of NBC's midseason musical drama 'Smash' know that it's inaugural run felt far from perfect, many critics maligning the presence of certain characters who contributed nothing to the series and only meddled in the affairs of an otherwise-solid storyline.  We've already seen that 'Smash' will add three new series regulars next season and change show-runners, so who's getting the boot?

'Smash' Season 2 Adding Three New Series Regulars, So Who's Leaving?

The first season of NBC's buzz-worthy hit 'Smash' may have come and gone, leaving most rather miffed about the possibility of a second season, though with new show-runner Josh Safran ('Gossip Girl') in place, "Bombshell" might just be ripe for the shakeup we all need.  And what better way to shake things up by bringing in one one, but three new cast members?

Who Won't Be Returning to 'Smash' Next Year?

The future of NBC's current star-maker 'Smash' hadn't been in doubt, given the solid ratings and buzz for the musical series, and even the departure of show-runner Theresa Rebeck the very day its season 2 renewal was announced didn't pull any plugs.  So with Rebeck out, who's been tapped to headline the 'Smash'ing attempt to chronicle development on a Marilyn Monroe musical?
