Santino Fontana, who plays Greg, has left the show. His character has finally accepted that he is an alcoholic and moves to Atlanta to be a student at Emory University. He also told Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) that he loves her.

“The CW was kind enough to give me a one-year contract because of what I thought would be best for my family and my life [in New York],” he said. “I never, ever in a million years thought they would let me do that.”

“There was a lot of time where we didn’t know if the show would be coming back. In that interim, I had some opportunities both with films and theater and writing that presented themselves, and I had no idea what was going to happen,” he told Vulture. “Also keep in mind, I didn’t know my future with the show regardless, and I didn’t know if the show would be coming back. So when we did get picked up, I was in a really tricky spot because I had a bunch of things that I already committed to, and I couldn’t in good conscience back out of them. It was a really tough decision, and it had a lot to do with my family and my base in New York.”
