Julia Roberts replaced by Jennifer Garner in The Last Thing He Told Me

Apple’s latest TV series The Last Thing He Told Me has had a cast shake up already, with Julia Roberts being replaced by another star.

The drama, which is based on Laura Dave’s best-selling novel of the same name, was set to star Roberts as the lead, but Variety is now reporting that Jennifer Garner has taken over.

It’s believed Roberts pulled out of the mini-series because of a scheduling issue.

Hoping to be another hit for Apple TV+, The Last Thing He Told Me follows Hannah, a woman who forms an unexpected relationship with her teenage step-daughter.

The pair grow closer when Hannah decides to search for the truth surrounding her husband’s mysterious disappearance.

Author Laura Dave is adapting her book for the small screen alongside her husband Josh Singer. Both are expected to serve as executive producers alongside frequent Apple collaborator Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter.

Meanwhile, in other Apple TV+ news, Ted Lasso star Brett Goldstein recently gave fans an update on what can be expected after season three – and the answer, for now, is unclear.

Goldstein, who plays AFC Richmond’s irritable captain-turned-coach Roy Kent, revealed that the creators originally had a “three-season arc planned” for the hit comedy series.

“We are writing the end of that story,” the actor said, before admitting that the future of Ted Lasso beyond the next season is up in the air.

“Whether there’ll be more after that, we’ll see, I genuinely don’t know,” he said. “But I do know that the story that we were telling over three years will be complete.”
