The cast has already turned over so this isn't some new bit of news.
Then it sounds like we're agreeing to some extent, lol. And I'd like to point one thing out - the reason I brought this up has nothing to do with the fact that my favorites are no longer on the show. It has to do with the fact that in the past two weeks, we've seen no less than 5 or 6 casting spoilers for new characters. That's why I mentioned it in this thread. Each time I see a new casting spoiler, I think, NO, not another one! And, Tim, I thought the same thing in 07 when my favorites were still on the show - though it sounds from what you're saying like we would have disagreed then too.

I understand your point about secondary vs. primary characters, but I do think that Dena and this team include more secondary characters and write them in a more significant way than JER's team did. Father Jansen was a secondary character who played a large role - but were there six others like him at the same time? I feel like the cast now is cluttered with these types of characters, as opposed to in the 90's when the main characters drove the story.
