After the announcement of the departure of Lionel Astier from “Alex Hugo” last May, another key character is about to say goodbye to the police series of France 3.
After more than 7 years on the air, Alex Hugo remains one of the flagship detective series of France Télévisions. Originally broadcast on France 2, this fiction carried by Samuel Le Bihan continues to seduce viewers.
On September 28, on the occasion of its first broadcast evening on France 3, it thus succeeded in beating TF1 and Koh Lanta by bringing together more than 5.87 million fans in front of their television screens. Despite the resounding success, Lionnel Astier, who has played Angelo Batalla since the launch, announced his departure from the series last May in order to devote himself to new projects.
And according to information from Leisure TV, fans are going to have to prepare to say goodbye to another character. Marilyne Canto, who has played since 2015 Christine Dorval, the commissioner of the judicial police of Marseille, has indeed announced her decision to leave the adventure.
The actress wishes, like Lionnel Astier, to embark on new professional projects. Like his co-star, his departure will not be effective immediately since the channel still has several episodes ready to be broadcast, and others are currently in post-production.
It remains to be seen what awaits Alex Hugo in the coming seasons. Are new players going to join the distribution? Are some characters going to have promotions? For the moment, no information has been communicated on the subject, but for Samuel Le Bihan, who had reacted at the time of the announcement of the departure of Lionel Astier, these changes are the ideal opportunity to breathe new life into to the series.
