    I haven't read anything definite as of yet but looking at the CBC promos for the fall season, it looks like there is a new character joining the cast this season and by his attire, he looks to be replacing Reverend Magee (Derek McGrath). A shame if true as I liked Magee's character quite a bit (now, if they had recast the Mayor, I wouldn't mind as much....hasn't developed much character wise over three years).

    Yeah it is a shame. McGee was a great, very tolerant religious character - always nice to see those. His friendship with Amar was fun to watch.

    Still, last season did leave me feeling like they were somewhat short of ideas so maybe a new character will spice things up a little, make character interactions with the new priest hilarious etc.

    Yah, I miss Dr.J, i mean Derek McGrath. I always wondered if the Mayor is his wife in real life? Maybe Dr.J signed a 3 year contract just so SHE could get a role.

    The most annoying thing I found was how they explained his absence..."he left" is so weak. I mean, they could have said something else that had a comedic edge to it...wasn't Magee a fan of a rock group, for example? Say he left to go on the road and follow that band as a fan.

    Maybe he left to help Andrew. I mean Jerry O'Connell. I mean, "an old neighbor"

    They are not related in any way. The last name is just a coincidence.
