Who is likely to fill his position?
So after Victor Garber’s leave from the series, many fans have been speculating about the future of the show. A character change is never an easily acceptable factor but fears not as Victor Garber is not being replaced.
The production team had the heads up of him leaving for a long time now and they have planned well of giving Garber’s character, Dr. Stein a proper send-off for season 3. The 68-year-old will have many guest features but since he is a part and brains of the loved character ‘Firestorm’, fans may not get to see firestorm for long.
