This season marks a significant change as it bids a bittersweet farewell to Amy Allan, a dedicated partner to [Steve] DiSchiavi for over 200 episodes,” the network stated in a press release. “As a gifted physical medium, Allan has been a fundamental part of the team since the show’s inception in 2011.”
