TVLine has learned exclusively that Spencer Daniels, who plays Violet’s baby daddy Luke, will not be a series regular when the comedy returns next fall. The change doesn’t come as a big surprise, as Daniels’ character did not appear in the final 14 episodes of Season 2, getting phased out after Violet gave her baby up for adoption.
