After just having a baby this past month, Alyssa Milano is calling it quits with her ABC drama.

The 41-year-old actress announced on both Twitter and Facebook that she will not be returning for the third season of Mistresses. "After two wonderful seasons in Los Angeles, the studio has decided to shoot season three of Mistresses in Vancouver, Canada, for financial reasons. It's with a heavy heart that I have decided that I can't relocate," the former Charmed star wrote.

Further explaining her decision, she added, "I have two babies under four. Being a mother and wife comes first and I just cannot uproot my children and separate the family by moving away. I will miss this job desperately and wish everyone the absolute best."

In the series, Milano played a lawyer Savannah "Savi" Davis who, at the end of season 2, catches her ex-husband Harry (Brett Tucker) getting it on with her sister Joss (Jess Macallan). No word yet on whether Savi will be written off or they will recast Milano's character.

Milano and her husband David Bugliari welcomed their daughter Elizabella Dylan Bugliari into the world on Sept. 4. This is the second child for the couple. They also have a three-year-old son named Milo Thomas Bugliari. Check out Milano's maternity styles, below:
