"My heart is heavy. ? Pitch will not be returning," Bunbury wrote in a heartbreaking message. "I don't have some eloquently thought out caption, because I'm still processing it all. Ginny Baker has profoundly changed my life and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to play a role that resonated with so many people."
"I wasn't ready to let go of Ginny, but more than anything I wasn't ready to let go of my Pitch family- the cast, crew, creators and writers, thank you for the magic," she continued. "MOST IMPORTANTLY!!!- Thank you to all of the fans who took the journey with us! Your support and love for the show has always moved us deeply! I love you all. ❤️."
ET named Bunbury one our fall TV breakout stars in September, and surprised her with the award while she was filming on location at Los Angeles' Dodger Stadium.
“Oh my gosh, what? Wow, this is really sweet. I feel like I’m going to cry,” Bunbury said, breaking down in tears upon receiving the award. “This is cool. I really appreciate it. Why would you make me cry?!”
