TV One has renewed "R&B Divas Atlanta" for a third season. Production begins this month.
But three cast members are leaving: Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert and LaTocha Scott, a TV One spokeswoman confirmed.
Four others are coming back for sure: Syleena Johnson, Angie Stone, Monifah Carter and Keke Wyatt.
The network did not explain why the three are leaving or whether there will be replacements forthcoming.
The show is one of the network's highest performing programs. A spin-off in Los Angeles was renewed as well for a second season.
Evans and Gilbert were original cast members. Scott, formerly of Xscape, lasted just the second season.
Evans' departure probably isn't a surprise. She didn't even show up for the reunion show and was clearly sick of the drama some of the other cast members were generating.
