Default Aries Spears to leave MADtv mid season!

We here at PlanetMADtv.com have received some more information regarding the departure of Aries Spears from MADtv. A number of sources informed us that this would definitely be his final season on the show, but an email we received today confirmed that Aries would be leaving in February, much like the departure of Mo Collins last season. This information came from a fan who was present at Aries' Stand Up set at Carolines in NYC.

Aries has an extensive history on the show, with only one other Cast Member, Debra Wilson, spending more time on MADtv than he has. What with his recent success on Late Night shows, I am sure we will be seeing great things from Aries in the future.

Default I am not sure ANYONE can fill his shoes...

Aries was there for a LONG time and added quite a bit to the cast. I too, am sorry to see him leave, because I found a LOT of his stuff funny as hell. Good luck to Aries...

I didn't mind Aries initially, but in these last few seasons I haven't liked him much at all. I feel like it is his time to go. He has had some great moments on the show though, and will be missed.

With Aries leaving mid-year, the longest tenure on the series will be Michael Mcdonald and after that Stephaine Weir.

It just depends on how the contracts are set up..........For example Mo decided to leave the show after season 8 when her 5 year contract was up..........But then decided to sign on for 13 more episodes.............

But why not just sign on for 25, instead of only 13???

Because she originally wanted to move on after her original 5 year contract was up.......But she decided to sign on for "one more bite" yknow to compromise in a way to make both the show and herself happy............

Haha, same here, except they'd probably fire me for being annoying before my contract was up...

But Aries leaving isnt much at all with me. He kinda got annoying after a few seasons, and he's had some good momnets, but its time to let Keegan and Jordan shine

I've seen Aries and a lot of shows in the past few weeks (Tough Crowd with Colon Quinn, Conan O'brien, 106 and Park [some show on BET], Rides [a TLC show], and MTV), so I'm more than sure he'll do fine after he leaves MADtv. He may even be bigger than Orlando Jones.

But whatever he does, I wish him the best of luck in his career.

Yay! Aries is leaving! He drags out sketches, and causes them to run longer. I wonder if he will make any guest appearances??? amazing, nearly 6 or so seasons, and still no recurring character except for Belma Buttons and his celeb personalities.
