Is Dr. Brenda Grettenberger leaving “The Incredible Dr. Pol?”

For most reality TV series, comings and goings are part of the plan. Producers deliberately introduce new characters to spice up the series. In most cases, they change the entire cast by keeping only a few of the members. While the formula might be useful in reality TV series that depend on introducing fresh faces, it is pretty much useless for series like The Incredible Dr. Pol. Focused on Dr. Pol and his crew, the series depends on the performance of the doctors. So when news broke out that Dr. Brenda Grettenberger would be leaving the show, it sent fans into a meltdown.
