At the end of the first season of Colony, Thora Birch was seen as Morgan, a highly-intelligent computer whiz with a conscience. However, Due to scheduling conflicts, Birch will not be able to continue her role in the second season. We at Voice of TV have learned that One Tree Hill alumna Bethany Joy Lenz will take over the role.

The casting change shouldn't make a big difference since Birch came in at the end of the first season. For fans though, we are a little disappointed since we have not seen the actress in many big projects in the past few years. Maybe she will come back if the character is still alive for season 3, if renewed by FX.

As for her new projects, Birch will have two new movies coming out next year. The Etruscan Smile and Above Suspicion.

The second season of Colony is set to premiere early next year.
