Fans aren't loving the fact that Jordan's character was recast.

The recasting of Jordan hasn't been without controversy, as fans of Sistas have expressed mixed emotions about the change. Some fans have been particularly vocal about it. The idea that the new actor may not fit the mold of Andi's ideal love interest has led to skepticism and disappointment among viewers.

How the show handled the character recast has left fans perplexed. The show didn't acknowledge or explain the change within the storyline.

The abrupt transition between actors without addressing the change is leaving fans feeling disconnected.

Sean took to Instagram to address the casting change.

In a Jan. 4 post on Instagram, Sean shared a video of him behind the scenes of the show. In the caption, he wrote, "To all my Sistas family, sorry I can’t be on your screens and be a part of this season! But I just want to say thank you for all the messages and love you’ve shown me.

"[It] honestly means more than you know. And hey, who knows what the future holds? Massive thank you to all the squad for making me feel so welcome."

Per The Sun, the role of Jordan was recast because Sean scored a lead role on NCIS: Sydney, and there were scheduling conflicts with Sistas. Hey, at least it was for a great reason!

Despite the initial backlash, Devin Way is giving off good vibes.

While Jordan being recast was a bit jarring at first, it also provided an opportunity for the narrative to evolve and surprise audiences. As Season 7 unfolds, viewers can anticipate Devin infusing his own flair into the character and offering a fresh take on Jordan's role in the web of relationships and drama that defines the show!

The recasting of Jordan in Season 7 has undoubtedly stirred the pot, but Devin's portrayal brings a new energy to the character. The recast signals an exciting journey filled with unexpected twists and turns. Even though initial reactions have been mixed, we think Devin has a chance to win over Sistas fans.
