From a media release:
CBC DRAGON ROBERT HERJAVEC DEPARTS THE DEN
CBC Television announced today that Robert Herjavec, one of five entrepreneurs on the hit series DRAGONSâ€™ DEN, will not be returning to DRAGONSâ€™ DEN for the 2012-2013 season.
â€œRobertâ€”one of our original Dragonsâ€”has been a positive role model for many Canadian entrepreneurs,â€ said Julie Bristow, executive director of studio and unscripted programming. â€œWhile weâ€™re sorry to see him go after six phenomenally successful seasons, we wish him well in his future endeavours.â€
A search for a new Dragon is currently in progress, Bristow said, with casting taking place this week. â€œWe anticipate that, as with all the Dragons, the new Dragon will bring his or her own unpredictable chemistry to this exciting show.â€
