That is what I am thinking for Muncy too.

I don't think the actress playing Muncy knew she'd be written out TBH, but I believe Brent knew on OC as he 'd asked for it so he could pursue other projects.

He could have asked later on so known in that moment, or arranged from the start to just have the one season. It could be the same for Molly or it may have been a loose contract which stated a certain amount of episodes for this season, uncertain if it a contract for the following season would be continued.

I think most new characters are one season simply because they want to gauge popularity with the audience.

I think they'd hate to sign someone for 3 seasons, only for them to not be well received.

I don't think it used to be that way but now with Social Media and people/fans able to share their reactions with a click...the execs want to make sure someone new is liked first.

Maybe. NCIS & SVU had characters early on who were only signed on for a few episodes or one episode but then are still on the shows. Slightly different situations though. NCIS has a character who started off in S1 as reoccurring, but I think he was just meant to be in the one ep at first. But they brought him back & then made him a main in the second season. Then their now medical examiner was just meant to appear in one episode in S1 but he clicked so well with the first medical examiner that they kept him. SVU had Fin who I think was signed on for 5 episodes? It was only a few but obviously they extended it & he's still here. Both shows at least looked at how well the cast members interact, if not some viewer response, before then keeping these characters around. But now it is a LOT easier to see fan reaction. So possibly more reason to be wary of contracts being too long.

That's the thing too, Fin was originally only set for a few episodes but fans loved him so much he became a regular and 22 years later....

A different tactic too would be for actual applicants that Benson interviews and not just 'so and so was transferred'.
