From a Washington Post Chat:
"Des Moines, Iowa: Has Janel Maloney left the West Wing? Say it ain't so.
Debra Leithauser: We saw her in the season premiere, getting all huffy with Josh again. (Don't you just love the tension between those two?) Our sources say she's back for the whole season".
From TV Guide's Ask Ausiello:
Question: Ausiello, please, please, please tell us if Janel Moloney is getting written off The West Wing. I just watched the premiere, and I'm feeling pretty hopeless. — Rosalba
Ausiello: No, just like the rest of the show's original cast, Janel will be around for roughly half of this season's episodes. And (MAJOR SPOILER ALERT -highlight) I'm hearing Josh and Donna will be working together again very soon.
