Famke stated at the July 2017 Denver Comic-Con that the original X-Men cast will not be returning to the series:
I think we’re done, but it was really great while it lasted and it lasted for a long time. It’s been nothing but a pleasure working not just as Jean Grey, which was such an honor because comics were so fantastic already, but then the entire cast who I got to play with, all my fellow actors, thespians who are so talented. It was just a wonderful experience. I’m very grateful.
Jean Grey is now played by Sophie Turner in the X-Men series.
