Zachary Levi and Missy Peregrym’s surprise wedding last year has been promptly followed up with a surprise split: The two are divorcing.

The “Rookie Blue” actress, who took Levi’s legal last name of Pugh, filed her dissolution of marriage petition in Los Angeles last week citing irreconcilable differences, according to court documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times on Monday.

The “Reaper” alum is also looking to change her legal name back to Peregrym from Pugh.

The official split comes just 10 months after the couple tied the knot in Maui in June, but the marriage seems to have hit a rough patch shortly after they said, “I do.” Peregrym listed their date of separation as Dec. 3, 2014, giving the newlyweds just under six months in the honeymoon phase.


Levi, who played a computer geek-turned-secret agent in the Emmy-winning “Chuck,” married Peregrym in a little event the bride and groom referred to as an impromptu “coffee date.” They announced that they were married in his-and-hers Twitter posts that showed them in matching Mr.-and-Mrs. hoodies.

Peregrym is not asking for spousal support, and there’s no community property, the documents said. They have no children together.

As of Monday afternoon, Levi had not filed a response.

Reps for both actors did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
