Colton Haynes: Jackson Is Not Returning for “Teen Wolf” Season 3

It’s a sad day for fans of “Teen Wolf.”

On Thursday, Colton Haynes tweeted out, “These past few yrs have been the best of my life. I’m sad that this chapter has ended, but excited for a new one to begin. Thx for the love.”

Rumors immediately began circulating that Colton left “Teen Wolf” and it looks like it’s true. The show took to their official tumblr to say, “We were just as surprised and disappointed as Colton’s fans to read about his decision to leave the show. We want him to return for a third season, as he has for the past two, but if this is his decision we respect that and will wish him all the best. We are excited for what Jeff Davis and producers have in store for our incredible cast in the upcoming third season.”

A source told US Weekly about the exit, “It’s not that he didn’t want to return because he did. It’s that the heads of the show wanted to limit him to only appearing on half the season — 12 episodes, not 24. If he did the 12 episodes, he would not be able to work on anything else during the 12 episodes he’s not on.”

Are you bummed that Jackson won’t be returning after the big season 2 finale? How do you think he will be written off? Now that Jackson is gone, will Stiles have a chance with Lydia?

Although we’ll miss him on “Teen Wolf,” we cannot wait to see what Colton does next!
