No Jackson for Teen Wolf Season 3

He may have shown up for Tyler Posey's big 21st birthday bash in Vegas, but despite his popularity and central role in the series Colton Haynes won't be returning for the expanded season 3 of Teen Wolf.

"These past few yrs have been the best of my life," Haynes confirmed on Twitter. "I'm sad that this chapter has ended, but excited for a new one to begin. Thx for the love."

MTV has reluctantly admitted what fans have been whispering to each other, aghast, for weeks: Haynes has suddenly and unexpectedly walked away from the show.

"We were just as surprised and disappointed as Colton's fans to read out about his decision to leave the show," read an MTV statement on its Facebook page earlier in the month. "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."

Said Posey at Comic-Con: "It's disappointing news. Colton is a friend, he's a good friend. We're going to leave the door open for him to come back if he so decides, but I think Colton has to do what's best for him and his career. It's show business, and some people have to move on if they feel they have to do something else creatively. Colton's a good actor, and he's going to have a fine career."

Having played jock/werewolf Brett Crezski in The Gates and then jock/kanima/werewolf Jackson Whittemore in Teen Wolf, Haynes may certainly be looking to branch out into non-shapeshifting-jock roles.

But is just quitting between seasons, without letting them write you out, the best way to exit a hit series? Conflicting behind-the-scenes reports have Haynes's departure a reaction to Jeff Davis's cutting back Jackson's presence in season 3, which might in turn have been a retaliation for Haynes working another project--so says E! News, for example. The fact is, we don't know why Haynes left, but he should get the benefit of the doubt, no matter how easy it is to imagine the more genial Haynes acting like his brutally arrogant character.

One thing is absolutely certain: Davis and MTV will make sure that the loss of Jackson's shirtlessness in season 3 will be more than made up for.
