Will Colton Haynes play a role on Teen Wolf Season 3?

No, according to the actor, who shocked fans yesterday by sending the following Tweet in regard to his status on this MTV smash:

“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.

Haynes has portrayed the beloved character of Jackson for two seasons, turning into a werewolf on the summer finale after the series revealed him to be the Kanima.


MTV, meanwhile, which doubled the show’s order to 24 episodes for its 2013 run, appears to dispute the actor’s departure.

It released a statement in response that claims there is “absolutely no truth that Colton is being pushed out or that he, or any cast member, is being replaced. We love Colton and look forward to his returning with the entire cast for Season 3 of Teen Wolf.”

Sources say the two sides clashes over a new contract and the first five episodes of the new season have definitely been written – and Jackson does not appear in any scenes.
