Prepare to collectively gasp with the unfortunate cast news regarding a Teen Wolf fan favorite.
This week the second half of Teen Wolf’s third season concluded which saw the demise of Aiden, resulting in his brother Ethan leaving Beacon Hills as well. The penultimate episodes brought the death of beloved character Allison Argent, and prepare to lose another favorite…. Isaac Lahey.
Jeff Davis spoke with E! Online earlier, and confirmed the departure of actor Daniel Sharman who plays Isaac, who has been a recurring cast member since the second season. “Daniel Sharman came to us, much like Crystal did, and said that he wanted to go out for pilot season and for movies and try something new.” And while you’re probably anxious as to what this means for Isaac, have no fear, he won’t be written out through a death. (ex. Allison) Davis elaborated,
“He specifically asked that we not kill off Isaac, so that he could have the chance to return. He said he loved the role so much that he wanted to be able to come back if there was a chance, but he was at a position where he wanted to stretch his creative wings and I said to him, ‘Well, if we can’t convince you to come back, we’ll definitely leave the door open for you. It was totally his decision, but he really loves the show. He sends me the nicest texts in the world. He loves the show and he specifically asked not to be killed off, so that he could come back someday. Whether it’s the fourth season or later, I would say there’s a good possibility of it.”
I’m relieved to hear that they will in fact leave an option for him to return while he works towards new opportunities, and sincerely hope he will eventually come back as an official cast member. Seriously though, who doesn’t love Isaac?!
Good luck on your new career quests Daniel! We can’t wait to see what is in store for you next, but please come back soon you’re already missed!
