Teen Wolf fan favorite Daniel Sharman, who’s played broody werewolf Isaac Lahey since Season 2 will not return for the series fourth series reports E! Online.
Executive producer Jeff Davis revealed to E! News that Daniel Sharman would not return for the fourth season when it returns in June. “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.”
It’s been a rough two weeks for Teen Wolf fans, following the departure of original cast member Crystal Reed, which led to the murder of her character Alison; and Max Carver, whose character Aiden was killed in the season finale. Fortunately for fans of Isaac, he won’t be meeting a similar fate.
“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,” said Davis. “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.”
Isaac was last seen heading to France with Alison father’s Argent (JR Bourne). “The story is going to be that Argent sort of takes a sabbatical in France to deal with the death of his daughter and Isaac goes with him, that’s why you see them leaving out the door,” reveals the producer of how Isaac’s exit will be addressed.
Stars returning next season include Tyler Posey, Holland Roden, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Arden Cho, Jill Wagner, Shelley Hennig and Linden Ashby among others. Joining them will be new cast additions Mason Dye (Flowers in the Attic) as Garrett, Khylin Rhambo as Mason, Dylan Sprayberry (Man of Steel).
The fourth season of Teen Wolf premieres June 23.
