The only thing more surprising than Colton’s exit from the show are his co-star’s candid reactions.
Teen Wolf fans were shocked, saddened, etc. when news broke that Colton Haynes wouldn’t be returning for the MTV series’ upcoming third season — and it sounds like some of his cast mates were just as stunned. “We found out when everyone else did,” Crystal Reed told The Hollywood Reporter at Jersey Shore‘s “Restore the Shore” fundraiser in NYC. “I didn’t think that it was actually gonna happen … it was shocking for me.”
Tyler Posey, the show’s leading wolf, was apparently less surprised.
“There was talk about him doing this after the first season, so we were kind of used to it,” Tyler admitted. “But then it actually happened. It definitely sucks, it’s definitely weird. It’s gonna be weird to film it without him, but we have a good group of people on our show and we’ll survive.”
As for Colton’s off-camera relationship with the Teen Wolf cast, Dylan O’Brien doesn’t think it will be damaged by his departure.
“I feel like it won’t even feel like he’s gone,” Dylan said. “He’ll probably be still hanging out with us on set and still come to our parties when the show’s on. We’re still really good friends with him and we’re still gonna hang out with him … we wish him good luck, and we’re still gonna see him always.”
