Scott McCall just lost another member of his pack. Arden Cho revealed on April 11 in a video that her character, Kira, will not be returning for season 6. Click to WATCH Arden’s goodbye!
Looks like Kira’s going to be spending more time with the Skinwalkers than we thought. Arden Cho, 30, made a shocking announcement in a video on April 11 — she’s leaving Teen Wolf. Arden has played Kira, Scott McCall’s love interest, since season three.
“I just want to say I love Kira Yukimura so much,” Arden says in the video. “I love the Yukimura family. I loved my experience on Teen Wolf. I love the cast and crew, it’s been an amazing three-and-a-half years. It’s gone by so fast, but unfortunately, it looks like we are wrapped up with Kira’s storyline and she won’t be coming back for season 6.”
Oh no! We’re going to miss Kira so much! She was so fierce, and we loved her with Scott. She was the perfect love interest for him after he lost his first love, Allison Argent.
Arden wasn’t too specific on why she was leaving, but she did say this: “I think sometimes in a show where there’s so many characters, there isn’t always room for everyone… I do wish we would’ve developed a little bit more of her powers and the Skinwalkers.”
We last saw Kira in the season 5 finale, when Scott left her with the Skinwalkers. While we’re saying goodbye to Kira for now, it may not be forever. “You never know with Teen Wolf,” she says in the video. “People might come back.”
Arden isn’t the first to leave Teen Wolf. Crystal Reed, who played Allison, was killed off in season 3. She made a surprising return in season 5 as Marie-Jeanne Valet. Tyler Hoechlin, Colton Haynes and Daniel Sharman have also left the show. Teen Wolf is currently filming season 6. HollywoodLife.com has reached out to MTV for comment.
