Sad news for Teen Wolf fans! Tyler Hoechlin, who plays Derek on the show, has left the series to focus on other movie projects. But even though he won't be in much of season five, the show's creator Jeff Davis says it's not the last you'll see of him!
“Tyler Hoechlin decided he wanted more time to pursue movies," Jeff explained to Buzzfeed. "We talked and creatively agreed that maybe this was a good season to refocus on the teens of Teen Wolf, and while he won’t be a series regular anymore, I can say that you probably won’t have seen the last of Derek Hale. We love him and miss him.”
How sad! The show has been on for four years already and fans love Tyler's character – it's going to be tough not to see him on screen anymore. We are excited, however, to see Tyler's career shift focus.
"He said he felt like he was at a point in his career where he wanted to try new things, things that scare him, but wasn’t quite ready to let go of the family he created on Teen Wolf," Jeff further explained to MTV.
