“Tyler Hoechlin decided he wanted more time to pursue movies,” executive producer Jeff Davis tells 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.”
So does this mean a “And Special Guest Star” appearance somewhere during Season Five? More importantly, how will Stiles cope?
