We bet you didn’t see this one coming, we didn’t either.
Arden Cho, who plays Kira Yukimura on Teen Wolf, has announced she won’t be returning for season 6.
It seems there'll be a major cast change this upcoming season, which Arden touched on in a goodbye video on her YouTube channel.“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,” she admits.“Unfortunately it looks like we are wrapped up with Kira’s storyline and she won’t be coming back for season 6. Sorry there were some interviews where I said I was excited for season 6, because I think at the time, we were assuming that we were coming back.”The last time we saw Kira was in the season five finale, she'd helped her friends fight the beast of Gevaudan and was headed to the desert to seek help with her kitsune powers.
“I think sometimes in a show when there are so many characters, there isn’t always room for everyone and everyone’s storylines, so I guess that was it.”
In terms of what the future holds, who knows what might happen? Assuming her departure had nothing to do with bad blood with the producers, we wouldn’t be surprised if her character was written back into the storyline in the future!
“I do wish we could have developed a little more of her powers and the skin-walkers and there would have been more like an epic ending. But you never know with Teen Wolf, I mean people might come back, but it is what it is.”
We just aren’t ready to say goodbye forever to Kira, so we hope one day that she returns!
