The 24-year-old actor tweeted to his fans after the announcement, “These past few yrs have been the best of my life. I’m sad that this chapter has ended, but excited for a new one to begin. Thx for the love.”
A source told the mag that, “It’s not that he didn’t want to return because he did. It’s that the heads of the show wanted to limit him to only appearing on half the season — 12 episodes, not 24.”
“If he did the 12 episodes, he would not be able to work on anything else during the 12 episodes he’s not on,” the source added.
We’ll miss you Colton!
WHAT DO YOU THINK of Colton leaving the show?
