Jake T. Austin Reveals Why He Left 'The Fosters'

Jake T. Austin Reveals Why He Left 'The Fosters'

Jake T. Austin has finally broken his silence about his seemingly-abrupt departure from The Fosters back in 2015.

If you remember, the 22-year-old actor played Jesus in the first few seasons before he was replaced by Noah Centineo.

When a fan recently asked if he left the show because he didn’t want to play a teenager anymore, Jake cleared things up.

“Not true. I just wanted to do roles with more substantive content,” he tweeted.

Since then, Jake competed on Dancing With the Stars.

The Fosters returns on Tuesday, January 31 on Freeform.

The Fosters-Adams kids are going to go through a lot when Freeform’s The Fosters returns later this month.

EP Joanna Johnson previewed even more scoop on what the kids will endure in the upcoming episodes, which start airing on Tuesday, January 31st.

Here’s everything that’s going down:

Jude (Hayden Byerly): Because of his new relationship, “we’re going to get into some interesting issues about sex education for the LGBT community in schools.”

Callie (Maia Mitchell): Always involved in the cliffhangers, she’ll have “a lot of twists and turns” as she seeks justice for Kyle “so doggedly that she often faces severe consequences for it.”

Jesus (Noah Centineo): That head punch is more severe than anyone thought. He’ll be “struggling with further trauma to his brain.” Fans can expect “some interesting and surprising stories about what happens when people have…changes in personality, as well as other physical and mental symptoms.”

Mariana (Cierra Ramirez): On top of possibly dealing with Nick’s crazy and scary moments, Mariana “gets into a little bit of therapy.”

Brandon (David Lambert): The eldest of the Foster-Adams kids, Brandon moves back home as he pursues “redemption.”

'The Fosters' Scoop: Nick Returns With More 'Shocking & Haunting' Moments in Upcoming Season

With The Fosters returning in just 20 days time, it’s time for JJJ to seek out all the spoilers so we’re prepared for even more shocking moments in the upcoming season.

One big one that we found — Nick (Louis Hunter) isn’t done with his creepy and scary storyline.

Via TVGuide, according to EP Bradley Bredeweg, Nick is still causing trouble and scaring the crap out of us all.

“Nick will have at least one ‘shocking, surprising and haunting’ moment this season,” the site writes.

Will that be even more shocking than him bringing a gun to school? Or, more haunting than seeing him attempt to take his own life in Mariana’s bedroom?

Whatever the moment is, we’re here for it…and if you missed it, The Fosters will be coming back for fifth season.

Be sure to tune in when the show returns on Tuesday, January 31st on Freeform.

Meanwhile, Young & Hungry and Baby Daddy just got premiere dates too.

The former will premiere its fifth season on Monday, March 13 @ 8PM.

The season six premiere of Baby Daddy will air on Monday, March 13 @ 8:30PM.

The premiere picks up three months after the finale, and Ben (Jean-Luc Bilodeau) is still enthusiastically searching for the mysterious Elle.

Danny (Derek Theler) and Riley (Chelsea Kane) are hunting for a good doctor to help with the pregnancy, and Bonnie (Melissa Peterman) desperately wants to be involved.

Tucker (Tahj Mowry) is back from Los Angeles, but refuses to tell anyone what happened while he was there.

“The network just called us. Gave us our official date in January. Press release coming very soon. #ChangeIsGood #TheFosters,” he wrote on Twitter. Can’t wait for this!

Earlier in the week, Sherri Saum also shared a funny pic from the set with Maia.

“someone made raisin toast on set the aroma is divine and I don’t understand how @MaiaMitchell can just sit there like nothing happened,” she wrote.

Maia replied, “Raisin toast is my least favorite of the toasts so that really would explain this picture tbh.”

'The Fosters' Summer Finale Spoilers: What Happened to Jesus?

'The Fosters' Summer Finale Spoilers: What Happened to Jesus?

SPOILER ALERT! DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!

We still can’t believe everything that went down in last night’s summer finale of The Fosters!

Through it all, the person we’re most concerned about is Jesus (Noah Centineo), who may or may not be alive after a traumatic hit to the head.

“It is something we talked about. When Jake [T. Austin] left the show, that was a possibility,” executive producer Peter Paige told TVLine.com about possibly killing off the character. “We talked about whether we should kill Jesus. But the truth is I don’t know if any of us can bear to watch that show. The show is hard and challenging and sad, but there’s also a lot of joy and happiness and humor woven through it.”

He continued, “When you get to something that heavy, it really can overwhelm everything else. I don’t know how, for 10 full episodes, you just watch — particularly our mothers — grieving something that awful.”

WHAT DID YOU THINK of The Fosters finale?
