The rumor mill continues to churn upon reports that Teen Wolf actor Colton Haynes, who plays Jackson on the MTV drama, is exiting the show after contract negotiations fell apart.

For its part, the network denies all reports, telling EW, that there is “absolutely no truth that Colton is being pushed out or that he, or any cast member, is being replaced. We love Colton and look forward to his returning with the entire cast for season 3 of Teen Wolf.”

Adding fuel to the fire is Haynes himself, who tweeted a suspiciously-timed, out-of-context statement. “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,” he wrote.

In the season finale of Teen Wolf, Haynes’ character, Jackson, turned into a werewolf after spending most of the season as the show’s big baddie (a Kanima), and settled into a good place with his love interest on the show, Lydia.

Haynes’ rep did not immediately return EW’s request for comment.

So let’s hear it, Teen Wolf fans. Who’s outraged? Who’s hopeful? And who’s indifferent?
