When Teen Wolf ended season 5, Scott left Kira in the desert to repay her debt to the Skinwalkers, but there was no reason for fans to believe Kira wouldn’t be back … until now.
Actress Arden Cho posted a video on YouTube to explain to her fans that she will not be returning to the show for season 6. “I love Kira Yukimura so much. I love the Yukimura family,” Cho says in the video. “I loved my experience on Teen Wolf. I love the cast and crew. It’s been an amazing almost 3-and-a-half years. But unfortunately it looks like we are wrapped up with Kira’s storyline and she won’t be coming back for season 6.”

As to why she’s leaving, Cho keeps things vague, but she does say, “I think sometimes in a show where there’s so many characters, there isn’t always room for everyone.” She then adds: “I do wish we would’ve developed a little bit more of her powers and the Skinwalkers.”
Although Cho expresses her wish that Kira had gotten a more “epic ending,” she admits this might not be the end for Kira. “You never know with Teen Wolf,” she says. “People might come back.”
