Tracy Spiridakos Reveals Reason For Leaving

Tracy Spiridakos revealed the real reason she left the show. It was on her own terms. 

“I decided at the end of my sixth season, which is when I had reached out to Gwen and to everyone at Wolf to let them know that I just wanted to do one more year, I wanted us to send out the character with one last season. It was a hard decision — very, very hard. I love everybody on the show — cast, crew, producers, writers, everybody. It’s such an incredible team. I was just curious what was out there for me and wanted to switch it up, and that was it,”

Her character, Hailey Upton, was seen leaving the show and going to the airport. She did not die and there was no true ending that would result in her not returning if she wanted to.
