Colton Haynes Reveals Why He Left ‘Arrow’ Ahead of Season 8

With the release of his new memoir, Colton Haynes is finally opening up as to what led him to exit Arrow ahead of Season 8. His memoir, Miss Memory Lane, was released on May 31st. The 256-page book from Atria Books takes fans down memory lane as Haynes recalls his struggles with addiction, abuse, and his time on Teen Wolf and the CW’s Arrow.

The decision to leave was financially-based as the network refused to pay the actor what his fellow stars were being paid. Ironically enough, this is an issue Arden Cho experienced too when she received a lowball offer to return for the Paramount+ Teen Wolf movie.
