Is Jesse Metcalfe leaving Chesapeake Shores?

Unfortunately, there is some bad news for Jesse Metcalfe fans out there.

The American actor will be leaving Chesapeake Shores ahead of its season five debut.

Metcalfe, who plays Trace Riley in the series, has been part of the show’s main cast since it began in 2016.

Sadly, after more than four years, Metcalfe is saying goodbye to Chesapeake Shores.

A Hallmark Channel Representative said in a statement “A new season of Hallmark Channel’s highly popular scripted series Chesapeake Shores is returning this summer. Jesse Metcalfe, who plays Trace Riley, has decided to leave the show.”

There is some good news for fans of Metcalfe as he will continue to be a familiar face on the Hallmark Channel.

The statement continued: “His character’s storyline will wrap up early in season five.

“Jesse is a valued member of the Crown Media family; we look forward to continuing to work with him on projects, including original movies on Hallmark Channel, as well as his Hallmark Movies & Mysteries movie series, Martha’s Vineyard Mysteries, the next instalment of which premieres on May 16.

“In addition, we are currently in development on another movie in the series.”

 

Metcalfe took to Instagram to address the news by reposting a Yahoo! article announcing his exit.

He captioned the post on his Instagram stories: “Well I guess the cats out the bag! It’s with a heavy heart that me and Trace will be saying goodbye to Chesapeake Shors.

“I’m sorry to all the #chessies #Trabby & Trace Riley fans out there, you guys have been absolutely AMAZING!

And what an incredible journey the last 5 years have been.”

According to sources, Metcalfe is currently on location in Canada filming his last scenes as Trace Riley, reports Deadline.

Metcalfe’s departure from the show will come as a huge shock to fans, considering the series focuses mainly on his character’s relationship with Abby O’Brien (Megan Ory).

On the season four finale, Abby and Trace go back together after spending time apart and dating other people, so his exit will come as a devasting blow to fans of the couple.

Fans are hoping his exit will not mean the end of Abby and Trace for good but unfortunately, fans will have to wait until summer 2021 to find out. 

 

Why exactly Metcalfe is leaving Chesapeake Shores remains unknown. Express.co.uk will update this article when more information is available.

In the meantime, fans have been sharing their sadness online about Metcalfe’s departure.

One fan tweeted: “How about my Trace & Abby endgame? @jessemetcalfe We will miss you on #ChesapeakeShores!!!”

A second fan said: “Wow. I guess Trace and Abby were never meant to be.”

A third fan added: ” Is this the end of Trabby? Maybe the hot dad she met last season is still available.”
