It’s Confirmed! Days of our Lives star Jonathon McClendon has been let go from the show. He hasn’t been seen on the set of the show for months now, and the actor just confirmed on his Twitter account on being let go. This is what he tweeted :-“Its true guys…#days has not contracted me for any episodes in multiple months. it was a real pleasure being on @nbcdays..” Wow, cant believe it’s actually happening. It’s for real this time, new fan favorite Jonathon McClendon who has been portaying the recurring role of Chase Jennings since 2015 has been written out of the show.
My theory is that after he gets better, the character of Chase Jennings will leave town, and after that he won’t be coming back. At least not anytime soon. But maybe, a year or few years from now, we will be seeing the character again. Jonathon has been great on the show. He won the hearts of the youngsters and the adults just like a blink of an eye. The viewers got to see the dark side of innocent Chase when he first started bullying Abe Carver’s son Theo Carver (played by Kyler Pettis) and after that by raping Hope Brady’s daughter Ciara Brady (played by Vivian Jovanni). The writers have finally decided that it was time for Chase to leave the show, which must have been hard, because it’s never easy letting fo someone from the show.
McClendon has a movie ‘Shot Caller’ in the post-production stage which is set to release soon. Hopefully he will land a role in another soap opera soon, just like many other former Days of our Lives costars have. Life goes on. With good looks like Jonathon McClendon it’s just a matter of time before he books another movie and TV show.
We will miss you, Jonathon.
