Although the show has been over for a couple of years, Teen Wolf still has a fairly rabid fanbase. The show aired for six seasons on MTV and was loosely based on an 80s comedy movie of the same name starring Michael J. Fox. The show was a huge part of Dylan O'Brien and Tyler Posey's rise to prominence as actors, but there were plenty of other memorable characters in the show as well, including some that fans still have questions about.

What happened to Isaac on 'Teen Wolf'?

Although he was never a main member of the cast, Daniel Sharman's Isaac Lahey made a memorable impression on fans of Teen Wolf. Isaac was first introduced in the first episode of the show's second season and was the son of Coach Lahey, who abused him by locking him in confined spaces. Isaac developed claustrophobia, and after a fight with his father, he decided he wanted to become a werewolf.

Eventually, Isaac began a romantic attraction with Allison Argent, although the two of them didn't get to be together for long. Allison's death at the end of the show's third season sends Isaac into grief, which is when he ultimately leaves. He and Allison's father, Chris, leave Beacon Hills in order to find some emotional healing, and Isaac never returns. 

Although Isaac made an impact on the show, he was never a central character. Once he left, he was rarely addressed on the show. As is the case on many TV shows, the supporting cast is often much more in flux than the leads, which remain relatively consistent from season to season. Isaac's departure may have devastated some fans, but it was pretty standard business on a long-running TV series.

What has Daniel Sharman done since 'Teen Wolf'?

After leaving Teen Wolf, Daniel's first move was to a supporting role on The Originals, a show with a very similar vibe. Daniel played Kaleb Westphall on the show for 12 episodes from 2014-2015, and he's continued to work fairly regularly in the years since. He had a recurring role as Troy Otto on Fear the Walking Dead for 16 episodes and has worked on other, more recent TV shows as well.

Those TV shows include Medici, which was an Italian drama series in which he had one of the starring roles. He also played the Weeping Monk on Cursed, the Netflix series starring Katherine Langford. Although Isaac may still be one of his most well-known roles, Daniel hasn't struggled for work in the years since. Instead, he's managed to successfully jump from prominent role to prominent role on several major series. 

Daniel doesn't have much set for the future, but he may find that he works consistently, even if he never becomes a major star. His role as Isaac helped to launch his career, and in the years since, he's only proven more of what he's capable of. In the end, it was probably good for his career that Isaac was written out of Teen Wolf
