Tonight, it is time for The Fosters to return to Freeform, but they will be coming back without Jake T Austin the role of Jesus. This is going to be a shock to a lot of people. During the first half of the season, Jesus was not really around, and then they randomly threw in the new actor once, which confused people. Now, Starcasm is sharing the news about what happened with Jake T Austin and why he is not on the show anymore.
At this time, Jake T Austin is still not revealing why he left the show, but during a few interviews, he admitted that he doesn’t want to work as a teenager anymore. Jake is now 21, and he wants to do jobs that are more suited to his age. Jake T Austin also played on Wizards of Waverly Place before joining The Fosters. The rest of the cast is slowly starting to share their thoughts, though, and it is pretty obvious they are okay with Jake T Austin leaving the show and being replaced.

Maia Mitchell recently shared, “[He] wasn’t the right fit. He wasn’t interested in doing the show anymore, so he left.”
Maia also loves the new actor Noah in the role and went to Twitter, saying, “Noah is an angel & kills it in this role. Jesus is more engaging and textured than ever before. Bow down????????.”
It sounds like Noah Centineo is fitting in just right, but fans still need a chance to find out if he is going to win them over or not.
David Lambert, who plays Brandon, also shared that Jake T Austin left basically because everyone couldn’t see eye to eye. It sounds like things were not going well for him on the show and it was time for him to move on to something new.

This is all coming out after Hollywood Life revealed that Jake T Austin actually has a new girlfriend who is shocking everyone. He is dating a girl who was actually a fan, but this turned into way more for them and they are doing great. Danielle Ceasar was actually a fan who messaged him over and over, and the two are now in love. Jake shared in a recent interview.
“We’re young and having fun just getting to know each other. It doesn’t matter how you meet someone – on set, in a coffee shop, at school or in the business. Sometimes you connect with people at the right moment and you just click.”
This is actually giving girls everywhere hope that their celebrity crush could end up falling in love with them. Starting in 2009, Danielle tweeted to Jake T Austin every single day up until 2014. She never missed a day of sending him a message. Back in 2011, they did meet each other at a meet and greet, and now they are happy and in love. This doesn’t happen often, but Danielle got her dream to come true and is now dating Jake T Austin.
It doesn’t look like The Fosters will be leaving Jesus off the show this season. They will come back tonight with Noah playing the role instead of Jake T Austin. This will probably never even be mentioned, and viewers will just have to learn to embrace the new actor on their own.
