The leading man of Hallmark Channel’s hit series, Chesapeake Shores will be exiting the show in its upcoming fifth season.

Passions alumi, Jesse Metcalfe (Ex-Miquel) who has starred in the multi-generational drama, has decided to leave the show in his signature role as singer-songwriter, Trace Riley.

In a statement on Metcalfe’s departure, a Hallmark Channel shared with Deadline, “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. 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 installment of which premieres on May 16. In addition, we are currently in development on another movie in the series.”

According to the report, Metcalfe is currently in Canada filming his final scenes. The fifth season has a ten episode order.

So sad to hear Jesse is out at Chesapeake Shores? How should his character Trace exit the series? Comment below.

I am a big fan of Jesse and am disappointed in hearing this. I wish him well.

Disappointed in an understatement; to me, he was the true star of the series. My one hope is that, maybe in his exit, it *might* ignite some kind of discussion to reboot Dallas again, because the premature ending on TNT was uncalled for. Maybe Paramount+ could develop it?

Would love to see DALLAS return with Jesse and the rest of the gang.

Love the idea but there is no one left but this new generation. As good as Jesse was playing J.R, JR. I don’t think he’d fill JR’s shoes. Bobby is off playing house with Linda Purl, they make a nice couple, so who else is there? I just don’t see it being Dallas anymore.
