Why did Ella Leyers leave Professor T?

Ella Leyers assumed the role of Inspector Annelies Donckers on the popular Belgian drama, Professor T, however, she did not return for the third season.

Ella Leyers was a supporting cast member on the popular Belgian television crime drama series, Professor T.

The show centred around an eccentric criminology professor at Antwerp University, Jasper Teerlinck with a sharp mind for solving crimes, who, as viewers soon learned, was an advisor to the police.

In the series, Ella assumed the role of Inspector Annelies Donckers, who was a firm favourite amongst viewers of the show. The show first aired in 2015, and the second season aired the following year in 2016.

However, there was a year break after the second season, with the third season having premiered in 2018 and without Ella’s character.

She was the only character who left before the series’ finale season. This led to much speculation about the reason behind her departure from the show.

Some have suggested that the break resulted in Ella Leyers getting other work opportunities, which meant she could not return to the series.

In September 2021, Leyers took on the role of a radio presenter at Studio Brussels.

Furthermore, in the autumn of 2022, she assumed the position of presenter on “De Ideale Wereld,” a Belgian satirical talk show that has been airing since 2013, replacing previous host Jan Jaap van der Wal.
