Dylan Sprouse Explains Why He and His Brother, Cole, Left Disney

Posted on May 29, 2013 by

After a combined six seasons of playing Zack and Cody Martin on the Disney Channel’s The Suite Life series, Dylan and Cole Sprouse left the famed company and headed off for college in real life. But according to this interview, the Sprouse twins wouldn’t have minded doing another season—if they had it their way.

Dylan recently explained what he and his brother would’ve done if they had another season of The Suite Life series and why they decided to leave Disney in a recent interview with Conversations With Nat on YouTube.

According to the video, the twins were hoping to have at least one more season of show where they had more creative control over the general direction. They wanted the characters to get off the boat, go back to living with their mom in The Tipton in Boston, and Mr. Tipton would go bankrupt. Cody and Zack would’ve also been training their own protegé before Cody went off to college and Zack worked at a used car dealership.

Sounds awesome right? Too bad Disney didn’t think it was flashy enough. The Mickey Mouse company wanted to set their story in Miami, have none other than Selena Gomez on the show and kept the twins’ name off the producers’ credits, according to Dylan.

“… Cole and I looked at each other and laughed in their face and walked out,” said Dylan. “And that was the last meeting we had with Disney.”

What a shame. Dylan sounded like he wanted to do another season of The Suite Life for all the right reasons. Too bad it wasn’t enough for Disney to handle.

    I believe it was really rude of Disney Channel they not only treated their most talented actors disrespectfully but they stole their whole idea to turn it into something completely ridiculous and not having any intentions at all to give Dylan and Cole Sprouse credits as producers…come on they’re totally turned their backs to them after all these years The Sprouse Twins worked for them so hard. I really lost all respect for the Disney Company after hearing Dylan Sprouse’s statements.
