MTV’s Teen Wolf will end with sixth season, hitting 100 episodes
It was a bitter-sweet San Diego Comic-Con for fans of Teen Wolf this year. Just as the cast and crew hit the stage and the cheers erupted, we learned that season 6 would be the final season of the show.
MTV announced to the four thousand die-hard fans in attendance that the drama horror series “Teen Wolf” will conclude with its sixth and final season, and many jaws hit the floor. The final season is set to premiere in November, but at least it will be a lengthy final season.
The series introduced a lot of new fans to Tyler Posey and Dylan O’Brien, and it will end with a 20-episode season, finalizing with its 100th episode in 2017.
Tyler Posey, Holland Roden, Dylan Sprayberry, Cody Christian and Khylin Rhambo, along with executive producer Jeff Davis bid fans a teary-eyed thank you and previewed the final season with an epic –and unsettling– Season 6 trailer, available to view here.
“‘Teen Wolf’ has been an extraordinary journey, one that captured the hearts and imaginations of fans more than we could’ve ever imagined,” said showrunner and executive producer Jeff Davis. “We’re eternally grateful for the support we’ve received over these past six years and we’re excited to take our brave fans on one last, thrilling adventure.”
Teen Wolf has been a long running staple of SDCC, the network has brought the series to the event for the last seven years. The popular show hosted a panel, and cast members Ian Bohen (“Peter Hale”) and J.R. Bourne (“Chris Argent”) hit the stage dressed as Beacon Hills’ newest villains: The Ghost Riders.
MTV also gave Comic-Con fans in the room an exclusive sneak peek at its forthcoming scripted series “Sweet/Vicious,” a provocative scripted dramedy about sexual assault, consent and revenge on college campuses that will premiere alongside “Teen Wolf” in November 2016.
Starring Taylor Dearden (“Ophelia”) and Eliza Bennett (“Jules”), “Sweet/Vicious” is an offbeat superhero story for the millennial generation. Hell-bent on bringing justice to those who get away with abuse on their college campus, Jules and Ophelia take on double lives as wannabe vigilantes. Filled with clumsy attempts and missteps, the odd-couple pair of antiheroes must balance their new secret life with best friends, parents, love interests, and the metaphorical monsters under their beds.
“Teen Wolf” was developed by Jeff Davis (creator, “Criminal Minds”) who also serves as executive producer. Additional executive producers include Russell Mulcahy (“Highlander,” “Resident Evil: Extinction”), Joe Genier, Marty Adelstein (“Prison Break”), René Echevarria (“Medium,” “Castle”), Tony DiSanto, Liz Gateley and Tim Andrew. The pilot was written by Jeff Davis and Jeph Loeb & Matthew Weisman and directed by Russell Mulcahy. The “Teen Wolf” series is based on a Screenplay by Jeph Loeb & Matthew Weisman. The series is a co-production with, and distributed by, MGM, in association with Lost Marbles Productions, Inc., Siesta Productions, Inc., First Cause, Inc. and DiGa.
