In an usual move, MTV’s Teen Wolf is looking to pull an MTV’s Scream Season 3 and start the show again from scratch. That means no more Scott, Stiles, Lydia and the rest of them; just all new characters and an all new storyline.
According to THR, MTV is currently in early talks with Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis to transform the show into an anthology series which will bring in new characters and a new setting. Basically like Skins, but with werewolves.
If you’re thinking, ‘wait just one cherry-picking minute, what about all my faves?’ then you’re in luck; the current narrative (with the current characters) will be continued in podcast form after Season 6 ties up this summer.
Speaking to THR, MTV president Chris McCarthy said: “These characters and these stories have hit a peak. We are talking with Jeff about how do we actually keep that franchise alive. And the beauty of the evolution of media is you can see the series going on through a series of podcasts and then see a resurrection of a new class in a couple years.
“How do we keep this franchise alive in podcasts, in the spirit of Serial, and then how do we actually reboot an entire new class? Because the heart of MTV is around these timeless issues of young people and coming of age, but the timely piece will be the whole new cast, new set of issues and stories to explore through them. With Teen Wolf, we have such a beautiful gem. And when you have a creator like Jeff that is such an amazing partner and the fan base that is hungry for more, we’re crazy not to.”
Teen Wolf Season 5 stars Tyler Posey as Scott McCall, Dylan O’Brien as Stiles Stilinski, Holland Roden as Lydia Martin, Shelley Hennig as Malia Tate, Dylan Sprayberry as Liam Dunbar, Linden Ashby as Sheriff Noah Stilinski, Melissa Ponzio as Melissa McCall and JR Bourne as Chris Argent.
The last 10 episodes of Teen Wolf Season 6 are set to air later this year. Get all the latest fantasy news with every issue of SciFiNow.
