News arrived today from San Diego Comic-Con that Teen Wolf is to end with it’s 6th season. The final run, which premiere’s in November in the US, will feature 20 episodes, meaning it will come to a close on it’s 100th episode at some point in 2017.
Teen Wolf was (very) loosely based on the 1985 film of the same name, but took a far darker tone than it’s source material. Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) is a student in Beacon Hills High School, who is bitten by a werewolf. This leads him to not only have to deal with the stresses of being a teenager, but also the strain of coming to terms with his new wolfy reality!
“Teen Wolf has been an extraordinary journey, one that captured the hearts and imaginations of fans more than we could’ve ever imagined,” commented showrunner and exec 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 endured a pretty messy run in the UK having been initially bought by Sky Living, but dropped after 2 seasons. Season 3 appeared only available to buy on Amazon & iTunes streaming services, with seasons 4 & 5 only available on disc in the UK. The channel 5star has recently started airing season 1 & 2 again, however it’s not clear if the other seasons will follow on from that.
The show has been a great platform for a number of the actors involved. Tyler Hoechlin has recently been cast as Superman on Supergirl, Dylan O’Brien has been starring in the Maze Runner movies, and Colton Haynes, of course, played Arsenal/Roy Harper on Arrow.
Teen Wolf returns for it’s 6th season in November across in the US, but it’s anyones guess when we’ll get to see it legitimately here in the UK.
