At SDCC this week during the official Teen Wolf panel, it was revealed that the series has been renewed for a sixth season. According to the panelists, the show does very well outside of the initial broadcast where it’s been hitting numbers closer to 8 million for some of the episodes. With more shows appearing through secondary sources quickly, such as On-Demand, Netflix and more, those are counting more and more towards renewal decisions since there are those that catch-up and join in with the broadcast itself.
“I thought this might be the last season,” said showrunner/creator Jeff Davis ahead of the fifth season debut. “But now there’s talk that it may not be. I have no idea what we’d do for 100 episodes, but we’re going to be up to 80, by the end of this [fifth] season. It’s crazy to think that a show called Teen Wolf will have hit 80 episodes and have stories to tell, but we still do. I see it as books in an ongoing series, and each season is a book. There were seven Harry Potter books, so who knows? But, it might also be time to move on. We’ll see.”
The series stars Tyler Posey, Dylan O’Brien, Holland Roden, Shelley Hennig, Arden Cho, and Dylan Sprayberry.
Plot concept: On the eve of Senior Year, Scott (series star Tyler Posey) and his friends find themselves facing the possibility of a future without each other, a next phase of their lives that might take them in different directions despite their best intentions. Little do they know that outside forces are already plotting to break the pack apart long before they ever see graduation. New villains that use a combination of science and the supernatural for a malevolent and mysterious purpose that will eventually pit Scott and his friends against their greatest enemy yet.
