MTV Entertainment Studios and Paramount+ are reviving hit MTV supernatural drama series Teen Wolf for an upcoming film, with original series creator Jeff Davis at the helm.
According to a Variety report, Davis (Criminal Minds) has signed a multi-year deal with the studio, allowing him to write and executive produce the film. Original cast members, such as Tyler Posey and Dylan O’Brien, are reportedly in talks to reprise their roles as Scott McCall and Stiles Stilinski, respectively.
Paramount+ posted a teaser on Twitter on Saturday, September 25 (Manila time), announcing that the new Teen Wolf movie is set for a 2022 release.
“A wolf howls to signal its location to the rest of the pack. We’ve heard your howls, and we’re howling back,” the streaming service wrote.
The film will be based in Beacon Hills, where a “full moon has risen” and a “terrifying evil has emerged.”
“The wolves are howling once again, calling for the return of Banshees, Werecoyotes, Hellhounds, Kitsunes, and every other shapeshifter in the night. But only a Werewolf like Scott McCall, no longer a teenager yet still an Alpha, can gather both new allies and reunite trusted friends to fight back against what could be the most powerful and deadliest enemy they’ve ever faced,” the plot synopsis reads.
The announcement comes four years after the Teen Wolf finale aired in September 2017. The teen drama debuted in June 2011 and ran for six seasons, with a total of 100 episodes.
Teen Wolf is about young werewolf Scott McCall (Posey), who protects a small town in California from supernatural foes and threats. Aside from O’Brien, it also stars Holland Roden, Shelley Hennig, and Dylan Sprayberry, who played Lydia Martin, Malia Tate, and Liam Dunbar, respectively. – Rappler.com
