Teen Wolf, the popular MTV sitcom, is making a comeback. A resurrection film for Paramount+ is in the works, as part of an overall contract with series creator Jeff Davis that he inked with MTV Entertainment Studios.
Davis will script and executive produce the picture as part of the multi-year contract, and discussions with the original series’ cast members are already underway. The announcement is especially important because it comes four years after the original Teen Wolf finale aired on MTV.
Davis will also act as showrunner and produce a new series for Paramount+ based on Edo Van Belkom’s “Wolf Pack” books. Finally, after being set up at MTV, the previously reported Aeon-Flux live-action remake, on which Davis will also serve as showrunner and pilot director, has been transferred to Paramount+.
Teen Wolf aired on MTV for six seasons, totaling 100 episodes, from 2011 to 2017. Tyler Posey stars as Scott McCall, a teenage werewolf who defends his California town from supernatural monsters and other threats in the series, which is partly based on the 1985 film of the same name. While the film is mostly a humorous experience, the series adopted a more serious tone and went on to become a defining genre show on MTV, with a devoted audience and significant increases in internet viewing. Dylan O’Brien, Crystal Reed, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, and Arden Cho all feature in the series.
