Would MTV consider the idea if Dylan O’Brien also stars in it?
It’s been a while since we’ve seen the pack fighting supernatural forces and protecting Beacon Hill against mysterious elements, but we sure do miss them! And we’re not the only ones to do so –Teen Wolf cast members, including teen wolf Tyler Posey himself, have expressed interest in bringing back the show.
- Teen Wolf revival: Who wants to do it?
- What could the story be about?
- The cast reunites
Loosely based on a 1985 film starring Michael J. Fox, Teen Wolf is about an ordinary teenager Scott McCall who gets bitten by a werewolf and finds himself transformed into one. Scott must now balance high school along with the supernatural world that has opened to him after his transformation.
Often helping Scott out in his adventures and forming his pack are Stiles Stilinski (played by Dylan O’Brien), Lydia Martin (Holland Roden) and Malia Tate (Shelley Hennig). Together, the team faces supernatural forces looming over Beacon Hill.
Teen Wolf Revival: Who is keen?
The show ran for six seasons before officially coming to an end in 2017. Recently, however, some of the cast members have been posting on social media about their desire for a reunion. And this includes Tyler Posey, who tweeted, “Hey @MTV i think it’s time to bring teen wolf back for new episodes.” Other cast members who seconded Posey’s interest were Colton Haynes and Cody Christian.
Here’s the thing: It’s not entirely impossible to have a Teen Wolf revival. The finale was fairly open-ended, allowing multiple possibilities and a sense that the fight would continue and the pack would have to be ready to protect. And since Posey has expressed his interest already, would MTV be sold to the idea if Dylan O’Brien was also convinced to join in?
O’Brien and Posey have always shared a wonderful friendship together, having been roommates, and sharing a good camaraderie offline as well. Their banter and interaction onscreen have been received well by fans. Bringing them back as a team together would certainly strengthen the case for a revival.
What could the revival be about?
At one point, there were plans to reboot the show and bring a new cast, but that didn’t come to fruition.
Creator Jeff Davis has confessed that he still gets asked about a Teen Wolf revival or a season 7, and although he says he can’t picture himself penning the story forwards, he does think that a revival or a reboot could be possible. We live in a reboot culture after all.
The cast reunites
As a matter of fact, MTV recently held a reunion of various members of the cast to commemorate the ninth anniversary of the premiere of Teen Wolf. They reflected on characters, iconic moments and memorable episodes. There was even a quiz to find out who remembered their characters better than others.
With all that nostalgia brimming in, surely the desire to reunite must have been kindled!
Meanwhile, let’s keep our fingers crossed!
