There were lots of howling girls at the “Teen Wolf” Comic-Con panel, especially after the announcement that the much-loved series will be ending after Season 6. MTV revealed its trailer for the upcoming final season, which will premiere in November and go for another 20 episodes. Cast members Tyler Posey, Holland Roden, Dylan Sprayberry, Cody Christian, and Khylin Rhambo were all on hand to console fans, along with executive producer and showrunner Jeff Davis.
"I know we're sad about it, and it's bittersweet. But we’re so happy to be able to come to Comic-Con and share it with you guys,” Davis said.
Still, there is a lot to look forward to this season. Here’s five things we learned at the panel. — Susan Hornik
Relationships will be central to the final season.
"When we realized this might be the last season, we wanted to make sure we brought back these relationships," Jeff Davis said. "We definitely wanted Peter Hale (Ian Bohen) back to see the relationship between Peter and Malia (Shelley Hennig), and what other trouble Peter could get into. We also have some great scenes between Peter and Stiles. Ian and Dylan [O’Brien] have some great stuff this season. So, we’ll see.”
Prepare for a Nazi werewolf.
Jeff Davis talked about a new wolf villain on the series: "We have a Nazi Werewolf this season. We get to see how he was put into this big glass capsule. We’re history buffs at 'Teen Wolf.' So, we wanted to have a villain we haven’t seen before.”
Wild hunstmen could wreak havoc on Beacon Hills.
While this final season will center around saving Stiles (Dylan O’Brien, who could not attend Comic-Con this year), “It’s more of a Beacon Hills-wide mystery,” Davis said. The “Wild Hunt myth,” where a supernatural group of huntsmen passes through your town, will also come into play, he hinted. “If you’re unfortunate enough to glance up at them, they take you with them.”
Time travel will help solve a big mystery.
Castmate Holland Roden was excited about some time travel in the coming season: "We are partaking in a couple of different time periods this season. One in particular focuses on Irish folklore as a whole. Is that somehow related to solving the mystery of Season 6? That's the best I can give without giving too much away."
The big, bad wolf is more than a werewolf.
Attendees were happily surprised to see big, bad villain Chris Argent (JR Bourne) make a panel appearance. Davis noted that Argent is there "with Scott (Tyler Posey) with the support that's needed." He continued, "I love where that relationship, over the series, has gone. It’s what his daughter showed him, that he’s more than a werewolf. He’s a young man who carries equal morals to Argent.”
