MTV’s popular Teen Wolf is coming back as a Paramount+ original film.
According to Variety, Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis has signed a new overall deal with MTV Entertainment Studios, which includes a Teen Wolf revival film to be released on ViacomCBS’ Paramount + streaming service.
This was announced four years to the day after Teen Wolf finished its initial run on MTV on September 24, 2017.
The series was based on a 1985 Michael J.Fox film by the same name. Teen Wolf premiered on MTV on June 5 2011 and ran for 100 episodes across 6 seasons concluding in 2017.
The series starred Tyler Posey, Dylan O’Brien, Crystal Reed, Holland Roden, Colton Haynes, Arden Cho, and Tyler Hoechlin (who went on to become Superman).
According to reports, the new Teen Wolf movie will see a “terrifying evil” emerge in the town of Beacon Hills. The synopsis of the movie goes like, “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 synopsis does talk about Scott McCall but we are not sure if Posey will be portraying him.
In addition to the Teen Wolf movie, Davis (creator of both MTV’s Teen Wolf and CBS’ Criminal Minds) will be serving a showrunner on a television adaptation of Edo Van Belkom’s Wolf Pack for Paramount+.
Wolf Pack’s would be based on “a teenage boy and girl’s lives are changed forever when a California wildfire awakens a terrifying supernatural creature and drives it to attack a highway traffic jam beneath the burning hills. Wounded in the chaos, the boy and girl are inexplicably drawn to each other and to two other teenagers who were adopted sixteen years earlier by a park ranger after another mysterious wildfire. As the full moon rises, all four teens come together to unravel the secret that connects them — the bite and blood of a werewolf.”
