MTV is Rebooting “Teen Wolf” TV Series

The sixth and final season of MTV’s “Teen Wolf” will wrap up this summer, but that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of the show on the network. Like “Scream,” it’s getting a full-on reboot.

THR announced today that MTV is in early talks with creator and showrunner Jeff Davis to turn “Teen Wolf” into a potential anthology with a rebooted take featuring a largely new cast (some characters *could* return), as well as a new setting and new stories.

Davis and MTV also plan to continue the show’s current narrative with a podcast that will kick off shortly after Season 6 comes to a close.

These characters and these stories have hit a peak,” MTV president Chris McCarthy told the site. “We are talking with Jeff about how do we actually keep that franchise alive. And the beauty of the evolution of media is you can see the series going on through a series of podcasts and then see a resurrection of a new class in a couple years.”

He added, “We want to give it enough time to let the series finale marinate a year or so, and then when we find the right story and the right cast, look to resurrect it.”

    Anything else MTV feels like rebooting, 120 Min…TR…Jersey Shore?

    • Forca84

      Jersey Shore is filming a reunion actually.

        *flips table*

    Oh god, just… just don’t. The show is good as it is, let it finish.

  • Munchie

    Wow, MTV is a horribly run company.

    • Necro

      Really!

  • Can’t we let the series end before we start negotiating the reboot? Pretty soon, the reboot will actually come out before the original.

  • Josh Blitzenbrox Myers

    So is this reboot also going to star a bunch of rappers?

  • Vincent Kane

    Is this one not culturally diverse enough either?

  • This feels extremely unnecessary.

  • BreeBennett

    MTV needs an intervention.

  • DJV1985

    And because of the whole white people are over representative in media and with Scream being an almost all black cast MTV are having the reboot retitled as well “Teen Wolfette” and will be mostly Asian women.

    (sarcasm)

    Gonna pass… I watched the show up to the Dread Doctors and got fed up with how awful the show became. One of the Twins and Jackson are coming back for Fan service.

      oh my fucking god the Dread Doctors gig was atrocious! LOL. they looked like “Hot Topic” clothing rejects! so incredibly cringe-inducing. LOL.

    seasons 1 & 2 of this show are excellent but from seasons 3-5 were pretty average to outright terrible. that being said, having watched the new trailers for the final 10 season 6 episodes i’m actually excited for them. VERY much to my surprise this season 6B actually looks really good. very happy Derek & Jackson are returning!

    regarding the reboot, GET RID OF JEFF DAVIS!! he is what ruined this formerly good show! his attempt at his LET THE RIGHT ONE IN tv show was scrapped for a reason!! Jeff Davis sucks IMO.

    • Alexz

      I held on through season 4B. 1 & 2 we’re good cheesy fun.

    …marinate? Marinate.

  • Travis_Bickle

    They’re rebooting there own show? Makes sense….oh wait….

  • Dan

    The 1st season was good, but this show went off the rails quicker than any show, ever…….

  • Tryst V. Umbra

    Teen Wolf: Another Wolfteen. Good to know that MTV has officially reached the “well if we just reboot shows a few years after it ends, there will be new people to grow up with and buy it!” point

  • Buk Lau

    Bring back Fear.

  • DirkShadows

    On another forum, someone suggested that MTV do an updated grittier version of “Teen Witch” set in the same universe as “Teen Wolf”, maybe even in Beacon Hills, which I think is a great idea if they get in before Sabrina joins “Riverdale”.

  • ChrisDACase95

    Well what’s important is that they’re finishing their current storylines, tying loose ends and not pulling a new story out of their ass *insert obligatory Scream reference here*
