Teen Wolf the supernatural teen drama is returning 5 years later with a movie! The series was originally developed by Jeff Davis for MTV and was a launching pad for the careers of the stars Tyler Posey (Alone) and Dylan O’Brien (Maze Runner). The show went on for 6 seasons and came to an end in September of 2017.
The announcement of the Teen Wolf movie has excited fans all over the world. Then, the film hit a snag with the announcement of the returning cast missing some key players. Without the likes of Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin (Superman and Lois), and Arden Cho (Chicago Med) they will need to add some new blood for the film.
