MTV today announced to a packed room of over four thousand, die-hard fans at San Diego Comic-Con that its beloved drama horror series Teen Wolf will conclude with its sixth and final season premiering in November. The series - which spawned a legion of fans, pioneered social TV, and made international stars of Tyler Posey and Dylan O'Brien - will draw to a close with a 20-episode season, ending with its 100th episode in 2017. Here's what showrunner and executive producer Jeff Davis had to say in a statement.
"Teen Wolf has been an extraordinary journey, one that captured the hearts and imaginations of fans more than we could've ever imagined. We're eternally grateful for the support we've received over these past six years and we're excited to take our brave fans on one last, thrilling adventure."
Tyler Posey, Holland Roden, Dylan Sprayberry, Cody Christian and Khylin Rhambo, along with executive producer Jeff Davis bid fans a teary-eyed thank you and previewed the final season with an epic -and unsettling- Season 6 trailer. Today marked the seventh consecutive trip to "The Con" for Teen Wolf and, as always, the series' panel had surprises in store. Cast members Ian Bohen ("Peter Hale") and J.R. Bourne ("Chris Argent") jolted the cast and fans by thundering onstage dressed as Beacon Hills' newest villains: The Ghost Riders.
MTV also gave Comic-Con fans in the room an exclusive sneak peek at its forthcoming scripted series Sweet/Vicious, a provocative scripted dramedy about sexual assault, consent and revenge on college campuses that will premiere alongside Teen Wolf in November 2016. Starring Taylor Dearden ("Ophelia") and Eliza Bennett ("Jules"), Sweet/Vicious is an offbeat superhero story for the millennial generation. Hell-bent on bringing justice to those who get away with abuse on their college campus, Jules and Ophelia take on double lives as wannabe vigilantes. Filled with clumsy attempts and missteps, the odd-couple pair of antiheroes must balance their new secret life with best friends, parents, love interests, and the metaphorical monsters under their beds. At the core of the f*cked up, hilarious, heartbreaking world of Jules and Ophelia is the heart of the show: two girls, who never felt like they belonged, finding a home in each other... and trying to kick a lot of ass.
MTV's booth (Booth Number 3729) is offering the ultimate fan experience to badgeholders: an interactive Teen Wolf Virtual Reality activation. Fans will have the opportunity to interact with their beloved characters in a live-action scene and, using groundbreaking gaze-activated technology, influence the outcome of the narrative. The two Teen Wolf activations, sponsored by AT&T, will be available at the MTV Booth during Comic-Con days Thursday through Saturday from 9:30AM PT to 7:00PM PT, and on Sunday until 5:00PM PT.
Teen Wolf VR Experience: The Tunnels lets the fan be the focal point in this gaze-activated VR experience. Scott (Tyler Posey) and Lydia (Holland Roden) find the fan in the tunnels (the setting for Season 6) just in time to warn about an approaching Ghost Rider. The fan's actions affect how quickly the Ghost Rider makes the viewer disappear. This is the first up-close demonstration of the Season 6 villain.
The Teen Wolf VR Experience: The Library is a gaze-activated VR experience, the fan is in the iconic Beacon Hills library with Malia (Shelley Hennig), Liam (Dylan Sprayberry), and Mason (Khylin Rhambo). As the characters interact with the viewer, he/she quickly realizes that something is wrong. The direction the fan looks will determine how/where items in the library begin to vanish... dropping a hint to the mystery of Teen Wolf Season 6. Teen Wolf stars will also be holding autograph signings at the MTV booth (Number 3729) throughout the con. J.R. Bourne and Ian Bohen will be signing autographs for the fans on Friday between 4:15 and 5:15PM. On Saturday, Tyler Posey, Holland Roden and Jeff Davis will be signing from 11:00-12:00 PM, with Dylan Sprayberry, Cody Christian, Khylin Rhambo signing from 1:00-2:00 PM.
