Nothing is official yet but Dylan O'Brien is very open to the idea of a Teen Wolf reunion show. The actor even expects that something along those lines will happen at some point, it's merely a matter of time. Whether or not MTV is interested in the idea is another question entirely but this should be good news for those who loved the series, which went off the air a few years back after an impressive run.
Dylan O'Brien is currently promoting his new movie Love and Monsters, which is out this weekend. During a recent interview, the subject of a Teen Wolf reunion came up. Granted, the cast recently gathered together for a virtual, unscripted reunion back in June. As for something more substantial? O'Brien is ready and waiting. Here's what he had to say about it.
"I would jump at the chance to do any kind of thing. We'll come back together for something at some point."
Teen Wolf debuted on MTV in 2011. The series is loosely based on the 80s classic of the same name. However, it puts a serious, YA spin on what was more of a comedic movie in its original form. The series ran for six seasons, with the finale airing in 2017. It aired a total of 100 episodes, which is not something all that many shows can claim. It has also maintained a following in the years since it went off the air. Dylan O'Brien became a breakout star, playing the character of Stiles Stilinksi on the series. He went on to be the face of The Maze Runner franchise. O'Brien, during the cast reunion over the summer, revealed that he kept Stiles' Jeep. So it would be ready and waiting, should MTV come calling.
The series centered on Scott McCall, a high school teen who was trying to break free from his relative anonymity. Scott ends up getting his wish, albeit in a complicated and unpredictable way. Walking in the woods one night he is bitten by a creature, which alters the course of his life forever. He becomes part human, part werewolf. Scott ends up locked in a struggle to control his wolflike urges. The cast also includes Orny Adams, Linden Ashby, Ian Bohen, Charlie Carver, Max Carver, Arden Cho, Cody Christian, Shelley Hennig, Melissa Ponzio, Tyler Posey, Khylin Rhambo, Holland Roden and Dylan Sprayberry.
Revivals of popular shows have become increasingly common. Networks and streaming services are doing anything they can to get an edge over the competition. Familiarity can help with that. Showtime, for example, just announced that Dexter is coming back for a limited series. There is no reason, in theory, that MTV couldn't do the same for Teen Wolf, even if it was just as a one-off special. Perhaps as a TV movie or something along those lines. At the very least, Dylan O'Brien is game for it. This news comes to us via Variety.
