MTV ushered in a new era of programming for the network when it debuted a new spin on the 80s movie ‘Teen Wolf’ five years ago. The new version was darker, sexier, and full of more twists and turns than the average maze. It’s consistently been one of the network’s most popular shows ever since, but all good things must come to an end. The cast of the series made their final New York Comic Con appearance together this weekend, and while there, MTV debuted the first eight minutes of the show’s final season.
Season six will be all about memories as the group faces the prospect of growing up, graduating from high school, and moving on from their supernatural magnet of a hometown, and the first eight minutes of the show gives a brief introduction to the idea. Check it out:
Not only does the series kick off its sixth season with Liam (Dylan Sprayberry) and Hayden (Victoria Moroles) on a date to remind the audience that there’s a whole new generation of wolves in Beacon Hills, but it also gives a hint at the themes to come. We see Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) struggling with the idea that Beacon Hills might not need the supernatural protection he and his friends have offered, while Scott (Tyler Posey) is more receptive to the idea of leaving the town to stand on its own two feet. Of course, that doesn’t get the chance to be explored just yet as we’re also given our first glimpse at the new villain.
A mysterious rider on horseback pulls the parents of a young boy from a car, a boy who can’t remember anything other than that his parents were taken. Even Scott’s attempt to view his memory leaves him confused about just what they might be going up against, other than a man on a horse, which gives everyone a great teaser for what’s to come. Fans surely have a lot to look forward to.
‘Teen Wolf’ returns to MTV on November 15 at 9PM to begin its final season.
