MTV’s Teen Wolf still has 10 episodes left before we say a final goodbye to Scott and his Pack and all things supernatural in Beacon Hills, but it looks like there are already plans to reboot the series. Yep. You read that right.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, MTV is in early talks with Teen Wolf creator and showrunner Jeff Davis to reboot the series in the near-future by turning it into a potential anthology series with a whole new cast (although there could be some returning characters) and location. But that’s not all.
Davis and MTV also plan to continue the current storyline in podcast form after the series wraps later this year. Yep, you read that one right, too. Here’s what MTV president Chris McCarthy said:
“These characters and these stories have hit a peak. 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.”
With McCarthy adding about the podcasts (which should kick off soon after the finale) and the plans for a possible reboot:
“How do we keep this franchise alive in podcasts, in the spirit of Serial, and then how do we actually reboot an entire new class? Because the heart of MTV is around these timeless issues of young people and coming of age, but the timely piece will be the whole new cast, new set of issues and stories to explore through them. With Teen Wolf, we have such a beautiful gem. And when you have a creator like Jeff that is such an amazing partner and the fan base that is hungry for more, we're crazy not to.”
So, when can we expect that reboot to hit us?
“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.”
There you have it. What do you guys about the Teen Wolf podcasts and a possible reboot? The series will return after a six-month-long hiatus for its final (not so final, after all) 10-episode run (aka Season 6B) on July 30,
