Where did we leave off?
Five years after howling for the last time in the final episode, the group of teenagers and adults from Beacon Hills are making their grand return to the big screen with a full length-film. Teen Wolf: The Movie is slated to release later this year on Paramount’s newest streaming site, Paramount+.
MTV’s supernatural teen drama originally aired from 2011 to 2017, spanning 100 episodes across six seasons. In September 2021, Paramount+ greenlit a reunion film with the original screenwriter and executive producer Jeff Davis set to return.
Last time the pack was on TV, Scott was warmly inviting a lone wolf into his pack, serving as a tease into the future of the series. This came after Scott and the gang thwarted the efforts of another group of supernatural hunters aiming to kill every mystical being residing in Beacon Hills.
The blockbuster film will follow Scott, now an adult alpha, attempting to gather allies as a malevolent force looms nearby. The official synopsis reads: “A full moon rises in Beacon Hills, and with it, a terrifying evil has emerged.”
Who is returning? And who isn’t?
Paramount+ confirmed in February that Tyler Posey would reprise his role as Scott McCall. Posey will be accompanied by his co-stars Tyler Hoechlin (Derek Hale), Holland Roden (Lydia Martin), Shelley Hennig (Malia Tate), Orny Adams (Coach Bobby Finstock), Linden Ashby (Sheriff Noah Stilinski), and JR Bourne (Chris Argent).
Also supporting the main cast are Ian Bohen (Peter Hale), Colton Haynes (Jackson Whittemore), Ryan Kelley (Deputy Jordan Parrish), Melissa Ponzio (Melissa McCall), Seth Gilliam (Alan Deaton), and Dylan Sprayberry (Liam Dunbar).
Crystal Reed will also be returning to reprise her original role as Allison Argent, Scott’s original love interest. Although Reed’s character died at the hands of the Oni in season 3B, she has returned to life. However, details about her return and alliance with a particular side are unclear for the time being.
Dylan O’Brien (Stiles Stilinski) and Arden Cho (Kira Yukimura) are not returning to the project.
A glimpse into the future of Teen Wolf’s movie!
While the movie was officially announced in September 2021, only a broad time frame of “2022” was given. A brief trailer was released in July 2022, revealing familiar faces and locations. A menacing voice cries, “Set me free, and we’ll play a new game.”
The trailer is quick to throw one last gut punch as Scott struggles to tell Allison’s father of her return. “Allison! She’s alive, and she’s back!” Surprising? Probably not. No one here is ever really dead. After all, it IS Beacon Hills! So how or what do you think brought our beloved Allison back from the dead? And is she back as a friend or foe?
