Teen Wolf Season 6 will be the last season of the teen supernatural drama as showrunner Jeff Davis announced on Thursday at the San Diego Comic-Con.
Season 6 will be airing in 2017 with 20 episodes, with the 100th episode as the series finale. MTV unveiled the first trailer for Season 6 at the convention. Showrunner and executive producer, Davis, was joined by his cast, Tyler Posey, Dylan Sprayberry, Holland Roden, Cody Christian and Khylin Rhambo.
Davis did not reveal why they are ending the series with Season 6 but there are speculations that fan-favorite Dylan O?Brien might be the reason for the series? end. As recalled, O?Brien was severely injured during filming for Maze Runner 3 which led to delays in production for Teen Wolf and indefinite postponement of filming for the dystopian film.
On the other hand, Cinema Blend notes that perhaps the showrunners simply want to hit that big 100th episode and be able to make a perfect exit for the show which they will have full control over. That will be way better than letting the show stick around for a while until it gets cancelled.
Davis told the audience at their SDCC panel as reported by Variety, ?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.?
One of the big teasers shown in the trailer centers on O?Brien?s character, Stiles Stilinski, as he will be in grave danger in the final season. TV Guide reports that he will be the Wild Hunt?s victim and the McCall pack have to work together to prevent him from being erased from their memory.
The Wild Hunt will be the last season?s big baddie. He?s a demon horseback rider who doesn?t just take people but also erases them from people?s memory. Will Stiles be erased from Scott (Tyler Posey) and the others? memories?
It was already shown in the trailer that Sheriff Stilinski (Linden Ashby) was the first one to forget Stiles as he said, ?Now, why don’t you tell me your name??
Do you think Scott and the pack will be able to stop the Wild Hunt to save Stiles? How do you feel about the series ending?
