The Teen Wolf season 6 cast has been finally been revealed. After injuries and departures placed the show?s fate on the line, the return of several characters have led some to wonder how the plot will change.
Developed by Jeff Davis, the MTV series has a cult following ever since it premiered on the music channel in June 2011. It is loosely based on a 1985 movie of the same name and focuses on how a teenager named Scott McCall copes with life after being bitten by a werewolf.
Actor Tyler Posey plays the lead role in the supernatural teen drama. His character has a best friend named Stiles Stilinski, played by Dylan O Brien. However, Teen Wolf fans got worried about what will happen to the popular tandem after the latter got injured last June.
It was reported that Dylan O Brien sustained serious injuries while filming a vehicular stunt scene for upcoming movie Maze Runner 3: The Death Cure. He initially didn?t realize how severe his injuries were, until his publicist explained later on that the actor needed extra time to recover.
The accident not only put Maze Runner 3?s production on hold, but fans also wondered if Dylan O Brien will no longer be part of Teen Wolf season 6?s cast.
This issue was clarified just yesterday by Jeff Davis. According to Entertainment Weekly, the showrunner confirmed that Stiles will still be part of the series when it returns this fall.
Reps also released photos of Dylan O Brien in the first episode of Teen Wolf season 6, where he is seen wearing a hand brace.
As for Teen Wolf season 6?s plot, the injured actor?s role will reportedly even be ?more important than ever.? Jeff Davis added that a lot of this season?s mystery will revolve around him, including why exactly he is Scott?s best friend.
Aside from Dylan O Brien, another controversial cast member was Tyler Hoechlin. The 28-year-old California native will no longer return to play the role of Derek Hale as he is busy filming ?Fifty Shades Darker,? where he has been cast as the boyfriend of Anastasia Steel.
Previous reports regarding the Teen Wolf season 6 cast included the confirmed departures of Arden Cho and Meagan Tandy.
