Teen Wolf: The Movie: Plot, Trailer, Cast
The excitement continues for “Teen Wolf” fans who felt the supernatural drama ended too soon. In September 2021, MTV first announced that the show’s original creator, Jeff Davis, would direct a revival of the “Teen Wolf” movie. Better news? It is set to air on Paramount+ this winter. It’s true: most pack members get back together, and soon.
At New York Comic Con on October 7, the film’s cast reunited with Davis to talk about the new film and what fans can expect. POPSUGAR was on hand for the event, where star Tyler Posey spoke about how the film presents a more grown-up Scott McCall. The character, he explained, struggles to live outside of Beacon Hills. “Scott McCall is no longer a teenage wolf,” he joked. In the new movie, Scott is 33 and, as Posey said, has been trying to “get the hero role back for a little while.” But it left him dealing with anxiety, loneliness and depression, which Posey says will bring the character even closer to the show’s now adult fans. He also said the movie is the first time viewers have seen Scott do “normal” things since the show’s pilot.
The cast also talked about the surprising return of Crystal Reed as Allison Argent, who technically died in the third season. Davis said, “I’ve always said if we were going to do a movie, we had to bring Crystal back.” He messaged her on Instagram to open a conversation about his comeback, and she agreed. Reed says she’s “humbled” by the support the character has received from fans and is “grateful” that fans have connected with her so much.
Holland Roden, who plays Lydia Martin, explained that when fans see Jackson (Colton Haynes) and Lydia reconnecting on screen, it was actually her and Haynes reuniting in real life as well. “So when you see Lydia and Scott on screen, I hope you get that feeling too.”
During the panel, the cast debuted an exclusive clip from the film, featuring Tyler Hoechlin as Derek Hale with his son, Eli (Vince Mattis). Derek urges his son to begin his transformation so he can heal an injury he sustained in a lacrosse game. But before her son can respond, they are attacked by Allison, brandishing her bow and arrows. Mattis joked that the show is called “teen Wolf,” and he’s the only teenager now. Watch the exciting new clip coming soon.
We’ve rounded up details about “Teen Wolf: The Movie,” including plot clues, returning cast members and more. And until the film’s release in January, you can still rewatch older episodes of the series on Paramount+.
