Now this is a serious case of teenage angst.
A new Teen Wolf film–based on the fan-favorite 1985 movie starring Michael J. Fox and the popular MTV series–has fleshed out its cast with several of the original small-screen stars, according to a report on collider.com. The movie will air on Paramount+ on an unannounced date.
The ensemble will include Tyler Posey as Scott McCall, Melissa Ponzio as Melissa McCall, Shelley Hennig as Malia Tate, Orny Adams as Coach Bobby Finstock, Linden Ashby as Sheriff Noah Stilinski, J.R. Bourne as Chris Argent, Seth Gilliam as Dr. Alan Deaton, Colton Haynes as Jackson Whittemore, Dylan Sprayberry as Liam Dunbar and Ryan Kelley as Deputy Jordan Parrish.
The new film–from writer/producer Jeff Davis–will be set in Beacon Hills, where “a terrifying evil has emerged,” according to the official synopsis. “The wolves are howling once again–calling for the return of banshees, were-coyotes, hellhounds, kitsunes and every other shapeshifter in the night.”
Only a werewolf like Scott McCall, “no longer a teenager, yet still an alpha, can gather both new allies and reunite trusted friends to fight back against what could be the most powerful and deadliest enemy they’ve ever faced.”
In addition, Davis also will write another supernatural teen thriller series for Paramount+–Wolf Pack–based on the book series by Edo Van Belkom. This series will follow a group of teenagers as they fight off “a terrifying evil that reveals itself under the ticking time bomb of a California wildfire.”
The original MTV Teen Wolf series–adapted by Davis from the feature film–ran from 2011-2017, earning three Saturn Awards for Best Youth-Oriented Television Series. The show followed a young werewolf who defends his California town from supernatural creatures.
