Start baying at the moon–Teen Wolf is back.
The popular MTV series is being reimagined as a movie by creator Jeff Davis as part of a deal he inked with MTV Entertainment Studios, according to JoBlo.com. The film–which will air on Paramount+ next year on a date yet to be determined–is teased by the short clip on this page.
Davis–who will write the screenplay and act as the film’s executive producer–reportedly is already in talks with the TV show’s original cast to reprise their roles.
The new film, as explained, witnesses a “terrifying evil in the town of Beacon Hills. The wolves are howling once again–calling for the return of Banshees, Werecoyotes, Hellhounds, Kitsunes and every other type of shapeshifter.”
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 related news, Davis also is adapting the Wolf Pack novels by Edo Van Belkom into an all-new Paramount+ series for 2022.
The MTV Teen Wolf series–adapted by Davis from the 1985 film of the same name–ran from 2011-2017, earning three Saturn Awards for Best Youth-Oriented Television Series. The show–starring Tyler Posey, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden and Shelley Hennig–follows a young werewolf who defends his California town from supernatural creatures.
