MTV today announced to a packed room of over four thousand, die-hard fans at San Diego Comic-Con that its beloved drama horror series Teen Wolf will conclude with its sixth and final season premiering in November. The series – which spawned a legion of fans, pioneered social TV, and made international stars of Tyler Posey and Dylan O’Brien – will draw to a close with a 20-episode season, ending with its 100th episode in 2017.
Tyler Posey, Holland Roden, Dylan Sprayberry, Cody Christian and Khylin Rhambo, along with executive producer Jeff Davis bid fans a teary-eyed thank you and previewed the final season with an epic -and unsettling- Season 6 trailer, available to view below.
“‘Teen Wolf’ has been an extraordinary journey, one that captured the hearts and imaginations of fans more than we could’ve ever imagined,” said showrunner and executive producer Jeff Davis. “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.”
Today marked the seventh consecutive trip to “The Con” for Teen Wolf and, as always, the series’ panel had surprises in store. Cast members Ian Bohen (“Peter Hale”) and J.R. Bourne (“Chris Argent”) jolted the cast and fans by thundering onstage dressed as Beacon Hills’ newest villains: The Ghost Riders.
