SPOILER WARNING! In the wake of last night’s fifth season finale, Teen Wolf TV series creator, Jeff Davis, promises a ghostly sixth season. MTV renewed Teen Wolf for a sixth season in July 2015, so fans don’t have to worry the show will be cancelled, before Davis can make good on his word.
Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) and his pack are finally free of the Beast of Gevaudan. Mason (Khylin Rhambo) and Lydia (Holland Roden) are safe. A Nazi zombie or werewolf* or something is on the loose now, though. What is coming up in Teen Wolf, season six?
Teen Wolf season six spoilers, excerpted from TV Guide:
What can you tell us about the Nazi zombie that breaks loose at the very end?
Jeff Davis: He will be lurking about Season 6 and causing a lot of trouble. It may actually allow us to explore another episode in WWII. We had a lot of fun doing the fox and the wolf with the Japanese internment camp episode so we may revisit that.
Will he be the main big bad for Season 6 or will there be other threats to worry about?
Davis: There will be another threat that is worrisome. That has to do with the different mythology that we’re exploring for Season 6, which is a pretty big one for us and technically very difficult for us.
Will there be a time jump or will we be staying in the pack’s senior year?
Davis: It’ll be three months. It’ll be the second semester of senior year. I’m not a fan of graduation scenes in TV, but they are barreling towards graduation. It’s going to cause a lot of anxiety for our main characters.[…]
If next season were to be the last for Teen Wolf, what would need to happen for this series to feel complete for you?
Davis: I don’t know! I’ve always kind of thought that the series would end with a kind of “the adventure continues” type of ending. One of the things I love about TV is that they tell these ongoing stories. We’ll have to wait and see.
What will be Scott’s major battle next season?
Davis: Season 6 will bring in a new mythology and a very different problem. We’re big fans of genre in the writer’s room. With Season 5b we said, “This is going to be a monster movie.” With Season 6 we have a very clear idea that it’s going to be a ghost story.
*In his interview with TVLINE, Davis confirmed the Nazi figure is a Nazi werewolf:
TVLINE | Am I crazy for hoping that whatever crawled out of the machine at the end will be played by Crystal Reed?[Laughs] That was the Nazi werewolf! I can absolutely confirm that the soldier has left the machine and will be a part of Season 6, a threat. It was something we were planning for a while, and we weren’t sure if we were going to use that final shot, but once we started shooting Season 6, we figured we might as well use it.
Last summer, MTV renewed the Teen Wolf TV show for its sixth season, during San Diego Comic-Con. Do you expect Teen Wolf to be renewed for a seventh season in the same way? How long do you think the series should run? Let us know, below.
