The dangling storylines from Season 4 have left fans eagerly anticipating a Season 5 ever since the credits came up on the finale on September 8, 2014. The excitement has been raging on Twitter since the teaser, dropped at the MTV Movie Awards on April 12. The trailer focuses on the major villains of the season, known simply as the Doctors. And according to show creator Jeff Davis, they are are, at least, partially human — not sure if that makes it better, or much, much worse for the Beacon Hill teens.
Entertainment Weekly sat down with Teen Wolf helmer Jeff Davis, who talked about the Season 4 finale and dished on some of the storylines audiences can look forward to this season.
- Malia will be hunting for her mother, the Desert Wolf. And because Braedon is a part of that mystery she’ll be back.
- The character of Deputy Jordan Parrish will be explored further.
- Someone new will roll into Beacon Hill in the form of Theo, a new lone wolf, played by Cody Christian of Pretty Little Liars fame. But it will become apparent that maybe he’s not so new after all and that he has secrets that could bring to light why the community attracts more than its fair share of the supernatural.
MTV posted this description for the upcoming season.
“On the eve of Senior Year, Scott and his friends find themselves facing the possibility of a future without each other, a next phase of their lives that might take them in different directions despite their best intentions. Little do they know that outside forces are already plotting to break the pack apart long before they ever see graduation. New villains that use a combination of science and the supernatural for a malevolent and mysterious purpose will eventually pit Scott and his friends against their greatest enemy yet.”
So not only do they have to figure out what school they’re going to go to, have a good enough grade point average to get into that school, and then deal with who they’re leaving behind, but now the supernatural elements in their little town are delving even deeper into the darkness than ever before.
In an interview with Hollywood Life, Tyler Posey also spilled some juicy tidbits about the new season.
“All hell breaks loose, because it’s Teen Wolf. [The characters] don’t know whether to focus on surviving and saving people, or to focus on getting into school at the same time because if they put too much [focus] on one thing, school’s not gonna happen or someone’s gonna die.”
When asked about the enigmatic quote from Dr. Alan Deaton saying “The rules have changed,” he tried to explain without giving too much away.
“There’s a new type of supernatural character on the show and they are made… not how you think they are made.”
There are other changes coming to Teen Wolf as Tyler Hoechlin, Derek Hale, on the show, will not be returning as a series regular. Fear not, though, as Inquisitr reported last month, his story isn’t over, which means the writers aren’t killing him off. He’ll likely be making an appearance here and there throughout the season.
Check out the teaser trailer below and tune in for the premiere of Teen Wolf on June 29 on MTV at 10 p.m.
