Teen Wolf wrapped its fifth season on Tuesday, and star Tyler Posey is already looking forward to what will happen during Season Six of Teen Wolf.
One of the biggest changes that might be happening for Teen Wolf as it heads into Season Six is less about Tyler Posey on screen and more about Tyler Posey behind the scenes. As the main group of characters is set for graduation, International Business Times has executive producer Jeff Davis musing on who the focus will be on for upcoming episodes of Teen Wolf.
“There are big changes coming to Teen Wolf as we sort of hand the baton over to our 2.0 team of Liam [played by Dylan Sprayberry], Hayden [played by Victoria Moroles], Mason [played by Khylin Rhambo] and Corey [played byMichael Johnston]. You’ll have to see in Season Six.”
This group of Teen Wolf 2.0 characters will be fighting a Nazi werewolf as well as other supernatural foes. As for Tyler Posey, who plays pack leader Scott McCall, a smaller on-screen presence for him will mean more time to work as a producer. Tyler Posey became a producer on Teen Wolf during Season Five and is keen to increase his work load.
An opportunity may have arisen for this as Jeff Davis has announced plans to lessen his role on the show. The Teen Wolf showrunner announced the news at the end of February, saying that as soon as Season Five wraps up, he will begin to pass over some of his duties, potentially to Tyler Posey.
“I’ve been splitting my time between writers’ room and post production. Now that post [production] is almost done, I’ll be able to breathe a bit more.”
Jeff Davis will still be involved with Teen Wolf, but less so with writing scripts or managing day-to-day production details. With Jeff Davis limiting his work on Teen Wolf, other producers — including Tyler Posey — will take on more responsibility.

And this is good news for Tyler Posey, who may see being the new showrunner of Teen Wolf as his ultimate end goal. According to The Siver Times, Tyler Posey said recently that he has an ambitious plan for doing just that with Teen Wolf.
“This series is very important to me… I really want to be the one who leads the series to an end. I’ve heard Jeff talk a lot about leaving. Honestly, I would love that. I really love this show and this environment and this world and MTV, and I think it would be great. I think I would do a good job too — I really care about this show.”
Tyler Posey has yet to take to his Twitter account to voice his thoughts on the Season Five finale of Teen Wolf, but other cast mates have begun to share their thoughts. Dylan O’Brien — who plays character Stiles Stilinski — tweeted during the finale his thoughts on the episode.
“Teen wolf season finale on right now east coast, some say this is the greatest episode of television possibly ever……others……do not”
With Season Five of Teen Wolf now firmly wrapped up, Season Six is the next thing to ponder, especially for Tyler Posey. According to Christian Today, there are now reports that Season Six of Teen Wolf will definitely premiere in June 2016 and will consist of 20 episodes. Tyler Posey and Dylan O’Brien are both confirmed for the upcoming season.
In all likelihood, the season will be broken up again into two parts, as has happened the last few seasons of Teen Wolf. MTV seems to already be gearing up for Season Six of Teen Wolf, as it recently released a teaser trailer for the upcoming season.
