Though Teen Wolf is closing out a six-year run on MTV this summer with its final 10 episodes, the stories and mythos of Beacon Hills will live on within the franchise.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, MTV is already in early talks with the show's creator and showrunner Jeff Davis to turn Teen Wolf into an anthology series, looking at a reboot down the road with a fresh cast. The show's current storyline could also see continuation in podcasts after the series finale later this summer.
"These characters and these stories have hit a peak," said MTV president Chris McCarthy. "We are talking with Jeff about how do we actually keep that franchise alive. And the beauty of the evolution of media is you can see the series going on through a series of podcasts and then see a resurrection of a new class in a couple years."
Though the show has had its ups and downs with its fan base, having been accused of queer-baiting, a diehard core has persisted through the comings and goings of favorites like Crystal Reed and Tyler Hoechlin, while another sect still has thrived in the fan-fiction corner of the Internet.
"How do we keep this franchise alive in podcasts, in the spirit of Serial, and then how do we actually reboot an entire new class?" asked McCarthy. "Because the heart of MTV is around these timeless issues of young people and coming of age, but the timely piece will be the whole new cast, new set of issues and stories to explore through them." While Teen Wolf has admittedly been an overall success, this first iteration definitely presents the network and Davis with mistakes they can learn from.
