If you’ve had enough of vampires, then you may want to check out MTV’s ‘Teen Wolf.’ The reinvention comes alive as a sexy thriller set against the drama of high school life with a forbidden, romantic love story at its core.
‘Teen Wolf,’ stars Tyler Posey (‘Maid in Manhattan,’ ‘Brothers and Sisters’), as the newly bitten werewolf, ‘Scott McCall.’ Dylan O’Brien is his best friend ‘Stiles,’ Crystal Reed is the mysterious new girl in town, ‘Allison,’ and Tyler Hoechlin (‘Road to Perdition,’ ‘7th Heaven’) is the older and possibly quite dangerous werewolf, ‘Derek Hale.’
Always an outsider and often unnoticed, Scott McCall yearns to be recognized in some small way that takes him out of his typical state of high school anonymity. When his best friend, Stiles, convinces him to go into the woods one night to join a police search for a dead body, Scott encounters a creature in the darkness. Narrowly escaping an attack with a vicious bite in his side, the next day brings strange surprises for Scott at school and his life will never be the same.
‘We are always up for creative challenges at MTV,’ said Liz Gateley, MTV senior vice president of series development. ‘We loved the conceit of the original film and knew the title had a great hook. The creative challenge was to take that title and reinvent it as a horror series for the MTV audience. It combines romance and high school to make ‘Teen Wolf’ the perfect thriller for MTV.’
Don’t miss it! It airs Monday nights at 10 pm EST on MTV.
