Teen Wolf: The Movie is the long awaited continuation of the story of “True Alpha” werewolf, Scott McCall, and his “pack” of friends and loved ones.
Beginning in 2011, with the very first episode of MTV’s Teen Wolf, and running for 6 seasons. The series became, and indeed remains, one of MTV’s most beloved properties, with several of its young cast members, chief among them Dylan O’ Brien (Teen Wolf, The Maze Runner, American Assassin), becoming Hollywood stars after appearing in the series.
As, like Joss Whedon’s seminal Buffy The Vampire Slayer before it, fans watched the series’ characters grow from teenagers into adults, with the supernatural elements of the series used as the storytelling device to tackle important subjects relevant to the series’ audience such as sexuality, gender, love, mental health, bullying, abuse, trauma, identity, friendship, family, and responsibilities.
The series never shied away from discussing and presenting these subjects in stories that never spoke down to or underestimated their audience. Ensuring always that they were portrayed as realistically and sensitively as possible. Often as part of the supernatural events of each season’s overarching story as well as showing the inner lives of the series’ characters, both young and old.
It is because of this depth of storytelling by series creator and showrunner, Jeff Davis, and his writing team, in addition to the performances of its stars, that the series has such a dedicated fanbase, without whom, by the stars’ and creators’ own admissions, this upcoming movie would not be possible.
