Scott (Tyler Posey), the teenage werewolf, is taking a chomp out of MTV as the network announces it has renewed the teen drama for a third season. MTV also doubled the size of Season 3 to include 24 episodes instead of the 12 episodes ordered for Season 2. The show is based very, very loosely on the 1985 comedy movie that starred Michael J. Fox. This new reboot of the teen wolf has a much darker aspect to it.
“Teen Wolf represents a terrific foray into the scripted world for the millennial MTV audience, and marks tremendous success in the continued diversification of our schedule,” MTV’s head of programming, David Janollari, said in a statement to TVGuide. “Renewing the show for a third season celebrates the creative vision of Executive Producer Jeff Davis and the remarkable talent of the cast who bring this bona fide fan favorite to life.”
“Teen Wolf” airs Mondays @ 10:00pm on MTV.
