'Teen Wolf' Ending After Season 6, Dylan O'Brien Still 'Recuperating' During Comic-Con
By John Boone
Teen Wolf's Comic-Con panel got off to a raucous start: Tyler Posey, a self-proclaimed huge fan of Flashdance, strutted onstage to the movie’s iconic soundtrack and proceed to pour a bottle of water over his head. Classic Posey!
It only got more surprising from there. Posey and creator Jeff Davis announced on Thursday that the upcoming sixth season of MTV's supernatural series will be its last.
Teen Wolf will return with 20 episodes in November and the 100th episode will serve as the series finale. “We're sad about it and it's bittersweet but we’re so happy to be able to come to Comic-Con and share it with you guys,” Davis told the crowd.
"This has been the biggest movement that we've ever been a part of," Posey chimed in, addressing the fans. "You mean so much to me, so this ending is the ending of a huge era for all of us. Me, specifically, because I care so much about this show and want to be the leader of this show."
"I love every single one of you and want to hug every single one," he added.
Fans in Ballroom 20 were treated to an exclusive first look at the final season, a Stiles-heavy trailer that showed there might be some big trouble ahead for Dylan O'Brien's character. There's also a Nazi werewolf, evil horsemen called Ghost Riders, and plenty of bromance.
O'Brien, who suffered "very serious" injuries when he was reportedly run over by a car on the set of Maze Runner: The Death Cure in March, was absent from the panel, as Davis said he was "still at home, recuperating." The 24-year-old actor shot his scenes for Teen Wolf's final season before his accident.
