With MTV possibly reviving Teen Wolf after the end of the current series, the potential was there for stars of the show to pay a visit. But there’s one star who likely won’t be dropping by: Don’t count on Dylan O’Brien, who plays fan favorite Stiles, to be part of the pack if a revival was to come to fruition.
In fact, it was ET’s Leanne Aguilera who broke the potential revival news to O’Brien at the American Assassinjunket.
“I haven’t heard anything about this, but I can guarantee you I probably won’t be in it,” the 25-year-old actor told ET on Monday. Bummer!
Even so, O’Brien revealed his anticipated return in the final 10 episodes of Teen Wolf wasn’t meant to happen originally. Instead, O’Brien wanted to pay one last tribute to his beloved character.
“[It was] really important to me,” he said of his return. “That was not the plan, either. I wasn’t originally able to be a part of the last 10 [episodes] at all, nor was I contracted to be.”
“It was cool that we were able to find space of a couple weeks where I was home and I could go be a part of a few episodes, so I was glad to be able to do it ‘cause I’ve been with the show since the beginning obviously,” O’Brien continued. “For me, it was my first role ever, so it would’ve been hard to eventually just not be a part of something that was still ongoing.”
O’Brien emphasized again that the decision to return for the final episodes was something he wanted to do: “Fully voluntary. It was all heart.”
"The state that you're in after something like that, you just want to run from all that stuff," O'Brien said, referring to the dangerous stunts and high-energy fight scenes in action films. "I didn't really even want to leave my couch necessarily when I was allowed to, so yeah, it was a big step doing this."
"I ultimately decided that I wanted to try it and I didn't want to let it go," he added. "[The movie] ended up being really instrumental in the whole process."
Teen Wolf returns for the final 10 episodes on Sunday, July 30 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. American Assassin hits theaters Sept. 15.
