'Teen Wolf' Ends Its First Season as Scott Faces Off Against the Alpha (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 16th 2011 8:23AM
This first season finale of 'Teen Wolf' (Mon., 10PM ET on MTV) could just as easily have been called 'Team Wolf.' Scott had his final face-off against the Alpha, but for the fortuitous arrival of his friends it might have ended very differently for him.

Kudos to Stiles for being the best comic relief, the cleverest guy in the room, and brave enough to face off against the Alpha. Who knew he had all that in him when we first met him three months ago? That said, we loved his reaction when the Alpha caught his fire bomb.

Luckily, he got an assist from Allison and then a back-up volley from Jackson of all people. Everyone coming together to face the "big bad." It's like a season finale of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' up in here!

Derek Appears to Jackson in a Nightmare on 'Teen Wolf' (VIDEO)

'Teen Wolf' - 'Wolf's Bane'Ever since Derek scratched Jackson's neck, the two have shared a sort of strange symbiotic connection. But a dream Jackson had in the hospital may have revealed a bit more the depths of their connection on 'Teen Wolf' (Mon., 10PM ET on MTV).

Jackson was probably pretty bummed to find out that not only can Derek haunt his waking hours, but now he's getting into his dreams as well. It's a good thing this was a dream, though, as the good doctor starting to pull some kind of grotesque sinew out of the scratches was almost too much to bear if it was real.

As for that connection, Jackson started talking about nightmares he'd been having about a burning house with people screaming. Could he be dreaming Derek's memories? The connection doesn't seem to be wolfie, as Jackson hasn't turned yet, but maybe that's still to come.

'Teen Wolf's Resident Brat Holland Roden on Fan Mail, Teen Shows and Her Number One Crush

by Annette Bourdeau, posted Jun 28th 2011 3:15PM
There may not be any cheesy-yet-awesome basketball montages, but the new 'Teen Wolf' certainly isn't letting anybody down. The dark drama has already attracted a loyal fanbase after just a few weeks on air. And really, why not? The MTV series has everything viewers are hot for these days: teen angst, teen lust, teen sports and a whiff of the supernatural.

Even though she hasn't gotten a ton of screen time in the first few episodes, Holland Roden is already one of the show's standouts as the bratty mean girl Lydia Martin. Fans eager for more of her snarky quips are in luck: we're going to see a lot more Lydia as the season progresses.

We caught up with Roden to chat about fan mail, her number one crush and why there's a lot more to Lydia than you might think.

'Teen Wolf' Reboot Has Teeth

by Stephanie Earp, posted Jun 7th 2011 12:30PM


There's not a lot I miss about being a teen -- the zits, the homework, the torturous first dates -- but the TV is one thing I wish I'd never outgrown. There's very little of that verisimilitude that grown-up dramas suffer from. From the highly unlikely guardianship of Charlie Salinger to the seriously misguided dating rules of Joyce Summers, teen shows always have some elements of wish fulfillment. Parents are young, attractive or entirely absent. TV teen drama can't be dismissed as silly, the way real life teen drama can be -- its usually an apocalypse, a tragic accident or a mysterious disease, or sometimes all of the above.

'Teen Wolf,' the MTV series that only vaguely resembles the '80s Michael J. Fox movie of the same name, has all the hallmarks of a high school classic.

Scott Experiences His First Transformation on 'Teen Wolf' Premiere (VIDEO)

Tyler Posey, 'Teen Wolf' premiereMTV kicked off their re-imagining of 'Teen Wolf' (Sun., 11PM ET on MTV) on a special night, after the '2011 MTV Movie Awards.'

The show shifts to its regular night and time with its second episode, on Monday, June 6 at 10PM ET. If you missed the premiere, you can watch it in its entirety on the show's website.

Considering how well the 'Twilight' franchise does at the annual 'MTV Movie Awards,' the network was smart in styling this new werewolf saga more after the heartthrobs and heartache of the movie series than the basketball shenanigans of the Michael J. Fox movie it gets its name from.

What to Watch: TV Picks for June 6 - 12

by Stephanie Earp, posted Jun 6th 2011 2:30AM


Teen Wolf - Monday June 6, 10 PM ET/PT, MTV Canada/MTV

MTV takes a risk with this luscious HD reboot of 'Teen Wolf' -- yes, the Michael J. Fox comedy from the 80s that's provided hours of parody scenes ever since. But this new version is anything but a joke -- it's dead serious, and looks to attract the pro-Jacob faction of Twi-hards. Previews and teaser reveal great cinematography, with much of the show shot after sunset. If the writing can match the mood, this could be a hit.

'Teen Wolf' Cast Howls, Talks Big Action & Other TV Wolves (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted May 31st 2011 4:30PM
It's not a comedy, there's no Boof and you won't see any werewolves surfing on top of a van -- MTV's new 'Teen Wolf' TV series has a much darker edge.

The story of a normal high school kid who gets awesome powers (yes, the same one Michael J. Fox made famous back in 1985), MTV's 'Teen Wolf' (premieres Sun., June 5, after the MTV Movie Awards) amps up the danger, the action and the sexiness for a new generation.

The cast of MTV's 'Teen Wolf'

I sat down with the hot-as-they-are-charming cast -- including Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Colton Haynes, Holland Roden and Tyler Hoechlin -- to talk about the new reboot, what to expect from the show and to get a preview of their best howling at the moon.

MTV's 'Teen Wolf' Trailer Looks Pretty Great (Don't Judge Me)

by Jean Bentley, posted Mar 30th 2011 12:06PM
Teen WolfMTV's 'Skins' experiment might not have gone as planned (or maybe it did, if the goal was to get the Parents Television Council riled up over a mediocre remake), but the network's 'Teen Wolf' actually looks like it could be a legitimate scripted hit.

The new three-minute trailer for the series, which premieres Sunday, June 5, at 11PM ET, is very blue-filter-heavy -- which probably lends to the 'Twilight'-y vibe our friends at Vulture pointed out -- but also looks ... kind of awesome?

There's plenty of angst, sexual frustration, action, not-too-shabby special effects, and did I mention angst? (I love angst.) Plus, some inoffensively cute boys playing dangerous mythical beasts with hyper-aware senses -- basically everything you need for a successful teen franchise nowadays. Suspiciously, there's no basketball; it seems teen wolves are into lacrosse nowadays.

Check out the full trailer after the jump.

Cable Grab Bag: A New 'Teen Wolf,' TLC's 'Sister Wives' and David Cross' 'Todd Margaret' - TCA Report

Cast of 'Teen Wolf' at 2010 Summer TCAs
The cable days at TCA are always a mixed bag. You ping pong from one room to another, viewing the wares of various cable networks that vary as widely as those channels themselves. At one point, you're shivering at the creepiness of yet another TLC voyeuristic series, then you're laughing at the antics of David Cross and The Kids in the Hall, then you're seeing the super-tanned cast of 'Jersey Shore.'

Friday's panels were all over the map, but there were some interesting moments. Some highlights:

-- Before bringing out Snooki and crew, MTV presented panels for a new American version of 'Skins,' about urban teenagers and all the sex, drugs and clubbing that they do, and a panel for a "re-imagined" version of 'Teen Wolf.' The critics were skeptical of both remakes, but the 'Teen Wolf' remake got much of the group annoyed. The only thing in common with the 1985 Michael J. Fox movie is the name of the main character, Scott Howard. In reality, the show is more serious, like 'Vampire Diaries' or 'Twilight.' Scott doesn't even play basketball; he plays lacrosse. So why call it 'Teen Wolf?'

MTV Orders 'Teen Wolf' Series

by Mike Moody, posted May 20th 2010 12:20PM
tyler posey teen wolfMTV has picked up a new series based on Michael J. Fox's '80s comedy 'Teen Wolf.'

The cable network has given the update, which will be less comedic in tone than the goofy 1985 flick, a 12-episode order, says the Hollywood Reporter.

Fresh faces Tyler Posey, Tyler Hoechlin, Crystal Reed and Dylan O'Brien will star in the series, about a high school geek who gains supernatural powers after being attacked by a wolf.

The series will depart from the original film's story, which followed a young Michael J. Fox dealing with a family curse that made him a hairy hero to his high school basketball team. MTV's version will most likely have more in common with The CW's 'Vampire Diaries,' and, of course, the 'Twilight' series than with Michael J. Fox's breakdancing and beer can-biting antics from the movie. (Maybe they should call it 'Tween Wolf?')

'Teen Wolf' joins a revamp of British teen drama 'Skins' on MTV's new schedule.

Teen Wolf gets some Tylers

by Brad Trechak, posted Dec 14th 2009 11:02AM
Teen WolfWe know a new version of the Michael J. Fox '80s flick Teen Wolf is coming to MTV. Now we have some names for the cast as well as a glimpse of the premise.

Apparently, MTV has cast two guys named Tyler as both the central protagonist and antagonist. Tyler Posey plays the nerdy high schooler who gets bitten by a wolf and Tyler Hoechlin has been cast as his arch-nemesis, another werewolf. One can only wonder if this casting was done in hopes that they would be confused for Taylor Lautner, the werewolf in the latest Twilight movie.

MTV keeps the '80s revival going with Teen Wolf pilot

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 1st 2009 10:02AM
Teen WolfMichael J. Fox's Teen Wolf was infectious fun back in 1985. By the time we got to Jason Bateman and Teen Wolf Too, a lot of the luster had worn off. Still, MTV thinks there's still plenty to mine from the concept, as they've ordered a pilot for a Teen Wolf series.

MTV VP Liz Gately says, "It has a fresh take and is very different from the original." They go on to explain that it's more similar to An American Werewolf in Paris (not London, but Paris). I'm still trying to wrap my brain around why remakes seem to be all the rage right now. Especially if this remake is so different from the source title. Why is it a remake then?

Have we reached a creative laziness where it's just easier to try and sell the public on a property they've already heard of than something brand new? If this is as "very different" as Gately says, then why not just call it something else entirely? Vampires and werewolves are popular enough right now with the kids that you don't need a 24-year old movie title to sell a series.

The kinder, gentler Halloween monsters of children's television - VIDEOS

by Richard Keller, posted Oct 29th 2008 12:04PM

Unless you're afraid of numbers, Sesame Street's The Count is pretty benign.Children's television is the ultimate pacifier. Where else in the world can a terrible, horrific monster that destroys both life and property with nary a whiff of sympathy be turned into a soft, cuddly character who has his own line of soft, cuddly dolls being sold at the local Wal-Mart? It's only later in life, after they've adjusted to these de-fanged monsters, do they realize that their beliefs were so wrong. Aaaannnddd, that's where the therapy comes in.

But, we're not here to talk about the emotional problems that are paralyzing you today. We're here to talk about those vampires, ghosts and mummies that were stripped down and made to be funny, clumsy and even musically oriented. After the jump you'll see a few examples of what I mean. Don't worry, they won't scare you...they've been homogenized for your nightmare-free pleasure.

Smallville actor signs on for Teen Wolf remake

by Adam Finley, posted Mar 31st 2007 12:01PM

tom welling

Note that other sites have categorized this as merely a rumor since I first posted this. Update at end of post.

Like most people who wish for dumb things, I've been patiently waiting for someone to remake the 1985 Michael J. Fox movie Teen Wolf, or to at least film my script that re-imagines Beowulf with Scott Baio in the lead role (I call it BaioWolf). Yes, I know Beowulf has nothing to do with werewolves, but in BaioWolf, everyone is a werewolf, something I believe the original epic poem lacked.

Well, apparently it's happening, and Smallville's Tom Welling has signed on for the Teen Wolf remake, but not as the titular werewolf. In this remake, the werewolf will be female. No word yet on who will play the lead, and apparently the filmmakers are still scouting locations.
