MTV Renews Teen Wolf for Season 6! Plus: Watch the INTENSE Trailer for the Rest of Season 5 (VIDEO)

Teen Wolf and Comic-Con go together like Scott and Stiles. Luckily, MTV has always been really great about delivering the best news to those fans who've waited in line to see stars Tyler Posey, Dylan O'Brien, Holland Roden, and the rest of the cast take the stage. And Thursday was no different. The network continued its annual tradition of announcing series renewals during the show's Comic-Con panel, this summer revealing it had renewed the supernatural drama for Season 6. The series will again return for a 20-episode season, after the show's recent Season 5 premiere totaled 1.53 million viewers. 

As if the promise of 20 more episodes wasn't enough, MTV also released a crazy-packed trailer for the rest of Season 5, which hints at a fracturing of the Scott and Stiles bromance, Kira seemingly attacking Scott, Lydia being put under by the Dread Doctors (they officially have a name!), and what appears to be confirmation that Theo is the giant dick Stiles (and we) always assumed he was. Check it out in all its glory below:


This is the first season without original cast member Tyler Hoechlin, but his presence was still very much felt on the panel, because after Posey attempted to call him and got his voicemail, Hoechlin called back! Thanks to TVGuide.com, you can watch the entire phone call and hear Hoechlin say hello to the ballroom and admit he misses Derek all the time (see, he's just like us!). 

As sad as it was to see Hoechlin depart this season, it's only natural that people come and go as Teen Wolf ages. Series creator Jeff Davis said that Crystal Reed, who played Allison Argent until the character's death in Season 3, was actually the inspiration for the Senior Scribe that took place in the Season 5 premiere. However, if you're worried about Posey and O'Brien leaving Beacon Hills any time soon, you shouldn't be. Both actors recently spoke to Buzzfeed about their roles on the series and confirmed they're not going anywhere. 

“I’m just very aware of what this show means to me and I would never, by my own hand, say it’s time for me to move on. I’m going to miss this show when it’s over,” O’Brien said. “Forever and ever this will be my first role, and that’s so special. As long as the stories are still being told, I will have a hand in telling them.” 

Posey echoed that sentiment. “Whenever we leave it’ll definitely be sad, but I love being here. I can’t imagine Teen Wolf without me—and I don’t mean that in a cocky way. It’s just that this is my home, my family. The support group I have on this set… dammit, I just really love these people.”

Us too, Posey. Us too.

Teen Wolf airs Mondays at 10pm on MTV.

Tyler and Dylan are such BFFs that WHEN they decide to leave the show, it would probably be at the same time.

Other than my, mind you my mild excuse making but excuse making nonetheless, about Theo was not justified, I'm still wondering how much is real.

the trailer is nice but honestly the most valuable piece of information got here is that the show will be renewed for season 6. I am VERY happy to hear that because there were a lot of rumours going around this would be the final season.

I had known tyler and dylan were going nowhere, i saw that before. and while that is important i just wish we could get a statement like that from holland. tyler and dylan are very important to the show, they are the most important 2 characters to the show. however, as 1 of the now only 3 remaining original main characters holland roden is very important as well. so im hoping she stays around in season 6 because teen wolf without lydia just wouldnt seem right to be either

I heard that Holland quit and that season 5A was her last season. Could be a rumor but with the current story line I'm kind of worried.

i dont know. from an interview she gave a while ago she made it sound like she was growing tired of the role. but i follow her on twitter and she sounded excited that teen wolf was renewed for season 6. why would she be excited if she was leaving after this season right?
but you dont know for sure and i've tried asking her questions before and she never answered so..

What I don't understand is that the Dread Doctors have apparently visited Beacon Hills and killed before.

The Nogitsune had wreaked havoc there before.

The Argent's blinded Ducalion there so how it is that there's so little knowledge about the supernatural there?

I know I shouldn't compare TW and The Vampire Diaries but in Mystic Falls they'd encountered vampires once and two hundred years later still had a Council set up with strategies in place in case vampires returned.

How is it Beacon Hills managed to hold several different werewolf packs, an ancient Japanese creature, a magical tree, a trio of Mengele wannabes and not only did the FBI decide to bunk out but the Sheriff wasn't even informed or there isn't even a committee set up?

It's a TV show! That would completely ruin it. It's not like this is actually happening so there's no need to worry. Plus the werewolves and supernatural creatures kind of are the committee. And what do you mean the FBI decided to bunk out? The FBI was never involved....

Scott's dad was FBI, got involved in one case, realised there was something wrong in BH and then left even though whatever the issue was clearly involved his son.

They obviously need to go find Danny and ask him. I bet he knows more about Beacon Hills than just about anybody. But everybody just thinks he's a pretty face with no mind behind it.

Thank Eff for that. I was beginning to think that the newbies were being primed to take the central roles, Liam as the titular Teen Wolf, Mason as the Stiles, and even a new love interest for fill the Allison/Kira role for Liam. So pleased to hear that my worries are unfounded.

I'm so happy that season 6 will be 20 episodes like this season. I was worried we'd get another short season. Seems like JD and co don't like back-to-back extended seasons.

Posey's such a lovable goof! And Dylan O'Brien - I love that kid with all my heart.

So pumped for Season 6...BRING IT ON!!!

San Diego Comic Con is very intense, and can be quite overwhelming if you're not used to such an event. If you do go, go with at least one friend to help with standing in lines and dealing with the crowds.

I got so many feels reading Dylan O'Brien's and Tyler Posey's comments. Teen Wolf definitely wouldn't be the same without them. And when they leave, I'm gone as well. I miss Tyler Hoechlin. He really needs to come back ASAP.

That trailer is so intense. I can't wait to see what happens with the Dread Doctors. I believe that it was said they won't be conquered any time soon. Serious stuff. I wish I could watch Teen Wolf every day.

You think it can't be a better show than it already is, and then you read this stuff, and watch the trailer. It's always getting better. Love the cast, love the show.

FINALLY some good news about a show i love

and by the looks of it, i may be right about it being TW's craziest season yet

And the news that Dylan & Tyler aren't going anywhere is the best news a TW fan can ask for - TW without those two just wouldn't work

All these cast changes are hard to follow. There are so much opportunities for actors these days. Glad that didn't happen in the days of Buffy. If one of the Scooby Gang had left the show wouldn't have been the same. Currently binge watching the show on Netflix. I'm at the beginning of season four. The show isn't as good as Buffy. There are some weird inconsistencies in the mythology among other things. Sometimes i get a little annoyed by those hallucinations/dream sequences but i think that's just me. Overall i'm enjoying the show. I'm still in shock that Allison (Crystal Reed) died! She was one of my favorites. The actress wanted to quit because she thought she was getting too old. She was already 29 at the time. Playing a 17 year old at age 29 is apparently hard. One of her latest tweets #teenwolf says "Much more comfortable behind the camera. I miss you guys!" Good for her, but I still hope she returns to acting. And Now Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) is leaving too? oh well...

Curious, what kind of inconsistencies? And why do the dream sequences bother you? I admit sometimes their a little confusing but they're usually my favorite part! And Derek isn't leaving. He's just not going to be a season regular anymore. He's not in season 5A but he should be in season 5B.

oops i totally forgot about Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter) but she went to Angel so for me she wasn't really gone. But the Scooby Gang wasn't the same without her after season three. Ok. I shut up now.

These teasers can be a little deceptive, but it looks like to me maybe she was in a car crash, the car caught on fire and he saved her? I really can't see him as a bad guy.

the best news in this is that Tyler and Dylan are sticking around for a while, like I said in the review for this week's episode, I like the new people but I can't see it being Teen Wolf without the seniors, at least the main two.. it'd suck if Holland decides to leave though, and as much as I like Kira and Malia, they could easily leave for whatever reason and it'd suck but not have as much impact.

I actually like Malia. I can barely stand Kira. But if they both died right now I just wouldn't care. I'd feel bad because the guys would be sad but that's about it lol

Our main three can't go anywhere!! lol

I agree with you about Kira, but I feel like if Malia died, I would actually be legitimately sad. Malia is great; and I'm likin' her new haircut! Kira just does not strike me as an interesting character whatsoever. Sorry, Kira. (They've just inserted her as The Next Allison too quickly.) You're absolutely right though: the minute Stiles, or Scott, or Lydia leaves, I'm out. Luckily that won't happen for awhile!

I don't know why but I'm just not attached to Malia yet. But I do like her. The haircut is cute but I preferred her longer 'do.

I feel like Kira and Scott have no chemistry. Their relationship has been forced on us. I thought she was adorably awkward at first but the more I saw her, especially in her scenes with Scott, the less I liked her. She became extremely annoying. I was happy that she did something useful on this week's episode because I feel like her character is boring and useless.

Tyler Hoechlin isn't gone. He still has a contract signed with Teen Wolf. He won't be in season 5A but he should be in season 5B.

Daniel Sharman was cast as the lead role in a TV show that got cancelled and it's rumored that a familiar face is returning for season 5B..... perhaps it's Isaac?
