Teen Wolf fans already knew Scott was contemplating leaving Beacon Hills after graduation, but now it seems everyone will exit the town together.
Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis announced during Thursday’s Comic-Con panel that season 6 will be the show’s last. And with season 6 premiering on MTV in November, its 20-episode order means the series will bow out in 2017, with its 100th episode serving as a series finale.
“I know 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,” he said, before hugging star Tyler Posey.
Added costar Holland Roden, “I grew up with this gang of boys basically during my entire 20s… and it’s been the craziest ride. I probably wouldn’t be acting if it wasn’t for this show.”
Speaking to EW before the Comic-Con panel on Thursday, Davis said the final season was going to be a “great gift to the fans.”
Posey added he had an idea for where Scott could go in the final year, and said he loved working on Teen Wolf. “There’s nothing negative about all this,” he said of the final season. “I’m really happy. I’m going to cry my eyes out [at the end]. And it’s going to be an ugly-cry too.”
For now, EW has an exclusive first look at the trailer for the show’s upcoming final season, which not only gives viewers their first glimpse at the Ghost Riders in action, but it also features a surprise return by none other than Peter (Ian Bohen). Because no matter what happens, Peter will never die.
“When we realized this might be the last season, we wanted to make sure we brought back these relationships,” Davis said during the Comic-Con panel. “We definitely wanted Peter Hale back to see the relationship between Peter and Malia and what other trouble Peter could get into… and we also have some great scenes between Peter and Stiles. I wanted to see again and Ian and Dylan [O’Brien] have some great stuff this season so we’ll see.
As many of you know, MTV released some official pictures of Dylan from season 6 of Teen Wolf. These photos aren’t recent and were taken before Dylan’s accident and as far as we know, he is still resting and recovering.

It’s official: EW can exclusively reveal that Dylan O’Brien will appear inTeen Wolf’s sixth season. Despite suffering injuries while filming Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the actor will still play a crucial role when the show returns this fall. Furthermore, Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis assures EW that Stiles’ role might be more important than ever.
“Stiles is a big part of the season because a lot of this season’s mystery revolves around him,” Davis says. “We’re going to see just what Stiles’ friendship means to Scott, Lydia, and Malia. We’re going to see why exactly he’s Scott’s best friend, what it means that he’s Malia’s human anchor, and what his will-they-or-won’t-they relationship is with Lydia.”
EW has an exclusive first look at O’Brien in the first episode of season 6 (below), in which many fans will take note of a hand brace. However,as the photo was taken before O’Brien left to work on the third Maze Runner film, Davis says it was a completely separate injury. “That is a Dylan O’Brien injury that was written into the show,” Davis says. “You’ll see what happens with that in the first episode.”
But looking past the first episode, Davis says that putting Stiles at the center of the season 6 mystery had always been the plan. So despite the fact that the below photo was taken before O’Brien’s accident, Davis’ season-long plan didn’t change post-accident. “When we were going into discussing this season, knowing that Dylan O’Brien had a big movie he was going off to do, we wanted to make sure that Stiles was going to be a very important part of Teen Wolf 6A,” Davis says. “So a lot of this story is about Stiles.”
Although Davis wouldn’t spoil exactly why everyone is going to have to re-analyze their relationship with Stiles this year, Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey elaborates a bit, telling EW: “Everybody has a lot of reflecting to do. It’s beautiful. It’s so cool what we do. You fall in love with Stiles every episode. It really makes you think of all the cool s–t that we’ve done with Stiles and Scott over the past few years, so it’s a really reminiscent season.”
As for the friendship between Scott and Stiles — which was put to the test in season 5 — Posey adds, “They’re very in love with each other.”
