Given the cult hit status of MTV’s Teen Wolf, Thursday’s announcement to a packed room of over four thousand, die-hard fans at San Diego Comic-Con that its beloved drama horror series will conclude with its sixth and final season premiering in November was a bit of a surprise.
The series – which spawned a legion of fans, pioneered social TV, and made international stars of Tyler Posey and Dylan O’Brien – will draw to a close with a 20-episode season, ending with its 100th episode in 2017.
Tyler Posey, Holland Roden, Dylan Sprayberry, Cody Christian and Khylin Rhambo, along with executive producer Jeff Davis bid fans a teary-eyed thank you and previewed the final season with an epic –and unsettling– Season 6 trailer:
This year marked the seventh consecutive trip to SDCC for Teen Wolf and, as always, the series’ panel had surprises in store. Cast members Ian Bohen (Peter Hale) and J.R. Bourne (Chris Argent) jolted the cast and fans by thundering onstage dressed as Beacon Hills’ newest villains: The Ghost Riders.
“Teen Wolf has been an extraordinary journey, one that captured the hearts and imaginations of fans more than we could’ve ever imagined,” said showrunner and executive producer Jeff Davis. “We’re eternally grateful for the support we’ve received over these past six years and we’re excited to take our brave fans on one last, thrilling adventure.”
The cast reflected on the past six seasons together in a special video.
