Post-finale blues have well and truly kicked in for fans of MTV hit series Teen Wolf, which wrapped its sixth and final season last week, but not all hope is lost with creators teasing a spin-off.
In the final episodes, a number of beloved characters from the past made a comeback, including the werewolf who started it all, Derek Hale, portrayed by Brisbane and Adelaide Supa-Star Guest Tyler Hoechlin.
Hoechlin’s return to the show saw a brief story arc alongside Dylan O’Brien, who made an appearance at the start of season 6B as an FBI cadet before he reappeared in the final two episodes to join Scott McCall and his pack, which featured another Supa-Star Guest in Shelley Hennig (Malia Tate).
It’s not surprising O’Brien was hard to lock down, given his increasingly busy film schedule (The Maze Runner, American Assassin), but much to the actor’s credit, he was the one he made sure “Stiles” Stilinski returned for the finale, even though he wasn’t contractually obligated to appear in the final 10 episodes.
There’s an infectious energy to the character, with O’Brien mastering a number of different emotional layers throughout the show’s seven year, and the chemistry during the FBI academy scene was amazing; more than enough to warrant its own spin-off with cameos from Hoechlin to keep the ‘Sterek’ hashtag alive and well.
Regardless of whether or not we do see such a spin-off, MTV has already unveiled potential plans to continue the story via a podcast, with MTV president Chris McCarthy saying they want to wait “to give it enough time to let the series finale marinate a year or so.”
“I think there’s plenty of spin-off ideas,” creator Jeff Davis told Hollywood Reporter last week. “I would love to see Jackson and Ethan in London as a podcast. Have one eight-episode maybe podcast about an adventure they go through there.”
“I could see any sort of spin-off within that world. If Hoechlin would be up for it, [I want to] follow [Derek in a podcast]. You know who would actually be great at it would be Daniel Sharman. If I could convince Daniel Sharman to reprise Isaac, because Daniel has done audio book recordings, I bet he would be great at a podcast.”
We haven’t heard the last of Beacon Hills.
