Teen Wolf to end after season 6
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – 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.”
First Look at Dylan in Season 6 of Teen Wolf
MTV & Entertainment Weekly have released the first look of Dylan in the sixth season of Teen Wolf. These photos were taken before Dylan’s accident and aren’t new. He is still resting and recovering, but we hope to hear more news soon. You can check out the first look photos in the gallery.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – It’s official: EW can exclusively reveal that Dylan O’Brien will appear in Teen 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.”

‘Maze Runner: Death Cure’ Release Pushed Back to 2018
VARIETY.COM – Fox has moved back its release for “The Maze Runner: The Death Cure” by nearly a year to Jan. 12, 2018, as star Dylan O’Brien recovers from his March 17 injuries after an on-set car accident.
Fox made the announcement Friday, a month after disclosing that resumption of principal photography on “Maze Runer: The Death Cure” had been delayed for a second time to allow O’Brien more time to fully recover from his injuries. The studio has not revealed when production will re-start.
The movie — the third in the Maze Runner trilogy — had been set for a Presidents Day weekend release date of Feb, 17, 2017. Wes Ball is directing the film. O’Brien’s character is on a mission to find a cure to the “Flare,” a deadly disease.
O’Brien was hit by a car and suffered multiple injuries on March 17 on the set in British Columbia. The 24-year-old actor was taken to a local hospital for observation and treatment following the accident.
The 2014 original grossed $102 million in U.S. receipts, and 2015 follow-up “The Scorch Trials” tallied $82 million in domestic box office.
Fox made several other release date announcements Friday, including dating “Alita: Battle Angel” for July 20, 2018. Rosa Salazar, who starred in “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials,” has been tapped to play the female lead in “Battle Angel” with James Cameron producing and Robert Rodriguez directing.

Dylan O’Brien In Talks To Play Mitch Rapp In Vince Flynn Spy Novel Adaptation ‘American Assassin’
DEADLINE – EXCLUSIVE: Dylan O’Brien is in negotiations with CBS Films to play Mitch Rapp in American Assassin, the adaptation of the Vince Flynn bestselling novel series that Michael Cuesta will direct for CBS Films and Lionsgate. O’Brien will play the title character, who ruthlessly carries out covert counter-terrorist operations for the CIA in the book series. A deal is expected to make shortly, ending a long search for what is expected to be a star making role. He would star alongside Michael Keaton, who signed on earlier to play Stan Hurley, a badass Cold War veteran who teaches the young assassin everything he needs to know. Stephen Schiff adapted the novel and Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Nick Wechsler are producing. CBS Films and Lionsgate are co-financing; CBS Films is overseeing the production and marketing while Lionsgate will release what is hoped to be the start of a series. Production begins this summer.
Lionsgate will be selling foreign on the film, and having O’Brien in the fold will surely help. It also means he’s recovering from his injuries incurred during the shooting of Maze Runner: The Death Cure, which had to be postponed to give him time.
The series will begin as Rapp is a black ops recruit who’s devastated by the loss of his fiancee to a terrorist attack. The CIA deputy director assigns the shadowy Hurley to train a grief-stricken but highly motivated Rapp how to thwart terrorist operations and hunt the perpetrators. As Rapp’s training progresses, the pair is dispatched on a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent to stop a mysterious operative from starting World War III in the Middle East. Rapp appears in 14 bestselling novels written by Flynn, who died in 2013. This has long been thought of as fertile ground for an action franchise, but it has taken forever to crystallize.
O’Brien is best known for The Maze Runner, and he’s part of the cast of the upcoming Deepwater Horizon, which is being made by Summit so clearly they got a good look at the young actor’s potential. WME and Principal Entertainment rep him.
