Teen Wolf season 5 will start filming in February which means the first episode will preview sometime in June 2015. This season will consist of 20 episodes split into two parts, however unlike season 3 this season will have one continuous storyline for both parts, but there will be a huge cliffhanger in the middle of the season. According to writer and producer Eric Wallace Teen Wolf season 5 is gonna be the scariest season ever! This season will be focused mainly on Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) Jeff Davis added that the supernatural villains of Teen Wolf will be making life a living hell for the residents of Beacon Hills.
Fans have known for a while now that one main character will not be present this season, but now Holland Roden has confirmed that one character will definitely be leaving Teen Wolf and that is official. If I started to list the number of people who have left, it might take some time.
With the bad news comes the good. Two main characters might return.
Now as much as we all want the two returning characters to be one of the heroes we all miss, with our luck it might end up being one of the villains we despise who returns to Beacon Hills.
Along with the two returning characters there will also be a two new characters this season, Doctor Vallack. (The creepy guy with the cyclops eye) whom we first meet at the end of season 4, played by Steven Brand, and Theo a lone werewolf with a mysterious past played by Cody Christian from Pretty Little Liars.
As for the storyline Jeff has stated that a more complex mythology will be present this season. The story of Malia's mother the Desert Wolf will be one of the main intrigues this season.
One of the important parts of this seasons storyline will be the mystery surrounding Jordan Parrish (Ryan Kelley) and what kind of supernatural being he is.
“Parrish has a major part in the whole plot of Season 5. He is a big deal. You may not find out what he is in [the first half of the season], but within the 20 episodes, you will definitely know.”- Jeff Davis
There has been a lot of speculation as to what kind of creature Parrish is and a lot of fan theories that seem pretty plausible. The popular theory is that Parrish is a phoenix. All we know about him so far is that he survived being set on fire, he is very strong and extremely good looking.
Although filming hasn't started yet the writers of Teen Wolf are hard at work coming up with a new plot for season 5, and no doubt plot twists that will make us go crazy! As Jeff Davis said:
"Much of our day is spent brainstorming various ideas. Usually we start with characters. What does each character want? What do they need? Where's the greatest conflict?"
Jeff revealed what he plans to do for each character in season 5
Scott McCall (Tyler Posey)- “We’re going to test Scott in big ways. He’s done very well as a leader, but what happens when he fails? What happens when everyone’s faith in him is tested? He’s going to go through a lot of difficulty this season.”
Stiles Stilinksi (Dylan O'Brien)- "It’ll be interesting to see when Stiles loses faith in Scott, where his relationship with Malia is tested and broken. We’re going to have a lot of character drama and conflict with that.”
Lydia Martin (Holland Roden)- “I think Holland is one of the best actors we have and we love seeing what else she can play. She’s funny, she can play heavy drama, she’s great in horror stuff too. She’s going to have a lot to do this season, but it’s very much secret. All I can say that the cold open of the season premiere is all about Lydia.”
Malia Hale (Shelley Hennig)- “The Desert Wolf is huge for Malia. It’s going to affect her deeply and make her question the kind of person she is. It could even affect her relationship with Stiles and tear them apart.”
Kira Yukimura (Arden Cho)- “She’s going to be struggling with the kitsune as a spirit within her, struggling against it as she grows in power. We really dive into the myth behind the kitsune; how it affects her life and how it affects her relationship with Scott. Does that tear them apart? Is there a moment where we’re not sure if these two are going to last?”
Part of Jeff's method is meeting with cast members separately to discuss their characters storylines. After Jeff met with with Linden Ashby (Sheriff Stilinski) he had this to say about the upcoming season of Teen Wolf....
I'm guessing fear is gonna play a major role next season, and of course, blood. Here's a sneak peak at the name of the first episode.
It certainly raises a lot of questions. After season 4 ended with us catching a glimpse of all the supernatural beings locked away in Eichen House, this could refer to any one of those creatures.
In an exciting turn of events, this season Tyler Posey will be making his debut as a producer on the show!
"I'm a producer on Teen Wolf this season! So that's new and exciting. I want to do everything."- Tyler Posey
The bad news is that Coach Bobby Finstock who is played by Orny Adams will not be appearing in Teen Wolf season 5 at all. Which is really sad since Coach is one of the funniest characters on the show.
The really, really bad news is that Tyler Hoechlin who plays Derek Hale will no longer be a series regular anymore.
“Tyler Hoechlin decided he wanted more time to pursue movies. We talked and creatively agreed that maybe this was a good season to refocus on the teens of Teen Wolf, and while he won’t be a series regular anymore, I can say that you probably won’t have seen the last of Derek Hale. We love him and miss him.”- Jeff Davis
This news has left Teen Wolf fans devastated, but also furious.
There has been a lot of talk going around that season 5 of Teen Wolf will be the last, although Jeff Davis hasn't confirmed anything I can say for certain that fans do not want to say goodbye to this amazing show and its characters yet. Or maybe ever. With all these spoilers it's gonna be torture to have to wait for Teen Wolf season 5, the season hasn't even started yet and already the intrigue is killing us!
