Teen Wolf season 6 is expected to air this coming November with all of the previous seasons cast returning and rumors swirling about multiple returning stars like Colton Haynes and Daniel Sharmen making their way back to the show. It seems though that one fan favorites future with the show is in jeopardy:
Dylan O'Brien who plays Stiles Stinlinski on the show, is still recovering from the serious injuries that he sustained while shooting Maze Runner: The Death Cure. The injuries are so severe that speculation has started as to whether or not he will be available to film season 6 of the show. Which means Stiles' return is very much in question.
It seems that show runner Jeff Davis is trying to do some damage control and possibly appease some of his young fan base with confirming that the show is in talks with One Direction star Harry Styles about a possible role in the series.
Davis said this while addressing rumors that Styles could join the cast:
"No, they're not 100% fake. We do want Harry Styles in our show. Like a new British boy. But we're still in talks with people, directors, agents. So we can't confirm anything yet."
No real hint at what this role could be. Harry Styles has stated he's been looking into more acting opportunities with his time on One Direction starting to wind down, so it makes sense that he would be interested.
While some fans are speculating that the character of Stiles could be re=casted and O'Brien be replaced by Styles, that is more than likely not the case. The character of Stiles is too beloved by the shows fans and O'Brien is adored as the character. Re-casting would more than likely anger fans to the point of dangerous backlash.
It is more likely that by Jeff Davis' brief hint at a possible character: "Like a new British boy," that Styles would be playing a new character on the show. Would he play a human, werewolf, or some new form of mythical creature? Either way I think that we are all now picturing Harry Styles with fangs and yellow, blue, or red eyes.
Since posting this article, MTV has confirmed that the quote from show runner Jeff Davis was fake and Harry Styles has NOT been in talks with the show.
Teen Wolf season 6 is currently scheduled to premiere November 2016.
