Fans of MTV’s Teen Wolf should prepare to lose more than just their minds when the series returns in January.
Someone from the heart of the series will not live to see season 4, according to Happy Cool’s interview with series creator Jeff Davis.
“Prepare to lose someone,” Davis teased. “We will be possibly be changing out main title sequence so not everyone’s going to make it out of this season alive.”
As the teen supernatural drama prepares to unleash one of its darkest storylines yet, the revelation that death is imminent is not too surprise. The idea that the slain will be one of the series core characters, however, is slightly more unnerving.
The title sequence for season 3A consisted of Scott McCall (Tyler Posey), Stiles (Dylan O’Brien), Allison Argent (Crystal Reed), Derek Hale (Tyler Hoechlin), and Lydia Martin (Holland Roden), meaning one of these five could be departing the series. However, it is unknown if the opening credits will be the same for 3B, which opens up the possibility that Issac Lahey (Daniel Sharman) or Kira (Arden Cho) could also be targets.
Despite the looming specter of one major departure, Roden recently hinted that the death toll of the next 12 episodes may be drastically less than last summer. The young banshee won’t be screaming nearly as often, according to E!.
“Wolf Watch” will be hosted by Jill Wagner, who plays “Kate Argent” in “Teen Wolf.” The half-hour talk show will give fans even more insight into the hit series, covering topics ranging from the heavy mythology elements featured in the season, to the steamy romances and hilarious bromances that run rampant between the series’ supernatural high-schoolers. The series will welcome guest appearances by “Teen Wolf” cast members sharing behind-the-scenes secrets and celebrity super fans will also drop in to get some of the answers viewers crave from week to week.
The season premiere episode picks up three weeks after saving the lives of their parents, Scott, Stiles and Allison begin to suffer strange side effects from their ritual sacrifice. At the same time, the newly enlightened Sheriff Stilinski scours through old cases, reassessing whether each could have had supernatural causes. Throughout the upcoming season, Scott struggles to find his place as an Alpha, while he, Allison and Stiles begin to experience strange side effects as a result of reigniting the power within Beacon Hills. They soon discover that the answer to their problems may be found in a new student named Kira (played by Arden Cho), a girl with remarkable powers of her own.
