With Teen Wolf coming-up on its final half-season, MTV announced exclusively through Variety that the first of the series' final ten episodes will premiere on Sunday, July 30 at 8 pm, and released an exclusive teaser trailer. To further promote the remainder of the sixth season and to give fans one more chance to show their love and appreciation, MTV will also be bringing the series back for a final victory lap at this year's Comic-Con International (SDCC 2017) in the San Diego Convention Center's hallowed Hall H.
Teen Wolf introduces viewers to social outcast Scott McCall (Tyler Posey), a high school student in the town of Beacon Hills whose life is dramatically altered when he's bitten by a werewolf before the start of his sophomore year. McCall is forced to find a balance with the beast the resides in him while trying to survive day-to-day life as a teenager. Over the course of the series, McCall would gain and lose allies as he came to understand that his "accident" that night was no accident at all…but part of a mystery older and more dangerous than any of them realize. By MTV moving the series to a high-priority time slot on Sunday night, the network is showing that promoting the final season of Teen Wolf is a high priority for them. From a practical business standpoint, MTV can only benefit from leaving both creative and the fan base happy, especially if there are opportunities to continue the Teen Wolf universe in the future.
As for SDCC 2017, Teen Wolf will taking-over "the big room," the San Diego Convention Center's Hall H, for the first time on Thursday, July 20 at 2 pm; with a panel that's expected to include cast members Posey, Dylan Sprayberry (Liam Dunbar), Shelley Hennig (Malia Tate), Cody Christian (Theo Raeken), and Khylin Rhambo (Mason Hewitt) as well as executive producer Jeff Davis. Audience members are also expected to be treated to an extended sneak preview of the upcoming final episodes. On Friday, July 21, the cast will set-up on the convention room floor for an autograph session with the fans; with Posey hosting MTV's fourth annual MTV Fandom Fest interactive experience from Petco Park later that same day.
