Here’s what you need to know from the Teen Wolf Panel at NYCC:
MTV’s Teen Wolf panel on Friday, October 9th at New York Comic-Con 2015 was full of thrills and surprises. In addition to scheduled appearances by Tyler Posey, Dylan Sprayberry, Cody Christian, and executive producer Jeff Davis, there was a surprise guest: J.R. Bourne!
After the crowd went wild upon his entrance, a trailer for the next part of the season (5b) was shown. It was revealed in the promo that Bourne, who plays the beloved character of Chris Argent, will make his return to the show! Additional clips show Scott (Tyler Posey) and Stiles (Dylan Oâ€™Brien) in a physical altercation; Sheriff Stilinski (Linden Ashby) in the hospital; new love interests for Liam (Dylan Sprayberry) and Mason (Khylin Rhambo), and a focus on Lydia (Holland Roden) in Eichen House.
Watch the trailer here below!
Davis gave some clues into what fans can expect for the rest of the season, and it appears Lydia will be the primary focus. He explained that the season will culminate in an attack on the Eichen House to free Lydia, and that Stiles will be the one to â€œgo the distanceâ€ for her. As tensions rise, Deputy Jordan Parrish (Ryan Kelley) and Lydia will have a steamy love scene together (isnâ€™t she supposed to be in high school and he’s a grown adult?!). Davis hinted that another character could be coming back, but did not reveal who that is.
As usual, Posey was a fan favorite and exclaimed, â€œI love you guys!â€ multiple times. He even went against the rules to take a photo with a fan during the question and answer session.
Beyond the main plot points, viewers will see some big stunts, many of which are done by the actors themselves. When asked when Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) would be back, Davis deflected and said the fan would have to ask Derek.
Teen Wolf returns on Tuesday, January 5, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on MTV.
