We’re Getting a Season Four and Other Revelations From Teen Wolf‘s NYCC Panel


Mountain aaaaaash! Sorry, just had to get that out of the way.

Yesterday’s Teen Wolf panel at New York Comic Con was host to a whole litter of revelations—for example, Linden Ashby doesn’t know what “feels” or “headcanon” are, Dylan O’Brien doesn’t know who Iago is, and Ashby can rock a fan-made infinity scarf—but the biggest one is that the show’s getting a fourth season and a post-episode talk show called Wolf Watch. The latter, in the same vein as The Talking Dead, will be hosted by Jill Wagner, who played season one’s Kate Argent.

Unlike season three, which consists of 24 episodes split into two parts, season four will be only 12 episodes. We know that season four will start in 2014, presumably in the summer because that’s when Teen Wolf always starts. I hope it’s later, though, since season 3B will run January-March. Give showrunner Jeff Davis more time to work on the show, MTV! Hopefully that’ll give us a tighter, less confused plot than season 3A had.

Other things we learned from the NYCC panel:

  • Stiles/Lydia is still a possibility. (Nooo, my brOTP!)
  • Mountain ash candy is tasty.
  • The Jeep’s name is Roscoe. Dylan O’Brien says it, so it’s true.
  • Jeff Davis wants to do more Teen Wolf comic books/graphic novels.
  • Yes, it is possible to get through an entire Teen Wolf panel without someone asking about Sterek. It was alluded to, but never explicitly mentioned. I was shocked.
  • Whereas season 3A was more action-heavy (read: endless werewolf dubstep battles), season 3B will be more in the vein of a psychological thriller.
  • Jeff Davis sometimes forgets to tell actors that he’s killing off their characters.

    After 2 and a half seasons, I still have no idea why anyone started shipping Sterek…

  • Chris de la Rosa

    I felt really embarrassed when some fangirls did start screaming Derek’s name at Dylan, but glad it never actually came up in the Q & A directly. And I say that as a Sterek fan (but I also multiship everything, so).

    What did irritate me were the Walking Dead hecklers who were camping out. They camped out since Archer, which is super dick considering the sheer number of them, and that I found out they heckled Archer, Superman AND Teen Wolf from some people. I naively tried to reach out to one by first asking if he’s seen BSG and then saying it’s honestly more like Buffy than Twilight. His answers were, “No, is this where you judge me?” and “I didn’t watch Buffy because I’m not a girl.”

    Guess where I did judge him.

    Because shippers can ship any ridiculous thing ….like Destiel!

    TW SPOILERS:

    Jeff Davis is a complete hack. How can you expect actors to portray their characters with nuance and depth when they don’t even know major, important things about their own characters? Jill Wagner (Kate Argent) and Meiko Hillman (Dept. Graeme) weren’t told their characters were dying till the DAY OF THE SHOOTING. Haley Webb wasn’t told that Jennifer was the Darach until the day of the shooting of the reveal.

    Not only does this hurt actor’s performance, it hurts them financially. Knowing their tenure on the show is ending lets actors seek work before their paychecks stop.

    And its not like Davis doesn’t know how to respect his actors. His relationship with Dylan O’Brian is great, he constantly bounces ideas for Stiles off him, incorporates head cannons from Dylan, and runs plotlines with him to get Dylan’s approval and lets him know months in advance for major plot points so Stiles can be nuanced as possible. And bless his heart, O’Brain uses his influence to get more Scott and Stiles scenes. Jeff also ran the Kanima plot-line by Colton Haynes before it went down to make sure he was okay with it (and possibly to convince him to stay on the show, since he was talking about leaving after season one as well), and Jeff worked closely with the makeup department to figure out changes to Jackson’s kanima makeup that could still work with the show and the plots when it turned out that Colton was allergic to it and couldn’t get in the full Kanima get-up as often as they wanted him to.

    And when Colton left to go be on Arrow (and announced it on his Twitter first), Jackson got shipped to London, but when Gage and Sinqua left to do other projects where they might have a better chance of starring roles and getting treated any kind of decently (after handling the process professionally, talking to Jeff and the Teen Wolf team about it every step of the way and telling them about it before making press releases), Boyd and Erica got murdered.

    Lets not even get into the mess he shovels on Tyler Posey.

    “Give showrunner Jeff Davis more time to work on the show, MTV! Hopefully that’ll give us a tighter, less confused plot than season 3A had.”

    Or better yet, get a new showrunner altogether!

    “Stiles/Lydia is still a possibility.”

    Ugh, why? I love Stiles, I love Lydia, I hate Stiles/Lydia. tbh I hate most pairings involving Lydia because that girl needs to some time on her own/just some steamy hook-ups after that mess named Jackson.

    I love Teen Wolf, I do, but it never fails to make me very angry 99% of the time, and Jeff Davis accounts for about 75% of that anger.

    I really, REALLY love you for saying all of this. And I didn’t know about the situation with Sinqua, and now I feel relieved I didn’t judge Jeff and I knew there had to be reasons behind Boyd’s “treatment”.
