MTV’s Teen Wolf came to an end in September 2017 but the show’s cult fanbase has continued to call for season 7. Are we likely to ever see another season?
Based on the 1985 film of the same name, MTV’s Teen Wolf series earned a hugely dedicated cult following after it arrived on our screens in 2011.
As a result, there was a huge amount of disappointment when after six seasons, the Teen Wolf series was brought to an unexpected end in 2017.
However, an appetite for another season has remained among the series’ dedicated fanbase to this day but are we ever likely to see season 7 of Teen Wolf?
Teen Wolf season 6
Split into two parts, season 6 of Teen Wolf arrived on MTV in November 2016 and concluded the following September.
The 20-episode season concluded the story of Scott, Stiles, Lydia, Malia and the Beacon Hills pack at they completed their final semester of high school before the gang were reunited when a new villain emerged in Beacon Hills.
However, when season 6 was announced at Comic-Con in 2015, there was no hint that it would be the show’s final season.
As quoted in Deadline, series creator Jeff Davis said: “as long as you keep watching, we’ll probably get to keep making it. So thank you.”
Will we ever see Teen Wolf season 7?
- There are reportedly no plans to renew Teen Wolf for season 7 at the time of writing.
Unfortunately, Teen Wolf was seemingly the victim of a slump in viewing figures.
After season 1 opened with an average of 1.73 million viewers, Teen Wolf peaked in season 3 with 1.97 million viewers.
By season 5, that figure had dropped to 1.05 million viewers and less than half that amount tuned in for season 6.
However, according to Screen Rant, during a cast reunion in 2020, there was still interest in reviving Teen Wolf but series creator Jeff Davis admitted that he would not be involved if the show ever did return.
Who knows, with the show available to stream online, perhaps Teen Wolf’s cult following will grow big enough and vocal enough to warrant a seventh season.
Teen Wolf fans want more
Despite Teen Wolf leaving our screens more than three years ago, appetite for a return has still remained high among fans with many regularly taking to social media to ask for season 7.
One fan on Twitter recently commented: “We want season 7 to teen wolf!!!”
While another added: “Teen wolf season 7 where WHERE”
And finally, some fans even set up a petition calling for season 7 which has been signed more than 2,200 times at the time of writing.
Teen Wolf came to an end on MTV in 2017 after six seasons.
