Scott McCall and his pack have faced their share of danger over Teen Wolf‘s six seasons – but their troubles are far from over.
MTV released a first look at the hit supernatural show’s final ten episodes ahead of the network’s Movie & TV Awards on Sunday. While the clip starts out with pretty standard fare for the pack – with Scott (Tyler Posey), Lydia (Holland Roden), and Malia (Shelley Hennig) chasing down a killer in the woods – it soon becomes clear that they are not alone.
Scott and Malia hear heartbeats – and a lot of them. They’re being hunted, and the people on their trail are shooting to kill.
Check out the sneak peek below:
If hunters will indeed be the big bad for Season 6B, that will be an interesting direction for the show, with some important callbacks. Aside from Alpha Peter Hale, hunters were one of the first villains we were introduced to on Teen Wolf. This preview clip makes that connection especially clear with audio and even visual flashbacks to Scott and the Argent family from Season 1.
Between Chris, Kate, and Gerard Argent and the Calaveras from Season 4, we’ve seen a wide range of hunters throughout the show’s history. Though they all claim to follow a code, we’ve seen Chris Argent become sympathetic to the supernatural, while people like Kate and Gerard became fanatical in their ways. Depending on what sort of hunters we meet, even Chris could feasibly be in danger for “consorting with the enemy” in the form of Scott and his pack.
Though the clip isn’t much to go off of, these links to past seasons of Teen Wolf do get our wheels spinning. As we know, it would be far from out of the question for Beacon Hills to host several major villains during Season 6B as well. Speaking to TVLine, Executive Producer Jeff Davis gave one more hint as to his inspirations for Teen Wolf‘s final ten episodes. “Our inspiration was H.P. Lovecraft, so you’re going to be seeing a lot of dark horror,” he said. “We have some really disgusting stuff coming up.”
Teen Wolf will return this summer, though an exact premiere date remains TBD.
