“This is the last Teen Wolf panel ever – until the reunion,” Tyler Posey joked to a packed Hammerstein Ballroom at New York Comic Con. The hit MTV series is set to conclude with its sixth season, a split-arc 20-episode final run premiering November 15. The NYCC panel on October 8 brought the feels, with Executive Producer Jeff Davis and cast members Posey, Holland Roden, Shelley Hennig, Melissa Ponzio, and Linden Ashby reflecting on Teen Wolf‘s journey and teasing what’s to come.
The panel began with a first look at the cold open for Season 6 – 8 jam-packed minutes featuring car crashes, blood, missing persons, and “a guy on a horse with a gun.” The Ghost Riders are here, and they aren’t messing around, people.
Take a look at the sneak peek below:
After this thrilling look at what’s to come in Season 6, the panel teased a few more details about what we can expect from our Beacon Hills favorites. “We’ll see a number of familiar faces,” Jeff Davis hinted when asked whether any fan faves will be making cameos in Season 6. While the only confirmed comeback at this point is everyone’s favorite uncle, Peter Hale (Ian Bohen), Davis said that he hopes to bring more beloved characters and actors back. “You wouldn’t believe the number of crazy ideas we’ve talked about in the writer’s room,” he added. “We have several unwritten episodes so we’ll see.”
Of course, it wouldn’t be Teen Wolf without a serious helping of emotional pain, so we weren’t too surprised when the conversation turned to potential character deaths. Davis teased that “certain characters may find their end in this last season,” revealing that there is a list of possibilities in the writers room – something the cast were surprised to learn. “I’m gonna go in there right now like, ‘Bitch, am I on that list?'” Melissa Ponzio (Melissa McCall) said.
I wouldn’t want to share the small screen with anyone else for 7 years other than these people. We just had our last panel as a teen wolf cast at comic con. Comic con has always been such a staple for teen wolf. It was the first time we realized how successful our little show was. So it was perfect to end it this way. More tears to come, but they’re happy tears. I love you all so much. Thank you for loving our bizarre little tv show and helping to turn it into what it’s become today. Whatever that is. Best, weirdest, hardest, greatest 7 years of my life. #TeenWolfForever
Davis also revealed that he had considered a Teen Wolf spinoff a few years back. “We wanted to do Eichen House as its own spinoff with Doctor Deaton as the head of Eichen gathering a supernatural team,” he said, referencing the extremely sketchy mental health facility featured on Teen Wolf.
Besides looking to the future, the Teen Wolf panel also reflected on the past – bringing all the feels. Asked when they knew the show had changed their lives, Tyler Posey responded, “The second I met Dylan [O’Brien].” Let’s just say that there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
With the upcoming themes of remembrance in Season 6, the panel was also asked how they would like their characters to be remembered. Shelley Hennig summed it up perfectly: “Remember them as a pack.”
From memories of happier times to bittersweet thoughts of the series’ end, Teen Wolf‘s final NYCC panel did not disappoint – and there’s plenty to look forward to in Season 6.
