One of the MTV’s most popular scripted series, Teen Wolf, is coming to a thrilling conclusion this summer.
The series, which premiered in 2011, is loosely based on the 1985 horror comedy starring Michael J. Fox (Jason Bateman starred in the sequel). The series follows a teenage named Scott McCall (played by Tyler Posey), who (like in the movie) is bitten by a werewolf. Once bitten he must cope with how his new found life as werewolf impacts the people he loves, and his status as a teenager.
Unlike the Michael J. Fox film, however, the consequences here are much dire than funny. The series is filled with high octane action, macabre violence, and the dramatic trappings of high school.
At San Diego International Comic Con 2017, the Pop Break spoke with the entire cast of the series about its final season, which runs this summer.
We had the honor of speaking with series writer Jeff Davis as SDCC. Davis broke into the television world when he created, and wrote the initial scripts for CBS’ hit series, Criminal Minds. He was involved with series for the first few seasons, serving as an executive producer.
In this interview Davis talks about the series finale, breakout characters, questions of Jackson’s sexuality, and more.
