News broke in September 2021 that MTV’s teen wolf series will return, but this time as a movie – a major feature-length revival, if you will. It was great news for fans of the show to learn that some of their favorite characters, even those who died in the series, would also be returning.
Although the show ended in 2017, Paramount+ signed a deal with the show’s creator, Jeff Davis, to reopen the story. The sneak peek for the film was released on July 22, 2022, giving audiences a glimpse of what MTV’s 2011 series renewal will bring along with the beloved supernaturals. Here’s everything you need to know about Teen Wolf: The Movie: cast, plot, release date, and more.
When is Teen Wolf: The Movie released?
After running for 6 seasons, the teen wolf series was canceled for a seventh season mainly due to low ratings. The series was undoubtedly a hit when it first aired, but along the way many people lost interest, which could be due to its increasingly complex stories. Paramount+ decided to use it as a starting point for a movie and signed the show’s creator, Jeff Davis, to the deal.
As of now, there is no word on possible sequels, but if this movie can bring in more subscribers to the streaming platform i.e. Paramount+, then sequels might be possible. The season 6 ending could affect the plot of Teen Wolf: The Movie.
An official release date for the film has yet to be announced, but it is expected to come out somewhere in October 2022. The film will also serve as a starting point for the upcoming Wolf Pack TV series.
Teen Wolf: The Movie Expected Release Date
Teen Wolf: The movie is expected to be released in October 2022. The filming lasted about 3 months, that is, from March 21 to May 13, 2022. The movie is in the post-production stage. A tweet by the Teen Wolf: The Movie crew confirmed the “closing” in May and congratulated the cast and crew on the completion of filming.
Where to watch Teen Wolf: The Movie?
The film was signed with paramount+ in September 2021, which means that it will be released on the same platform. Teen Wolf: The Movie will be released sometime in October 2022 on the Paramount+ streaming platform.
Although the date has not been revealed yet, it will surely motivate Teen Wolf fans to consider a subscription to the platform. The Teen Wolf series, seasons 1-6, is currently available to stream on Hulu, Prime Video, and Paramount+.
What is the plot of Teen Wolf: The Movie?
Plot details may be scant for the movie, but the time jump and location are confirmed. Teen Wolf: The Movie is based in the town of Beacon Hills (the main location of the Teen Wolf series) and is set nearly a decade in the future.
Scott’s teenage years are over, but he’s still the alpha werewolf. Life is tough when you’re an Alpha, as Teen Wolf season 3 shows, but Scott has done well to hold on to his legacy as an Alpha. The film will focus on the main villain who is described as “the most powerful and deadly” according to the published synopsis of the film.
At the end of Season 6, Scott’s voiceover explained how Beacon Hills is different. Werewolves and Banshees could now exist in a world where humans know them but aren’t afraid of them. Now how this will play out in the movie is something all fans will have to look forward to.
Gerard’s war against the supernatural and Derek, Jackson and Ethan’s return to Monroe (in the season 6 finale) had a huge effect on the Teen Wolf universe. Even though Scott and his friends defeated Monroe at Beacon Hills and destroyed the Anuk-Ite, there were still many others loyal to Monroe’s cause, such as the other hunters, who might want to carry on Monroe’s legacy.
According to the press release made by paramount+, some of the supernatural creatures that will return are hellhounds, coyote men, banshees, and kitsunes.

One of the main disappointments of the film is the absence of Dylan O’Brien, who played Stiles in the original series. When asked about it, he said that even though the show meant a lot to him and his career, he decided that they were leaving him in a really good place for him, but he wanted to leave it.
He wholeheartedly wished the film success, but O’Brien has decided to film his next projects. Fans will definitely miss his presence, for a role that landed him in some really exciting movies.
The most surprising return revealed in the trailer was that of Crystal Reed, who played Allison Argent and was killed off in Season 3 of Teen Wolf. Jeff Davis clarified that it is not a cameo and that she is a big part of the film.
Russell Mulcahy directed the film; Jess Davis has written it and is also serving as executive producer.
Social Media Talk About Teen Wolf: The Movie
Social media has mixed feedback from fans about this movie. While some can’t accept how Allison Argent came back like this after being killed off in Teen Wolf season 3, others are happy to see the character return. Some have shown that they are not interested in not seeing the film since O’Brien will not return as Stiles.
Is there a trailer for Teen Wolf: The Movie?
Scott’s powers seem to be put to the test as his luminescent eyes and awkward expressions are teased in the trailer released on July 22, 2022. Tyler Posey, Tyler Hoechlin, and Jeff Davis shared the sneak peek at San Diego Comic-Con 2022 .
Allison is revealed in the trailer wearing her arsenal of weapons, indicating that her return may be tied to Monroe’s larger cause. Although Stiles’ absence from Teen Wolf: The Movie is a cause for sadness among fans, Allison’s return as a villain would provide a perfect link between the movie and the series.
It’s also an interesting way for Teen Wolf to tie up the loose thread of the series that was so little interrupted. The film will also explore Allison’s complex relationship with Scott and his family of supernatural hunters.
Allison has a complicated status throughout the series as a protagonist and antagonist and now it seems to get even more complex as she returns as a villain. She was seen when Scott ominously exclaimed, “She’s back!” to Chris Argent towards the end of the teaser.
