Before San Diego Comic-Con could even really get going this year, it was hit with some big renewal, cancellation, and series finale news. Following the announcement that Marvel’s Daredevil would be renewed for a third season after all as well, it looks like one of MTV’s flagship original series is going to come to an end next year, much to the surprise and disappointment of its fans.
Showrunner Jeff Davis has announced that the upcoming sixth season of Teen Wolf will be its last, with the show coming to an end with its final, also 100th episode sometime in 2017. Davis commented on the final season as well, which will apparently be more “high school-focused” than any of the prior seasons, as the characters approach graduation:
“I know we’re sad about it and it’s bittersweet but we’re so happy to be able to come to Comic-Con and share it with you guys.”
“They’re on the verge of graduation and it’s a big thing for them. It’s especially a big thing for Scott who is worried about how he can leave Beacon Hills: Is he going to be passing the mantle on to Liam who isn’t yet an alpha but desperately wants to start acting like one?”
The news doesn’t necessarily come as that big of a shock to fans, as a number of cast members have departed the series over the years, and there were rumors that Tyler Posey’s Scott McCall would be leaving once he graduated in the show as well. On the bright side, Dylan O’Brien has officially signed back on for the final season, which means that Stiles and Scott’s famous friendship will continue into its final episodes. So at least there’s that.
Teen Wolf will air its final and 100th episode in 2017.
