Now here is the sign of the times: THR.com is reporting that MTV is in early discussions with Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis about reviving his soon-to-end television series as an anthology series. Yes, Hollywood is now talking about rebooting series before they even come to an end.
Now, the current storyline is expected to continue after the 10-episode final season in the form of a Serial-esque podcast, but the network is talking to Davis about bringing the show back within a few years with a new class and new setting.
MTV president Chris McCarthy said:
"These characters and these stories have hit a peak. We are talking with Jeff about how do we actually keep that franchise alive. And the beauty of the evolution of media is you can see the series going on through a series of podcasts and then see a resurrection of a new class in a couple years."
As for why wait at all, McCarthy said:
"We want to give it enough time to let the series finale marinate a year or so, and then when we find the right story and the right cast, look to resurrect it."
Teen Wolf's potentially final season premieres Sunday, July 30 at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. C.
