News broke in September 2021 that MTV’s Teen Wolf series would return, but this time as a movie, a major revival of a feature film, to say the least. It was great news for fans of the show to know that some of their favorite characters, even those who died on the show, would be returning as well.
Although the show ended in 2017, Paramount+ signed a deal with the show’s creator Jeff Davis to resume the story. The teaser for the film was released on July 22, 2022, giving audiences a glimpse of what the 2011 sequel to the 2011 MTV series starring revered supernaturals will bring. Here’s everything you need to know about Teen Wolf: The Movie – cast, plot, release date and more.
When is Teen Wolf: The Movie coming out?
After 6 seasons, the Teen Wolf series was canceled for a 7th season mainly due to poor ratings. Undoubtedly, the series was a hit when it first aired, but over time many people lost interest, which could be due to the increasingly complex storylines. Paramount+ decided to use it as a starting point for a film and signed the show’s creator Jeff Davis to the deal.
At the moment there is no news about possible sequels, but if this film can attract more subscribers to the streaming platform ie Paramount+, sequels could be possible. The end of season 6 could affect the plot of Teen Wolf: The Movie.
An official release date for the film has not yet been 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 television series.
Teen Wolf: The Movie Estimated Release Date
Teen Wolf: The Movie is expected to be released in October 2022. The shooting lasted about 3 months, i.e. from March 21 to May 13, 2022. The film is in a post-production stage. A tweet from Teen Wolf: The Movie Team in May confirmed the “wrap” and congratulated the cast and crew on completing filming.
Where can you watch Teen Wolf: The Movie?
The film was signed to Paramount+ in September 2021, meaning it will be released on the same platform. Teen Wolf: The Movie is slated for release sometime in October 2022 on the Paramount+ streaming platform.
While the date is yet to be announced, it will surely motivate Teen Wolf fans to consider subscribing 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 scarce for the film, but the time jump and location are confirmed. Teen Wolf: The Movie is set in the town of Beacon Hills (the main setting of the Teen Wolf series) and is set almost a decade in the future.
Scott’s teenage years are over, but he’s still the alpha werewolf. Life is difficult when you’re an alpha, as shown in Season 3 of Teen Wolf, but Scott has done well to uphold his legacy as an alpha. The film will revolve around the main villain, who is described as “the most powerful and deadliest” according to the film’s published synopsis.
At the end of season six, Scott’s voiceover explained why Beacon Hills is so different. Werewolves and Banshees could now exist in a world where humans know them but are not afraid of them. All fans will have to wait and see how this will affect the film.
Gerard’s war on the supernatural and the return of Derek, Jackson and Ethan to Monroe (in the season 6 finale) had a huge impact on the Teen Wolf universe. 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, like the other Hunters, who wished to continue Monroe’s legacy.
According to Paramount+’s press release, some of the supernatural creatures set to make a comeback are the Hellhounds, Wereyotes, Banshees, and Kitsunes.

One of the film’s biggest disappointments is the absence of Dylan O’Brien, who played Stiles in the original series. When asked about it, he said that while the show means a lot to him and his career, he decided it would be left in a really good place for him, but he wanted to leave.
He wholeheartedly wished the film every success, but O’Brien has decided to film about his next upcoming projects. His presence will definitely be missed by fans for a role that has landed him in some really exciting films.
The most surprising return revealed in the trailer was that of Crystal Reed, who played Allison Argent and was killed by Teen Wolf in Season 3. Jeff Davis has clarified that it is not a cameo and she has a major role in the film.
directed by Russell Mulcahy; Jess Davis wrote it and is also serving as executive producer.
Talk about Teen Wolf: The Movie on social media
Social media has mixed comments from fans about this film. While some can’t accept that Allison Argent is back just like that after being killed off in Teen Wolf Season 3, others are excited for the character’s return. Some have indicated that they are not interested in not watching the film as O’Brien will not be returning as Stiles.
Is there a trailer for Teen Wolf: The Movie?
Scott’s powers seem to be put to the test, as evidenced by his bright eyes and awkward expressions in the trailer released on July 22, 2022. Tyler Posey, Tyler Hoechlin and Jeff Davis shared the teaser at San Diego Comic-Con 2022.
Allison is shown with her arsenal of weapons in the trailer, suggesting her return could be linked to Monroe’s broader cause. Although Stiles’ absence from Teen Wolf: The Movie saddens fans, the return of Allison as the villain would create a seamless connection between the film and the series.
It’s also an interesting way for Teen Wolf to tie up the series’ loose cord that’s been cut so short. The film will also explore Allison’s complex relationship with Scott and her family of supernatural hunters.
Allison has had a complicated status as a protagonist and antagonist throughout the series and now it seems to get even more complex as she returns as a villain. Scott was seen ominously exclaiming, “She’s back!” to Chris Argent near the end of the teaser.
