“Teen Wolf” Season 3 is about to begin, and fans have been promised a darker, more action-packed season. The new opening title sequence for the MTV show makes that abundantly clear with one of the very first images: Scott McCall is fully clothed.
Granted, most of the opening credits retain that mix of passion, horror and shirtlessness that so beautifully define this rather incredible series. But a few things — other than extra gratuitous male nakedness — are missing.
Big changes for the third season of “Teen Wolf”:
- For the obvious reason that he left the series, Colton Haynes (Jackson) appears nowhere in the credit sequence. This alone decreases the hotness factor by a significant degree.
- Scott (Tyler Posey) goes all levitation-y on us early on. There is probably something important to this, but the upcoming season will have to explain it.
- There is a brief and frightening image of hands reaching for each other. This is rather cool.
- Perhaps to make up for the lack of full-male-toplessness, we do get a couple of up-close views of muscled torsos sporting tattoos.
- There’s no lacrosse anywhere in this video. What’s up with that, “Teen Wolf”?
