Watch out, vampire shows. MTV’s “Teen Wolf” is looking to stake (pun fully intended) a claim in the supernatural genre.
The network’s latest original series, which is their new take on the ’80s movie of the same name, is set to premiere right after the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, June 5. Tyler Posey stars as Scott McCall, a high school lacrosse player whose life is changed when he’s bitten by a wolf in the woods.
In the three short promos MTV released, you can get a taste of what this show’s wolves will look like — think sharp nails and teeth for starters. Unlike other werewolf fare currently on TV (“The Vampire Diaries” and “True Blood”), “Teen Wolf” won’t be using real wolves; These werewolves are Lycan and are still in human form.
Also appearing in the promos are Tyler Hoechlin, Crystal Reed and Colton Haynes. Hoechlin will play the werewolf responsible for changing Scott, Reed will play his love interest (whose dad happens to be a werewolf hunter, ruh-roh!) and Haynes will play the star lacrosse player/resident jerk.
Will you be checking out “Teen Wolf” on Monday, June 5, Zappers?
