The prayers of Teen Wolf fans around the world have finally received an answer. Paramount+ has confirmed a Teen Wolf well titled movie Teen Wolf: The Movie will be made, 5 years after the end of the MTV series. The majority of the main cast are expected to return for the film but sadly already three main characters will not be revived in the film.
Newsweek has everything you need to know about who is and who isn’t coming back and why.
Who does not return Teen Wolf Movie
A face that will certainly not return for the Teen Wolf film is Arden Cho, who played Kira in the original series.
According to a report from Deadline, Cho, the only actress of color among the series’ four female regulars, was approached to star in the film but ultimately declined when offered only half her co-stars’ salary. female stars.
Dylan O’Brien and Tyler Hoechlin
Dylan O’Brien and Tyler Hoechlin have not been officially confirmed as reprising their roles as Stiles and Derek respectively for Teen Wolf: The Movie.
Their names were noticeably absent from Paramount+’s announcement, but fans shouldn’t give up hope just yet, as Paramount+ has confirmed that the names are yet to be revealed.
O’Brien’s Stiles Stilinski was best friends with Tyler Posey’s Scott McCall and at the end of the series it was suggested that he would go to law school in Washington DC.
It may come as a bit of a surprise to fans that O’Brien is currently missing from the cast list, given that in 2020 he said Variety he was eager to reprise his role as Stiles in some form or another.
He said, “I would jump at the chance to do anything. We’ll get back together for something at some point.”
Although he was largely absent from the final season of Teen Wolf and ultimately turning to stone in the finale, fans were also hoping Derek de Hoechlin would make a return for the long-awaited reunion.
For now, why exactly O’Brien and Hoechlin aren’t playing in Teen Wolf: The Movie remains unknown.
O’Brien recently filmed Disappearances at Caddo Lake alongside Eliza Scanlen and Lauren Ambrose and Hoechlin currently stars as Clark Kent/Superman on The CW’s Superman and Loisit is therefore possible that planning is the reason for their absence.
Newsweek contacted Cho, O’Brien and representatives of Hoechlin for comment.
Here comes back to Teen Wolf Movie
The good news is that the majority of the main cast are set to reprise their roles in Teen Wolf: The Movie.
At the end of Teen Wolf on MTV, the door was left wide open for the story of the people of Beacon Hills to continue.
In the end, Scott, Stiles, Lydia (Holland Roden), Derek (Tyler Hoechlin), Malia (Shelley Hennig), Chris Argent (JR Bourne), Sheriff Noah Stilinski (Linden Ashby), Jackson (Colton Haynes), Ethan (Charlie Carver ) and Peter Hale (Ian Bohen) defeated Gerard Argent (Michael Hogan) and Tamora Monroe (Sibongile Mlambo) in the Battle of Beacon Hills.
Despite their victory, Monroe was able to escape, meaning her threat was not completely lessened. She eventually returned, pledging to kill every supernatural being that roamed planet Earth.
At the end of the series, Scott and Argent rescued a young werewolf named Alec (Benjamin Wadsworth) and invited him to join their pack to fight against Monroe and the Hunters. The show ended with Scott’s pack stronger than ever, with the threat of all-out war on the horizon.

The return of Crystal Reed for Teen Wolf: The Movie is about to be very interesting, given that her beloved character Allison Argent died in the third season.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Tyler Posey shared that he was very excited to play an older Scott McCall.
He shared, “I think what excites me the most is watching them grow old. We were in high school for what felt like 10 years. I’m excited to watch them grow old and get out of high school. High school was such a character in itself on the show, so I’m excited to see how it’s going to go without that kind of character from a school involved. It’ll be interesting.
Melissa Ponzio who played Melissa McCall in Teen Wolf took to Instagram to share her excitement, using the hashtag #ThePackIsBACK.
Alongside a photo from the official Paramount+ announcement, Ponzio wrote, “YO!!!!!! #TeenWolfMovie you guys!!! You heard it here first, and when I say first, i don’t mean the first BUT AGAIN!!! & Crew are very happy to be back together and we are fully aware that the main reason is your continued support and love for #BeaconHills and beyond… We let’s get to work and see you later this year on #ParamonutPlus… I’ll be sure to post pictures of BTS ASAP. #ThePackIsBACK.”
Sprayberry who played Liam also shared the same image on his Instagram, with the caption: “Pack is back for the #TeenWolfMovie, and so am I. See you on #ParamountPlus later this year!!”
No release date for the film has yet been announced.
Meanwhile, fans shared their sadness online about the absence of O’Brien, Cho and Hoechlin.
One fan tweeted: “so no thiam???? and no stiles???? no Kira but somehow Allison will be there????? so i don’t like the idea for this teenage wolf movie.”
A second fan added, “I don’t know how I feel about Teen Wolf: The Movie without Dylan O’Brien. Stiles Stilinski was the heart of the show and Season 6B really struggled without him.
A third fan added: “IF STILES IS NOT INTO IT…I’m not saying I won’t watch but I will be very very upset.”
