Tyler Posey lives to howl another day…
MTV has renewed Teen Wolf, starring the 23-year-old half-Mexican American actor, for a sixth season.
During the show’s Comic Con panel, series creator Jeff Davis was visibly elated by the show’s success, telling the crowd of dedicated fans that “as long as you keep watching, we’ll probably get to keep making it. So thank you.”
Loosley based on the 1985 film starring Michael J. Fox, Teen Wolf debuted on MTV in 2011 and since then has been a ratings success for the network.
During the panel, Davis claimed that the popularity of the show on platforms beyond initial television broadcasts dramatically increase viewership numbers beyond standard ratings, in some cases as high as 8 million viewers for some episodes.
The show’s fifth season began June 29.
