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.
Tyler Posey is still the wolf of MTV…
The cable network has renewed its hit series Teen Wolf, starring the 22-year-old half-Mexican actor, for a fifth season.
The upcoming 20-episode season will be split in two parts, similar to the way the supernatural high-school series aired in Season 3, which also was super-sized (24 episodes).
Seasons 1, 2 and 4 each have consisted of 12 episodes running continuously.
Based on the Michael J. Fox-starring MGM movie, Teen Wolf was developed by Jeff Davis. The show has become a hit online, where fan tweets about it routinely put it in the Weekly Top 10 of Nielsen’s Twitter TV ratings, one of only two or three scripted shows to grab one of those spots regularly.
Posey stars as Scott McCall, the title teen werewolf character.
Ana Nogueira is teaming up with Michael J. Fox…
The Latina actress has joined the cast of Fox’s NBC series, which has a 22-episode order for a fall 2013 lunch.
From Sony Pictures Television and Will Gluck, the single-camera comedy is inspired by Fox’s real life and stars him as Mike Burnaby, a husband and father of three in New York City juggling the challenges of family and career while dealing with Parkinson’s disease.
A former lead anchor for a local NY station, Mike decides to go back to work after Parkinson’s forced him to take time off.
Nogueira will portray Kay, Mike’s very young, very sweet, hard-working but very emotional segment producer.
Nogueira previously co-starred in the Fox comedy pilot El Jefe last season.
