Dorky Stiles Stilin­ski (Dy­lan O’Brien) is gone in Teen Wolf (2001- cur­rent), erased from mem­ory and ex­is­tence by the Ghost Rid­ers. They are the creepy new threat who’ve rolled into Bea­con Hills in the 20- episode fi­nal sea­son and the horse-rid­ing, mummy-look­ing cow­boys are ready to take down the wolves and other su­pernat­u­ral town cit­i­zens. “‘Grab­bing’ souls wipes that per­son from ex­is­tence and we wanted to do some­thing fright­en­ing but dif­fer­ent for sea­son 6,” ex­plains series cre­ator Jeff Davis. “What’s scarier than death? Be­ing for­got­ten!”


The Ghost Rid­ers aren’t the only threat for al­phamale were­wolf Scott McCall ( Tyler Posey), his wolf pack and their su­pernat­u­ral friends. Their physics teacher Mr Dou­glas (Pete Ploszek) turns out to be a su­per Nazi Al­pha male who has a habit of eat­ing a part of his vic­tims’ brains. “The first 10 episodes of the sea­son deal with the Ghost Rid­ers and the Nazi Al­pha male,” says Jeff. Then the sec­ond part in­tro­duces some­thing much scarier: a third threat. “In terms of hor­ror and su­pernat­u­ral in­spired by the books of [US au­thor] HP Love­craft [from the early 1900s], it’s a new kind of hor­ror. We have some of our gross­est stuff com­ing,” adds Jeff.


SA ac­tress Si­bongile Mlambo (Eme in Cape Town-filmed pi­rate drama Black Sails, 2014- cur­rent) is join­ing as new high school teacher Tamora Mon­roe. While the show hasn’t re­vealed much, Jeff says that “what I can tell you is that Tamora is both an an­tag­o­nist and a sym­pa­thetic char­ac­ter”.


The fi­nal episode, which should air in early 2018, will fea­ture fa­mil­iar Teen Wolf faces. “I have a long list I’ve reached out to,” Jeff con­firms. A fan-favourite who’s highly likely to re­turn is Tyler Hoech­lin (Su­per­man in scifi show Su­per­girl, 2015- cur­rent), who played al­pha male Derek Hale un­til leav­ing at the end of sea­son 4.
