Teen Wolf Sea­son 3 Mon­days (from 29 May) SABC2 (*192) 23:00

Were­wolf Scott (Tyler Posey) and his friends on Teen Wolf (20112017) will have an es­pe­cially tough time in sea­son 3. Sea­sons 1 and 2 had 12 episodes, while this one has 24. “It’s bro­ken into 3A and 3B in which we tell dif­fer­ent sto­ries,” ex­plains se­ries cre­ator Jeff Davis. “It’s a first for us but it gives enough room to in­tro­duce a num­ber of char­ac­ters.” And it’s not just su­per-strong Al­phas (pack lead­ers) that the teen wolves have to deal with – they’re fac­ing off against crea­tures from mythol­ogy!

AN AL­PHA TALE

The first part of the sea­son deals with a su­per pack of Al­phas who come to Bea­con Hills to kill Scott be­cause he’s a mag­i­cal Al­pha were­wolf. “In their hunt for Scott and try­ing to con­vert him for their pack, they kill off most of the were­wolves that were made in

sea­son 2,” says Tyler. Scott and his pal Stiles Stilin­ski (Dy­lan O’Brien) learn that their new teacher Jennifer Blake (Ha­ley Webb) is The Darach, a mon­ster re­spon­si­ble for a string of rit­u­al­is­tic mur­ders. She won’t be easy to take down, but that’s why Scott’s brought in re-in­force­ments. Say hello to twin wolves Ethan and Ai­den (Char­lie and Max Carver, Porter and Pre­ston in Des­per­ate Housewives, 2004-2012) who have a party trick: they can morph into one big, mean mega were­wolf!

DARK MAGIC

The sec­ond half of the sea­son isn’t go­ing to be fun for goofy Stiles. He turns scary from episode 13 (21 Au­gust) when he’s pos­sessed by an­cient Ja­panese spirit The Nog­it­sune. Scott teams up with new­comer stu­dent Kira Yukimura (Ar­den Cho) and her mom Noshiko (Tam­lyn Tomita) who sum­mon de­mon nin­jas called The Onis. But some­one im­por­tant will die this sea­son…
