That commissioning of 24 new episodes represents double the order of either of the show’s first two runs, while the third-season pick-up marks a first for any scripted MTV primetime series (pretending for a moment that the Jersey goons aren’t working off a script, albeit one written in crayon).
“Teen Wolf represents a terrific foray into the scripted world for the millennial MTV audience, and marks tremendous success in the continued diversification of our schedule,” MTV programming boss David Janollari said in announcing the Season 3 order. “Renewing the show for a third season celebrates the creative vision of executive producer Jeff Davis and the remarkable talent of the cast who bring this bona fide fan favorite to life.”
Season 3 will be shot in Los Angeles versus Atlanta, where the first two cycles called home.
Teen Wolf fans, are you howling over the big vote of confidence in Scott, Lydia et al?
