Get More: Casting News, Exclusive

Teen Wolf Season 3 Cast BarrowJust in case you were worried that the world of Teen Wolf might get a little too safe and secure, the MTV drama is throwing a new monster into the mix.

Doug Jones (HellboyFalling Skies) will appear this season as a “known killer” named Barrow, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Though other details about the mysterious murderer are scant, we know he’ll show up in Episode 15, which is titled “Galvanize” and which will air after the series returns from hiatus on Jan. 6.

Jones’  history of playing creepy characters includes TV’s The Outer LimitsThe Neighbors and Falling Skies — and Buffy fans will be psyched/spooked to know he played one of The Gentlemen in the Season 4 installment “Hush.” In addition to the Hellboy films, his film work includes Pan’s Labyrinth and Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

Teen Wolf‘s midseason finale airs Monday, Aug. 19 (10/9c).

Got theories on what brings Barrow to town? Shout ‘em out in the comments!

  • This is such cool news! Can’t wait to see if he’s a human or supernatural creature. With his credits, I’ll guess supernatural, but still. This is really awesome.

  • Doug Jones is one of the greatest unsung actors working in films today. His work is nothing short of amazing.

  • “Barrow” is a word for a tumulus, or a burial mound, typically ‘long barrows,’ which date from the Neolithic era.

    I’ll be interested to see if there’s a connection there.

    • Knowing how Jeff Davis writes, it will have a connection. Thanks for lookin’ that up!

  • As many a tw fan will do….barrow in old english means like a buriel mound or something like that…so we aren’t done with celtic mythology yet this might be some of the evil the teens accidentally release likely to stop the Darach. Or he is who the fbi is after since they are finally arriving in beacon hills after a year of requests. But galvinize leads me more to the first but he could be an Argent back up. The werewolf hunter community probably is getting concerned.

  • Just realized Doug will be reunited with Linden (aka Sheriff Stilinski). Too funny/amused by that. They both were in a movie called Night Angel 23 yrs ago.

  • Deaton said that Scott, Stiles, and Allison’s temporary sacrafices will give power to the Nematod or Nematon or whatever it’s called and that tree will act as a beacon (We really should have seen this coming, BEACON Hills!) to other supernatural beings. I bet Jones is one of them.

  • Pan’s Labyrinth is an amazing movie.

  • I love how Teen Wolf has realized that it could tell a lot of monster of the week stories very successfully, if only it had the mythology to back it up. The recent ‘Beacon Hills isn’t accidentally named that’ thing is basically the show’s way to create a hellmouth. ‘Motel California’ might have been a try-out episode for a more Buffy-esque approach to storytelling. Considering the positive response that episode got, I think that might be a smart move. I know I’d be absolutely thrilled to see them take that route.

  • Dare I hope this will be a recurring role?!

  • As was said before in this episode, I don’t know what’s going on… There are too many subplots and too much talking and showing fangs. Ever since they dumped Colton Haynes the show has started rushing toward a complete meltdown. No loving no normalness and really no real outcome of anything. The boys are confined to their clothes the girls are macho and mean as hell and the grownups (!) are talking like an episode of Downton Abbey stuck to their chairs. What gives?

    • Lol sorry to say but by the leaving of Colton Haynes i was sceptic first two. The season 2 finale was awsome with the coming to wolf. But… without Haynes and with the new story line i can only say 1 thing:

      Awsome work. Deucalion is a terrific role and the change scot made from season 2 till now is awsome.

      In other words: The leaving of Haynes made a change in script but only for the good.

  • As much as I love Teen Wolf’s shirtless scenes, I’m glad they cast actors not only based on their looks, One more reason to be excited on the next part of the season.
