Teen Wolf Crystal Reed Returning

Teen Wolf: Crystal Reed Returning — But She's Not Playing Allison

Following JR Bourne’s return to Beacon Hills this week, Teen Wolf is welcoming back another fan-favorite actor in Season 5B — but this one comes with a big twist.

Crystal Reed — who portrayed Allison Argent, before the character’s untimely death in Season 3 — will return to the MTV drama in the coming weeks, though she won’t be playing the former love of Scott McCall’s life.

BuzzFeed reports that Reed will guest-star in the Feb. 23 episode, “The Maid of Gévaudan,” which takes viewers back to 1700s France. There, we’ll meet Marie-Jeanne Valet, one of the earliest members of the Argent family line — played by Reed.

Reed tweeted her excitement about getting back to her roots, along with a photo of her new character:
