MTV has released the trailer for its reboot of the ’80s hit comedy Teen Wolf. Instead of engaging in campy comedy, MTV is going for an edgy series, hoping to bring in fans of two other supernatural favorites.
“When I first talked to MTV about it, I said what if we do it like The Lost Boys with kind of the pace and fun of Buffy,” said executive producer Jeff Davis to EW in February. “We’ve had comparisons to Vampire Diaries. That’s a very brooding melodrama. This exists far closer to Buffy.”
Official synopsis: Scott was just a regular guy until one bite changed his life forever. Now he struggles to understand who he is and what he might become. Is he more wolf than human – or is it the other way around? Whichever it is, it’s not going to be easy. Scott will try to control his urges, but mostly he’s scared that it’s his urges that could end up controlling him.
TEEN WOLF is the story of Scott as he tries to walk the line between what he wants and what he can’t help from wanting. Will the bite end up being a gift? Or will it be a curse? And what will it all mean for his relationship with Allison – the girl he can’t get enough of? Only time will tell if he should embrace his newfound powers, or if he should fear them.
