MTV announced today that production has begun in Atlanta on the second season of its critically acclaimed series “Teen Wolf.” The fictional Beacon Hills will also have four new faces, with Michael Hogan, Stephen Lunsford, Daniel Sharman and a yet-to-be-cast female character joining the show. All first season series regulars, including Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed, Dylan O’Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, Holland Roden and Colton Haynes, will be reprising their roles. The highly anticipated second season of this young, sexy reinvention of the classic werewolf tale will return Summer 2012 on MTV.
Michael Hogan (“Battlestar Galactica”) will play the role of Gerard, Allison’s grandfather. A man whose age has made him more lethal, he’ll begin to sway Allison closer and closer toward the family’s unique business of hunting werewolves. Stephen Lunsford (“Private Practice”) has been cast as Matt, a handsome teen with a knack for photography and whose initial crush on Allison will turn into real competition for Scott when the couple begins to grow apart under new tensions. Daniel Sharman (“Immortals”) will play Isaac, a troubled young high schooler on the lacrosse team who will be given a unique gift by the new Alpha, Derek. His choices in how he uses that gift may prove far less noble than expected, however.
The first season of “Teen Wolf” averaged a 1.5 P12-34 rating, more than doubling its time period average from the year prior, with more than 1.7 million viewers tuning in each week. The gripping season finale delivered a series-high 1.9 P12-34 rating and 2.1 million total viewers.
“Teen Wolf” stars Tyler Posey as Scott McCall, Crystal Reed as Allison Argent, Dylan O’Brien as Stiles, Tyler Hoechlin as Derek Hale, Holland Roden as Lydia Martin, and Colton Haynes as Jackson Whittemore.
“Teen Wolf” was developed by Jeff Davis (creator, “Criminal Minds”) who also serves as executive producer. Additional executive producers include Marty Adelstein (“Prison Break”), René Echevarria (“Medium,” “Castle”), Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley. Russell Mulcahy (“Highlander,” “Resident Evil: Extinction”) is co-executive producer. The pilot was written by Jeff Davis and Jeph Loeb & Matthew Weisman and directed by Russell Mulcahy.
