'Teen Wolf' post-mortem: Jeff Davis on those finale twists, season 5

What’s a trip to Mexico without a few berserkers, one very angry werejaguar, and a near-death experience, right? That’s the attitude Teen Wolf took in its season 4 finale, when nearly everyone headed down to Mexico to save Scott from Kate, himself, and then from Peter. One hour later, we’d said (hopefully a temporary) goodbye to Chris Argent, a hello to a more powerful version of Derek, an Eichen House goodbye to Peter, and a maybe-see-you-later to Kate. As for the others, Kira had received her first tail, Jordan Parrish was about to learn a lot more about himself, and Liam had gained a little control over his life.

We chatted with Teen Wolf showrunner, Jeff Davis, about the action-packed hour, the thought behind all the twists, and where the show will go in season 5. (Hint: It involves the desert.)

Tyler Posey and Dylan O'Brien of 'Teen Wolf' on fans, first impressions

In four seasons, Teen Wolf has morphed from a guilty pleasure into a bloody thrill ride, making teen-scene royalty out of leads Tyler Posey (as titular teen wolf Scott McCall) and Dylan O’Brien (as his trusted friend Stiles). Offscreen, the 22-year-old actors are real-life pals who display an easy rapport despite some philosophical differences on things like sports and tattoos.

EW visited the show’s Los Angeles set recently for scoop on the sexiest, scariest, most bonkers show on MTV. Check out the extended interview below:

EW: This year, you premiered the season while still working on it. Did that throw you off to watch the premiere then come to work?
TYLER POSEY: It caught me completely off guard. We never really had a season start filming as we’re shooting it. It’s hard to be focused on both, but it’s exciting. The next day, I’ll always wake up to a text from Dylan like, ‘The episode was great, you kicked ass.’”
DYLAN O’BRIEN: I watched it at like 3:30 in the morning. READ FULL STORY

'Arrow' star Bex Taylor-Klaus and others join MTV's 'Scream'

MTV’s Scream has been in the making for a while. It was first announced that the show had a pilot order in May of 2013, but it wasn’t until more than a year later that it finally found its cast and director. And now, there’s been a change to that cast.

EW has confirmed that Bex Taylor-Klaus, who plays Sin on The CW’s Arrow, will replace Amy Forsyth in the lead role of Audrey Jensen, who was originally described as “the daughter of a Lutheran pastor” and “an artsy loner who aspired to be a filmmaker.” There’s no word yet on why Forsyth left the television remake.

In additional casting news, the show has added Bobby Campo, Connor Weil, and Joel Gretsch. Campo will play Seth Branson, “the hot English teacher at Lakewood High” who’s “got an easy charm and is clearly one of the ‘cool’ teachers, who can go with it if a lesson plan gets a little off-track.” Weil will take on the role of Will Belmont, “an all-American high school basketball player who adores his girlfriend, Emma.” As for Gretsch, he’ll play Sheriff Clark Hudson, “good guy and good Sheriff and father to Kieran (Amadeus Serafini).”

'Teen Wolf': Why the Benefactor's identity goes back to season one

As if the fourth season of Teen Wolf weren’t already the show’s most dangerous (do you even have nails left to bite at this point?), the stakes are getting even higher.

On tonight’s episode “Time of Death,” there’s a little too much time spent around dead bodies—especially one who looks quite a bit like Scott (Tyler Posey). But that’s to be expected, since Argent (JR Bourne), Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) and Scott have a plan to draw out the Benefactor, the mysterious, money-dishing, assassin-hiring enigma who has put all of Beacon Hills’ supernatural beings on high alert. The clock is ticking, but whenever there’s a plan on Teen Wolf, there’s always something interfering—and as usual it’s Kate, the werejaguar who just won’t die. READ FULL STORY

In addition, Jamie Travis (Faking It) will direct the pilot.

'Teen Wolf' at Comic Con: MTV hit renewed for fifth season with 'a lot of decision making' in the future

Herds of screaming girls and men proudly wearing “Part Wolf” shirts howled like crazy for Tyler Posey, Dylan O’Brien, and other cast members of Teen Wolf during the supernatural hit’s Comic-Con panel this year. Though the cast was at times slightly distracted by their own image on the large video screens surrounding them—and their own poop jokes—the MTV stars provided some good scoop about the show’s current fourth season and future alongside series executive producer Jeff Davis. Well, that was after Posey decided to cartwheel onto the stage. “I think I broke my toe,” he admitted. Here are some highlights: READ FULL STORY

'Finding Carter' ups the ante (and the squirm factor) in new clip

The first few episodes of MTV’s latest scripted series packed a season’s worth of intrigue into two short hours—and from the looks of this exclusive peek at episode 3, things won’t be slowing down anytime soon.

The following two minutes contain a cute bad boy teaching a 12-year-old how to roll a joint—”Out there in the real world, this is considered a basic life skill!”—an implied drug deal, a dramatic confrontation, and a steamy makeout session between two teenagers… that happens in front of one of their parents. And all of her new friends. And the guy who’s secretly in love with her. In short: Watch out, DegrassiFinding Carter‘s coming for you. READ FULL STORY

Exclusive: Watch the extended trailer for MTV's controversial theme park dramedy 'Happyland'

Back in October, MTV ordered two new comedy pilots: the pseudo-lesbian high school series Faking It, which earned a second season renewal in June, and Happyland, a soapy teen dramedy that dives into the not-so-glamorous behind-the-scenes reality of a popular theme park.

Set to premiere on September 30, Happyland stars Bianca Santos (of The Fosters) as Lucy, a cynical employee and daughter to the park’s perfect princess Elena (Camille Guaty). Desperate to escape the park’s brand of manufactured happiness, Lucy rethinks her desire to flee after the arrival of a new staff member—the son (Awkward’s Shane Harper) of Happyland’s new owner—who brings a scandalous secret with him. (Spoiler: The, er, family-unfriendly twist caused quite a stir at the TCA Press Tour earlier Friday.)

Check out the extended trailer for Happyland, which was created by Ben Epstein and includes uber-producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan among the EP team. READ FULL STORY

'Finding Carter' is, improbably, a subtle show about kidnapping

There’s something appealingly retro about MTV’s latest scripted offering—and not just because Finding Carter bears a striking resemblance to Caroline B. Cooney’s beloved 1990 novel The Face on the Milk Carton. (You may know it better as the inspiration for a TV movie that aired in 1995).

These days, shows for and about teenagers tend to fall into one of two categories: the Ryan Murphy-esque dramedy (high-energy, soaked with pop culture references, alternating wildly between irony and sincerity; see MTV’s own Faking It or Awkward. for examples), or the Gossip Girl-ian glitzy melodrama (think privileged kids who don’t act like actual teenagers, getting into trouble and sleeping with each other; Pretty Little Liars is the current standard bearer). The pilot episode of Finding Carter, though, is neither self-consciously hip nor glamorously soapy; its dialogue is straightforward, its dramatic elements are understated, and its characters are good looking in a low-key way rather than being regulation CW hotties. I’d compare the result to ABC Family’s recent rash of family dramas (Switched at Birth, The Fosters), but they’re a little more after-school-special-y than Carter; more than anything, actually, the new show resembles an early ’00s teen drama, like South of Nowhere or Caitlin’s Way. (The comparison makes sense if you’ve heard of either of those shows, I swear.)

Which is a good thing. Carter‘s relatively down-to-earth tone—plus a strong, grounded performance by Kathryn Prescott—gives the show a sense of authenticity that helps mitigate its sudsier elements. READ FULL STORY
