Loosely based on the 1985 film of the same name, the television show explored the life of teenager Scott McCall (Tyler Posey), who is transformed into a werewolf after being bitten by an alpha. Alerted to the other supernatural threats lurking in his hometown of Beacon Hills, he quickly becomes the town’s savior.
Scott was joined by his best friend Stiles Stilinski (Dylan O’Brien), romantic interest Allison Argent (Crystal Reed), friends Lydia Martin (Holland Roden) and Malia Tate (Shelley Hennig), along with many others.
the revival will continue after a time jump with scott (posey) now in his 30s, older than posey in real life.
However, while the film will star most of the original characters, one fan-favorite cast member will not be returning for the new film.
creator jeff davis has opened up about the absence of series alumnus dylan o’brien’s character style, as well as his romance with lydia, which began to blossom at the end of season 6.
“The movie answers the question of what happened to ‘Stydia,’ so you’ll have to see it,” Jeff told Entertainment Weekly.
“and stiles, even though he’s not in the movie, he’s always present in the movie. all these characters leave an influence, so there’s no way we could have done it without mentioning him or at least referencing him, but all the other characters are there too. you’ll see some familiar faces.”

“It feels fortuitous that the show is back right now,” he said. “We got away enough to appreciate and miss it. The show consumed our lives for 10 years, and we were constantly busy filming it. So, I think we all needed a break. It’s just special, giving it back to the whole world. I think this amount of time was perfect. Any longer, people would have forgotten about the show.

It was the first thing I did and a lot of people there are very dear to me. It was something I was trying to make it work, but it all happened so fast. We didn’t.” didn’t really know what was going on and just kind of threw it at us, which is okay because we all love the show. we were trying to figure it out.”
As detailed above, Dylan O’Brien will not reprise his role as Stiles, and neither will Cody Christian, who played Theo Raeken in seasons five and six.

Also, amy lin workman has joined the cast as hikari zhang.
