After the season 5 premiere, it’s clear that Allison Argent is dearly missed — and the idea of her returning isn’t actually out of the picture. Here’s what Jeff Davis told us!
When Lydia (Holland Roden) said that Allison (Crystal Reed) “still is” with them on the premiere of Teen Wolf, the fans totally freaked out hoping that someway, somehow this could mean a return is coming on the Allison front. That, combined with the serious emotions from Scott (Tyler Posey) writing her initials, we had all sorts of feelings and we had to know — is there a possible way in this world that Allison could come back?
“I can’t commit to anything, but somedays we’re surprised by our ideas in thinking, ‘oh, that’d be good?’ We wonder,” EP Jeff Davis told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. The rumors began swirling back in March, when she walked the carpet before the Teen Wolf panel at PaleyFest in LA. However, Jeff does have second thoughts. “Part of what we’re thinking is to stay true, stay committed to our narrative decision. Well she’s dead, we need to commit to that.” This is true — they did kill off Allison in season 3, but fans were totally crushed. So, maybe she could somehow recover from that sword to the stomach? Eh, maybe not.
“Most of the time when we bring back people it’s villains,” Jeff added. “It’s harder to bring back heroes. It’s always easier to bring back villains because they come back to torture you more.” Well, as much as we’d love to see some villains returns, Jeff didn’t offer any other surprise returns teases. Even though Colton Haynes is now off Arrow, all he had to say about him making a Teen Wolf cameo was “we’ll see,” so I guess we’ll have to wait.
Luckily, for now, we have ton of hotties to hold us over, including a new one: Cody Christian. “New people coming in always shifts character relationship dynamic,” Jeff said. “It’s hard when you lose actors and you bring in news ones and you’re hoping they can fill the space that has been vacated and he does it really well. Cody fit in perfectly with the cast, and he’s also a really good actor, and incredibly good looking too. We have this very strick guidelines of who comes on the show, must be incredibly good looking.”
Seriously though, everyone that steps onto the Teen Wolf set is hot, amiright?! Do you guys want to see Allison return? Do you think it’s possible? Let us know.
