Need to know what’s coming next after that incredible season 6 premiere of ‘Teen Wolf’? HollywoodLife.com chatted EXCLUSIVELY with EP Jeff Davis about what that final premiere moment means for Stiles and more. Plus, what’s Dylan O’Brien’s status with the show?
What made you decide that Lydia was going to be the one who would be with Stiles before he was taken?
In other seasons, we’ve really explored Scott and Stiles’ friendship, we’ve explored Stiles’ first real romance with Malia, and this was a great friendship — Stiles and Lydia — that’s growing into something more. We really felt like it was the time. We discussed this a lot in the writers’ room, and we felt like this was the time, this was the season, with our last 20 episodes to really go for things. We’re going for it!
Where have the Ghost Riders taken Stiles?
Stiles is definitely displaced. We came up with a really cool visual element to show that kind of displacement for the people who have been taken by the Wild Hunt and the Ghost Riders. You’ll see it in episode 5, but it allows this really cool visual for both the season and the climax of that story.
Peter and Stiles come face-to-face again in 6A. Are we going to see more familiar faces?
Yes. Hopefully more than one. We’re still — I’ve reached out to one or two people on my wish list to get back. We’ll see if we can make it happen.
What’s the dynamic going to be like between Stiles and Peter going forward?
They need to help each other. They need to get out. They essentially need to be remembered. They both realize they’ve bene forgotten and they no longer exist. There’s a very interesting scientific element to it that the younger characters sort of get into — Liam, Mason and Hayden. It’s in the fist few episodes, where it’s all within the realm of possible worlds. Can you be forgotten? Can your life divert into this one path as if you never existed? Stiles and Peter have to help each other. One of the things we were excited to explore again was Peter and Malia’s relationship. If Peter is forgotten as well, what happens when Malia forgets him? What kind of loss does she feel without him?
Can you say how much Dylan will be a part 6B?
I’m not talking too much about Dylan O’Brien’s schedule. It’s been a challenge so far. We’ll wait and see. Ask me in a couple of weeks.
