What’s in three days, you ask? The premiere of MTV’s highly-anticipated reboot of the ’80s classic “Teen Wolf.” (Van-surfing and basketball not included.)
MTV has released the first eight minutes of the premiere episode, in which we meet two of the show’s characters — Scott (Tyler Posey) and Stiles (Dylan O’Brien), who fans of the original movie may remember. This time around, Scott is a lacrosse player with asthma and Stiles, well, he’s still a goof and just as much fun. Anyone else getting a Seth Cohen vibe? No, just us? OK, moving on.
So, what do we learn from the eight minute preview? This isn’t your parents’ “Teen Wolf ” — This version is much darker and sleeker and the kids are much more morbid. (Seriously — they head into the woods to look for the other half of a dead girl’s body. Spoiler Alert! Scott finds it.) We also see the wolf bite Scott, which is a pretty big departure from the original movie (the wolf curse was genetic).
“Teen Wolf” premieres Sunday, June 5, at 11 p.m., right after the MTV Movie Awards before moving to its regular time slot the following night — Mondays at 10 p.m.
Based on the first eight minutes, we’ll definitely be checking “Teen Wolf” out on Sunday. Will you, Zappers?
