Tyler Posey plays a teenager who gets bitten by a wolf while going through the wood at night while Crystal Reed plays a girl who is complicatedly linked to him.
MTV shows it through the trailer that their take of "Teen Wolf" won't be as cheesy and hairy as the 1985 movie starring Michael J. Fox. The newly-released footage reveals a lot of details including how Tyler Posey's Scott McCall turns into the creature, who the villains are and what are his dilemmas in turning into the beast.
The network described the series as a "sexy thriller set against the drama of high school life with a forbidden, romantic love story at its core." Liz Gateley, MTV Senior Vice President of Series Development said, "We loved the conceit of the original film and knew the title had a great hook. The creative challenge was to take that title and reinvent it as a horror series for the MTV audience. It combines romance and high school to make 'Teen Wolf' the perfect thriller for MTV."
Set to premiere early next year, "Teen Wolf" is supported as well by Dylan O'Brien as Scott's best friend 'Stiles', Crystal Reed as the mysterious new girl in town, 'Allison', and Tyler Hoechlin as the older and possibly quite dangerous werewolf, 'Derek Hale'.
