I have added two scans of Teen Wolf featured in the latest issue of TV Guide Magazine to the gallery.
In four seasons, Teen Wolf has morphed from a guilty pleasure into a bloody thrill ride, making teen-scene royalty out of leads Tyler Posey (as titular teen wolf Scott McCall) and Dylan O’Brien (as his trusted friend Stiles). Offscreen, the 22-year-old actors are real-life pals who display an easy rapport despite some philosophical differences on things like sports and tattoos.
EW visited the show’s Los Angeles set recently for scoop on the sexiest, scariest, most bonkers show on MTV. Check out the extended interview below:
EW: This year, you premiered the season while still working on it. Did that throw you off to watch the premiere then come to work?
TYLER POSEY: It caught me completely off guard. We never really had a season start filming as we’re shooting it. It’s hard to be focused on both, but it’s exciting. The next day, I’ll always wake up to a text from Dylan like, ‘The episode was great, you kicked ass.’”
DYLAN O’BRIEN: I watched it at like 3:30 in the morning.
Is that your preferred viewing experience?
O’BRIEN: Sometimes that’s how it has to be. We used to do viewing parties all the time. This is something we’re not used to, how the show just comes out while we’re working. But I was stoked to go home and watch the episode. I had adrenaline.
As you near the end of season four, do you ever think back to how much Teen Wolf has changed since that first year?
POSEY: All the time. So much of this show is Dylan and me and our relationship, and the thing that blows my mind is how young I felt when we first started hanging out.
O’BRIEN: And at such a transitional point in our lives, too. We were 18, and it’s only been four years, but I feel like for us that’s a lot longer of a four years than for anyone else.
POSEY: We’ve gone through some really cool stuff with each other.
Do you remember the screen test?
POSEY: That’s where we first really hit it off.
O’BRIEN: I’ll never forget that.
What was your first impression of each other?
POSEY: You go first.
O’BRIEN: Well, the first thing I remember about Tyler… He walked in and asked immediately where the bathroom was. And I remember just thinking, “Wow, he’s really comfortable. That’s so badass.” And then we started talking immediately, because the test was a disaster. It took seven and a half hours.
POSEY: It took a long time.
O’BRIEN: And at one point, they let us go across the street to have lunch because they were still working things out.
Was it just the two of you all seven hours?
POSEY: We never actually auditioned with each other.
O’BRIEN: We never even went in the room together. I didn’t go in the room with anyone.
POSEY: That’s because they knew. They knew, this guy, right here.
Tyler, what was your first impression of Dylan?
POSEY: At this point, I [had been] acting for, like, 12 years, and I never really liked going to auditions because the kids were lame. When I saw Dylan, he had on a DVS shirt, which is a skateboard company, and I grew up skateboarding. I immediately thought, “Okay, this dude seems cool.” And then, I don’t remember how we started talking…
O’BRIEN: We talked about our bands.
POSEY: Oh, right! We were both in bands.
Great news! The season finale of Teen Wolf on September 8th will be extended and run for 1 hour and 15 minutes!
#TeenWolf fans, cool news: Jeff Davis just told me the Sept. 8 season finale is super-sized! It will run 1 hour and 15 minutes!

Adam: I still can’t believe Meredith is the benefactor on Teen Wolf!
Yeah, neither can we. In fact, Teen Wolf star Arden Cho didn’t even see that big twist coming all season long! “We were all making bets all season long trying to figure out who the benefactor is and we were all wrong,” Cho tells me. “I thought that it was going to be Argent because he just lost his daughter, he’s lost his entire family and things are going crazy so he might want to put an end to everything supernatural but clearly I was wrong.” And if you think the benefector was the biggest reveal of the season, prepare yourself for one crazy finale. “There are some twists still coming,” Cho teased. “People are going to cry. It’s going to be sad. There are going to be a lot of unexpected twists and I think people are going to be very surprised.” Let’s just hope we’re not going to have to say goodbye to any more fan-favorite characters, my heart just cannot take any more pain.
