Paramount+ has confirmed that Superman & Lois star Tyler Hoechlin has finalized negotiations for his return as Derek Hale in the forthcoming Teen Wolf The Movie.
In the original MTV series, Derek was introduced as a mentor to Tyler Posey’s Scott. However, due to Derek’s immoral choices as an Alpha, his relationship with Scott becomes strained. Despite this, he continues to serve as an ally to Scott during the later seasons.
Hoechlin will be joining returning cast members Posey, Holland Roden, Shelley Hennig, Crystal Reed, Orny Adams, Linden Ashby, JR Bourne, Colton Haynes, Ryan Kelley, Melissa Ponzio, Ian Bohen, Vince Mattis, Nobi Nakanishi, Khylin Rhambo, Amy Workman and Dylan Sprayberry. The only ones not included in the film are fan-favorite Dylan O’Brien and Arden Cho.
Teen Wolf The Movie hails from series creator Jeff Davis, MTV Entertainment Studios, and MGM’s Orion Television. It is set to make its debut sometime this year.
“In the Paramount+ film, a full moon rises in Beacon Hills, and with it, a terrifying evil has emerged,” reads the synopsis. “The wolves are howling once again, calling for the return of Banshees, Werecoyotes, Hellhounds, Kitsunes, and every other shapeshifter in the night. But only a Werewolf like Scott McCall, no longer a teenager yet still an Alpha, can gather both new allies and reunite trusted friends to fight back against what could be the most powerful and deadliest enemy they’ve ever faced.”
Loosely based on the 1985 Michael J. Fox-led coming-of-age film, Teen Wolf followed the story of a social outcast high-school student named Scott McCall (Posey), who is suddenly bitten by a werewolf the night before sophomore year. The series ran on-air for six seasons from 2011-2017.
