MTV renews werewolf drama 'Teen Wolf' for a second season
Let the moonlight howling continue! "Teen Wolf" will return to MTV for a second season in 2012.
The network announced Wednesday that it will be picking up 12 more episodes of the steamy drama -- a remake of the classic '80s film -- starring Tyler Posey as newly bitten werewolf Scott McCall.
"We're incredibly proud of this show," David Janollari, head of MTV's programming, said in a statement. "Executive producer Jeff Davis has brought an exciting, cinematic story to life with a breakout young cast who our audience has wildly embraced. Picking up 'Teen Wolf' for a second season marks another step towards the further diversification of our schedule, with this big, bold, entertaining scripted series."
The show premiered following the MTV Movie Awards last month to decent ratings culled from its lead-in viewers. With an average of 1.7 million weekly viewers, the breakout series has become MTV's highest-rated new series of 2010 and 2011, according to the network. Take that, guidos and teen moms...
On Monday, Scott will face his second full moon as a werewolf with best friend Stiles (Dylan O'Brien) while his romance with the new girl in town takes a hit.
The question is, how will the lupine drama fare with the glut of supernatural programming hitting the tube?
