Teen Wolf revolves around Scott McCall, a high school student living in the fictional California town of Beacon Hills. Scott becomes the eponymous teenage werewolf of the series after he is bitten by an alpha werewolf the night before his second year of high school, drastically changing his once-ordinary life. The bite forces him to balance his new identity with his day-to-day teenage life and eventually help protect his hometown, which he learns is a beacon for supernatural activity.
The main reason why Teen Wolf got canceled was MTV’s shift away from scripted shows and back towards its roots of music and unscripted content.
Assuming that Teen Wolf season 7 is ordered and does in fact happen, it’s going to be a while before fans would see any episodes. We’re talking about a major revival here, so it’s going to take a lot of time to make it all happen.So, for now, Teen Wolf season 7 likely wouldn’t be released until, at the earliest, 2023.
