When is the Teen Wolf: The Movie release date?

Teen Wolf: The Movie will be released on Thursday January 26th 2023.

At the start of December, Teen Wolf's official Twitter account unveiled the release date for the movie alongside a new poster for the film. They wrote: "The pack is back in Teen Wolf: The Movie, streaming January 26 exclusively on @ParamountPlus. #TeenWolfMovie".

The poster stars Tyler Posey as Scott McCall front and centre with his castmates surrounding him.

Who is in the Teen Wolf: The Movie cast?

Fans can rest assured that the majority of the original Teen Wolf cast will be reprising their roles in the film. Even the one and only Crystal Reed will be back from the dead as everyone's fave Allison Argent. With that in mind, here is the full cast list:

  • Tyler Posey - Scott McCall
  • Crystal Reed - Allison Argent
  • Tyler Hoechlin - Derek Hale
  • Holland Roden - Lydia Martin
  • Colton Haynes - Jackson Whittemore
  • Shelley Hennig - Malia Tate
  • Dylan Sprayberry - Liam Dunbar
  • Linden Ashby - Noah Stillinski
  • Melissa Ponzio - Melissa McCall
  • JR Bourne - Chris Argent
  • Khylin Rhambo - Mason Hewitt
  • Orny Adams - Bobby Finstock
  • Seth Gilliam - Alan Deaton
  • Ryan Kelley - Jordan Parrish
  • Ian Bohen - Peter Hale
  • Vince Mattis - Eli Hale
  • Amy Lin Workman - Hikari Zhang
  • Nobi Nakanishi - Deputy Ishida
  • John Posey - Conrad Fenris
  • L. B. Fisher - Coach Hogan

Notable omissions include Arden Cho as Kira Yukimura and Cody Christian as Theo. After the film was announced, Deadline reported that Arden Cho, the only actress of colour among Teen Wolf's four female series regular cast members, would not be reprising her role as Kira because she was offered half the salary of her other female counterparts.

Meanwhile, Cody Christian was unable to reprise the role of Theo due to a scheduling conflict. He currently stars in The CW show All American. Taking to Instagram, Cody wrote: "Although the full moon and our schedules didn’t align this time, I’m excited to see what’s next in the Teen Wolf universe."

Dylan O'Brien will also not be returning as Stiles Stilinski.

Is Dylan O'Brien in Teen Wolf: The Movie?

Unfortunately, Dylan O'Brien will not be reprising the role of Stiles Stilinski in Teen Wolf: The Movie. Explaining his decision to Variety, Dylan said: "It was a difficult decision. A lot went into it. The show couldn’t be more dear to me. It was the first thing I ever did and so many people there are extremely dear to me."

Dylan then continued: "It was something I was trying to make work but it all happened very fast. We didn’t really know that it was happening and they kind of just threw it at us a little bit, which is fine because we all love the show. We were trying to figure it out."

He ended by saying: "Ultimately, I just decided it was left in a really good place for me and I still want to leave it there. I wish them well and I’m going to watch it the first night it comes out. I hope it fucking kicks ass, but I’m not going to be in it."

While Dylan won't be in the film, Stiles will still be involved. Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis told Collider: "We can’t do the movie without paying tribute to the character Stiles. So he comes up in more than one situation."

He ended by teasing: "There’s a big storyline with Lydia actually, that the fans can look forward to that has to do with their relationship."

What will Teen Wolf: The Movie be about?

As it stands, Paramount are yet to reveal many Teen Wolf plot details outside of the official synopsis. As mentioned above, the film bio reads: "A full moon rises in Beacon Hills, and with it a terrifying evil has emerged. The wolves are howling once again, calling for the return of Banshees, Werecoyotes, Hellhounds, Kitsunes, and every other shapeshifter in the night."

It continues: "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."

Elsewhere, we know that Allison is back from the dead, so it seems likely that the plot will explain who she's returned. We also imagine that Scott and Allison will officially get back together but nothing has been confirmed just yet.

How do I watch Teen Wolf: The Movie?

Teen Wolf: The Movie is a Paramount production and it will be available to stream exclusively on Paramount+. Taking this into consideration, you will need a Paramount+ account to watch it.
