Here We Are Now, Entertain Us.

Hey guys!

We are diving right in and taking a look at the series finale of Teen Wolf.

A little background doesn’t hurt though.

The show started back in 2011 and was about a teenage boy, Scott McCall (Tyler Posey), who gets bitten by a werewolf and with the help of his friend, Stiles (Dylan O’Brien), navigate the woes of high school and supernatural bullies all while keeping his secret.

The show ran for six seasons finally ending on September 24, 2017.

Samantha Highfill, ew.com, sits down with the creator to talk about the final episode. “This finale did feel different than most Teen Wolf finales. It was almost less conclusive… ‘That was very specific. We didn’t want a finale that said “the end.” We wanted it to be an “and the adventure continues…” I like imagining that they’re going off to continue the fight. I didn’t want to see an end where they all have children and they’re happy and at home. That felt anticlimactic to me.'”

Gabe Bergado, teenvogue.com, talks of the finale coming full circle for the series. “‘We had started breaking this story during the election, and I said to the writers [that] I had this idea to make Scott and the other supernaturals pariahs in Beacon Hills to cast them as the ‘other’ again, and to make the real enemy this season humanity and other people. And take an idea where Gerard comes in and takes advantage of that. So it’s definitely influenced by current events.’ By doing this, it brought the show full circle. For Jeff, the show has always been about the outsider and feeling like an outsider, so the division between humans and the supernaturals allowed them to make that theme meaningful for the characters.”

I didn’t start watching the show until a few months ago. I watched the entire thing on Amazon, just in time to watch the ending live with many other loyal fans. I only have one thing to say about it, I was not disappointed.

Here We Are Now, Entertain Us.

Hey guys!

Today we are taking a look at Dylan O’Brien as he gets ready to say goodbye to the show that launched his career and hello to being a new action hero.

Dylan O’Brien has played the character of Stiles, the best friend of newly bitten werewolf, Scoot McCall (Tyler Posey), on the hit MTV show Teen Wolf. Crystal Bell, mtv.com, sat down with O’Brien to discuss life without the show. “‘I’ll miss it dearly, always,’ he added. ‘It’s going to be weird. This is the first time I’m operating without that show to go back to, as a little home.’,” Bell writes.

In contrast, O’Brien is going ahead to star in the new film American Assassin along side actors like Scott Adkins and Michael Keaton. Amy Kaufman, latimes.com, talks about life for O’Brien after a previous accident on the set of another movie and him coming back to acting. “American Assassin” is the reason O’Brien emerged from his self-imposed exile. He’d signed onto the film just a few weeks before he began work on “Maze Runner: The Death Cure,” the third and final installment in 20th Century Fox’s post-apocalyptic young-adult franchise. He was hoping “Assassin” would mark the beginning of a new period in his career. In 2017, after six seasons, “Teen Wolf” would come to an end, as would the “Maze Runner” series,” explains Kaufman.

American Assassin comes out Friday, Sept. 15 and the series finally of Teen Wolf is expected to air on Sept. 24. I know I can’t wait for either. I will also be writing about the Teen Wolf finale so watch out for that one.
