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.
