Scott McCall was just another kid in high school. Until, one night his best friend Stiles brings him to the woods, to look for a dead body, and Scott is bitten by a werewolf. Being a werewolf came with its perks- stronger, faster, new star in the lacrosse team, popularity- but also made it hard to control his anger. Scott has also fallen for the new girl in town, Allison, whose dad is trying to hunt and kill Scott. Scott now has to try and balance his out of control life, figure out how to control his new powers, try not to be killed by the alpha that bit him, and protect Allison- and keep her from finding out his big secret.

Originally from Texas, Dylan Sprayberry, began building an impressive array of credits, with recurring roles on Tracey Ullman’s Emmy-winning "State of the Union” and “Common Law;” as well as a guest appearance on the ever popular series “Glee.” He went on to land the role of a lifetime as the legendary young Clark Kent (aka Superman) in “Man of Steel,” co-starring opposite Oscar winners Kevin Costner and Russell Crowe and Oscar nominees Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, and Diane Lane. Dylan also starred in “The Three Gifts” opposite Dean Cain and Reginal Vel Johnson, and “Shuffle” playing the young version of “Bones” actor T.J. Thyne’s character.

Shelley Hennig (Malia Tate)
Shelley Hennig, a native of New Orleans, Louisiana, grew up as a dancer who aspired to perform on a larger stage. Her ambition and love for dance was a creative outlet for her, and served as a way to cope with the loss of her brother, who passed away in a drunk-driving accident that occurred when Shelley was just 14 years old. At the age of 16, her dance instructor convinced her to enter the Miss Louisiana Teen USA pageant with the hope of providing her with new opportunities. She won the title and went on to compete for Miss Teen USA, subsequently winning that crown as well. During her reign, she campaigned with M.A.D.D. and Buzz Free Prom to share her personal story with students across the United States. 

After being crowned Miss Teen USA, Hennig was awarded a full scholarship to the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts where she fell in love with acting. Hennig worked relentlessly for two years to hone her natural talent. Two months prior to graduation, Shelley was vacationing in Los Angeles when she received a last minute audition and landed the contract role of "Stephanie Johnson" on NBC's long-running hit series "Days of Our Lives". She would go on to earn two Daytime Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series category for playing the feisty character. In 2011, after departing "Days of Our Lives", Hennig entered into her first pilot season. Within a matter of weeks she landed a leading role on the CW drama, "The Secret Circle", from executive producer Kevin Williamson (Dawson's Creek, Scream). 

She starred as "Diana Meade", the head of the coven, opposite Brittany Robertson and Thomas Dekker. Since wrapping "The Secret Circle", Hennig has guest starred on the critically acclaimed FX drama "Justified", as Timothy Olyphant's love interest, "Jackie Nevada" and on the CBS sitcom, "Friend Me", from executive producers Eric and Kim Tannenbaum (Two and a Half Men) alongside Nicholas Braun and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. This May, Shelley can be seen in MTV's highly anticipated comedy, "Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous", opposite comedian and creator Bo Burnham. In a multi-episode arc Hennig portrays "Christy Ackerman", the eccentric, camera-loving, high school "it-girl". This role was a nice change for Hennig, who has been looking forward to showcasing her comedic ability. She currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

Teen Wolf Exclusive Cast Interview

MTV’s Teen Wolf is a reimagining of the 1985 comedy film of the same name, which was itself a reimagining of the classic 1957 film, I Was a Teenage Werewolf. For nearly 60 years, it has become a part of pop culture. Unlike its predecessors, MTV’s version brought more emphasis on horror, romance and the werewolf mythology. Debuting in August of 2011, it has become one of the most popular shows on the channel.

It was announced at the 2016 Comic-Con International that the upcoming Sixth Season would be the final one. JeanBookNerd was at hand at this year’s Comic-Con International to get the first look and insight of the final season. We also had the opportunity to talk with Tyler Posey, Dylan Sprayberry and Khylin Rhambo to discuss about their time on the set, what to expect for this season, and what they have been up to since filming has stopped.
