Creative 123 sat down with Teen Wolf’s executive producer Jeff Davis to discuss Dylan O’Brien’s role as Stiles Stillinski, One Direction’s Harry Styles on Teen Wolf and more;
Jeff, we’re gonna start with the important one, is Stiles gonna die or gonna be replaced for a season?
No, we aren’t replacing Stiles. Dylan O’Brien will be back to film soon. he can’t do any stunts and we’re talking with Wes Ball, the producer of The Maze Runner, we hope to get him back on Teen Wolf to film, while being injured, but the thing is, he wants to film, he’s in perfect condition. But he’s just not doing fine enough to do any stunts.
So the Harry Styles rumors are 100% fake?
No, they’re not 100% fake. We do want Harry Styles in our show. Like a new British boy. But we’re still in talks with people, directors, agents. So we can’t confirm anything yet.
Pete Ploszek en Alisha Boe just joined Teen Wolf, when are we getting more names?
When we’re filming episode 5 or 6. I think by then. But we might get a little break after episode 4. We’re filming episode 4 right now. If Dylan comes back to film next week, we will take a break till he’s at the same page. But if Wes decides to not risk anything, we would delay production, till he’s fine to film again.
So we’re definitely seeing him in every episode?
I think I can say yes, he might not be in the third episode, but i think he’ll be in it. We’ll make space.
Colton Haynes just came out of the closet, what can you say on that?
I’m proud of him, i’m happy for him. I think he’ll be doing much better now. After being in rehab for his sexuality and feeling so much anxiety. I think letting this out is a good thing. I didn’t hear from him maybe 7 months, but 5 days ago, he told me everything. So i’m so proud. I’ve also heard he’s back on Arrow for their season 5. He’s such a good actor, now he’s happier and you’re going to see his best performances yet.
So he won’t be returning to Teen Wolf?
It’s not like we don’t want to and he wouldn’t do it. The last time we hadn’t enough story, the twins were going to be used 12 episodes, Colton 12 episodes and Deucalion 24. But Colton dropped out. He wasn’t fine with it, because he could become a regular on Arrow. So we decided to have him gone, for a while. He wanted to be back. But a lot happened with fans and people. So today, Teen Wolf is way different, would he fit in? We don’t know. But if we go on and on for more seasons, i can tell you, he’ll be back for atleast 10 episodes.
About Daniel Sharman, people have seen him on set, is he back?
I can’t say. He has been on set, we’ve been talking, but he didn’t film anything, so if he’s back, i can’t say. But maybe not.
Is Ian Bohen back as Peter Hale?
Yes, he’s back, we’ve got a contract and he’s back. So is Gideon Emery as Deucalion. But he might just return for 1 episodes.
MTV is going to do a tv show with the Carver twins, what do you think about that?
I think it’s great. We love them and they’re going to do fine. They’re talented, funny and they’re good actors.
About MTV, they’re planning a lot for 2017-2018, does that include Teen Wolf season 7?
If we don’t get delayed i think we’ve got a big chance for that. But i might step back a little more and more. But if we get delayed we might air our episode 1 of season 6 in November. So then we might be done in July with our full season 6? But because that delay, if we get a season 7, by the time we get it, we’re going right back to work and try to have our first half of season 7 done by October, 2/3 months later. Then we can air the second part maybe after a 1 month break already. To make the fans happy.
