Teen Wolf is coming back with a revival movie on Thursday, Jan. 26, 2023 on Paramount+ in the U.S. and Canada, as announced today during the film’s New York Comic Con panel: which cast members are returning and which are not? Find out!
The cast for the Teen Wolf Movie has finally been revealed! It’s not a shock that there a MANY recurring cast members that are ready to jump back into this supernatural world made of werewolves, banshee and other creatures.
It will be available for fans in the U.K., Latin America and Australia to stream on Jan. 27, with additional international market premieres still TBD.
Teen Wolf: the Movie – Synopsis
In Teen Wolf: The Movie, ”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. 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.”

So how is Scott different now that he’s grown up? “Beacon Hills royally messed him up and everybody else that was living there — except for Peter Hale, he thrives in Beacon Hills,” Posey says. “But Scott’s wanting to make a change. He lives in Los Angeles now … he wanted to get out, try a new life, try something else on for size, maybe step away from the leadership role a little bit.”
He continues, “As great of a leader as Scott was innately, instinctually, it’s confusing growing up in that world. It takes a toll. Discovering who you are as a human, as an adult, while also trying to save the world, you kind of need to sacrifice one for the other. He wanted to figure himself out, discover himself a little bit. And he’s more relaxed when we first pick up. It’s definitely a different version of him — but then he might have to resort to old ways when Beacon Hills summons him back.”
Derek’s a dad now!
Derek’s also extremely different in the movie … he’s a dad now! “It has its ups and downs,” Hoechlin says of Derek’s life as a father. “I really loved where Derek started on the show and where his story ended. For me, it was a very, very well-told, full story, so I thought it was a great thing to come back as a father and for his new challenge to not be about himself and figuring out who he was but trying to guide his son through that same process.”
We all wanted to see what would Derek be like as a dad?” Davis says. “Is he a good dad? Is he an okay dad or does he have some issues?” And since both Posey and Hoechlin are producers on the movie, Davis reveals that Hoechlin was actually able to help cast the actor playing his son Eli, Vince Mattis.
But now for the elephant in the room: where is Stiles? Dylan O’Brien is not among the cast returning for the movie, but that doesn’t mean his character is gone for good. “The movie does answer the question of what happened to ‘Stydia,’ so you’re going to have to watch,” Davis says. “And Stiles, while he isn’t in the movie, is ever present in the movie. These characters all leave an influence so there’s no way we could have done it without mentioning him or at least referencing, but all the other characters are there too. You’ll see some familiar faces.”
The official cast has finally been announced. This list is not complete: additional names will be announced at a later date. By far, here’s who’s coming back!
- Tyler Posey as Scott McCall
- LAST ADDED: Tyler Hoechlin as Derek Hale
- Holland Roden as Lydia Martin
- Shelley Hennig as Malia Tate
- Crystal Reed as Allison Argent
- Orny Adams as Coach Bobby Finstock
- Linden Ashby as Sheriff Noah Stilinski
- JR Bourne as Chris Argent
- Seth Gilliam as Dr. Alan Deaton
- Colton Haynes as Jackson Whittemore
- Ryan Kelley as Deputy Jordan Parrish
- Melissa Ponzio as Melissa McCall
- Dylan Sprayberry as Liam Dunbar
- Ian Bohen as Peter Hale
- Khylin Rhambo as Mason Hewitt
Of course, there are some names that are missing: Dylan O’Brien (Stiles) and Arden Cho (Kira) are not coming back. Cho was approached to appear in the movie, Deadline reports, but declined when she was only offered half the salary as her three main female costars.
At first, Tyler Hoechlin was on the line and nobody knew if he was about to return as Derek Hale. It’s official now: Hoechlin will reprise his role on the Teen Wolf movie! He also will serve as a producer on the film.
No words about Daniel Sharman (Isaac).
Dylan O’Brien said he won’t be reprising his role as Stiles in the Teen Wolf Movie
O’Brien confirmed that he will not be reprising the role of Stiles for Teen Wolf: The Movie, which premieres on Paramount+ later this year.“It was a difficult decision,” O’Brien says. “A lot went into it. The show couldn’t be more dear to me. It was the first thing I ever did I and so many people there are extremely dear to me. 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.”
“Ultimately, I just decided it was left in a really good place for me and I still want to leave it there,” he continues. “I wish them well and I’m going to watch it the first night it comes out. I hope it f–ing kicks ass, but I’m not going to be in it.”
Arden Cho Confirms She Passed On ‘Teen Wolf’ Revival Movie Over Salary Inequity
Teen Wolf alum Arden Cho has confirmed that she passed on joining Paramount+’s revival movie after learning that she was offered far less money than her white and/or male co-stars.
“I could probably, off the top of my head, think of over ten Asian American actors I know who were paid significantly less than their counterparts,” she said. “Sometimes you don’t have a choice to say ‘no.’ Sometimes you just need it. You’ve got bills to pay.”
She also told the publication she “wasn’t saying ‘no’ necessarily” for me or because I was angry. I was saying ‘no’ because I hope that there will be more equality in the future.”
New cast members
Teen Wolf will introduce us to a few more faces, as the official IG account announced on Friday. Vince Mattis, Nobi Nakanishi and Amy Lin Workman have been cast in the project.
Mattis will play Eli Hale, Derek Hale’s (Hoechlin) 15-year-old son. Lin Workman plays Hikari Zhang. Nakanishi is Deputy Ishida.

Since fans last saw the brooding bad boy in Beacon Hills in the 2017 series finale, Derek Hale started a family, and Paramount+’s Teen Wolf: The Movie will introduce Eli Hale (Vince Mattis), his 15-year-old son.
“He’s a dad now as well. So that was interesting and fun to play a dad as a different character — things I’m allowed to do there that I’m not allowed to do necessarily with Clark because of who he is and what he really is kind of at his core,” Hoechlin teased. “So that was really fun.”
Hoechlin continued, “He’s evolved a little bit. He’s changed.”
Jeff Davis is already thinking about a sequel
Davis made a comment that really caught our ear. After Posey said he wasn’t in the best physical condition for the movie, Davis said, “It’s going to be in his contract next time.”
When asked if that meant a sequel was in the works, Davis revealed, “Well, let’s see. It depends on how well this one does. It depends on how many people sign up for Paramount+.”
