Dylan O’Brien Officially Returning To ‘Teen Wolf’ Despite Serious Injuries
Showrunner Jeff Davis confirms O’Brien’s return despite the specifics of his condition being unknown.
It’s official; Dylan O’Brien will be returning to steal our hearts on the sixth season of“Teen Wolf.”
After O’Brien was injured filming the third installment of the “Mazerunner” films, many fans were concerned about what the injury meant for his “Teen Wolf” future. However, the series’ showrunner, Jeff Davis, has confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that O’Brien’s fan-favorite character will be returning for the sixth season.
O’Brien was run over by a car during the filming of “Mazerunner: The Death Cure” and suffered severe injuries, including multiple broken bones. British Columbia’s work-safety agency blamed the film production company for failing to ensure the safety of workers on the set.
O’Brien’s injuries delayed production, causing the film’s release date to be pushed to 2018, over a year after the film’s original slated release. However, Davis says this will not affect his return to the hit show.
“Stiles is a big part of the season because a lot of this season’s mystery revolves around him,” Davis told EW. “We’re going to see just what Stiles’ friendship means to Scott, Lydia, and Malia. We’re going to see why exactly he’s Scott’s best friend, what it means that he’s Malia’s human anchor, and what his will-they-or-won’t-they relationship is with Lydia.”
And as for everyone’s favorite on-screen bromance? “They’re very in love with each other,” said Tyler Posey of Scott and Stiles’ long-standing friendship.
