Most of the characters from the “Teen Wolf” series will soon be returning to a movie. But this will not be the case of Dylan O’Brien, who nevertheless played Stiles Stilinski, one of the main protagonists of the show. The actor explained his absence from the project.
Following Teen Wolf getting ready without Dylan O’Brien
In the 2010s, Teen Wolf was one of the most popular series of the time. During its broadcast, many fans followed the adventures of Scott McCall, a teenager who became a werewolf, and his friends. While we thought that the story of Teen Wolf had stopped at the end of the sixth season, in 2017, it will finally continue. Because Paramount+ currently has several projects in preparation around the universe created by Jeff Davis. To know a series and a film which will come out first.
A few weeks ago, the streaming platform announced many cast members for the feature film. If most of the main protagonists of the original show will be present, there will also be a few notable absentees. Including Dylan O’Brien. And the interpreter of Stiles Stilinski recently gave the reasons for his absence.
The actor considered returning…
O’Brien is currently promoting his new feature film, The Outfit. On this occasion, variety interviewed him and took the opportunity to ask him to speak about his absence from the film Teen Wolf. The actor revealed that he first tried to make sure he was present. But he was surprised by how quickly Paramount got the project up and running:
I tried to arrange to be able to be there, but everything went very quickly. We didn’t really know the movie was going to happen until they suddenly pitched it to us, which isn’t a problem because we all love the show. We tried to find a solution to make it work.
… but preferred to stop there with the universe of Teen Wolf
At first, O’Brien, therefore, seemed ready to resume his role as Stiles in the feature film. But he eventually realized that he preferred to keep the end of the series like his last experience in this universe. It is therefore indeed him who made the decision not to be part of the film:
Eventually I realized that I loved the way the show ended, and I didn’t want to change that. I wish the whole team a successful film, and I will go see it as soon as it comes out. I hope it’s going to be huge, but no, so I won’t be part of it.
O’Brien will therefore undoubtedly make many disappointed with this decision. Anyway, fans of Teen Wolf will be able to find most of the other characters in the universe before the end of the year. Because the film will be released in 2022 on Paramount+, without knowing exactly when. As for the series, titled Wolf Pack, we do not yet know when we will be able to discover it. But it could also happen before the end of the year, or probably in 2023 at the latest.
