Teen Wolf fans rejoice, Dylan O'Brien will officially be returning to the show for season 6.
O'Brien who earlier this year suffered from serious injuries on the set of his film The Maze Runner: The Death Cure is back for a sixth season of the hit MTV show. The actor, who plays Stiles in the series, is said to have a crucial role in this upcoming season.
Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis assures fans that Stiles role in the upcoming season might be more important than ever.
“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.”
In the photo of O'Brien on set (pictured above), fans will first take notice to O'Brien sporting a hand brace. Rest assured the photo had been taken before he left for filming the third installment of The Maze Runner franchise.
"That is a Dylan O'Brien injury that was written into the show," Davis stated regarding the photo. "You'll see what happens with that in the first episode."
Davis also revealed that it's been the plan to have Stiles be the center of the season 6 mystery. “When we were going into discussing this season, knowing that Dylan O’Brien had a big movie he was going off to do, we wanted to make sure that Stiles was going to be a very important part of Teen Wolf 6A,” Davis says. “So a lot of this story is about Stiles.”
Davis didn't spoil exactly what will be happening between Stiles and the rest of the gang; however, Tyler Posey who plays Scott on the show said, “Everybody has a lot of reflecting to do. It’s beautiful. It’s so cool what we do. You fall in love with Stiles every episode. It really makes you think of all the cool s**t that we’ve done with Stiles and Scott over the past few years, so it’s a really reminiscent season.”
And don't worry you "Scott and Stiles" friendship lovers, Posey also mentioned that “They’re very in love with each other."
