MTV renews ‘Teen Wolf,’ gives it talk show

MTV announced Saturday it plans to stay in the hirsute game, renewing “Teen Wolf” for a fourth season and pairing it with a “Wolf"-related talk show.

The series will return in 2014 with 12 episodes. And taking a cue from older cohorts like AMC and FX with postmortem after-shows (either on TV or on the Web), MTV will debut the new talk show “Wolf Watch,” set to air weekly after each episode of “Teen Wolf.” The announcements come as its devoted fans gather at New York Comic-Con.

That the network is beefing up the show’s presence is hardly one to howl over. The first half of the third season averaged 2.8 million total viewers and a 2.5 among the 12-34 demo--making it the highest-rated and most-watched season to date, according to the network.

“Wolf Watch” will be hosted by Jill Wagner, who plays “Kate Argent” in the hit MTV series and will feature guest appearances from the “Teen Wolf” cast and, as the press release states, “celebrity super fans.”


The talk show will make its debut when the second half of “Teen Wolf’s third season begins on Monday, Jan. 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
