This weekend is the most heartbreaking weekend for fans of MTV’s hit TV Series, Teen Wolf. It’s time to say a final farewell to the beloved show.
Teen Wolf aired on MTV back in 2011 and to be honest, I wasn’t part of the fandom since the very beginning because during that time, I was too busy obsessing over Tween Magazines and Disney Channel TV Shows to give any care about a show called Teen Wolf. Gods, I want to slap my 12-year-old self, she’s missing a lot in life. But that doesn’t mean that I am not a true fan because being a true fan means you’re with the fandom until the very end.
The show already finished airing Season 3B and on its way for a 4th season when I decided to watch the series. The curious fangirl in me wanted to know why this show is becoming so popular. What makes it so intriguing for viewers? Why the hell is everyone going crazy over this actor named Dylan O’Brien and his character, Stiles Stilinski? It was all over my Tumblr dashboard that I even started shipping Stydia before I watched Teen Wolf. That’s the impact the show has on me.
Eventually, I became part of the fandom. I became a die-hard fan for this show about a teenage boy’s journey as he navigates his life as a high schooler and a newly bitten werewolf (As if high school isn’t difficult enough). I became hooked by the end of the pilot episode. I spent the whole summer of 2014 binge watching season one to three and I immediately fell in love with every sarcastic remark Stiles gives, with every outfit Lydia wears, with every story arc and with the bond the characters share.
Teen Wolf gave us six thrilling seasons in the last six years. While some were definitely well crafted, well written and well though of, some seasons—especially the last few were kind of made just for the sake of having viewers. The writing became dull and choppy. Nevertheless, the show is amazing as a whole. Below is my official ranking for all the seasons of the series.
Ranking Teen Wolf Seasons
- Teen Wolf Season 3A
- Teen Wolf Season 3B
- Teen Wolf Season 2
- Teen Wolf Season 6A
- Teen Wolf Season 1
- Teen Wolf Season 6B
- Teen Wolf Season 4
- Teen Wolf Season 5
When Jeff Davis announced that Season 6 is the last season of Teen Wolf back in San Diego Comic Con 2016, it was like a bomb thrown at us (the fans) and we inevitably can’t dodge it. I knew that one way or another the show will have to end but I didn’t expect it to be so soon. I expected the show to reach 7 or 8 seasons at most. The news was hard to process as I continue to watch the trailer for Season 6A and the only thing running through my mind is that how can this be the final season already?
I’m not prepared.
It’s been a year since Jeff announced the tragic news and now, we’re only a few hours away from the series finale. THE SERIES FINALE, YOU GUYS! (Curls in the corner of my room and cry my eyes out).
Teen Wolf will always have a soft spot in my heart. It is one of the TV shows that made me realize that I want to work on a TV set/production someday. The only thing that breaks my heart is that I won’t get to experience working on the set of Teen Wolf because by the time I graduate college, it’s over. It’s done. It’s finished. I feel so downcast knowing that I won’t be able to work with the whole cast and crew of Teen Wolf but hearing that they’re planning to have a spin-off of the show gives me hope that I might still be able to experience working in the Teen Wolf universe but still, working for the original is better.
((This might sound embarrassing or inspiring or weird but I already wrote my own story for any additional Teen Wolf seasons. It started out as an idea for a fan fiction but I realized my story can be a good story arc for a 12 episode season. Is it weird that I added original characters and one of them is a direwolf?))
I never want Teen Wolf to end but, alas, all good things must come to an end, right? Looking at it, I am thankful that they still gave us one final season and didn’t immediately cancel the show without having to say a proper farewell.
I am not yet ready to say goodbye to a TV Series that made feel like I am part of something, like I am there—fighting alongside the pack, solving mysteries with Stiles and Lydia, saving Beacon Hills from different threats and just plain enjoying fun moments with the pack and as a resident of the town known as the beacon for all things supernatural.
Please tune in to the series finale of Teen Wolf, even though I know it’s going to be heartbreaking to watch, I’ll stay with the pack until no matter what.
