What … what’s that? Some brand new season 5 footage premiering at the MTV Movie Awards?! That’s right Teen Wolf fans, and before we discuss it, go watch it ASAP!
Et tu, Brute?
Before the teaser aired, there was a … teaser for the teaser and while those are usually pretty frustrating, this one turned out awesome enough that we’ll let it slide.
Look away from the creepy, drippy, lettering (oddly reminiscent of the black inky substance oozing out of people who reject the bite) for a minute and check out the actual message. Pretty ominous, huh? Here, have a throwback Seneca Crane meme to recover from the trauma.
Is that the faint scent of betrayal we’re getting a whiff of here? Could it *gasp* come from within the pack? While for purely selfish and “Please don’t hurt my babies” reasons I don’t want these characters to suffer any more than they already have. I’m also interested in seeing which direction this is heading. Jeff Davis was quoted about this very topic during Paleyfest:
“This is going to see him [Scott] possibly losing it [his pack] – possibly ending up on his own without his friends by his side, wondering how he’s going to face life without them.”
As one famous philosopher said (okay, Albus Dumbledore, same difference), “It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to your enemies, but even more to stand up to your friends.” We don’t know yet in which context strife might hit Scott and his pack, but there’s no doubt the people you trust and care for the most are also the ones whose deception will cut the deepest. Fun times ahead, right?
The doctors will see you now
Blink and you’ll miss everything, so here’s the 20-second teaser all slowed down. Bless those talented tumblr users!
WHAT IS THIS AND HOW DO WE MAKE IT GO AWAY
(Also, Final Fantasy fans, does it not remind you of this?)
Um, you know, after thinking about it, I’d rather take my chances with whatever ailments are coming my way.
Why do they all look like they just found out one of them is going to have to cut off a limb with a spoon?!
Needles, gas masks (?!) and torture … Yikes, terrifying much?!
Is it summer yet?
The assumed premiere date is June 29th : the official Teen Wolf account posted it in a cryptic tweet a few weeks ago, but it has since then been deleted.
Right now, all the official promos mention “Summer 2015” which makes me wonder if we might actually get it a little earlier. Think about it, they started filming about the same time as they did Season 4 (early February), which premiered on June 23rd 2014 with a 12 episode order. Season 5A only has ten, so filming should wrap earlier, right? What’s more, San Diego Comic Con is early this year (July 9-12) which means if Season 5 does indeed premiere on June 29th and Teen Wolf has a panel, only two episodes will have aired. And while that’s fine, it also means whatever trailer or clip they premiere during SDCC will be severely limited as far as spoilers for the rest of the season go.
In any case, while we wait, go ahead and watch the teaser as many times as you dare!
