MTV has renewed their drama series Teen Wolf for a supersized third season of 24 episodes, which is set to air in 2013.

Based on the feature film of the same name, Teen Wolf revolves around Scot McCall, a gifted high school athlete whose entire life changes when he is bitten by a werewolf. The drama series stars Tyler Posey as Scott McCall, Crystal Reed as Allison Argent, Dylan O’Brien as Stiles, Tyler Hoechlin as Derek Hale, Holland Roden as Lydia Martin and Colton Haynes as Jackson Whittemore.

Teen Wolf currently draws 1.8 million total viewers each week and ranks as the #1 series across all TV in its time period among MTV’s target demo of P12-34. The show’s renewal also marks the first time that any MTV original scripted series has reached a third season and represents the largest episode order to date; double the 12 episode orders for both seasons one and two.

Speaking of the renewal, David Janollari, MTV’s Head of Programming, said: “Teen Wolf represents a terrific foray into the scripted world for the millennial MTV audience, and marks tremendous success in the continued diversification of our schedule. Renewing the show for a third season celebrates the creative vision of Executive Producer Jeff Davis and the remarkable talent of the cast who bring this bona fide fan favorite to life.”
