Teen Wolf returns for third season

Teen Wolf fans should be wolfing out to hear that MTV has officially renewed the popular lupine series for a third season.
Season three will double up on the previously ordered set of 12 episodes and make for a full 24 of everybody's favorite were-teens. Kind of an interesting side note to that too- this is the first time that a scripted MTV series has not only made it to a third season on the air, but also made it to the two dozen episode level.
“‘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,” said David Janollari, Head of MTV Programming.  “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.”

“Teen Wolf” was the #1 show in its time period among teens during its season one run, and has continued to reign in the demo throughout the second season.  The series currently ranks as the #1 series across all TV in its time period among the key P12-34 demo, and draws 1.8 million total viewers each week.

On the social front, “Teen Wolf” is dominating the conversation, ranking weekly as one of the most social shows on cable, according to Trendrr.  In addition, the series is seeing triple digit gains in both Facebook and Twitter engagement. 
Look for a brand new episode to hit the network on July 16th at 10pm.
