How to watch Teen Wolf: The Movie in the UK
Scott McCall is back – and facing his greatest challenge yet.
Over five years after MTV’s Teen Wolf came to an end, much of the original cast including Tyler Posey have returned to Beacon Hills for an action-packed feature-length special.
The original Teen Wolf movie was inspired by the 1980s comedy-drama of the same name, and introduced the world to high schooler Scott McCall (Posey) as he grappled with frightening supernatural abilities that put a target on his back.
The follow-up film to the MTV series follows a now-33-year-old Scott McCall (Posey) as he reunites with his allies to fend off a powerful new evil rising out of the full moon.
A lot of the original cast have reprised their roles: alongside Posey, Tyler Hoechlin is back as Derek Hale, Holland Roden as Lydia Martin, Colton Haynes as Jackson Whittemore and Crystal Reed as Allison Argent.
Teen Wolf: The Movie was released in the US on 26th January 2023, but when will it become available in the UK and how can viewers on our shores watch it?

Of course, die-hard Teen Wolf fans will notice that breakout star Dylan O'Brien is a glaring absence from this cast list, with The Maze Runner and Love & Monsters star opting not to return for this revival.
“It was a difficult decision. A lot went into it,” O’Brien told Variety. “The show couldn’t be more dear to me. It was the first thing I ever did and so many people there are extremely dear to me.
"It was something I was trying to make work but it all happened very fast. We didn’t really know that it was happening and they kind of just threw it at us a little bit, which is fine because we all love the show. We were trying to figure it out."
He added: “Ultimately, I just decided it was left in a really good place for me and I still want to leave it there. I wish them well and I’m going to watch it the first night it comes out. I hope it f***ing kicks ass, but I’m not going to be in it.”
O'Brien's former co-stars Arden Cho and Cody Christian also passed on the project.
What is Teen Wolf: The Movie about?
The official synopsis from Paramount Plus reads: "A full moon rises in Beacon Hills, and with it a terrifying evil has emerged. The wolves are howling once again, calling for the return of Banshees, Werecoyotes, Hellhounds, Kitsunes, and every other shapeshifter in the night.
"But only a werewolf like Scott McCall, no longer a teenager yet still an Alpha, can gather both new allies and reunite trusted friends to fight back against what could be the most powerful and deadliest enemy they've ever faced."

How to watch Wolf Pack in the UK
Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis has another werewolf project in the pipeline for Paramount Plus, Wolf Pack, which launches on the very same week as this this film revival.
However, the producer is quick to point out that the two shows are not narratively connected, instead taking place in completely separate universes.
He told SFX: “I know that everybody gets confused by it, but I always say, 'Nobody thinks Twilight is in the same universe as Interview With The Vampire.' There can be two werewolf shows that exist in separate spaces.
"It’s funny because one of the things we did was consciously try and do things differently with Wolf Pack. I said, 'I don’t want to do the same show. I want to do something more adult, a little bit extreme in places. Not necessarily darker, but a little bit more sophisticated in terms of themes.'
"Teen Wolf was very comic book. It had a real sense of humour… not that Wolf Pack doesn’t have a sense of humour, but it’s not as comedic as Teen Wolf."
If a gritty werewolf drama starring Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Sarah Michelle Gellar sounds like your vibe, then check out Wolf Pack on Paramount Plus, premiering on Friday 27th January 2023 – a fine double bill with Teen Wolf: The Movie.
