Teen Wolf exclusive first look: Dylan O’Brien’s officially back in season 6

It’s official: EW can exclusively reveal that Dylan O’Brien will appear in Teen Wolf’s sixth season. Despite suffering injuries while filming Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the actor will still play a crucial role when the show returns this fall. Furthermore, Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis assures EW that Stiles’ role might be more important than ever.

“Stiles is a big part of the season because a lot of this season’s mystery revolves around him,” Davis says. “We’re going to see just what Stiles’ friendship means to Scott, Lydia, and Malia. We’re going to see why exactly he’s Scott’s best friend, what it means that he’s Malia’s human anchor, and what his will-they-or-won’t-they relationship is with Lydia.”

EW has an exclusive first look at O’Brien in the first episode of season 6 (below), in which many fans will take note of a hand brace. However, as the photo was taken before O’Brien left to work on the third Maze Runner film, Davis says it was a completely separate injury. “That is a Dylan O’Brien injury that was written into the show,” Davis says. “You’ll see what happens with that in the first episode.”

But looking past the first episode, Davis says that putting Stiles at the center of the season 6 mystery had always been the plan. So despite the fact that the below photo was taken before O’Brien’s accident, Davis’ season-long plan didn’t change post-accident. “When we were going into discussing this season, knowing that Dylan O’Brien had a big movie he was going off to do, we wanted to make sure that Stiles was going to be a very important part of Teen Wolf 6A,” Davis says. “So a lot of this story is about Stiles.”

Although Davis wouldn’t spoil exactly why everyone is going to have to re-analyze their relationship with Stiles this year, Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey elaborates a bit, telling EW: “Everybody has a lot of reflecting to do. It’s beautiful. It’s so cool what we do. You fall in love with Stiles every episode. It really makes you think of all the cool s–t that we’ve done with Stiles and Scott over the past few years, so it’s a really reminiscent season.”

As for the friendship between Scott and Stiles — which was put to the test in season 5 — Posey adds, “They’re very in love with each other.”
