MTV's 'Teen Wolf' gets big series order

"Teen Wolf" - MTV's solid freshman about teens and wolves and the combination thereof - yesterday got a vote of confidence from MTV that was and is unparallelled: a 24-episode order for a third season. You'd almost think Charlie Sheen was one of the hairy howling teens... 

  This is a huge deal for this good show - obviously propelled to such heights by Newsday's glowing review last summer. Per MTV, which announced yesterday at Comic-Con...  

Season three will feature 24 episodes, double the number of its first and second seasons, and will shoot in Los Angeles. This unprecedented pick-up marks the first time an MTV primetime scripted series has been renewed for a third season and the largest episode order in the scripted category to date. “‘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.
