The first half of season 5 of MTV's "Teen Wolf" came to an end with some mysteries being solved, such as Parrish's supernatural identity. However, there are still questions that need to be answered.
For instance, season 5B will explore Parrish's past and how he became a hellhound. It's a sure thing that Parrish will play a major role in the second half of the season, as showrunner Jeff Davis revealed in a recent interview that one of the two figures in the painting shown in the finale is a hellhound.
The rest of the season will also explore his motive behind coming to Beacon Hills and what he is supposed to do there.
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter post the season 5 mid-season finale, Davis revealed what's in store for the characters, and noted that the gang wouldn't have graduated by the end of season 5B.
"One of the things we don't really do on Teen Wolf is those teenage tropes, like graduation or prom," the showrunner said. "We'll see if we ever get to graduation, but they won't have graduated by the end of 5B, partially because our timeline is also so condensed. A season of Teen Wolf takes three weeks in their actual lives because it's a thriller, and there's a compression of time that happens."
He also said he wasn't too sure of the future of the characters post their high-school graduation. Does that mean the show will wrap up after season 6?
"I have no idea. [Laughs] Who knows if [that] will be the last season or not. [But] beyond season six, I'd love for someone else to take over the show. If it still has life, if there's still stories to tell, that would be great — [to] see maybe Dylan Sprayberry take over the role of the Teen Wolf and see Tyler Posey move into more of a Derek Hale (Tyler Hoechlin) role," Davis said.
"Teen Wolf" is expected to return to MTV in January.
