Teen Wolf is upping their Teen Hunk Factor in the final season. Fandom has learned Benjamin Wadsworth (Girl Meets World, Let the Right One In) will feature in an “important” guest role in the show’s finale. Wadzy joins new faces Andrew Matarazzo and Froy Gutierrez (One Day at a Time) as the MTV show films its final three episodes.

Teen Wolf Executive Producer Jeff Davis tells me he worked with Wadsworth on his Let the Right One In pilot episode for TNT last year and wanted to work with him again. “I cast him in an important guest starring role in the last episode,” says Davis. News of the casting first came via Wadsworth’s Instagram where he posted a shot of himself on location with Teen Wolf Tyler Posey.

The Fresh Faces of Teen Wolf

He won’t reveal just what part Wadsworth will be playing on the show, but Davis says the new guys are important to the plot of the final ten episodes. “We have several new kids that we’re really excited about, who are both good guys and bad guys, that step into the story in big ways.” While Wadsworth’s character doesn’t show up until the end, Matarazzo and Gutierrez have larger roles. We’ve seen a lot of them on set in the past few weeks.

In addition to all these fresh faces, Davis is bringing back some actors who’ve left the show over its six-season run. Both Dylan O’Brien and Tyler Hoechlin (Supergirl) were rumored to be back on set last week while Colton Haynes (Arrow) announced his intention to return via Facebook Live last month. For now, MTV is keeping Davis silent on exactly who is returning. “I will tell you that more people than I expected are showing up to say goodbye to the show,” he reveals. “I had a list of people I wanted back, and I’m getting far more than I expected. It’s really nice, kind of a testament to how much everyone enjoyed being on the show that they all want to come back.”

Currently, Davis says they’re racing to finish filming. “We’re working like crazy to shoot the last three episodes all at the same time.” Teen Wolf returns to MTV for one last time this summer.
