MTV orders third season of ‘Teen Wolf’

Net feeling good about scripted programming fare

Teen Wolf” will bare its teeth for a third season.

MTV, in fact, will be doubling up on the drama by bringing it back for 24 episodes — twice the normal 12-episode order. Also, a third season marks the longest a MTV scripted show has been on the air.

Series, based on the Michael J. Fox film, was developed by Jeff Davis, who exec produces with Marty Adelstein, Rene Echevarria, Tony DiSanto and Liz Gateley. Cast includes Tyler Posey, Crystal Reed and Tyler Hoechlin.

Teen Wolf” is currently in its second season, where it draws 1.8 million viewers per week. First season ran last summer.

On the scripted side, cabler is seeing strong buzz for high school-themed “Awkward,” starring Ashley Rickards and is set to launch British import “The Inbetweeners” Aug. 20 and “Underemployed” in the fall.

Strong scripted awareness is helping the net balance the loss of viewers for the “Jersey Shore” franchise. Spinoffs “The Pauly D Project” and “Snooki and JWoww” have underperformed in their first seasons.
