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.
