Teen Wolf” is heading toward its last 10 episodes, so to bid adieu to the fan-favorite MTV series, Variety has exclusively learned that the show will return to Comic-Con this summer for its final farewell tour.

MTV has set a premiere date of July 30 at 8 p.m. for the back-half of its sixth-and-final season. The move to Sunday night highlights the significance the network is placing on “Teen Wolf” for its last hurrah with a high-priority timeslot.

As for Comic-Con, this year will be the biggest yet for “Teen Wolf,” which has been a fixture at the San Diego fan fest through its run. For the first time, “Teen Wolf” will take over Hall H, the largest venue at the convention center, which is typically reserved for pop culture phenomenons like “Star Wars,” “Game of Thrones” and “The Walking Dead.” The panel will take place on Thursday, July 20 at 2 p.m., and will feature cast members Tyler Posey, Dylan Sprayberry, Shelley Hennig, Cody Christian, Khylin Rhambo and executive producer Jeff Davis. MTV promises a few surprises, plus an extended sneak peek of the final season that will be screened for the 6,000 audience members.

For the past two years at Comic-Con, “Teen Wolf” has ranked as the most social show at the convention, per data from the convention. MTV has utilized the San Diego event as a space to break news for “Teen Wolf” — last year, the announcement was made that the show would be ending after six seasons.

Aside from the July 20 panel at Comic-Con, the cast will hit the convention room floor for a signing with fans on July 21. On that same day, Posey will also host the fourth annual “MTV Fandom Fest” interactive experience at Petco Park.

    I really hope when im older teen wolf will restart with diffrent cast and new storyline and more supernatural creatures if eny1 thinking that text that aswell

  2. Alex Jadiel says:

    I love Teen Wolf as much as I love Game of Thrones. I really hope one day MTV gives the show a Spin-Off with new teen characters and talents. Teen Wolf is and always will be the best show on MTV. I won’t forget it.

  3. Mary Gorecki says:

    Great time slot. That will do great competing with Game of Thrones on Sunday nights. Jeeez, what genius thought of that time slot? 🙄

  4. Phoebe says:

    TW has shed its audience steadily until it’s become an embarrassment for MTV and at this point they just want rid of it, hence Sunday night. It was a gamble making 6A with so little Dylan O’Brien and a HUGE mistake making 6B without him. No-one cares about the younger cast or Scott McCall.SDCC will be an embarrassment of empty seats especially without Dyllan O’Brien or Tyler Hoechlin.

  5. Christian says:

    Sunday is a high-priority time slot for MTV? Besides Jackass, MTV has never really bothered to program anything on that night (at least nothing worth watching).

  6. Will says:

    Khylin Rhambo appeared in season 4 and Cody Christian in season 5 (and Cody was invited to join the SDCC after only 1 episode with the broadcast) now again, they were invited. RYAN KELLEY appeared in season 3 and NEVER in SDCC was invited, is it because the stydia fan service? Does Ryan’s presence disturb the spread of fan service? You are idiots!

  7. Stephanie says:

    They are in hall H? They couldn’t even fill Ballroom 20 last year. Most of of the audience had never heard of Teen Wolf and people were only sitting in the room because they wanted to have a seat for the next panel. This is going to be an embarrassement.

  8. Chloe says:

    Teen Wolf has alienated so many long time fans that there’s no way it’ll fill up Hall H at SDCC. Maybe a few years back it would have but not now.
