MTV has renewed its fan-favorite drama series Teen Wolf for a fourth season, but the network is also ordering an additional companion series to run alongside the werewolf redo. Wolf Watch will have its series premiere on Monday, January 6th at 11pm ET, directly following the premiere of the second half of Teen Wolf’s current third season. The talk show is no doubt a reaction to AMC’s success with the Chris Hardwick-hosted Talking Dead and Talking Bad, which delved into the most recent episodes of two of the network’s most popular series.
Teen Wolf cast member Jill Wagner will host Wolf Watch, and the half-hour talk show will cover pertinent topics from the current season while also featuring guest appearances by the show’s stars and behind-the-scenes looks at the series. Season four of Teen Wolf will debut on MTV next year. Hit the jump to read the full press release.
