Shortly after MTV’s Teen Wolf won Best Youth-Oriented Television Series at this year’s Saturn Awards, I landed an extended video interview with creator/executive producer Jeff Davis backstage.  We talked about the recent twenty-four episode third season pickup, why the production is moving from Atlanta to Los Angeles, how he follows Joss Whedon’s “big bad” paradigm and how they keep the show fresh by bringing in new actors but balancing the regular characters’ appearances, and more.  In addition, Davis teases a bloody end to season two and big changes ahead for season three.  Hit the jump to watch.
