Scott McCall has always had a love interest during his Teen Wolf adventures -- but when the beloved Alpha returns this fall (!!!!) on MTV, he will be facing some unknown territory in the romance department. That's right, the Beacon Hills teen will be without a girlfriend and will therefore be a true lone lycanthrope.
"When we realized that the show wasn’t going to have Kira Yukimura this season, we wanted to ask ourselves, ‘Does Scott always need to have romance in his life to be a compelling character?’ We thought this might be a season where we don’t see that side and we see him struggling a little bit,” executive producer Jeff Davis told Entertainment Weekly. “He’s had two great romances: One was the very epic and tragic romance with Allison, and we wanted to do a sort of romantic comedy side with Kira. But this season sees Scott as a single guy just trying to graduate and be there for his friends while facing yet another supernatural crisis.”
So how did Posey react when he heard this uncharted character development?
“It was something I’ve always been interested in because from the very first episode of Teen Wolf, he falls in love with Allison and then they break up and he immediately meets Kira -- so there wasn’t really much single time for Scott," the thespian explains about his alter ego. "In my experience, in Tyler Posey’s world, it’s kind of always been that way too. This is the first two years I’m really single, so I relate to it with Scott. And I thought it was something that every person has to go through in their life -- grow on their own and really figure out who they are. That’s kind of what’s going on with Scott.”
