Davis made the announcement during the Teen Wolf panel at the San Diego Comic-Con Thursday, July 24.
During the beginning of the panel, Davis announced that season 5 will consist of a two-part 20 episode run, more than the previous seasons. “It goes back to human problems as oppose to creating another mythology or a creature,” he said.
Season 4 newcomer Dylan Sprayberry, who plays new kid on the block Liam, has been promoted to series regular for next season.
The series is currently in the middle its fourth season, however Davis teased the crowed with the remaining episodes in a sneak peak video.
Still healing from tragic losses, Scott (Tyler Posey), Stiles (Dylan O'Brien), Lydia (Holland Roden) and Kira (Arden Cho) return to a new semester of school with more human worries than supernatural, while also trying to help their new friend, Malia (Shelley Hennig), integrate back into society. But Kate Argent’s (Jill Wagner) surprising resurrection brings a new threat to Beacon Hills along with the emergence of another mysterious enemy known simply as The Benefactor.
Teen Wolf also stars Tyler Hoechlin, Melissa Ponzio, Linden Ashby, JR Bourne, and Ian Bohen.
Attendees of the panel were gifted with a three-piece Bestiary handbook drawn by artist Swann Smith. The pages depict the anatomy and behavioral secrets of Beacon Hills mythical creatures including werewolves, kanimas, and oni.
Teen Wolf airs Monday’s at 10 p.m. on MTV.
