MTV has given an unprecidented 24-episode order for the third season of its thriller series Teen Wolf, the network announced Thursday at the Comic-Con convention in San Diego.
MTV's 24-episode pickup doubles the number of episodes for the series' first and second seasons, and marks the first
the largest episode order in the scripted category to date, network executives said.
The series in its second season is currently averaging 1.8 million viewers and ranks as the top series across all TV in its time
period among the key 12-34 demo, said the network.
"Teen Wolf represents a terrific foray into the scripted world for the millennial MTV audience, and marks tremendous success in the continued diversification of our schedule," said David Janollari, Head of MTV Programming in a prepared statement. "Renewing the show for a third season celebrates the creative vision of executive producer Jeff Davis and the remarkable talent of the cast who bring this bona fide fan favorite to life."
