Watch: The trailer for MTV’s “Teen Wolf” reboot

Pin it

One the one hand, the werewolf finally has a starring role and doesn't have to play second fiddle to some brooding vampire. One the other, this looks like one of those "gritty" remakes that's all the rage these days, and you will find yourself thinking, "Can Teen Wolf really be gritty?" MTV clearly thinks so, because this thing seems filled with angst, relationship drama, and abs:

Gone are the days of werewolves high fiving people in letterman's jackets! Perhaps that's because this version is actually a TV series, not a movie, and they need something to draw out the tension. (High fives kill tension. First rule of screen writing.) Teen Wolf will premier on MTV sometime in 2011.
