Were you pleased with the reaction to season one of Teen Wolf?
“I mean, it completely changed my life, the reaction from season one. I can’t be more pleased. It was the coolest reaction that has ever happened to me.
“I knew while filming that we had something really good and people were going to respond to it really well, [but] I knew that the target audience was younger kids presumably, I didn’t know about anyone else. The reaction from all these different age groups and different people, even today, still blows me away, so I’m nothing but grateful and happy that people love the show.”
Do you think the show took people by surprise, because it was a lot darker than some were expecting?
“Yeah, definitely. Before people saw the show, they had Teen Wolf the original movie in mind, and basically thought MTV was doing the remake, so obviously people were a little confused and not quite sure how it was going to turn out. But once they gave it a chance, I think they found that this was something that was really different – cool and really unique and different that what they thought it was.
“So yeah, I think a lot of people were proved wrong in a way about the first season. And hopefully they will come back for the second season.”
As you said, season one was compared a lot to the Michael J. Fox film. Do you think the show has established its own identity, going into season two?
“Yeah definitely, we’ve established our own unique feel. It’s a lot darker this season, which is awesome, I’m happy about that. Yeah, we still pay some homages to the original movie but it’s definitely its own thing now.”
