LA TV Insider Examiner was on-set with Posey (and the rest of the Teen Wolf crew, but we'll get to them closer to premiere) in Los Angeles recently to see what everyone's favorite Beacon Hills High werewolves, hunters, and laymen have been up to.
"Towards the end of the second season, Scott was kind of getting behind in school, and he was putting everything before school and trying to save people, and he has since prioritized his life. He’s doing great in school; he’s reading every day; he’s doing a bunch of pull-ups—one-armed pull-ups, by the way! So Scott is really trying to take care of himself. He wants to feel good about himself, so to do that he really has to be proactive and responsible, and he’s in a great place, even [with] the break-up," Posey said.
Season three of Teen Wolf will take place a few months after season two left off. Since Colton Haynes departed the series, the show will take a moment to explain Jackson's equal departure, which will cause mixed emotions for the group. Obviously someone like Lydia (Holland Roden) will probably be devastated, but Posey previewed a "happier" Scott without Jackson breathing down his neck.
"Jackson was really the only guy in their group that stressed Scott out. There was tension between them, and Scott’s a good guy; he doesn’t want that. I think that’s part of why Scott’s in a good place—because there is no Jackson. And Jackson was going through a lot of crazy stuff!" Posey said.
As Posey mentioned, Scott and Allison (Crystal Reed) are still broken up when season three opens, but being that they go to school together and are both heavily involved in the supernatural side of town, they will be thrust together a lot. While it might be uncomfortable or awkward at times, Posey said he considers there to always be hope that the two might rekindle their romance: "You never lose your feelings for your first love unless they kill you!"
But it may be awhile before either of them can really think that way or focus on normal teenage relationship drama in the first place. There is a new pack of wolves in town, and this time, they're Alphas. That brings along a whole new set of problems and danger as they work to infiltrate Beacon Hills however they can.
"They’ve been lurking but in the shadows. No one knows about them. They’ve been in hiding. The first episode is when you first get a glimpse of how big and how scary they are," Posey said.
"It's a year later since [Scott] was first introduced to an Alpha, so he’s got an understanding of what they are; he knows his own strengths and abilities; and he knows how powerful Alphas are...[but] everyone is just evil!"
Teen Wolf season three will air on Monday nights at 10 p.m. on MTV, starting June 3rd 2013.
