'Teen Wolf' Schedule For Season 6A Reshoots Delayed -- Is Dylan O'Brien's Condition To Blame?
After a short summer break, "Teen Wolf" was supposed to resume production on the first half of season 6 this August. However, executive producer Jeff Davis recently revealed that the schedule for reshoots and other additional work on season 6A will now start in October.
"Additional 6A work had to be pushed," Davis told Teen Wolf News. "We're going to start first week of October but that may get pushed to second. It's a bit of a shifting date at the moment. No sooner than October that's for certain."
Davis would not comment on the cause of the delay, but a source close to the show's production told the website that series star Dylan O'Brien -- who had an accident on the set of "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" last March -- "wasn't ready" for the work set for August.
Besides O'Brien's current health condition, it seems that the two-month delay is also due to the actor's other work commitment. As pointed out by Teen Wolf News, O'Brien is also set to film "American Assassin" with Michael Keaton in September, so he wouldn't be available for the MTV series next month.
Despite the delay, Davis said that brainstorming for the second half of the season has already started.
"I had a lunch meeting with the writers last week and we went over ideas for the last ten episodes," he revealed. "We think we've hit on a good theme and supernatural threat for the final round."
Meanwhile, after several months away from the public eye, O'Brien resurfaced on Sunday in a fan's Twitter photo.
In the pic, O'Brien is seen posing alongside the female fan, who captioned her post: "MY LIFE HAS BEEN MADE, meeting you was the best thing ever." The 24-year-old actor looks very different in the photo as he's sporting a gruff full beard.
"Teen Wolf" season 6 will premiere on Tuesday, Nov. 15 on MTV.
