The news was confirmed on Entertainment Weekly, with a first look of the 24-year-old actor on set.
“That is a Dylan O’Brien injury that was written into the show,” showrunner Jeff Davis shared about his injury that occured on the Maze Runner set earlier this year, and the one you see in the first look photo above. “You’ll see what happens with that in the first episode.”
He continued, “When we were going into discussing this season, knowing that Dylan had a big movie he was going off to do, we wanted to make sure that Stiles was going to be a very important part of Teen Wolf 6A. So a lot of this story is about Stiles.”
Jeff added, “Stiles is a big part of the season because a lot of this season’s mystery revolves around him. We’re going to see just what Stiles’ friendship means to Scott, Lydia, and Malia. We’re going to see why exactly he’s Scott’s best friend, what it means that he’s Malia’s human anchor, and what his will-they-or-won’t-they relationship is with Lydia.”
ARE YOU HAPPY that Dylan is back for season 6?
