In a new interview with Teen Wolf newcomer Arden Cho, the actress talks about her character, Kira, and what’s in store for her now that she’s in Beacon Hills.
The interview was conducted by E! Online, and covered romance, the Kitsune myth, and Cho’s own martial arts abilities.
What really caught our eye, however, had to do with a potential spinoff focused on Kira and the Kitsune myth.
Back in August, Executive Producer Jeff Davis told E! that the Kitsune myth had a lot of potential, hoping it could be something like his version of Buffy. And while nothing has yet come about regarding the spinoff, Cho has spoken about it, saying she thinks it’s a great idea.
“[It] would be amazing, but for now I hope that people like Kira on Teen Wolf,” Cho says.
Fair enough! She’s just been introduced after all, and it’ll certainly take more than two episodes to really understand what kind of character Kira Yukimura is. Still, we can’t help but dream about another show taking place in the Teen Wolf universe, and this one led by a female character!
“I really, really appreciate that Jeff has made Kira really strong, and you know, she’s cool,” Cho continues. “She’s awesome. But it’s cool because she’s not like, really confident in the fact that she knows she’s strong. It’s kind of something she’s discovering along the way, kind of like how when Scott initially became a werewolf, he didn’t really realize what was happening.”
With the same sort of premise, but a different set of rules and legends, a potential Kitsune myth could be a great show to get involved in.
But it also sounds like we’ll be getting plenty of that on Teen Wolf, and maybe for even longer that season 3B. Cho also mentioned that Kira may stay for a while, stating, “Kira will stick around for a little bit. She’s still very new to Beacon Hills, and I think she’s still hoping to figure out what’s really happening.”
She goes on to say, “I think one season’s not really enough time to figure out what Beacon Hills is all about.”
Regardless of whether or not we get that Kitsune spinoff show, it’ll be nice to have Kira stick around on Teen Wolf for a while longer.
