With all of the recent casting notices, Teen Wolf season 3, part 2 is quickly becoming packed with new faces, and you can meet each one of them here!

There have been plenty of new actors added to Teen Wolf as of late, and it’s beginning to get a little hard to remember who is playing who. Lucky for you, we’ve done all the leg work!

Below, you can find a list of the newest characters and what information we know about them so far. Keep this reference handy while you tune into the winter season of Teen Wolf on January 6, which is just two weeks away!

Arden Cho as Kira Yukimura

Arden Cho Kira Teen Wolf Large

What we know: Kira, a Japanese/Korean/American transfer student, is the biggest new character to join the cast of Teen Wolf. She’s there to blend in, hoping to make new friends and avoid being embarrassed by her father, who’s a new teacher at Beacon Hills. Once she meets Scott and the others, however, things start to take a turn — for better or for worse, we’re not sure yet. And, apparently, she may find out she has more of a connection to the Californian town than she initially thought. Oh, and she may or may not have a thing with Scott this year…

What we think: Nothing has been confirmed yet, but a lot of fans think Kira could be the Kitsune that everyone has been talking about recently. From the trailer alone, we at least know she’s aware of the myth, as she’s seen explaining it to someone else. If she is the Kitsune, we better keep an eye on her, as they are known to be trickster spirits. Kira might not end up being as straightforward a character as we initially thought.

Ryan Kelley as Deputy Parrish

Ryan Kelley Deputy Teen Wolf Large

What we know: Deputy Parrish is a bit of an enigma at the moment, but he’s been described as “pretty young and very good looking.” Well, he wouldn’t be on Teen Wolf if he was anything else, now would he? His role in the winter season will be to help Sheriff Stilinski unravel the supernatural mysteries of the town. Ominously, he’ll then become “part of the mystery himself.” Uh oh!

What we think: Deputy Parrish seems like an all-around good guy from what we know so far. We don’t think he’s got anything sinister up his sleeves, but that doesn’t mean something sinister won’t be happening to him instead. The last deputy didn’t make it all the way through the last 12 episodes, so Parrish better sleep with one eye open. We’re not sure if he’ll end up becoming part of the mystery because he’ll be killed or because he’ll be turned (into a werewolf or maybe something else), but we kind of hope it’ll be the latter!

Doug Jones as William Barrow

Doug Jones Barrow Teen Wolf Large

What we know: William Barrow is a known killer, and he’s been described as a mass murderer. Who knows why he’s in Beacon Hills, but considering the Nemeton is calling to all the crazies to the world, it isn’t that much of a surprise he’s popping up. Doug Jones is known for playing some of the creepiest characters ever to make their way to the screen, so expect to be watching his episodes with all the lights on.

What we think: Barrow may or may not be a supernatural creature, but we definitely think something funky is going on with him regardless. In the trailer, we see him on the operating table with a large hole in his chest. He then jerks upward as if he’s being shocked, and in the next scene he’s gone. Scott’s father also says that he’s being controlled by someone else, which makes him even more dangerous. Perhaps the puppet master will be the one with the powers, and Barrow will just be the marionette.

Tom Choi as Mr. Yukimura

Tom Choi Teen Wolf Large

What we know: We don’t know much about Mr. Yukimura at the moment, but he is Kira’s father and he is the new history teacher at Beacon Hills. We’ve been told he’s important, but other than that…we’re pretty much in the dark about him.

What we think: Considering he’s Kira’s father, we think he’s wrapped up in this Kitsune myth as well. He probably knows more than Kira does, and maybe he’s keeping her in the dark in order to protect her. We also think he could be related the old man we saw in the trailer. Could this be his father, Kira’s grandfather? Perhaps they had a falling out, much like Chris Argent had with his father, Gerard. At the moment, we don’t think Mr. Yukimura is anything to worry about, but considering this is Teen Wolf, that could change pretty quickly.

Shelley Hennig in a Top Secret Role

Shelley Hennig Unknown Teen Wolf Large

What we know: Nothing. No, seriously. We know nothing.

What we think: There are a lot of rumors going around about Hennig’s character at the moment. Considering Hennig’s age, it’s possible she could be playing a new character called Meredith, who is a student at Beacon Hills. Meredith is a loner, and the vibe we get from her description is a bit creepy. We won’t be meeting her until nearly the end of the season, so it’s a possibly she could throw a curve ball at one or more characters.

Matt Shively as an Unknown Character

Matt Shively Teen Wolf Large

What we know: Nada. Zip. Zilch. Zero.

What we think: Shively could be Hennig’s counterpart. At the same time Meredith was announced, so was another character — Oliver. Oliver is a student, and a quiet one at that. However, he’ll have some important information for one of the main characters. He also won’t be showing up until close to the end of the season, so keep an eye on what his role could mean for the wolf pack as well.

Gina Holden as an Unknown Character

Gina Holden Teen Wolf Large

What we know: Nothing. Once again, we’re kept in the dark as Holden’s character is also being billed as top secret.

What we think: Holden is a little bit older than many of the other new actors being cast, so we’re just going to come out and say it: We think she’ll be playing Stiles’ mother. We’ll be learning more about Claudia Stilinski this year, and considering how much fans have been clamoring for information about her, we think it’s safe to say that they’ll be keeping the information about which actress is playing the character on a strictly need-to-know basis.

Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as an Unknown Character

Cary Hiroyuki Tagawa Teen Wolf Large

What we know: The only thing we know about Tagawa’s character is what we’ve seen in the trailer. He’s a bit creepy, and he definitely knows a lot about which supernatural evils could be plaguing Beacon Hills.

What we think: We think the old man is definitely going to play a vital role this season, and it’s not going to be a good one. We see him pull a gun on someone (Chris?) at one point in the trailer, and he’s got a lot of information for someone we’ve only just met. We also suspect he may be the one keeping Derek and Peter hostage, and that’s just not okay with us.

There have been numerous other casting notices and minor character announcements, but these are the ones that have particularly caught our eye. So, tell us…

Which new ‘Teen Wolf’ character are you most looking forward to seeing next year?

Your wish is Marvel’s command. Fans have wanted to see a live-action Squirrel Girl adaptation, and it looks like it might actually happen thanks to New Warriors.

If you don’t know who Squirrel Girl is, do yourself a favor and look her up. Her name is Doreen Green and, shockingly, she can talk to squirrels. (Who would’ve guessed?) But it doesn’t stop there! She’s also got super strength and speed.

Fans have been fantasy casting the role for a while, but when Anna Kendrick said she wanted to play the character, the internet went wild.

Fans have been fantasy casting the role for a while, but when Anna Kendrick said she wanted to play the character, the internet went wild.

Shannon Purser has also declared her interest in the role. You’ll know her as Barb from Stranger Things, but she’s also just been added to Riverdale.

Before we can start casting, however, we need a show, and according to TV Line, that show is New Warriors.

Marvel and ABC Studios are currently shopping the project around, which would be a half-hour comedy based on the character. One of the tell-tale signs of a Squirrel Girl story line is its lighthearted and humorous nature, so this sounds like a perfect fit.

TV Line reports that the show is being described as “the junior version of The Avengers,” and that “the New Warriors are a superhero squad made up of teenagers.”

Marvel has, of course, brought plenty of its characters to the small screen and to great success. There’s even a chance that this project could be tied to some of the Netflix properties, as Doreen acts as a nanny to Luke Cage and Jessica Jones’ daughter, Danielle, in the comic books.

Just think about that crossover potential.

Are you looking forward to this ‘New Warriors’ show if it stars Squirrel Girl?

Shannon Purser plays fan-favorite character Barb on Stranger Things and now she’s joining a new project on The CW.

A lot of people instantly fell in love with Barb the moment she graced our screens in the Netflix hit series Stranger Things, and who can blame them? She was cool, confident, and not at all worried about what the popular kids thought of her.

Then the Demogorgon arrived. But that’s a tale for another day.

EW is now reporting that Purser has joined Riverdale, the television show based on the Archie comics.

Purser will be portraying Ethel Muggs for at least three episodes.

Don’t expect her to follow in the footsteps of her comic book equivalent, however. Ethel may have a crush on Jughead in the source material, but EW is reporting that she’ll have her heart set on someone else.

Ethel will also be teaming up with Veronica and Betty as they set out to get revenge on Reggie Mantle, Archie’s nemesis.

In July, we brought you our thoughts on the Riverdale pilot after we saw it at San Diego Comic-Con. It’ll be premiering midseason next winter on the CW and provides a darker spin on the original Archie characters as they become wrapped up in a murder mystery.

Though the pilot has already been shot, the remaining 12 episodes have yet to be filmed. Production on the rest of the season will begin in early September, and the show is expected to premiere in early 2017, barring any complications.

Are you looking forward to seeing Shannon Purser on ‘Riverdale’?

The Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Nick Jonas, Dwayne The Rock Johnson-led Jumanji sequel/reboot/whatever has completed its family with the addition of Karen Gilan.

In a Facebook post on Monday, The Rock announced that the Doctor Who alum will be joining Jumanji 2 and rounding out the cast. The Rock bills her character as having “the most important role in our movie.”

“We had to find a girl,” The Rock wrote of casting Gillan in Jumanji 2, “but not just any girl.” He continued:

“We had to find a girl,” The Rock wrote of casting Gillan in Jumanji 2, “but not just any girl.” He continued:

A girl who has “Chutzpah”. Guts and talent to stand her ground and hold her own against Nick’s cool rockstar ways, Jack’s relentless energy and genius, Kevin’s masterful timing and skills and the big, brown, bald tattooed guy who just simply stands there and oooooozes smoldering, captivating, sizzling, can’t take your eyes off this brilliant manly man… never mind I got drunk on the ol’ DJ kool aid again.

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m proud to announce a girl who’s playing the most important role in our movie – the talented, beautiful and down for a Scottish fight at any time, Ms. Karen Gillan.

And yes, this is the girl who is so bad ass she shaved her freaking head for Guardians of the Galaxy.

The Rock goes on to promise that “this isn’t a remake or a reboot, but a continuation of the awesome Jumanji story we love.”

Filming begins next month in Hawaii and is slated to hit theaters next year.

Gillan is best known for her role as Amy Pond in Doctor Who and, as The Rock notes, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.

The Jumanji “continuation” has been met with lots of skepticism since the original was led by the late Robin Williams. It just seems like an unnecessary, unoriginal idea.
