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…

WB has revealed that it will take the threat of an alien race, The Dominators, to unite the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.

With Supergirl entering the Arrow-verse, she will be bringing aliens along — though it remains unclear how her Earth will integrate with Earth-1, where the casts of the other three series reside; Barry visited Kara’s Earth on Supergirl last season when he ran fast enough to open a portal.

“This year, for our mega ‘Arrowverse’ crossover, we’re taking inspiration from a DC crossover from the late 1980s known as Invasion!, which featured an alien race called the Dominators, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Superheroes,” Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow EP Marc Guggenheim says in a press release.

WB has revealed that it will take the threat of an alien race, The Dominators, to unite the heroes of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.

“This year, for our mega ‘Arrowverse’ crossover, we’re taking inspiration from a DC crossover from the late 1980s known as Invasion!, which featured an alien race called the Dominators, who’d previously vexed the Legion of Superheroes,” Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow EP Marc Guggenheim says in a press release.

“We’re using cutting edge prosthetics and computer effects to achieve a feature film-quality look which is faithful to Invasion! artist Todd McFarlane’s interpretation of the characters.”

The Dominators

The Dominators, collectively known as the Dominion, are an alien race from the farthest reaches of the universe. A technologically-advanced species who specialize in genetics, their society is extremely hierarchical, with status depending on the size of a red circle that appears on their foreheads.

Invasion! was a major, three-issue crossover event in 1989 that featured the Dominators joining an Alien Alliance to wipe out humanity due to the threat the meta-gene that allows for humans to develop superpowers presents.

When they traveled to Earth, heroes and villains alike teamed up to fight to protect the world. The Dominators were also an enemy of the Legion of Superheroes in the 30th century.

It’s also worth noting that Arrow‘s 100th’s episode will air during the crossover, so we should definitely expect something special.

Are you looking forward to the crossover between ‘Arrow,’ ‘The Flash,’ ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ and ‘Supergirl’?

Hypable’s ‘Gilmore Girls’ music playlist

‘Where You Lead I Will Follow’ by Carole King and Louise Goffin

What better way to kick off a Gilmore Girls playlist than with the show’s famous theme song? It’s the perfect opening song. (And if you choose to play it on repeat, that’s completely acceptable.)
 

‘This is Hell’ by Elvis Costello

It makes perfect sense that Jess’ first impression of Stars Hollow would be narrated by this song. After all, the starry-eyed small town life can be kind of overwhelming at first.
 

‘There She Goes’ by The La’s

Fact: This was the very first song played on Gilmore Girls! It accompanied an introductory look around Stars Hollow before introducing our favorite gals. Oh, the memories!
 

‘Then She Appeared’ by XTC

What a perfect song to mark Rory and Jess’ first kiss. It’s perfectly sweet and tender and just oh-so-totally them. It’s hard not to imagine the scene when listening to this song.
 

‘Fell in Love With a Girl’ by The White Stripes

This was one of the songs that Hep Alien played at their very first gig! Sure, it wasn’t really a great night for Jess/Rory or the band, but it started out well enough!
 

‘Reflecting Light’ by Sam Phillips

As if Luke and Lorelai weren’t cute enough together at Luke’s sister’s wedding, they had to go and dance beautifully to this tender song.
 

‘Human Behaviour’ by Björk

What would a Gilmore Girls playlist be without including a song from one of the girls’ biggest inspirations? Just take a listen and think of their famous snow creation.
 

‘Eternal Flame’ by The Bangles

Make one of Lorelai’s favorite bands one of your favorite bands by listening to this track on our Gilmore Girls playlist on repeat!
 

‘One Line’ by PJ Harvey

“I love you, you idiot” is probably one of the most quotable lines on the show. This song just set the mood and really made it that much more memorable. It’s nothing less than perfect.
 

‘So Says I’ by the Shins

Who could ever forget the spring break scene where Paris tries to make out with Rory on the dance floor? The fact that The Shins were playing this song live during the scene just made it so much better.
 

‘Time Bomb’ by Rancid

Not only did Lane dance to this catchy tune in Rory’s room toward the beginning of the first season, but Hep Alien eventually covers it during a performance later in the series!
 

‘When You and I Were Young Maggie Blues’ by Bing Crosby and Gary Crosby

Watching Rory and Richard bond over this song in the hospital room is still one of the most memorable scenes of the series. Pour one out for the wonderful Richard Gilmore. We miss you, friend.
 

‘Inside Out’ by The Mighty Lemon Drops

The Gilmore Girls series finale was such a bittersweet episode, but this song definitely made for one of the most memorable moments: Luke and Lorelai kissing!
 

‘If I Could Write’ by Sam Phillips

This emotional song sums up the Gilmore girls’ love for each other perfectly, especially in times of sadness. Who could ever forget this song playing as Rory packs for a grip to Europe with Emily after fighting with Lorelai?
 

‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ by Cyndi Lauper

Lorelai and Emily Gilmore walking a catwalk to Cyndi Lauper’s greatest hit? Classic. Though they may not have gotten along often, at least they could bond over this song.
 

‘O’Oh’ by Yoko Ono

Remember that time when Rory skipped school to walk through New York with Jess, stopping for food and record shopping? This song was the perfect accompaniment for their adventure.
 

The La La Tunes by Sam Phillips

Okay, so these aren’t really actual songs per say, but Gilmore Girls wouldn’t be Gilmore Girls without them (and so neither would the Gilmore Girls playlist)! They’re so iconic!
 

‘My Little Corner of the World’ by Yo La Tengo

We decided to end our Gilmore Girls playlist on a cute note with this sweet song. The mental image of Rory and Lorelai runing at each other from across town during the season 1 finale is enough to make anyone smile.

 

What song(s) would you add to our ‘Gilmore Girls’ music playlist?
