Teen Wolf took everyone by surprise with its on-point humor, lovable characters, and excellent story. At Hypable, it’s safe to say we’re fans, and as such, we’ve decided to throw a little celebration in the show’s honor.

After the success of our Month of Merlin project, we couldn’t resist taking on another show and spending a whole month or more waxing lyrical about why we love it.

So…why ‘Teen Wolf’?

The real question is, why not?

Teen Wolf is truly that little show that could. It had everything stacked against it: It was on MTV, a channel better known for its reality TV than its scripted dramas; it was about werewolves, which were (and still kind of are) on their way out; and it was based on a really bad ’80s movie.

Yet for those few people that gave it a chance from the beginning, they discovered something hidden and magic, something that shouldn’t have worked, but did.

Maybe it’s because we love underdogs, or maybe it’s because this writer’s fangirling has slowly but surely convinced much of the Hypable staff to give the show a chance, but we decided there was no time like the present to give Teen Wolf a virtual party that even Lydia would be proud of.

What does ‘Teen Wolf’ Takeover involve?

Anything and everything! We’re going to have columns and interviews, ideas for a Teen Wolf party, speculation for the second half of season 3, and fun infographics. Everyone that writes an article for the Takeover is a huge fan of the show, so expect tons of quality content from multiple Hypable staffers.

This is a way to spread the word about Teen Wolf, connect with fellow fans, and celebrate one of our favorite shows in a way that it deserves.

What are you waiting for??

But, hey, we don’t blame you. The whole teenage werewolf thing is a little hard to get past, but we have a way for you to participate in the Takeover as well. If you (or one of your friends or family members) don’t watch the show and don’t really know much about it, feel free to send drawings or messages to Kyle@Hypable.com explaining what you think the show is about.

Kyle is going to be collecting emails, as well as Tweets from the #TeenWolfTakeover hashtag, from people who haven’t seen the show yet. He’ll be putting them in a post at some point during the Takeover, along with a special drawing from one of our own staff members that hasn’t quite jumped on the bandwagon yet.

Hilarity is sure to ensue, so make sure you use all of your knowledge of Teen Wolf to describe what you think it’s about in as much detail as possible.

When does the Takeover start?

Tomorrow, June 24, is our official start date. Look for some amazing articles to fill up the Hypable home page until July 22, which is when the highly anticipated episode 8, titled “Visions,” will air, giving us a look at more of Derek’s past. That’s when the Takeover will end, and you can definitely expect us to go out with a bang.

Dating profiles for the guys
We couldn’t leave the guys out of the picture, so we made sure we drew up profiles for each of them as well. Even Deucalion made the list!

If Beacon Hills were Hogwarts
It’s a fan-favorite pastime to put characters from other worlds under the Sorting Hat to see what Houses they’ll end up in. Some of the Teen Wolf characters were easy to place — others, not to much!

Five plots that could make Teen Wolf: The Movie a reality
We really want to see Teen Wolf: The Movie happen after the show is over and done with, so we thought we’d help out the creative team by giving them five possible plot points to build off of.

Why Sterek should and should not become canon
Hypable staff writer Kyle tackles a huge topic when he asks the question, should Sterek become canon? Listing three reasons why it should and why it shouldn’t, he jumps head first into the debate.

Why we love the adults of Teen Wolf
So many reasons, so little time! The kids are, of course, the main focus of Teen Wolf, but can you even imagine what the show would be like without Mama McCall or Sassy Uncle Peter? We sure can’t!

Quiz: What is your pet’s Ilvermorny house?

Why should you be the only one who gets a second wizarding house?

1:00 pm EDT, July 29, 2016

Will your pet be sorted into the same Ilvermorny house as you, or will you have to disown them for joining your rival?

Step aside Hogwarts, there’s a new wizarding school in town (or rather, across the sea)! With a new school comes new houses, and a new sorting test. You might’ve gone through an identity crisis after taking the test for yourself, but you’re not the only one who needs sorting. That furry, scaly, or feathery friend needs to know where they belong too, and we’re here to do just that! Last time we helped you find out what Hogwarts house your pet would be sorted into, so now we’ll help you figure out what Ilvermorny house they belong in.

It’s typical for pets to have similar personalities to their owners, so maybe your pet will end up in the same house as you. But to those who have house rivalries, brace yourselves: It’s also possible your pet will end up in a different house than you, maybe even your rival house! Will you be saying ‘bye bye birdie,’ or do you thrive in competition? That probably depends on your Hogwarts and Ilvermorny house.

Whether you have a dog, cat, rabbit, bird, or reptile, all pets are welcome at Hypable’s Ilvermorny sorting ceremony! Take the quiz below and let us know where your pet’s loyalties lie, and be sure to take it for each of your pets (unless they’re a squib. Is there an American name for squib?). Don’t want any of them to feel left out!


Now that you know your pet’s Ilvermorny house, maybe you’ll want to decorate their bed with their house crest (shoutout to the Hufflepuffs)! Or maybe you’ll forbid them from entering your room if they’re in a different house (shoutout to the Slytherins)!

Did your pet get the same Ilvermorny house as you?

Forget seeing Luke Cage and Daisy Johnson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to Jeph Loeb, it’s simply too hard to plan.

Although the Marvel movies and TV series ostensibly exist in the same universe, and although Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. does its best to include Avengers references whenever possible, TV show characters are unlikely to ever show up in the movies.

This despite Chloe Bennet’s continued efforts to remind people that she is, in fact, Marvel’s first on-screen female Asian superhero, and the awesome crossover possibilities the Marvel Netflix series have opened up.

Marvel fans have long been aware of the difficulties of bringing TV characters into the movie ‘verse, but at the 2016 TCAs, Jeph Loeb provided a few more reasons for why it’s practically impossible to coordinate.

“Part of the challenge of doing this sort of thing is that the movies are planned out years in advance of what it is that we are doing,” Loeb says, as quoted by SlashFilm. “Television moves at an incredible speed. The other part of the problem is that when you stop and think about it, if I’m shooting a television series and that’s going to go on over a six-month or eight-month period, how am I going to get Mike [Colter] to be able to go be in a movie? I need Mike to be in a television show.”

In terms of planning out the character arcs, this makes a lot of sense. A Marvel movie might be mapped out years in advance of production, for not to mention release, which means any character scheduled to appear would need to have their stories planned for many seasons in advance. The continuity would certainly be hard to keep track of.

Of course they could still throw in cameos, which fans would probably really appreciate — and crossovers from movies-TV are much more doable, as evidenced by Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander)’s multiple appearances on AoS.

But Marvel is wary of doing that too much, too, because “we never want to be known as an Easter egg farm. It has to work within the story. We never want to do Luke Cage gets into a cab as Foggy Nelson and Matt Murdock are getting out of the cab,” Loeb says, referencing The Man From U.N.C.L.E..

However, don’t lose hope yet. “Anything is possible,” says Loeb. “As I often get reported by you folks for saying #ItsAllConnected, our feeling is that the connection isn’t just whether or not somebody is walking into a movie or walking out of a television show. It’s connected in the way that the shows come from the same place, that they are real, that they are grounded.”

If Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda weren’t enough to get you excited about Mary Poppins Returns, maybe Meryl Streep’s name on the roster will do the trick.

Mary Poppins Returns is not a remake of the original 1964 classic but rather a sequel to the Julie Andrews-led musical. As such, it stands to reason that we’ll be getting some new characters this time around. One of those characters will be Miranda’s Jack, who will be a street lamplighter.

And, according to Variety, another one of those new characters will also be portrayed by none other than Meryl Streep, who will be taking on the role of Mary Poppins’ cousin, Topsy. And, yes, the legendary actress will be taking on a singing role for the film.

This will also reunite Streep with her Into the Woods co-star Blunt, as well as Director Rob Marshall and Producer Marc Platt. Streep played the Witch in Into the Woods, while Blunt portrayed the Baker’s Wife opposite James Corden.

Disney’s official synopsis for Mary Poppins Returns reads:

Blunt has been cast as Mary Poppins and Miranda will play a new character, a street lamplighter named Jack. Drawing from the wealth of material in P.L. Travers’ seven additional novels, the story will take place in Depression-era London (when the books were originally written) and follows a now-grown Jane and Michael Banks, who, along with Michael’s three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack, she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.

Mary Poppins Returns and will hit theaters December 25, 2018.

Are you on board with ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ now that Meryl Streep has joined the cast?
