Teen Wolf Executive Producer Jeff Davis spoke with Hypable and revealed two interesting facts about season 5 ahead of the premiere.
With Teen Wolf season 5 news in that strange state of coming in waves but there still not being enough to quench the thirst of fans, we’ll take any tidbits about this year’s show that we can get our hands on.
First off, Davis reveals Teen Wolf season 5, episode 2 will be titled “Parasomnia.” Remember, this episode will air on Tuesday, the day after the June 29 premiere, and it will be at 9:00 p.m. on MTV.
Parasomnia is not quite as paranormal as it seems at first glance. The word is a real medical term that describes any sort of abnormal behavior that may take place while a person is asleep. This includes sleepwalking, nightmares, and yes — even sleep paralysis.
So, does this mean we may be revisiting Stiles’ condition from season 3B where he had issues with sleep paralysis? Perhaps. But we’re also hoping to see a different kind of parasomnia associated with our characters — and maybe even one that’s well outside the norm for us humans, but could be a side effect of being a werewolf or other creature.
The second piece of information Davis told us was that these mysterious doctors we’ve been hearing so much about, which were featured in the recent trailer, are actually being referred to as Dread Doctors.
While there’s no hint yet at these doctors coming from any particular mythology, we’ve already noticed how dreadful they are. Dressed up like Victorian Era, steampunk medical professionals with a penchant for doing things the hard and bloody way, we’re definitely not looking forward to how they complicate the lives of our heroes this year.
Teen Wolf season 5 will premiere on June 29 at 10:00 p.m. ET on MTV. Episode 2 will follow on June 30 at 9:00 p.m. ET on MTV.
