I have added photos of Dylan attending the 32nd Annual Paleyfest LA yesterday for Teen Wolf to the gallery!
Over the last four seasons, the impossibly attractive high school heroes of Teen Wolf have squared off with werewolf hunters, a vengeful kanima, one seriously evil grandfather, a deadly pack of Alphas, ancient assassins, the nightmarish Nogitsune, werejaguars, banshees, Berserkers, a wendigo, and, of course, The Benefactor.
But, according to executive producer Jeff Davis, facing those supernatural baddies pales in comparison to the terror Scott and his pack feel in Season 5 about what happens to them after high school graduation.
“There’s this strange thing: For some reason when you graduate high school, you leave all your best friends — why do you do that? There’s a moment in the first episode where Stiles asks that question aloud. He says, ‘If we’ve met the best people in our lives, why aren’t we trying to stay with them? Why do we try and go our separate ways?’ That’s the big fear of Season 5: Who’s going to go away?” Davis told BuzzFeed News during a recent visit to the Teen Wolf set in Van Nuys, California. “Much of the previous seasons were about Scott finding and building a pack; this is going to see him possibly losing it — possibly ending up on his own without his friends by his side, wondering how he’s going to face life without them. Which is very similar to a teenager who has to go off to college and meet all new people. I think that’s a valid fear.”
But in Season 5, Davis added, the supernatural supervillains that Teen Wolf has become known for will also be making life in Beacon Hills a living hell. “For me, the tagline of this season that we use in the writers room is: The rules have changed,” he said. “The 20-episode season will be very much the world of the supernatural being turned upside down.”
What else can you expect from the next stretch of episodes? Davis broke down the new season, character by character, to reveal what Season 5 has in store for everybody.
1. Stiles Stilinski (Dylan O’Brien)
“One of the first questions we asked in the writers room for each of the characters is, ‘How can we test them? How can we challenge them in huge ways this year?’ I think we’ve come up with a really good arc for Stiles. Dylan is going to get a lot to play. This is very much a season of secrets and how secrets can break a group of friends apart, and how people can lose faith in each other. It’ll be interesting to see when Stiles loses faith in Scott, where his relationship with Malia is tested and broken. We’re going to have a lot of character drama and conflict with that.”

When we left Dylan O’Brien and his fellow Maze Runners at the end of movie one in Fox’s serialisation of James Dashner’s YA sci-fi series, they were… well, let’s not give it away for the sake of those yet to see the movie. Suffice to say, some have survived their first trial and are being whisked away to an uncertain future. Here, courtesy of two first-look images from the sequel, The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials, is a clue as to exactly how uncertain that future is. Click on the stills for a closer look.
As the title implies, they’re not off for drinks and a spot of post-Maze downtime. Check out the weaponry. Marvel at the true grit. Imagine the industrial zone in that old C4 telly stalwart, The Crystal Maze, only presided over with demonic zeal by a psychotic Mumsy: that’s where the young cadre find themselves. It’s a hardscrabble landscape filled with horrors they must surmount as they tackle the nefarious W.C.K.D. and its superior numbers and firepower.
Alongside Thomas (O’Brien) and the mysterious Teresa (Kaya Scodelario), Newt (Thomas Brodie-Sangster) and Minho (Ki Hong Lee) return for the sequel, joined by newbie Jacob Lofland (Mud) and Barry Pepper, presumably joining Team W.C.K.D.. Patricia Clarkson is also back to spin her character, Ava Paige’s sinister web.
The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials lands in the UK on September 18.

Out of the maze and into the fire.
In The Scorch Trials, the sequel to last year’s YA hit The Maze Runner, the action picks up immediately where the previous movie left off—with Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and the survivors of that giant mechanical labyrinth discovering that the world outside their walls is far from a welcoming one.
“The first movie was the mystery of ‘Where are we and what is this place? And can we get out?’ But the second movie is about the repercussions of getting out and the discovery of what the world is actually like,” says producer Wyck Godfrey (The Twilight Saga, The Fault in Our Stars).
Based on author James Dashner’s 2010 novel, The Scorch Trials begins with the revelation that the maze and the grassy Glade at its center were constructed by the nefarious organization WCKD to train young mind-wiped survivors after a massive solar flare devastated the planet. “It has transformed the world into a desert with sand dunes that crawl and are swallowing the ruins of a lost world,” says director Wes Ball, who returned for the sequel.
When Thomas and his fellow Gladers escape the control labs of WCKD, they set off across this blighted landscape, fearing attacks from infected humans known as Cranks. “We don’t want to call them zombies, but they fit into that category,” Ball says. “They’re not undead, but they are rage-filled.”
As for the image above? “Our group runs into a lot of people out in the Scorch,” Ball says. “Some are friends, some are foes. In this case, they’ve stumbled onto the latter.”

With plenty of fans, and more than $100 million in ticket sales, last year’s The Maze Runner was a certified hit.
The film, based on James Dashner’s young adult book series, dropped a group of unsuspecting boys into a mysterious maze, where they fought (sometimes each other) to escape.
The sequel, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, plans to blow away everything you thought you knew (unless, of course, you’ve read the books).
While “nothing can replace the maze,” says star Dylan O’Brien, who plays Thomas, they’re totally replacing the maze. The action this time centers on a lawless land called the Scorch, where the survivors try to gather more information about the WCKD, a powerful organization that’s in control of far more than they know.
Oh, and O’Brien, 23, tells PEOPLE that “there will be more female characters,” joining Kaya Scodelario, who in the first movie played Teresa, the only girl in the crew.
O’Brien is coy about divulging any more plot details, but he does promise answers for the questions raised in the original. With another two books in the series, he says, “our journey is not even close to being over.”
The Scorch Trials hits theaters Sept. 18, and check out Entertainment Weekly for more photos from the next installment of the Maze Runner trilogy.
