Tyler talks to Latina about what Season 2 holds for Scott McCall:
"In the first season Scott was kind of a wimp, I thought. He’s just this kind who wants to be noticed and he finally gets all this attention, but he’s a werewolf so he doesn’t know how to deal with it all. He’s just complaining all of the time. This season, he lost the cure, which secures him to become a human again. He’s now dealing with it and that matures him in a way. He’s got this new mentality that he’s going to use his powers for good. He’s just maturing and turning into a little dude – a little man. (Laughs)."

“Season two is 10,000 times better than the first season in every single way,” Tyler told me yesterday at MTV’s Upfront press junket. “Every episode has big moments of action or emotion — I really think the fans are going to freak out.”
And it sounds like Scott & Alison ‘shippers will do a fair amount of freaking as well, since Crystal revealed that the two start off in a good place despite learning that her boyfriend is a werewolf and her family has been hunting them for centuries. “She’s still very much in love with Scott but her dad intercepts them in the season premiere and says they can’t ever see each other again,” Crystal says, hinting at a major Romeo & Juliet vibe. “But eventually something really horrible happens and she takes a complete turn.”
When I asked if this means she’ll embrace the family business, Crystal smiled and said, “Absolutely. She starts to follow in her aunt’s footsteps this season a lot, which is so much fun.”
Also having fun in season two is Derek — according to Tyler, the character is a lot more badass and a lot funnier now that he’s the new Alpha. And while Dylan adds that Stiles doesn’t share as many hilariously adorably hilarious moments with Derek in season two, the fan favorite can always be counted on for a laugh. And a think.
"I never thought Stiles was just solely comic relief, but there is so much more to him this season," Dylan tells me. "He starts to have more of a difficult time dealing with everything. He’s also got a lot more drama in his home life this year. He’s still funny in every episode – but there’s a little more serious stuff for him to deal with. Which I’m really excited about."
And while I can’t say for sure, it also sounds like a second Alpha will overpower Derek this season as the cast stumbled a bit when I innocently asked how this new Alpha affects the show. “Do you mean Derek?” Dylan replied, which led me floating this second Alpha theory and the cast basically throwing down the “sorry, no spoilers” gauntlet as the interview ended.
MTV’s funny, sexy, scary and all-around addictive reboot of the campy film franchise looks to have even more bite this time around, especially now that Scott McCall has embraced his inner lycan. ”He’s a lot more confident,” Tyler Posey says of his alter ego “Last year he was dealing with his unwanted powers, but now that it seems like there is no cure, he’s trying to deal with it more maturely, almost like a superhero…he feels like he’s responsible because he has these powers.”
"Trust the Instinct" - will be the new tagline for the Teen Wolf Season 2 Promos
With fans asking “What’s next?” the new promos tease the thematic overtones of the coming season with the tagline “Trust the Instinct.”
According to Tina Exarhos, head of Marketing and Multiplatform Creative for MTV, season two will explore the idea of instinct, and what makes one person rise to the occasion as a hero when another person might walk away.
“In season two, each cast member is tested in different ways, and each becomes a hero in his or her own way,” Exarhos said. “Someone who needs to be rescued one day may become a hero to someone else the next.”
