Teen Wolf will be adding two new gay characters on MTV’s fifth season of the scripted series.
The show will introduce a new couple, Corey and Lucas, TV Line reports. The pair will be introduced in episode 4, titled “Condition Terminal.”
According to IBTimes:
Both boys will be in danger right away. Corey will find himself undergoing an operation for “a strange, painful wound.” Meanwhile, Lucas is described as an introverted guy “who has become an aggressive problem at a club.” The actors starring in the roles have not yet been announced.
What we don’t know how Scott (Tyler Posey) and the rest of the gang will tie into the new character’s storylines. Since Melissa McCall (Melissa Ponzio) is a nurse, it seems likely that Corey would interact with her. If Lucas doesn’t survive his “aggressive problem,” perhaps Corey can rebound with Danny (Keahu Kahuanui). Remember him? For a long time, Danny was the only gay character on “Teen Wolf,” but he disappeared in Season 4.
“You have not seen the last of Danny,” executive producer Jeff Davis said at San Diego Comic-Con in July. “Teen Wolf” Season 4 was jam-packed with different storylines, so there may not have been a logical way to put Danny in the show. Perhaps, these new characters will bring Danny’s long awaited return. With filming underway and the cast’s tendency to tweet pictures, it’ll be hard for “Teen Wolf” to keep it a secret if Danny does return.
