Critics Consensus

Thanks to a charismatic lead in Tyler Posey and some dark, biting humor, Teen Wolf is a pleasant summer surprise, even if it does tread familiar ground.

Critic Reviews for Teen Wolf Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (18)

Instead of a cableized Vampire Diaries-style take on the wolfman myth, MTV got a warmed-over, underacted mess that feels more like a bad Twilight parody.

Nov 21, 2019 | Full Review…

The show plays out with a generally lackluster vibe, except in the performances of Posey and O'Brien, who wisely choose to avoid heavy-duty brooding and pouting.

Jun 3, 2011 | Full Review…

Teen Wolf bares its fangs and grins knowingly with them too.

Jun 3, 2011 | Full Review…

Tyler Posey couldn't be more perfect, or more teen-hunky, as newly bitten werewolf Scott McCall.

Jun 3, 2011 | Full Review…

A winner and best of all, fun.

Jun 1, 2011 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

It provides at least one reason to be happy that fur is back in fashion.

Jul 6, 2011 | Full Review…

While I won't pretend Teen Wolf is without flaws, it does have its merits.

Mar 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Moving at a fast, fun lope, Wolf has nothing to do with the 1985 Michael J. Fox movie-it's more in line with the CW's Vampire Diaries and other softly hormonal goth hits.

Nov 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Although the humor is there, this is not Fox's "Teen Wolf." This one has darker tones and considerably more bite.

Jun 4, 2011 | Full Review…

What a wonderful surprise from this summer show.

Aug 16, 2011 | Full Review…

As Teen Wolf takes a new turn in its long-running plot of the season, I have become more interested.

Jun 14, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The show is clearly trying to cash in on tweens' and teens' Twilight-inspired appetite for mythological monsters and forbidden love, but it offers some substantial content alongside the teen angst.

    Awesome action and cool

    Really love this tv show. Watched this with my daughter originally but I keep going back to it. I love stiles' sarcasm and the friendship of the characters. Keeps me coming back to rewatch.

  • Jan 30, 2021
    I was recommended the show and was told the first season wasn't great and I had to endure it to get to the good stuff in later seasons. It better be worth it because season one is pretty meh.
  • Apr 29, 2020
    A great opening season that sets up the tone of the series phenomenally
  • Feb 18, 2020
    An unexpected hit when it came out and i liked it a lot. The cast is great, the humor too.. The main villain.. Action is done ok.
  • Feb 16, 2020
    Muito boa, principalmente por manter um arco pequeno e não expandir muito o universo. Porém os efeitos são terríveis.
  • Dec 05, 2019
    A teen with teenage probllems being a werewolf. The show does justice to the Title. Love the series, the mysteries and relationships between Scott and Stiles. Scott and Allison had a real chemistry which was showcased very well by the cast.

    Rating: 10/10. 100/100 Got me started watching series. And furthered my obsession with werewolves.
  • Nov 14, 2019
    Even though it has a great plot, the cheap effects and lack of excitement ruins the fun. It is great for a "B-series". When i was done with season 1 i wasnt really looking forward to season 2, actually i dropped it. Over all It passed time
