Teen Wolf: Season 5 (2015 - 2016)


Season 5
Teen Wolf

Critics Consensus

Teen Wolf rebounds from a case of the narrative shakes by doubling down on the absurdity in a season that goes for broke with narrative irreverence and campy thrills.

Critic Reviews for Teen Wolf Season 5

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

This season of Teen Wolf has been full of ups and downs, new creatures, Doctors who mumble, and more disturbing images than I could've been prepared for. Yet, I really enjoyed this finale.

There's a problem at Teen Wolf's core, and "It's just Teen Wolf" isn't going to fix that.

Jun 30, 2015 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

There's nothing worse than stagnant plot lines, but luckily we won't have to worry about that here.

Mar 4, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

I really do love all of the girl power in this show... The women and girls are just dope, and they do dope things.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

I would love to see a more focused Teen Wolf next season, but I'm fairly sure that won't be happen. So long as the show remains reliably crazy, then I'm all for it.

Nov 17, 2017 | Full Review…

Even after all the dramatic, friendship-centric speeches Stiles has delivered over the years, that one hit me right in the blood-pumper.

Nov 17, 2017 | Full Review…

At one point or another, everyone was either injured, dead, or presumed to be dead. It was insanity. This hour could have definitely benefited from being split into two hours.

Nov 17, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

What I'm saying is, the old rules about what constitutes good TV need to be reconsidered. And fortunately for those of us still paying attention, Teen Wolf has never followed rules.

Jun 30, 2015 | Full Review…

Like most Teen Wolf season premieres, I have no idea what is happening or what to expect this season, but the episode was certainly entertaining.

Jul 6, 2015 | Full Review…

This season signifies the start of a transition away from what fans have become comfortable with, and it appears that the writers have that journey well under control.

Jun 30, 2015 | Rating: 7 | Full Review…

The season five premiere of Teen Wolf may be the show's best premiere yet...if it weren't for those silly opening minutes.

Jun 30, 2015 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

If this is the level of craft we can expect from the show this year, then we're all in for a real treat.

Audience Reviews for Teen Wolf: Season 5

    A grand improvement on the last season. Showing Scott's growth as alpha and having some of the best villains of the series while continuing the stories of all the characters we love dearly.

    Aqui se completa a jornada de acabar com o elenco antigo e com o estilo das primeiras temporadas que era tão bom. Não marca, serve apenas pra passar o tempo. A trama original deixa saudade.

    i think this season was good, but not as good as its predecessors. it kinda lost character and most storylines had a lot of potential but it was wasted
  • Jun 05, 2017
    This one on DVD rather than i-Tunes download. Adding to the disgusting trend this season is issued in two parts to boost revenue at the viewer’s expense. For your money you get very few extras. This may be Scott’s starring role but it is the friendship shared between Styles and Scott and the love between Styles and his father that grounds the show. Like so many relationships involving single parents the line between adult and child is often blurred here, the same goes for Scott and his mother. And although he is definitely part of the pack Styles is not a werewolf. The show has gone through a considerable amount of eye-candy. The bodybuilding Carver twins who morphed into an incredible hulk have departed as has much of the old lacross team. The solid and dependable gay Danny no longer flexes in the change room and the dimpled chinned Colton Haynes whom Scott described as a pretty boy is gone. As Deputy Parish Ryan Kelley spends more screen time flexing his naked chest than he does stretching his tightly taylored uniform. By contrast save for lifting his shirt to show off his latest wounds Tyler Perry has been keeping his clothes on.

    Even though I love this show, this season was full of crap, especially when Liam bet Scott in a fight, which is basically saying Liam could have beaten Peter in season 1, which is a load of shit.
  • Aug 08, 2016
    A slow, boring season with a few upsides to it yet a confusing storyline surrounding the new characters like Theo.
  • Jul 22, 2016
    Teen Wolf started out as a modern campy tv show with way too much teen sex and far too few good story lines. The only largely talented presence on the show is Dylan O'Brien, who far outclasses his co-stars by the start of season 3. By season 5, it's evident that while Holland Roden manages to keep the viewer's interest while she's on screen, the same cannot be said for the so-called 'star' of the show, the Teen Wolf himself, Tyler Posey. At season 5, we see the plot holes digging themselves deeper and deeper, contradictions in the lore are rampant, and the turnover rate for actors in a supporting role are indefensibly high. This show is awful. Period.
