Pitchforks? Check. Torches? Check. Heartbreak and angst? Double check. “Teen Wolf” is back and the home Scott McCall so valiantly spent his teen years defending is no longer a safe haven.

It took five seasons, but the citizens of Beacon Hills have finally come to the slow realization that something is amiss in their quiet existence. Fear will ripple through the town once more as ‘Teen Wolf’ airs its final 10 episodes but, this time around, our heroes will be the characters fans dislike.

‘Teen Wolf’ on the defensive

Scott’s (Tyler Posey) season 1 nightmares have come back to haunt him. Hunters are prowling the streets once more but, unlike their slain counterparts, these cold-hearted marksmen won’t care who uncovers their true purpose.

Fueled by a sense of righteousness and revulsion, Tamora Monroe’s (Sibongile Mlambo) legions of supporters will turn to the teenage populace for help.

“We started with Scott and with Scott being hunted and we decided let’s end with that as well, let's come full circle,” Jeff Davis explained at San Diego Comic-Con. “It’s sort of the season of the rise of new hunters.”

Grandpa Argent (Michael Hogan) will, of course, be on hand as well. Nevertheless, it will be Monroe’s youngest recruits who really turn the tide. Nolan (Froy Gutierrez) and Gabe (Andrew Matarazzo) will comprise a cast of teenage hunters. Spurred by Scott’s very public transformation in the school library during season 5, some students will have just the right balance of fear and curiosity to leave them vulnerable to Monroe’s propaganda.

“Sibongile’s character Monroe sort of gets into the hearts and souls of the teenage population and Scott and his friends find everyone turning against them, seeing them as pariahs,” Davis said. “The new season is very much about fear and being an outcast, being an outsider.”

It’s a good thing those “outsiders” have an army of their own

Familiar faces return to ‘Teen Wolf’

Although the final ten episodes will be bereft of Hayden (Victoria Moroles), Alison (Crystal Reed), and Kira (Arden Cho), the series will reach deep into its rosters to staff the Scott McCall Defense League.

Dylan O’Brien’s Stiles left home to chase his FBI dreams following graduation, but no amount of schoolwork will keep the sarcastic sheriff’s son from returning to fight alongside his BFF. Due to his burgeoning film career, O’Brien won’t appear in every episode. He will, however, crop up in more than just the finale and the premiere.

“Teen Wolf”’s SDCC trailer showed him side by side with another fan favorite, the one and only Derek Hale (Tyler Hoechlin).

Unseen since season 4, Derek won’t be the only werewolf to follow the True Alpha into his final battle. Jackson (Colton Haynes) and Ethan (Charlie Carver) made quite an entrance at the series’ Comic-Con panel.

With Beacon Hills swarming with hunters, lycanthropes, banshees, hellhounds, and Theo (Cody Christian), Agent McCall (Matthew Del Negro) will choose the absolute worse time to stroll back into his son’s life. Based on the latest footage (see video below), however, it looks like he’ll take the supernatural in stride as he fights alongside Parrish (Ryan Kelley) and Sheriff Stilinski (Linden Ashby).
