When writer Jeff Davis took on the challenge three years ago to reboot the 1980s comedy Teen Wolf, he wasn’t on Twitter and had no clue about Tumblr. But fast-forward through two seasons of his edgier new rendition, and today he’s more than familiar with both sites — they, along with Facebook, have turned his creation into a social TV powerhouse.
“It’s almost like theater to me,” Davis told Mashable. “People really don’t want an autograph anymore; they want a follow on Twitter.”
Throughout the season, the show’s Facebook page also grew its Likes by 127%, spurred on by the success of The Hunt, an eight-week scripted social game on Facebook… The Hunt game on Facebook accompanied season two, and its success paired with the show’s ratings has “definitely played a role” in Teen Wolf getting renewed for a third season, MTV previously told Mashable.
