MTV has ordered a new series of Teen Wolf.

The reboot series will be based on the popular Michael J. Fox flick of the 1980s but will be given a major updating.

The series will feature a rookie cast of new faces including Tyler Posey as the titular character, Tyler Hoechlin, Crystal Reed and Dylan O’Brien.

The story will follow Posey’s character as he deals with his new-found supernatural powers after being attacked by a wolf. A departure is said to be made from Michael J. Fox’s basketball-heavy hero to a more Twilight/Vampire Diaries feel.

Teen Wolf will join the US remake of UK series Skins on the MTV line-up.
