Plan on sinking your teeth into another season of MTV’s Teen Wolf. According to Zap2it, the cable network has renewed the werewolf drama for a third season, but instead of a 12 episode season, 24 installments have been ordered.

Teen Wolf previewed Monday’s upcoming episode at Comic-Con and teased whether or not Jackson (Colton Haynes) can be saved.

"Jackson's still going to continue to raise hell with everybody. This has just brought him to the next level," Haynes says. "Hopefully he'll maybe make the transformation into a wolf, or something else will come along and he'll move up the food chain. Maybe an elephant. Maybe a rabbit. A bunny." READ MORE
