Teen Wolf's Dylan O'Brien is healing up nicely; his recuperation is just taking a little longer than everyone hoped.
The 24-year-old actor suffered "concussion, facial fracture and lacerations" when a motorcycle stunt for The Maze Runner: The Death Cure went awry in March, and, while the film's production was originally scheduled to resume in early May, filming has been pushed back indefinitely.
This doesn't bode well for Teen Wolf fans. Part of the series' cast returned to set last month, but O'Brien's new timeline has fans worried. The actor will undoubtedly have to fulfill his commitment to the Wes Ball trilogy before he can head back to Beacon Hills, and, best-case scenario, this means Teen Wolf season 6 could be seriously delayed. Worst-case scenario, series creator Jeff Davis reworks the scripts to account for Stiles' (O'Brien) absence.
While the entire situation is far from ideal, those close to O'Brien are far more concerned with the star's recovery, and rightly so.
"Yeah, [we're still doing the sequel]. We've been postponed," The Death Cure's Dexter Darden told TMZ (via Seventeen). "Our main goal is to just make sure that Dylan gets better. So we're just supporting him as friends, as cast mates during this time that he's healing. And then as soon as he's healed and ready to go, we're going to be right back on it for Maze Runner 3."
How do you think Teen Wolf should handle the situation? Davis teased some major changes for Stiles in the premiere, and it would be a shame to see that story fall by the wayside.
"Something very big and very interesting happens to Stiles in the first episode," Davis told MTV, adding ""[Season 6] has a great Lydia-Stiles story. I think that'll make a lot of Stydia fans happy."
