The wolf pack is hoping for Emmy love.

“Teen Wolf: The Movie,” Paramount+’s adaptation of MTV’s supernatural thriller series, has been submitted for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding TV Movie, Variety learned exclusively.

Additionally, the streamer also submitted the film in five other categories: Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Anthology or Movie (Tyler Posey), Directing (Russell Mulcahy), Writing (Jeff Davis, Will Wallace, Joseph P. Genier , Russell Mulcahy), prosthetic makeup (Chris Gallaher, Adrien Morot, Erik Porn, Hailey Trifiro, Kyle Yaklin) and original music and lyrics (“Lemon” by Tyler Posey). This gives Posey, who plays werewolf True Alpha Scott and produces the film, three chances for recognition.

An unlikely contender to receive recognition, mostly based on the Academy ignoring the MTV original series, it’s fun to see the networks throwing kudos for its genre programming. This year, the race for TV movies is expected to have an abundance of genre films such as comedies like Hulu’s “Fire Island” and Roku Channel’s “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story” in addition to sci-fi films such as ” Sick” by Peacock. and animated films like another Paramount submission “Beavis and Butt-head Do the Universe.” This all follows the animated/live-action hybrid “Chip n’ Dale: Rescue Rangers,” which won the category last year.

Additionally, Paramount’s other film submissions include “Fantasy Football”, “Honor Society”, “Jerry & Marge Go Large”, “Secret Headquarters”, and “Significant Other”.

In an interview with VarietyPosey spoke about his return to his role as Scott McCall, the True Alpha werewolf and leader of the pack, after five years of sobriety, saying: “The older you get – the more comfortable you feel as a than anybody, you settle more. And that’s what I brought to Scott McCall. I’m more present. I’m sober now, and that was the first time I was sober on ‘Teen Wolf.’ I was addicted before, I was always high, so it’s nice to be present and fully aware.

“Teen Wolf: The Movie” picks up in the present day, 15 years after the MTV series finale, with a new terror threatening to plague the small California town of Beacon Hills. Now an adult, Scott McCall answers the call to protect his hometown, assembling a team of new allies and trusted friends to ward off their deadly enemy.
