MTV has renewed its new series Teen Wolf for a second season. The show premiered last month and has thus far aired seven of its 12 scheduled Season 1 episodes, averaging a respectable 1.7 million total viewers each week.

12 more episodes are on tap for the werewolf drama's second season, which is expected to air in 2012. "We’re incredibly proud of this show.  Executive producer Jeff Davis has brought an exciting, cinematic story to life with a breakout young cast who our audience has wildly embraced,” said the network's head of programming, David Janollari in a press release. "Picking up ‘Teen Wolf’ for a second season marks another step towards the further diversification of our schedule, with this big, bold, entertaining scripted series."
