Teen Wolf Season 4 was filmed in Los Angeles, California between February 19th and July 1, 2014. Episode 401, The Dark Moon debuted on MTV on June 23, 2014 and was, according to the Nielsen Company, viewed by 2.184 million people.

Overall, with the changing entertainment landscape of cord cutting, streaming and an industry-wide decline in linear viewing, Season 4 was the least watched Teen Wolf Season with an average episode drawing just 1.61 million viewers.


After completing a marathon 24 episodes over 12 months, Teen Wolf Creator Jeff Davis requested that MTV cut the show back to a 12 episode 4th Season.

The first of 12 episodes began filming on February 19th at the Blue Cloud Movie Ranch in Santa Clarita, CA. The location's "town" was redressed as a Mexican village for the first episode.

Interiors were once again shot on at the former Teen Wolf Headquarters in Northridge, California. Palisades Charter High School is again used for Beacon Hills High School.

Lacrosse returned as the school sport in Season 4. Two games were filmed - the first during the week of March 24 and the second during the week of April 7. The Beacon Hills High Lacrosse field is at Woodley Park in Los Angeles.

Behind the scenes photos and information from the filming of Season 4 set are available on our Teen Wolf Behind the Scenes Page.

Details of the plot were released during MTV's Upfront presentation on April 24, 2014 when a brief synopsis of the season was released to reporters and potential sponsors.

Still healing from tragic losses, Scott, Stiles, Lydia, and Kira return to a new semester of school with more human worries than supernatural, while also trying to help their new friend, Malia, integrate back into society. But Kate Argent’s surprising resurrection brings a new threat to Beacon Hills along with the emergence of another mysterious enemy known simply as The Benefactor.
