MTV's smash summer hit Teen Wolf has been renewed for a second season, the network announced Wednesday.
The hourlong drama -- which premiered to 2.17 million viewers in June -- will air 12 new episodes 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," MTV's Head of Programming, David Janollari, said in a statement. "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."
A reboot of Michael J. Fox's 1985 film of the same name, Teen Wolf's young cast is led by 19-year-old Tyler Posey, who appears as just-bitten werewolf who struggles to keep his new identity a secret from his high school peers.
The remaining episodes of Teen Wolf's freshman season air Monday at 10 p.m. (EST) on MTV.
