Where is Stiles? And better yet, who is Stiles? Those are the questions at the center of Teen Wolf‘s upcoming sixth and final season.

As we know, Stiles is abducted by the Ghost Riders — the season’s new villain — in the season 6 premiere, and in some brand new artwork from MTV, Stiles is front and center, with a lightning bolt separating him from Scott. That probably has something to do with the fact that being abducted by the Ghost Riders means having your entire existence erased, so let’s hope Scott will be able to remember his best friend after he’s gone. (Spoiler: It won’t take long for him to realize something’s off.)

But Scott isn’t the only one affected by losing Stiles. When it came to crafting Stiles-less stories for the characters, Teen Wolf showrunner Jeff Davis says there was one challenge that stood out. “It was actually pretty hard for us to look at Scott, Lydia, and Malia, but the hardest one probably is Sheriff Stilinski, to suddenly think that Stilinski would approach his day as if never having had a son,” Davis tells EW, adding, “There’s going to be some surprises with his character in regard to his life outside of being a sheriff.

Below is a full look at the new art.


Teen Wolf returns Tuesday, Nov. 15 at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
