Teen Wolf is getting a gay couple when it comes back from mid-season hiatus.

The supernatural MTV show will see gay actors Colton Haynes and Charlie Carver’s characters Jackson Whittemore and Ethan Steiner return as partners.

Carver said earlier this year that he would have quit acting if he wasn’t able to publicly come out as gay.

And in June, Haynes said he cried for three days after coming out.

Speaking about this latest plot twist, Haynes said: “It makes total sense.

“That’s why Jackson carried around that angst,” he told Entertainment Weekly.

And it turns out that the move had been a long time coming.

Showrunner Jeff Davis said he made the decision years ago.

“I thought, if Jackson comes back, he’s coming back in a relationship with a guy.

“Whether that means he’s bisexual or gay, that’s how he’s returning.

“I just felt like he went off to London and found himself,” he added.

And it is in the English capital where the couple will find themselves in the opening episode of this half of season six.

Celebrating their anniversary, they are ambushed, as you can see in the video below.

“They’re so sweet together,” said Davis, which is also clear from the clip.

Carver put it differently, commenting: “We’re an odd couple.

“His character’s always been kind of an arrogant prick, so I’m the one who tones him down.”

Haynes added: “They complement each other perfectly.

“They have a really beautiful relationship.”

It is understood that after their sojourn to London, the couple will return to Beacon Hills to fight in the war against an army of hunters.

We can’t wait.
