Thousands of young fans of MTV’s “Teen Wolf” series are turning to a website set up by the network to offer a gathering place for people to collectively mourn the sudden death of one of the show’s main characters.
Twelve hours after “Teen Wolf” ended Monday night, more than 100,000 people had visited the TeenWolfMemorial.com website, with more than 4,000 posting messages about the character Allison Argent, who died after a mythical Japanese demon stabbed her with her sword.
Even more dramatic, she died proclaiming her undying love to her ex-boyfriend, the drama’s lead character Scott McCall. “Every post and everything I see brings back a new wave of tears,” posted one fan.
The death of Argent, played by actress Crystal Reed, wasn’t entirely a surprise; MTV has been advertising that one of the show’s main characters would be killed off. The network kept that character’s identity a secret.
“Teen Wolf” is one of MTV’s most popular shows, reaching a series high of 3.5 million viewers for the third-season premiere. About six in 10 viewers are female, with a median age of 21.
‘Peanuts’ movie will be 3-D
Everything else is going 3-D and CG. Why not Lucy, Snoopy and the rest of the “Peanuts” gang? At least, that’s what those behind a November 2015 release starring Charlie Brown and his beloved canine are hoping. Directed by “Ice Age: Continental Drift” helmer Steve Martino, “Peanuts,” which uses various 21st century technologies, looks to tap into the interest Americans typically have for “Peanuts” around the holidays, this time on the big screen.
Jagger mourns: Mick Jagger posted a poignant tribute on Facebook to his late companion, L’Wren Scott, saying he is still struggling to understand her death and will never forget her. The rocker, who canceled the Rolling Stones’ tour in Australia and New Zealand to fly to New York in the wake of Scott’s death, said the couple had spent many wonderful years together. Calling Scott his “lover and best friend,” he also paid tribute to her talent as a fashion designer. Scott died on Monday of an apparent suicide.
