Adren Cho: Reportedly Declined ‘Teen Wolf’ Revival Film Offer

During the recent ViacomCBS Investors Event, Chris McCarthy, the streaming platform’s chief content officer of unscripted entertainment and adult animation, announced that the streaming platform was working on a sequel to the 2011 MTV hit Teen Wolf.

McCarthy went on to reveal the new feature-length sequel’s eleven recurring cast members. However, there were a few names missing, most notably Adren Cho.

Cho was the only woman of color among the four female series regular cast members who played the group of teen friends at the center of the original supernatural teen drama.

According to Deadline, in addition to Cho, series regulars Dylan O’Brien and Tyler Hoechlin will be missing from the Teen Wolf sequel.

While the outlet speculated that Cho and O’Brien would almost certainly not appear in the film, Hoechlin’s status remained unknown.

There had been rumors that Hoechlin would not be joining the production, but the outlet had received word that he might still be there.

Fans are more concerned about Cho’s absence because her refusal to join the show may have something to do with the industry’s pervasive discrimination.

Adren Cho Was Given Half of His Salary

According to a source close to the outlet, Cho was offered half the salary that the other female regulars were.

Cho reportedly chose not to participate in the Teen Wolf revival due to the pay disparity.

The reporting also suggested that the pay disparity situation was not something that arose during the film.

In fact, she was possibly written out of the show’s sixth season, which premiered in November 2016, because she was subjected to per-episode pay gap discrimination.

Cho first appeared on the show in the third season, and she later became a regular. She also got some screen time in the following two seasons of the show.

‘Teen Wolf’ Fans React

When the announcement was made public, fans began to express their thoughts on the microblogging platform Twitter.

One show fan expressed their relief that Cho would not be appearing in the upcoming film because they disliked her character to begin with.

They did, however, state that firing her due to a pay disparity was “criminal.”

Another fan speculated that a few of the cast members refused to participate in the upcoming film because they were outraged by the discrimination that Cho was subjected to.

I’m glad she’s not returning because I didn’t like her character, but paying her half her salary is criminal — HMFC12345 (@user74256588) 15 February 2022

She was the only reason I would no longer watch that movie. I’m hoping it’s a flop. 15 February 2022 — Alkeos (@ chaoticenby)
