Season 2 of MTV's Teen Wolf aired after the MTV Movie Awards on June 3, 2012. The season premiere, Omega, had an estimated 2.110 million U.S. viewers, while the second episode, titled Shape Shifted, which aired at 10pm the following night, had roughly 1.750 million viewers. As with the previous season, this season was filmed in Atlanta, Georgia and received a twelve episode order.
Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) and Allison Argent (Crystal Reed) conceal their renewed relationship from Allison's parents, who oppose it because they know Scott is a werewolf. Lydia Martin (Holland Roden) suffers chronic hallucinations since being bitten by Peter Hale (Ian Bohen), now dead after Derek Hale (Tyler Hoechlin) killed him to become the new Alpha Werewolf. Derek recruits abused teen Isaac Lahey (Daniel Sharman) into his pack, along with the insecure epileptic teen Erica Reyes and shy loner teen Vernon Boyd. Jackson Whittemore (Colton Haynes), bitten by Derek Hale at the end of Season 1, shows signs of rejecting Derek's bite, but the reason is a mystery. As Allison's heartless grandfather Gerard Argent (Michael Hogan) comes to town for his daughter Kate Argent (Jill Wagner)'s funeral, he decides to avenge her death by declaring war against all Werewolves, innocent or not.
