Season 5 of MTV's Teen Wolf premiered on Monday, June 29, 2015. The premiere episode, Creatures of the Night had an estimated 1.527 million viewers on Monday, June 29, 2015, while the midseason premiere, The Last Chimera, had an estimated 1.11 million viewers on Tuesday, January 5, 2016. This season was filmed in Northridge, California.

The fifth season of Teen Wolf received an order of twenty episodes during San Diego Comic Con in July 2014. Like the previous super-sized season, Season 3, Season 5 was broken up into two parts, but unlike Season 3, this season had an overarching story-line instead of two separate plots. In this case, Part A covered the arrival of the Dread Doctors and the creation of their Chimeras, while Part B moved on to the goal of the Dread Doctors' Chimeras, which was in service of the resurrection of the Beast of Gevaudan. This led to the unintentional release of the Doctors' captive, Garrett Douglas, also known as Der Soldat, which leads Season 5 into Season 6. The cast and crew began filming for Season 5A in early February 2015 and ended in late May; filming for Season 5B started back up in August 2015 and ended in December.
