In the series of interviews posted at TV Line, the cast talks about how the show’s fans have turned it into a full-fledged phenomenon, and how certain themes in the storyline give back to the audience.

Tyler Posey, an actor involved in one the series’ several applauded LGBT plots, says some of the most touching stories come from LGBT fans who’ve found safety in the show. “We get a lot of fans who have touching stories,” he says. “You know, they say Teen Wolf has almost saved their life. The fact that we emphasize the gay storyline on the show has made a lot of people come to terms with the fact that, you know, it’s OK to be gay.”
