When Scott McCall is convinced by his best friend, Stiles, to join a search in the woods for a missing body, something comes out of the darkness to take a bite out of his side. As strange abilities begin to take affect the next day, Scott meets the beautiful new girl in town, Allison, whose family secrets further complicate his life.
Now aware that he's become a werewolf, Scott must deal with hunters trying to catch him, another werewolf named Derek Hale and the pressure of normal teen life -- all while trying to figure out how to play his first lacrosse game and get a second chance at a date with Allison.
Scott's first date with Allison ends up in the confusion of the dreaded "group date" with Lydia and Jackson in tow; meanwhile, a mysterious animal attack has Stiles's father, Sheriff Stilinski, on the lookout.
A new hunter in town puts Derek's life in danger, forcing him to make reluctant allies out of Scott and Stiles. While Scott tries to survive dinner with Allison and her father, Stiles attempts to keep a mortally wounded Derek alive.
A new animal attack involving Lydia and Jackson raises more questions among authorities about wild animals. While Scott and Allison skip school and take off unannounced, Derek must deal with the ever more aggressive werewolf hunters on his own.
Scott and Stiles come up with ways for him to control the transformation in order to be with Allison. Derek continues trying to make an ally of Scott in both his battle with the hunters and in his goal to find a mysterious figure that both sides are tracking.
Trapped in the high school at night, Scott and his friends face both suspicions among each other and the threat of attack from a powerful werewolf trying to get in.
With Derek on the run from Stilinski and his sheriff's department, Stiles must help Scott face his second full moon as a werewolf. Meanwhile, Jackson takes advantage of complications in Scott and Allison's relationship.
Clues, including a prior encounter with Derek, bring Jackson to a dangerous revelation about Scott. His actions begin to threaten not only Scott's life but his own, while Allison starts to question the strange behavior in her own family.
With startling revelations weighing on him, Scott finds himself scrambling to protect the people he loves -- including Allison, who begins to follow clues left by her Aunt Kate about her family history. Meanwhile, Stiles begins to close in on the mystery behind Derek's family.
While struggling with her family's secrets, Allison turns her focus to Scott and a Winter Formal dance. As the tensions between werewolves and hunters rise to a boiling point, Scott struggles to protect both friends and enemies while keeping his secret safe from Allison.
Caught in the middle of a war between hunters and werewolves, Scott discovers one last clue which allows him to enlist both friends and even a previous enemy in order to stop the mysterious killings and win back Allison, the girl he loves.
