The first trailer for Maze Runner: The Death Cure will debut this Sunday during the series finale of Teen Wolf. 20th Century Fox's young adult franchise is coming to a close at the start of next year. Following two solid and well-received installments, Maze Runner is approaching its final film. For the concluding chapter of the trilogy, director Wes Ball is once again set to guide the ensemble led by rising star Dylan O'Brien.
Prior to his days playing Thomas in Maze Runner, O'Brien broke into the mainstream by leading Teen Wolf as Stiles Stilinski. As fate may have it, Teen Wolf is just about to wrap up the entire series just a few months ahead of O'Brien saying goodbye Maze Runner. Now, we know that these two closing chapters for O'Brien will help out one another.
The official Maze Runner Twitter account has announced that the first official trailer for The Death Cure will debut this Sunday during Teen Wolf's series finale. The finale airs at 8 pm EST, so the trailer could drop at the first commercial break only a few minutes in, or MTV could keep fans waiting until the finale break to air it. Either way, the trailer will come online sometime between 8-9 pm EST.

After the cliffhanger ending to Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials that completely set up a third film, fans of this franchise are undoubtably ready to see how it all ends. After Teresa (Kaya Scodelario) betrayed the runners and WCKD captured even more people, including Minho (Ki Hong Lee), it is up to Thomas and whoever else is willing to help to find and rescue them, while also discovering a cure for the "Flare".
The closing chapter will see almost everyone from The Scorch Trials make a return, as Nathalie Emmanuel (Harriet), Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Newt), Rosa Salazar (Brenda), Giancarlo Esposito (Jorge), Katherine McNamara (Sonya), and more are set to appear. But, it will also see Walton Goggins make his debut in this franchise as one of the film's villains, Lawrence.
Death Cure will serve as a proper farewell to the Maze Runner franchise, and hopefully the first trailer will reflect so much. Maze Runner hasn't reached the peak in pop culture that Hunger Games saw throughout its run or Divergent had at the start, but it has been a consistent franchise for adventure. Here's to hoping The Death Cure ends things on a high note, starting with its trailer launch.
