Despite his accident on the set of "Maze Runner: The Death Cure," Dylan O'Brien will still be part of "Teen Wolf" season 6, executive producer Jeff Davis confirmed in a recent interview.

"We aren't replacing Stiles," Davis told Creative 132 when asked whether O'Brien's character is going to die or be replaced in the upcoming season due to the actor's injuries.

"Dylan O'Brien will be back to film soon [but] he can't do any stunts," Davis said. "We're talking with Wes Ball, the producer of 'The Maze Runner,' [and] we hope to get him back on 'Teen Wolf 'to film, while being injured. But the thing is he wants to film. He's in perfect condition, but he's just not doing fine enough to do any stunts."

Davis said that if O'Brien returns to set soon, then he could be in every episode.

"I think I can say yes, he might not be in the third episode, but I think he'll be in it. We'll make space," Davis answered when asked if O'Brien will appear in each hour of the season.

However, Davis admitted that the show could delay production if necessary.

"If Wes decides to not risk anything, we would delay production, until [Dylan] is fine to film again," Davis said.

Production for "Maze Runner: The Death Cure" has been suspended indefinitely to give O'Brien more time to completely heal from the injuries he suffered in the on-set accident last March, which have turned out to be far more serious than initially reported.

"The resumption of principal photography on 'Maze Runner: The Death Cure' has been further delayed to allow Dylan O'Brien more time to fully recover from his injuries. We wish Dylan a speedy recovery and look forward to restarting production as soon as possible," read a statement from Fox.

"His injuries are very serious, and he needs more time to recover," added O'Brien's publicist, Jennifer Allen.

A WorkSafeBC report, obtained by iNFOnews.ca, revealed that O'Brien was injured on March 17 while filming a stunt scene where he had to transport himself from one moving vehicle to another vehicle in motion.

"An action sequence was being filmed for a motion picture. This young worker [O'Brien] was attached to a vehicle by a harness, lanyard and overhead truss system when he climbed onto the back (of) another vehicle. As the vehicles slowed, the trailing vehicle the worker was anchored to slowed more rapidly than the vehicle the worker climbed onto," read the latest WorkSafeBC report regarding the on-set accident in Cache Creek, British Columbia.
