Something wicked is heading to Beacon Hills!

The Secret Circle's Shelley Hennig is set to appear on the upcoming season of Teen Wolf, E! News has exclusively confirmed. Hennig, who played the coven leader Diana on the shortlived CW cult-drama, is joining the MTV hit series, which returns on Jan. 6, in a top-secret, highly guarded role. Seriously, if we spilled any details, we're pretty sure the Kanima, Deucalion and all of the show's other big bads would team up against us.

Since The Secret Circle's cancellation, Hennig made a memorable guest appearance on FX's Justified opposite Timothy Olyphant and costarred on MTV's Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous.

Teen Wolf will introduce "a new mythology" when it returns in January that is "based on the Kitsune myth, which some people might know a little bit about," executive producer Jeff Davis teased. "It is a very, very fascinating Japanese shapeshifter myth about the were-fox and the trickster spirit."

And Hennig's character isn't the only new lady coming to town in season 3B as Arden Cho is set to take on the role of Kira, a new student who brings a new mythology to town. Davis told us, "Arden's awesome. We're so happy about her. She actually is a third-degree black belt, so she's going to be using some of those skills." Is she the Kitsune though? "She's definitely something," Davis hinted.

MTV has already renewed the series a for a fourth season, which will debut in 2014 and consist of 12 episodes. Plus, the network will launch Wolf Watch, a half-hour of wolf fun for fans, providing insight into the popular series from its stars.

Teen Wolf returns for the second half of its third season on Jan. 6 on MTV.
