* Season 6A of ''Series/TeenWolf'' revolves around The Wild Hunt, with the Ghost Riders being the main supernatural threat of the season. In this interpretation, the Riders have the ability to erase their victims from existence, including all memories of them. They appear as ghostly cowboys and are capable of riding lightning bolts. [[spoiler:The taken are held in an otherworldly train station until the Hunt leaves town, at which time they join The Hunt and become Ghost Riders themselves. They also seem to have power over Hell Hounds, and do not abduct banshees.]]
