Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

Daniel Sharman (Isaac) wanted to leave the show but asked Jeff Davis not to kill his character as he wished to return to the series at some point in the future.
Jeff Davis Orny Adams and Linden Ashby are the only people who know Stiles' real name. Though it is revealed in Season 6, episode 8 "Blitzkrieg" as Mieczyslaw Stilinski.
It is revealed in season 5 that Stiles' name begins with an 'M'.
Crystal Reed (Allison) did not come up with the scene in S05E01 where Scott writes down Allison's initials on the book shelf with all the other seniors' initials. This was a false rumor spread by fans of Crystal Reed via twitter. Jeff Davis confirmed in an interview that it was purely the idea of the writers to pay tribute to Allison.
Jeff Davis said in an interview that there was actually a side plot for season 3 where Jackson would find out that one of the Alpha Pack members was responsible for his biological parents death and would proceed to seek revenge. The plot was cut off due to Colton Haynes leaving the show at the end of season 2 to play the role of Roy Harper, on Arrow.
Crystal Reed asked to be killed off in order to pursue more mature roles. She no longer wanted to play a high school student.
There has been two Tylers, two Dylans and two Ians on the show. And starting from season 5 there were two Codys (Siantgnue and Christian Theo)
In season 3 Stiles references Back to the Future when he says Kira had 1.21 giga watts of electricity running through her.
At the end of season two when Jackson is seen standing up his werewolf eyes are blue this is due to the fact that he killed most of the 2006 swim team as the kanima because he was officially a shape-shifter from the night Derek gave him the bite of an alpha.
Danny mysteriously disappears after the season three ending and is not mentioned or heard from through out season four and the current episodes of season five. At the beginning of the lacrosse season in season four coach explains that Jackson and Isaac are gone but doesn't explain Danny absence however Jeff Davis has stated in a interview that Danny graduated earlier.
In the season 5b episode titled "Maid of Gévaudan" Crystal Reed returns two seasons after her character Allison's death, as Marie-Jeanne Valet, a peasant girl who killed the Beast of Gévaudan. She only appeared in flashbacks from the 1700's.
Each season of the show has a specific theme: Season one: The Argents, hunters, and the Alpha. Season two: The Kanima. Season three part one: The Nemeton and the human sacrifices. Season three part two: Japanese demons battling a Nogitsune which possessed Stiles. Season four: the Berserkers, Kate Argent returning, the Dead Pool, and assassins. Season five: The dread doctors and finding out what they did Season six part one: The Wild Hunt and Stiles being erased. Season six part two: The hunters and final battle
With the Season 5b final episode and overall season finale Apotheosis the character Arden Cho and Crystal Reed make their final show appearence, marking the exit of the actresses responsible for main cast characters that served as head hero Tyler Posey's Scott McCall's love interests.
Each season is foreshadowed at the end of the previous season. The season 1 ending shows Jackson receiving the bite foreshadowing him as the kanima in season 2. The season 2 ending shows the pack sign on the burned hale house door foreshadowing the arrival of the alpha pack. The season 3 ending shows Kate's return from the dead foreshadowing her and the berserkers. Etc.
Derek (Tyler Hoechlin) does not return in season 5.
In season 1 episode 5 the ending of Stiles real name is shown during the parent teacher conferences. Later in the show Stiles name is revealed as Mieczyslaw. The name shown in 1x06 is not the same.
Erica's death during season 3 was the first death to happen in this show that actually stayed dead throughout the whole thing.
In Season 5 episode 11 "The Last Chimera" Dr. Gabriel Valack (Steven Brand) mentioned to his orderly about Lydia's (Holland Roden) Banshee ability that she can use her powers to shatter a human skull as well; later in the episode "Lie Ability" Valack eventually meets his fate as Lydia's banshee scream shatters his skull, killing him.
