Beginning in 2011, Roden starred in the MTV teen supernatural drama Teen Wolf, where she played Lydia Martin, a popular, intelligent girl at Beacon Hills High School who eventually discovers that she possesses the supernatural abilities of a banshee. In 2016, it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con that Teen Wolf would end in 2017 after the completion of its sixth season. The cast of Teen Wolf were reunited virtually for MTV Reunions on Friday, June 5 for the show's anniversary. The virtual reunion, hosted by MTV News' Josh Horowtiz, benefited the First Responders First Charity.
On May 25, 2017, it was reported that Roden would play the lead in the third season of Syfy's horror anthology series Channel Zero, titled Butcher's Block (originally titled Staircases), which is based on the online Creepypasta stories. She portrayed Zoe Woods, a young woman who struggles with mental illness. The show premiered on February 7, 2018.

On May 17, 2019, Roden was detained by Brazilian officers at the São Paulo–Congonhas Airport, in São Paulo, Brazil. Immigration officials denied her entry into the country on the grounds that she had an invalid Brazilian visa. Roden claimed to have been treated as a criminal, they would also have denied food and water to her, despite having presented a valid passport and visa. After about 24 hours detained, she was allowed to enter the country. She criticized the rigorous way she was treated: "After two years of traveling to Brazil with this passport and this visa with no problems, to meet fans and make friends, I am taken aback by the accusations and the treatment that faced me from the Brazilian Police today. I am shocked that this is the same Brazil I know and love."
