Calling all werewolf (and Buffy) stans! Wolf Pack, a new original series from Paramount+, is set to be the new teen supernatural thriller to get viewers howling online.

The Los Angeles-based series, adapted from a book of the same name, follows two teenagers, Everett and Blake, who find each other after a dangerous encounter with a frightening beast after a California wildfire awakens it. Together, they meet adopted fraternal teen twins, Harlan and Luna, who also had a similar experience with a beast sixteen years ago. During the next full moon, the four teens discover that they have a hairy reason connecting them — they’re been turned into werewolves! With terrifying creatures, meddling humans, and the now-bonded four teens working to solve the secrets of their mysterious circumstances each week, the suspenseful series is set to be the next show that viewers make a trending topic on Twitter.

Wolf Pack will also bring forth the return of Sarah Michelle Gellar to supernatural television for the first time since she starred in Buffy the Vampire Slayer 20 years ago. While Gellar was the teen keeping secrets as she slayed — and fell in love with — vampires in Buffy, she’ll be one trying to uncover the secrets as an arson investigator trying to figure out who’s setting the dangerous fires across the town. Gellar, who’s also an executive producer on the show, will be joined by acclaimed actor Rodrigo Santoro who’s best known as Luca in 7 Prisoners, Hector Escaton and Ettore in Westworld, and — for my fellow rom-com fans — Karl in Love Actually. In Wolf Pack, he’ll bring his talents to take the role of an environmentally-conscious dedicated park ranger and the adoptive father of Harlan and Luna.

But, while the show includes superstars like Gellar and Santoro, it’s the teens who will lead the pack in this eight-episode series. Learn more about them below, and get a “bite” out of Wolf Pack every Thursday on Paramount+ starting January 26th.
