Based on the book series by Edo Van BelkomWolf Pack (the spinoff of the Teen Wolf television series) will focus on teen Everett (Armani Jackson) and Blake (Beautiful Shepard), whose lives change forever following a fire in California, which will awaken a terrifying creature.
It is unclear how the Paramount + series (which will debut soon in Italy and we personally went to the launch of the presentation) will connect to the wider Teen Wolf universe, but there have been signs that indicate a link between the two supernatural dramas. The project is executive produced by Jeff Daviswho created the original series and wrote the next film.
We became aware of the wide scope of the project also from the signal of who will be part of the cast: we are talking about the actress Sarah Michelle Gellarwhich will reveal not only the protagonist but also has the role of executive producer of the Teen Wolf sequel film.
Known for her iconic portrayal of the vampire Buffy Summers, the actress has joined Davis and the protagonists Tyler Posey And Tyler Hoechlin at Comic-Con to preview his return to the supernatural drama genre. It was an important moment for Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans, as the return of the Gellar to a television genre that he helped define in the 1990s.
Sarah Michelle Gellar’s return to the genre that defined her television success
Interviewed with the Television Critics Association, la Gellar she confessed that she wasn’t always convinced by Wolf Pack and that she initially wanted to refuse to be part of the project. The actress, who currently stars in Do Revenge and Clerks III of the streamer Netflix explained that it has received many proposals for series from the supernatural genre. But what set the Teen Wolf spinoff apart, she recounted, was the resemblance to Buffy in terms of how she deals with the problems of today’s high schoolers:
“They offered me one, two, 2000 of this kind of TV series. Honestly, at first I had no intention of saying yes to the spinoff. When I read the script, it was the first time my interest sparked. One of Buffy’s beauties was her metaphorical appearance. These real monsters were the metaphor of high school horror and to me that’s what made the show so important and why it stands the test of time. After reading the script I talked to Jeff and we discussed the issues he wanted to address, especially anxiety and depression among children, especially regarding the use of devices and the lack of connectivity. It’s something I always think about, and it’s important. But at the same time, I love entertainment programs. I want to be in a show that everyone is talking about. “
Sarah Michelle Gellar She will play Kristin Ramsey in Wolf Pack: highly regarded for her experience as an arson investigator and no stranger to personal loss, the character is called upon to investigate the huge fire that may have awakened a terrifying creature. This is an evolution for the actress, who is credited with playing one of the most memorable TV heroes of all time in Buffy. In fact, part of what made the series so successful, especially in the first few seasons, was the metaphor of the teenage years as a kind of hell, with demons of all kinds.
Thanks to the harmony of the cast and the excellent writers, many teen dramas have since tried to emulate the formula of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, with varying degrees of success. Whether Wolf Pack will achieve the same remains to be seen. But for a whole generation of viewers who grew up watching it Gellarand for many other viewers since then, his close involvement is an endorsement in itself.
