Comic-Con 2022: Sarah Michelle Gellar to Star in Teen Wolf Spinoff on Paramount+
Straight from the San Diego Comic-Con panel for Paramount+'s upcoming Teen Wolf: The Movie, the streamer has confirmed that Sarah Michelle Gellar will lead a new spinoff series of the MTV staple. The former Buffy the Vampire Slayer star will both lead the new series, titled Wolf Pack, and executive produce the show for Paramount+. According to Deadline, Gellar will take on the role of Kristin Ramsey, an arson investigator that is a "highly regarded expert in her field and no stranger to personal loss." In the series her character will be "brought in by authorities to catch the teenage arsonist who started a massive wildfire which may have also led to the reawakening of a supernatural predator terrorizing Los Angeles."
Gellar joins the previously announced cast members for Wolf Pack which includes Armani Jackson, Bella Shepard, Chloe Rose Robertson, and Tyler Lawrence Gray. The series will be based on Edo Van Belkom's book series of the same name and "follows a teenage boy, Everett (Jackson) and a girl, Blake (Shepard), whose lives are forever changed when a California wildfire awakens a terrifying supernatural creature. Wounded in the chaos of its attack, the teens are inexplicably drawn to each other and to two others, Luna and Harlan (Robertson and Gray, respectively), who were adopted sixteen years earlier by a park ranger after another mysterious wildfire. As the full moon rises, all four teens come together to unravel the secret that connects them — the bite and blood of a werewolf."
“Buffy was a huge influence. I always thought it would be amazing to bring Sarah Michelle Gellar back to a horror show.”— SFX magazine (@SFXmagazine) July 21, 2022
