Hold your howls: Sarah Michelle Gellar is about to investigate a wolf pack.
Paramount+ today announced that Emmy® winner Sarah Michelle Gellar will star in and executive produce its upcoming original series Wolf Pack from MTV Entertainment Studios. The casting was unveiled -- in fitting fashion, may we add -- during Paramount+’s Teen Wolf panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, with a surprise appearance by Gellar.
Based on the book series by Edo Van Belkom, Wolf Pack follows a teenage boy and girl whose lives are forever changed when a California wildfire awakens a terrifying supernatural creature. Arson investigator Kristin Ramsey -- portrayed by Gellar -- is a highly regarded expert in her field and no stranger to personal loss; she's 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. We need more info. Oh, and Buffy Anne Summers (according to Gellar, she just turned 25 years old!) would love this character.
Wolf Pack will premiere later this year in the U.S. and internationally where the streaming service is available. Previously announced cast members include Armani Jackson (Honor Society, Chad) as Everett, Bella Shepard (iCarly, The Wilds) as Blake, Chloe Rose Robertson (Wildflower) as Luna and Tyler Lawrence Gray (Our Town, Macbeth) as Harlan.
The series is a part of writer and executive producer Jeff Davis's multi-year deal with MTV Entertainment Studios. He is also writing/producing the upcoming Paramount+ original film Teen Wolf The Movie. In addition to Davis (and Gellar), Joe Genier and Mike Elliott serve as Executive Producers for Capital Arts. Jason Ensler also serves as Executive Producer.
Gellar is best known for her work on the small screen, including CBS’s The Crazy Ones opposite Robin Williams, the CW’s Ringer, her role as the iconic Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and All My Children. Gellar also serves as the voice of the Seventh Sister/"Inquisitor" on the popular animated series, Star Wars: Rebels. Her film credits include Southland Tales, The Grudge, Scooby Doo, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream 2, Cruel Intentions, and Harvard Man.
Off-screen, Gellar is an author and entrepreneur. In 2015, she co-founded the organic modern baking company Foodstirs; she wrote her first cookbook, Stirring Up Fun with Food, two years later. Gellar also lends her time and support to child and hunger organizations as an advocate and activist. She works closely with No Kid Hungry and Good+, as well as the nonprofit organization CARE.
