Written and produced by Davis, who’s also the creator of Criminal Minds, the upcoming Wolf Pack series is based on the book series by Edo Van Belkom. 

The supernatural drama ‘centers on two teenagers, Everett and Blake (Armani Jackson and Bella Shepard), whose lives are changed forever when a wildfire awakens a terrifying supernatural creature.’

Gellar, 45, will be playing arson Investigator Kristin Ramsey, ‘a highly regarded arson investigator who’s tasked with finding the person who started the wildfire.’

But as the story unfolds there are signs that the blaze may have also led to the reawakening of a supernatural predator terrorizing Los Angeles.

Along with Gellar, Jackson and Shepard, the cast also includes Chloe Rose Robertson as Luna and Tyler Lawrence Gray as Harlan.

Gellar is popular with many within the Comic-Con contingent, due to her wildly popular role as Buffy Summers in Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

The supernatural drama series had a run of seven seasons, premiering in March 1997 on The WB and concluding in May 2003 on UPN.

Gellar is also known to most fans for her role in the slasher film I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997), the teen romantic drama Cruel Intentions (1999), the supernatural horror film The Grudge (2004), and its sequel The Grudge II (2006), and the sitcom The Crazy Ones (2013-2014).
