Wolf Pack first official trailer: Sarah Michelle Gellar hunts werewolves in newly released clip for the upcoming series by the creator of Teen Wolf

Sarah Michelle Gellar is no longer hunting vampires. Now she is hunting wolves.

In the newly released trailer for Wolf Pack – an upcoming original series from Paramount+ – the 45-year-old Buffy The Vampire Slayer actress plays a member of a ‘joint task force’ investigating a mysterious wildfire.

Supernatural events start occurring after the wildfire breaks out and is witnessed by a group of teenagers on a school bus.

‘Everyone knows that Buffy The Vampire Slayer was a huge influence on Teen Wolf,’ Jeff Davis – the creator of the MTV series and Wolf Pack – said at a Comic-Con panel last year.  

‘So I always thought it would be amazing if we could bring Sarah Michelle Gellar back to a horror show,’ he continued.

Gellar – who plays arson investigator Kristin Ramsey and is also an executive producer on the show – said in the trailer: ‘We’re part of a joint task force investigating the wildfires. We’re looking for any of the kids who were on the school bus.’

The synopsis of the series reads: ‘When a raging wildfire descends on California, a mysterious creature hiding out in the forest is awoken and a group of teenagers find their lives changed forever.’ 

The original series – a TV adaptation of the book series by Edo Van Belkom – will also be starring Rodrigo Santoro, Armani Jackson, Bella Shepard, Chloe Rose Robertson, and Tyler Lawrence Gray. 

From the executive producer of Teen Wolf, the trailer of the series started off with a group of teenagers on a school bus in a highway traffic jam just on the outskirts of a raging wildfire nearby.

They then witnessed a stampede of animals emerging from a wildfire in a peculiar manner.

A stranger started to warn one of the kids that ‘there’s something out there’, but he doesn’t even finish the sentence before he is dragged into the fog by an unseen, menacing creature.

In the aftermath, several students noticed they have mysterious bite marks and strange events started happening.

‘Well, I don’t think it’s a 7-foot-tall monster,’ Gellar’s character said in the trailer as she worked on piecing together the puzzle and hunting down the beast.

The trailer also showed one of the affected teenagers picking up the phone in the middle of the night and an ominous voice saying to her: ‘He has to find you to kill you.’

Two of the teenagers become drawn to each other in the aftermath and to two other teenagers who went through a similar series of mysterious events 16 years earlier.
