The official series trailer for Wolf Pack has arrived.

Led by Buffy the Vampire Slayer icon Sarah Michelle Gellar, the upcoming horror series from Paramount+ is based on Edo Van Belkom’s book series of the same name.

The official synopsis reads: “The show focuses on two teenagers who are caught in a wildfire and are wounded by a supernatural creature. In the aftermath, they discover they’re werewolves, and develop an intense bond together.

“The two team up, and encounter two other teenagers, the adoptive children of a park ranger, who went through a similar strange wildfire sixteen years ago.”

Gellar plays Kristen Ramsey, an arson investigator who is “a highly regarded expert in her field and no stranger to personal loss, 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.”

Wolf Pack is helmed by Jeff Davis, who is best known for creating the procedural drama Criminal Minds and the supernatural series Teen Wolf.

Last year, David revealed that Buffy the Vampire Slayer had a “huge influence” on Teen Wolf and so he “always thought it would be amazing if we could bring Sarah Michelle Gellar back to a horror show.”

Gellar added: “Everything these guys have been saying about family and the atmosphere of Jeff’s shows is really true. I hope you guys come join us!”

Wolf Pack marks Gellar’s first regular television role since 2013’s The Crazy Ones. She previously starred in The CW’s short-lived series Ringer and, of course, Buffy as the title character, who is widely regarded as one of the most iconic characters in history.
