Created by Debbie Moon, the new series tells the story of Maddy Smith, who seems like an ordinary girl – but things are not what they seem. She can hear ultrasound, pick out a scent from a mile away and see in the dark. She’s faster and stronger than she appears, her senses are razor-sharp – and every full moon she has to lock her parents in the cellar. Maddy is a wolfblood. The show is set in a world where wolfbloods have lived amongst us for centuries, disguising their abilities and blending in. When new boy Rhydian turns up at school her world gets a lot more complicated...
Damian Kavanagh, Controller, CBBC, commissioned the programme. He said: “We’re always looking for programmes which bring something new to the channel for our audience to enjoy, and Wolfblood is a really exciting concept and one I believe will capture the imagination of our viewers. CBBC has always had a strong record of producing acclaimed children’s dramas and with such a strong team working on this show, I can’t wait to see the end result.”
“We’ve filmed in the North East many times, including most recently for the Tracy Beaker Returns series, and it’s great to be back – we’re looking forward to getting started!” added Gina Cronk, Executive Producer of Wolfblood.
Wolfblood is a co-production between CBBC and ZDF/ZDFE.
