There is little doubt that fans are already excited about the Teen Wolf movie. However, it looks like original series creator Jeff Davis is hyped up about the spin-off show Wolf Pack. Davis is hyping up the new series that will feature Buffy the Vampire Slayer lead Sarah Michelle Gellar in a mysterious new role.

Jeff Davis was interviewed for the latest issue of SFX magazine and he revealed that Wolf Pack is a completely different project from the Teen Wolf movie (via Gamesradar). However, it will still feature werewolves and possibly other supernatural creatures.

“I know that everybody gets confused by it, but I always say, 'Nobody thinks Twilight is in the same universe as Interview With The Vampire,'" Davis said. "There can be two werewolf shows that exist in separate spaces. It’s funny because one of the things we did was consciously try and do things differently with Wolf Pack."

He further explained that the new show is more mature.

"I said, 'I don’t want to do the same show. I want to do something more adult, a little bit extreme in places. Not necessarily darker, but a little bit more sophisticated in terms of themes.' Teen Wolf was very comic book. It had a real sense of humor… not that Wolf Pack doesn’t have a sense of humor, but it’s not as comedic as Teen Wolf," Davis said.

So what can we expect in Wolf Pack? Davis is understandably excited about Sarah Michelle Gellar's involvement in the show and shared some details about how she was cast in the series.

"The conversations were me saying, 'Sarah Michelle Gellar? We are never going to get Sarah Michelle Gellar,'" he recalled. "'She hasn’t done a show like this in years. There is no way she’s going to jump into this again knowing the legacy of Buffy and that she was the star of one of the best genre shows ever.' Then we met and we clicked. She really liked the script. I’m just as surprised as anybody else that she said yes."

The Teen Wolf film and Wolf Pack will both premiere on Paramount+ on January 27, 2023.
