Wolfblood FAQ

Welcome to the new updated Wolfblood FAQ! 

Last updated March 2021.

Questions about – Season Six

Will there be a sixth season?

It’s been over three years since we finished work on season five, and CBBC haven’t shown any sign of interest in commissioning more episodes. So effectively, no, Wolfblood has been cancelled and there won’t be another season.

Could there be another season at some point in the future?

In theory? Yes, of course. CBBC could decide to ask for another season at any time. But right now, they show no signs of doing so…

 

Questions about – Season Five

When will season five be on television?

In the UK, from 27th February 2017 to 1st May 2017. Episodes are available on iPlayer for a month after transmission.

Who’s writing season five?

Wolfblood veterans Matt Sinclair and Neil Jones will be returning, and we’ll be joined by new arrivals Victoria Asare-Archer, Ed Aldridge, and Simon Underwood. Additionally, actress and writer Michelle Gayle (who plays Imara) will be writing an episode.

I’ll be writing four episodes, and everyone else one each, giving us a ten episode season this year.

Who’s in the cast for season five?

As for season four, our lead characters will be Jana, TJ, Matei, Emilia, Selina and Katrina. Plus many other familiar faces, of course…

Will Maddy, Rhydian, Shannon and Tom return to season five? 

The actors who played those roles are too busy to return right now – they’re either studying, or acting in other projects. They’ll always be a huge part of our Wolfblood universe, and who knows, they might return at some point… But not for the fifth season.

Why don’t you just cast new actors and actress to play those characters?

We don’t recast major roles. That’s never convincing, and it’s insulting to the original cast as well as the new cast. Actors aren’t interchangeable objects that can be swapped like light bulbs.

We have occasionally recast very minor roles when it was unavoidable (usually because an actor became unavailable at very short notice), but we would never do it with a major role.

What about Maddy, Rhydian, Shannon and Tom  – can we find out what’s happening to them?

CBBC have produced a terrific webcomic, by Rik Hoskin & Tom Waterhouse, which bridges the gap between seasons 3 and 4 and tells you what Maddy, Rhydian, Tom and Shannon are up to ‘offscreen’. Start reading it here http://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/games/wolfblood-new-moon-rising  (Please note this can only be accessed from within the UK.)

Beyond that… to be honest, we’re deliberately not making any decisions about where the characters go and what they do next. There’s always the possibility that there will be spin-off books, or even a movie – and if those happen, whoever’s writing them will want a free hand to decide what those characters are doing with their lives.

Questions about: where and when you can see Wolfblood

I live in [insert name of country], when will I be able to see Wolfblood on TV or on Netflix?

Unfortunately, there’s no point in contacting me to ask about transmission dates for your country, because I don’t get involved with any of that. The TV channel showing Wolfblood makes those decisions, not me. I often don’t know the show’s on in any given country until after it’s begun showing.

If you know which channel it’s going to be on in your country (in many countries, it will be the Disney Channel),  contact that channel directly, and they should be able to give you an answer.

If you’re watching on Netflix, then obviously, contact Netflix. (Please note, Wolfblood is only available on US Netflix, not Netflix in the UK.)

And of course, the more people who contact the channel about Wolfblood, thus proving it has lots of fans, the more likely they are to keep showing it!

Where can I watch Wolfblood online?

If you live in the UK, you can watch episodes on the BBC’s iPlayer service. They’re usually available for a month after transmission (and when the show is repeated, they go back onto iPlayer for a month).

You can now buy seasons 3 to 5 for download from the BBC Store https://store.bbc.com/wolfblood . Presumably seasons 1 & 2 will also be available at some point (but you’ll need to contact BBC Store, not me, with any enquiries about that).

If you live outside the UK, I’m afraid iPlayer won’t work for you, and you’ll have to wait for the show to be shown by your local broadcaster. In the US, individual episodes are available to buy on iTunes, and are also on US Netflix.

Any Wolfblood episodes copied to YouTube or similar services will be removed and the poster’s account terminated, so be sensible, don’t take the risk…

But why shouldn’t I watch pirated copes of Wolfblood online? No harm done, right?

Wrong. Completely and utterly wrong.

In order to make future seasons of Wolfblood, we need the money that Disney and other broadcasters pay us for the rights to show the current seasons. If people can watch pirated copies on the web, they won’t watch it when it’s on TV, meaning the viewing figures go down and the broadcasters won’t buy it any more – so there’ll be no more money for us to make new episodes. And that means no more Wolfblood, ever.

Even if you claim you’re going to watch the show online and when it’s on TV, the availability of pirated copies will put broadcasters off buying those seasons in the first place. No broadcaster wants to pay money for something that’s already been splashed all over the internet.

So, if you actually care about Wolfblood, you should be avoiding people who illegally post it on the internet, not supporting them.

What about the motion comic on the CBBC website? It says I can only read it if I live in the UK.

Yes, like the rest of CBBC’s website content, you can only access it from the UK.

Questions about: the show, the cast, and the production process

Where can I find out who plays which roles/who wrote or directed an episode/ who the designer or composer or DOP etc is?

Best place for finding out about the cast and crew of any film or TV show is imdb.com. Everyone involved with Wolfblood to date is listed at

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2321596/fullcredits?ref_=tt_ov_st_sm

Which awards has Wolfblood been nominated for/ won?

Wolfblood won the Royal Television Society award for Best Children’s Drama in 2013 (and was nominated again in 2014 and 2015). At the Children’s BAFTAs, Bobby Lockwood won Best Performer in 2013, and I won Best Writer in 2014.

It has also been nominated for two RTS North-East awards, a Broadcast award, the Prix Jeunesse, a Banff Television Festival award and five other Children’s BAFTAs in 2013, 2014 and 2015. The season three writing team won the Children’s Writing award at the British Screenwriters Awards 2015.

What is the theme song from Wolfblood? Can I buy the soundtrack?

Seasons 1-3:  it’s A Promise That I Keep, music by Andy Price, lyrics by Klause White, performed by Lisa Knapp.

Season 4-5: it’s Running With The Wolves, by Aurora. It’s due for release as a single in April 2016.

What’s the song used in [insert name of episode]?

Music is chosen by the sound editing department, who know a lot more about all kinds of music than I do! And the instrumental music in the show is written for the show by composer Andy Price. If you have any questions about the instrumental music, you can contact Andy via his website – http://movingimagemusic.com

However, since 90% of music questions are about the track used in ‘Maddy Cool’ – many fans seem to think it’s Sunshine by Toni Cataldi.

How did you come up with the idea for Wolfblood, and how did it get commissioned?

I speak at length about that here:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/writersroom/posts/Wolfblood

Do you use real wolves when filming the show?

No. The wolves are computer-animated by our special effects company (Trixter, for seasons 1-3, and Jellyfish for season 4 and 5).

How long does it take to film a season of Wolfblood?

Usually about three months. Then there are many more months of editing, special effects, adding music…

How long does it take to film an episode of Wolfblood?

That’s hard to answer, because we don’t start at the beginning and work to the end: all the scenes in one location are filmed first, then all the scenes in another, and so on.

If we’re filming in a location – say, in the school canteen – we’ll shoot the canteen-based scenes from two or three different episodes in the same day, to save time. The most time-comsuming (and therefore expensive) part of filming is moving people and equipment from location to location, so we arrange filming so we move as little as possible.

At a guess, it takes between five and six working days to shoot an episode, depending on how many moves between locations, how many stunts, and how many complicated scenes there are.

Is there a real village called Stoneybridge? Or a real school called Bradlington High?

No. See the next question…

Where is Wolfblood filmed?

The village we use as Stoneybridge is Blanchlands, in Northumbria. The school, the woods, and most of the other locations are within a few miles of there. And city locations, such as those in season 4 and 5, are filmed  in nearby Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.

How do you do the yellow eyes?

Mostly contact lenses, sometimes CGI (when we actually see them change).

Are you ever going to feature vampires in Wolfblood? What about other supernatural creatures?

Definitely no vampires! Vampires bore me: they’re whiny and self-obsessed. I don’t see what they would add to the show.

At the moment, we have no plans to feature any other supernatural creatures in Wolfblood. We’d rather do one thing well than throw in all kinds of creatures and over-complicate the show.

Questions about: DVDs and merchandise

Will there be a DVD release? 

At the moment, there are three sets of DVD releases:

There are  UK DVDs (Region 2) of seasons one to five, available now. In the UK, you can also buy digital downloads from BBC Store.

Season 1-5 DVDs have also been released in Germany, and are available in many other countries via Amazon and other online retailers. And seasons one to five are available on DVD in the US (region 1), available from all the usual retailers.

What about merchandise?

A range of merchandise is slowly being rolled out. Here’s what’s available so far:

A one-off Wolfblood magazine was released in October 2014. You may still be able to order copies, for delivery to the UK or overseas, from http://titan.subscribeonline.co.uk/Products/totally

Wolfblood posters in several different designs are available from a number of online retailers. Google “Wolfblood poster” and you’ll get plenty of options.

A Wolfblood mug is available from gb.posters.com, and probably from elsewhere as well. There’s a 2015 calendar,  and children’s pyjamas, produced by Fashion UK, available on Amazon.co.uk and elsewhere.

And inevitably, there are various items of fan-designed unofficial merchandise available on various sites.

Are there Wolfblood books?

Novelisations (book versions of the TV episodes) of seasons 1 – 4 are out now, and can be bought online and from all the normal booksellers.

Will there ever be a Wolfblood movie?

There has been some discussion of a movie, but so far, there are no firm plans for one. If that changes, I’ll update the FAQ.

Questions about: appearing in Wolfblood, writing for Wolfblood, and careers in the television industry

How can I audition to be in Wolfblood? or appear as an extra? 

You need to have previous acting experience, and an agent, to have a chance of appearing in any TV show. Shooting takes place on a very tight schedule and a very limited budget, and we have to be sure that everyone we employ knows their job and can do it with the minimum of supervision. And yes, that does make life hard for young actors starting out, but we have to do what’s best for the show.

If you have an agent, they’ll know how to arrange an audition for you. And if you don’t – well, your first task is to get an agent!

And remember, acting is a long game, and setting your heart on appearing in one particular show probably isn’t wise. Concentrate on creating a career for yourself, not just getting a role on Wolfblood.

Please note – I get a lot of messages from people telling me at great length how brilliant they are and what their drama teacher says about them and how many plays they’ve been in… Sorry, but you’re telling the wrong person. I don’t make the casting decisions. That’s the job of the casting director, and I stand back and let them do their job.

How do I become an actor? And how do I get an agent? Any tips?

Obviously I’m a writer, not an actor, so I have no direct experience of this, but I asked around and this is what I was told…

Join a youth theatre or a Saturday drama class. Look for ones that put on plays, not just song-and-dance showcases. Join an amateur dramatics group: they’re often eager for younger members. Check out local colleges: film students often need actors for their short films. Basically, find any opportunity you can to perform in public.

Once you have some experience, you can invite agents to come see you perform, and they may agree to become your agent. The first few will probably say no, so keep going. There’s good advice on choosing an agent here – http://www.dramaclasses.biz/how-to-get-an-acting-agent-children

And bear in mind: in order to succeed, you need to work harder and be more dedicated than the thousands of other youngsters who also want to act. You’ve going to have to take the initiative, search for opportunities – build your career yourself, not sit around waiting for a golden opportunity to fall into your lap.

You’re also going to have to work your way up from the bottom. That means playing roles you don’t enjoy, in crummy theatres or unpaid student films, providing your own costumes and paying for your own meals. There’s precious little glamour at any level of the industry, and none whatsoever when you’re starting out! But if you’re dedicated and determined enough, you might just make it…

I live outside Britain – do I have any chance of getting a role in the series?

Honestly? That’s not going to happen. Like any other profession, you can’t just turn up in the UK and start working: you have to have the legal right to live here and work here. Unless you have UK or EU citizenship, or some other legal right to work in the UK, it would be against the law for us to cast you in the show. So you should concentrate on building an acting career in your own country.

I’m interested in writing for TV: can I read one of the Wolfblood scripts?

The script for season 1 episode 10, The Call Of The Wild,  is available to download from the BBC’s writersroom website: go to

http://www.bbc.co.uk/writersroom/scripts/wolfblood-s1-ep10

Writersroom also has a lot of great information, inspiring stories and details of writing competitions and opportunities, so it’s a good place to get started writing.

I’m a writer – how would I go about getting a job writing Wolfblood?

If you’re an experienced writer with previous TV or film credits, get your agent to contact CBBC in the usual way.

If you don’t have an agent or previous experience, your best way to get noticed is via BBC Writers Room, who hold  ‘open calls’ for scripts by new writers every few months. If you send in your script and they like it, they might recommend you to write for Wolfblood (or some other show). Follow the directions on their site http://www.bbc.co.uk/writersroom

How does an episode of Wolfblood get written? What’s the process?

Check out this post

https://debbiemoon.wordpress.com/2013/02/05/how-a-wolfblood-script-is-written/

I have ideas for episodes/ plot lines you could use in future seasons/ Wolfblood fan fiction: can I send them to you? 

I’ve tried being polite about this, and people are ignoring it, so let me make this very clear. YOU MUST NOT SEND ME PLOT IDEAS, SUGGESTIONS, OR EVEN WOLFBLOOD FAN FICTION. EVER. If people keep doing so, I will have to close down this site.

Writers and production companies have to be very careful that they don’t lay themselves open to accusations of stealing ideas. There have been cases with other shows where fans have sued the show for ‘stealing’ ideas from their fan fiction, or from episode ideas they’ve sent in without being asked. The best defence we have have against that is never to read any ideas submitted by anyone outside the show.

So none of us are allowed to read any suggestions, ideas, theories, fan fiction, or anything related to Wolfblood. It doesn’t matter if you promise not to sue – we still can’t read it. It doesn’t matter if you say it’s just for fun – we still can’t read it. It doesn’t matter what you say – we still can’t read it! So please don’t send anything, via this blog or anywhere else.

Questions about: fan mail, contacting the cast

Where can I send fan mail to the cast?

If you send it to  [Actor’s name], Wolfblood, CBBC, Bridge House, BBC MediaCity UK, Salford, M50 2QH,  it will be passed on to them from there. Alternatively, you could probably find out their agent on Google and send it to the agent’s office – it might well reach them faster that way.

Can you pass on a message to the cast for me?

Unfortunately not, because of the sheer number of people who ask. I get asked this 250 – 300 times a year, and not only would I never remember all those messages, it would take days for me to recite them all to the cast!

So how can I contact the cast?

Apart from the fan mail address, above? They’re all on Twitter, some have Instagram accounts… You’ll probably be able to find them on various social media.

Questions about: previous episodes, characters and backstory

Can wolfbloods have human children, and vice versa? What if a wolfblood and a human have children together?

Being a wolfblood is genetic, so if a wolfblood and a human had children together, the child would either inherit the wolfblood gene and be a wolfblood, or inherit the human gene and be human. And theoretically, I suppose a gene could lie dormant and then manifest in a future generation, so in theory, someone could unexpectedly have a wolfblood child…

What happens to the characters’ clothes when they transform?

CBBC rules forbid us to show the characters naked, or even imply that they’re naked offscreen. So we have to pretend that the clothes somehow vanish with them and then reappear. Of course it makes no logical sense, really, but we have no other option.

In the third season episode “The Dark Of The Rune”, all Wolfbloods in the world fall into a coma due to a mysterious comet. Our heroes find a solution – but what about Maddy and her parents in Canada, and all the other Wolfbloods worldwide? What happened to them?

I didn’t write that episode, but my understanding is that the solution our characters find puts a kind of ‘shield’ around the comet, cutting off its effects all across the planet. So basically, everyone else woke up at the same time Rhydian and Jana did.

Do you write differently for children than for adults? Do you ever think “Oh, we can’t do that in a children’s show”?

Not really, no. Any story you can tell to adults, you can tell to children. You just tell it a little differently. Over the years, we’ve dealt with parental abandonment, bullying, emotional abuse within families, the care system, and Shannon being wrongly sent to a psychiatrist – all pretty serious topics. it’s a just a question of how you present the subject within the story.

How did Maddy’s parents meet? And where do you imagine other wolfbloods meeting each other in general?

I would think settled Wolfbloods find ways to meet up – secret events, perhaps? Every community has its big events and rituals. As for how Daniel and Emma met… well, maybe one day we’ll find out!

Do you believe in people transforming into wolves/ werewolves in real life?

I believe in things we have evidence for, and so far, there’s no evidence for werewolves or anything like them. However, the idea is a great way to explore the dark side that we all have, and how we choose to deal with it…

I’ve noticed that Maddy and other characters often say ‘us’ instead of ‘me’. Is that the local dialect?

Yes, in the Northumbria/ Newcastle area, it’s perfectly normal to use ‘us’ instead of ‘me’.

What’s the language spoken by the wild wolfbloods?

That’s Welsh. This particular wild pack came originally from Wales, but were disturbed by human activity and relocated somewhere north of Stoneybridge  (probably the Highlands of Scotland, but wild Wolfbloods aren’t exactly experts in geography…)

What’s your favourite episode? Your favourite character?

People keep asking me these questions, and weirdly, they’re impossible to answer. When you write something, no part of it, no individual character, is your favourite. You love every part of it for different reasons.

Which character is most like you?

None of the characters is exactly like me, but I suppose the closest to me as a teenager is Shannon…

Questions about: leaving comments and questions on this site

I posted a comment in the comments section, below, and it hasn’t appeared yet!

I moderate every comment before it becomes visible to the public. I might do that quickly, or I might not do it for several hours. So be patient…

What are the do’s and don’ts for leaving questions here?

– DO state your question clearly and simply. I get a lot of vague questions like  “When will it show here?”  (“It” being which season? “Here” being where?)  So try to state your question clearly and briefly…

– DO be realistic about whether I can actually do what you’re asking (let alone whether I should!)  I’ve had people ask me to get them an acting agent, help them direct their first movie, help them get their novel published, and even get them a date with a member of the cast – none of which I can do!

Bearing all of that in mind, feel free to leave your question in the comments section below, and I’ll answer it as soon as I can…

    Your wolfblood shows are AWESOME!!!!! I have been watching it since I was 8 and am 11 now but I still love it!!! Where did you get your inspiration????? Its sad to hear they canceled the show because you are an amazing writer and the show is awesome. I am aware that the show has been canceled but do you think there is a way to change there minds???? THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!!!

    • Julia Helman says:

      Hehe I mean buffy is kinda getting rebooted so maybe CBBC will get some inspiration and motivation!

    • William says:

      Could you potentially reboot the show but upload it outside of cbbc
      I know cbbc has lots of filming resources but there might not be any other options

      Also do you think that mabey after a few more years cbbc might decide to continue wolf blood??

    • Mason King says:

      When you wrote the scripts where did you get the inspiration from? Personally wolfblood has made an impact on my life and has inspired me to get into film making and script writing but it all seems very hard so could you enlighten me on how you become one?
      Also would you ever be on the set of wolfblood when they filmed or were you mostly at home.
      Last question is why did some episodes get written by other people instead of you?

  2. justideas70 says:

    Hi, Debbie! I just wanted to say that I miss wolfblood so much. You did a great job creating this wonderful show, and I hope to see another show of yours on tv soon. Best of luck!

  3. Richard says:

    Wow the show wolfblood is amazing and I’m so sad to see it not being produced any more I literally just found out about a week ago and seen all the seasons I found it on hulu. I don’t know what to say I’m 23 and it was interesting. It so entertaining I have no other words to say than Thank you. I have no clue what to do now. Hi from America. I really hope they reboot this show or someone else buys the rights

  4. Sophie P says:

    Which University did Dr Whitewood go to when she was younger?
    Was it University of Northumbria or different one?
    Is there any background information about Dr Whitewood that wasn’t mentioned in show?
    This for Fanfiction and she is my favourite character 😊

    • debbiemoon says:

      You know, we never really created much background information for Dr. Whitewood? So basically, you can make up anything you like…

      • Wolfblood fan says:

        Is it possible that maddy and her parents could have met gerwyn during their short time in segolia?
        For how long can wolfbloods travel in human form and wolf form before they need to rest?Hrs days weeks. Can wolfbloods have several children at once such as 5 or six similar to wolves?

      • debbiemoon says:

        Berwyn was an accountant, and wouldn’t have had much to do with visiting Wolfbloods, but it’s possible they bumped into each other, yes.
        In an emergency, about a day? A little longer in wolf form.
        No, childbearing is more akin to humans: twins and triplets sometimes, but rarely any more.

      • Sophie P says:

        So I can make up a back story for Dr Whitewood then as there is nothing really much about her?

  5. danae says:

    I miss wolfblood! I know the show has been cancelled and all, but I really wish that there was something that us as fans can do to bring it back…. :/

  6. Shadow Ember says:

    Funny enough I like a lot of British/Canadian drama series. I’m from the US. Im an adult and have enjoyed shows like Orphan Black and Lost Girl. I borrowed Wolfblood from the library all 5 seasons at once without realizing it was more for early teens but I must say it was one of my favorite shows. It kept me in suspense like the other shows mentioned. I finished all 5 seasons in 5 days. I’m sure you have an adult fanbase as well even if most wont admit it. But the show was amazing. Would like to see more like this.

  7. Sophie P says:

    Why did Madoc hate Dr Whitewood? Katrina was also there but Madoc didn’t seem to take any notice of her. Why direct all of his hate of humans at Dr Whitewood?
    What Could Dr Whitewood possibly done to Madoc for to insult her like he did in ‘Wild at Heart’?

    I have been wondering about this for a while.

    • debbiemoon says:

      Dr. Whitewood spent a long time researching Wolfbloods, and wild Wolfbloods don’t like people poking around in their business…

      • Sophie P says:

        Ok Thank you. What made you redeem Dr Whitewood’s character because she is brilliant and my favourite character in the show.

      • debbiemoon says:

        I just thought there was more we could do with her – and having a scientist with a lab is always useful for storylines!

      • Sophie P says:

        Thank you for creating and redeeming Dr Whitewood 🙂 she defiantly taught me to never give up and became a brilliant role model to me 🙂

      • Antonio Ellis says:

        debbie can you please come up with something to bring wolfblood back

  8. Julia Helman says:

    Hello!
    It’s been quite a while since I like spammed you on here! Always been a wolfblood lover at heart- that show was my life for five years to the point my parents were thinking about getting professional health due to my obsession (I pointed out I felt like Shannon in wolfsbane lol) but I guess when you are searching for an identity and feel lost in a world and you see belonging and people being part of something and seeing a pack- having secrets- it reflected my mental health and my sexuality- it helped me accept my sexuality and that honestly saved my life. I have always felt different and outsider like rhydian lol so I connected with it in so many ways xx (plus my little 14 year old gay heart fell effortlessly in love with Leona Vaughn and Aimee kelly that it was fated for me to be obsessed 😂)
    I haven’t watched WB for nearly two years. I always associate it with my past. Wolfblood was such an intense time like I don’t talk sbout it anymore. I took down hundreds of printed out pictures I found from google that were taped to my wall and pushed my merch to one side… I feel ashamed and like I bury the four years of obsessing because it meant so much to me I don’t wanna accept it was real if that makes sense? After a while I got distracted tho heeh- I mean I fell in love with sarah Michelle gellar on scooby doo (I have a younger sister and who doesn’t love scooby doo?!) and decided to look into buffy. Wolfblood is the teen angst version of it I feel! It is a trademark in TV and the character development is just as good as spikes from dark and cool vampire to a one that realises he has some sort of soul and love for a slayer hehe.
    Wolfblood and buffy are my biggest loves (and tv show bones which has angel in it weirdly enough!) because of the depth and richness and beauty of tv.
    You creating wolfblood honestly changed my life.
    You helped me deal with depression
    You gave me hope and life
    Everyday
    Every single day
    I couldn’t have survived without wolfblood and I owe it all to you.
    You are a true life saver.
    Must admit I think you’re absolutely fantastic and wonderful- I mean I don’t usually stalk people but when someone likes comics and sci-fi and is stunning and made your favourite tv show ever like you can’t help but appreciate them to a high level with a lot of respect!
    I hope you reply! I am a writer myself (especially poetry) and am thinking of writing a novel (well I know it will fail but like who doesn’t wanna be the next Agatha Christie?! One mind can dream x).
    But most of all I don’t just see you are the creator of WB but you’re a human being and ordinary person just with a bit extra on the side (as Maddy would put it lol) and I think you’ll never be forgotten and you are always going to be appreciated it (earning ten years later I may ask for an autograph cuz like you are honestly my hero!!)
    (Apologies if sent this beforehand just I am typing on my phone (hate technology lol) and it died on me and I’m not taking me chances!)

    • debbiemoon says:

      Thank you so much for being brave enough to say all this. I’m so glad the show was helpful to you. So much of it came out of how I felt as a lesbian teenager in a small town, and how every teenager, however ‘normal’ feels like a misfit… And if it inspires you to be a writer too, all the better!

      • Julia Helman says:

        I think writers get inspiration somewhere and I’m lucky enough to get it from your show! Like not the plot lines but to see the nature of relationships and how rounded characters can be with is fantastic!
        I defo agree- teenage life is sbout finding yourself in an adult world and when you are finding that so many people feel like a misfit- waiting to find their group and belonging of some sort in the world 🙂
        I cannot speak of your experiences and feelings but I am very isolated where I live (in the moors ironically enough haha) so identity was stressed even more when I grew up and WB taught me you never stop learning or finding yourself… for me it was hard being gay growing up as although times were changing for the better even now there is still this reinforced heteronormativity and like WBs, finding others like you is where you feel safe and can be who you are without hate- but also humans and WBs- like everyone can live together and no one is as powerful- same with sexualities- WB shows equality creates peace! (Never realised how political WB actually was haha). I think that’s why WB is so appealing- it’s a beautifully crafted world you can escape into where you feel like you belong because the real world seems scary and unknown yet it teaches you that’s its okay to be afraid.. it’s okay to be you (in a way the viewer is like Aran or Ceri hehe). Even now I prefer books and films to reality because the adult world feels so much bigger!

  9. Wow, I noticed how many comments recently have started with (or included somewhere) that they were returning on the FAQ to talk to you as old fans who used to come by, and I had to be a part of this flood of reminiscers because I miss wolfblood a lot. And I used to be here a lot XD Since I last posted here, I’ve showed my boyfriend the show, and he loved it! He even said he was tempted to watch it without me, but I told him he had to wait to watch it together. He got to season 3 before getting sad that Maddy left and pulled away from it a little. I haven’t had the heart to tell him Aimee Kelly’s decision yet, I think it’d make him really sad.

    My Wolfblood roleplay/creative writing forum is still up and running too; I didn’t know if you’d like to hear that or would find it mundane information but I wanted to say it just in case. I wish some of these old fans of the show from here would join and write with me as some of them seem like they miss the show just as much as I do. The forum is quiet, and not many members are around any more, but I really want it to be alive with fans of the show as much as ever. So I hope nobody here has ever come across it and decided against it because it’s been quiet and inactive, when I’m just as passionate about making it last now as I was when I started it. Many of the original members were just a friend of a member who had watched the show, rather than viewers, and I really hope some more lovers of the show find us soon.

    Sorry, that did get off topic. I just wanted to tell you that my forum is still going and that my boyfriend also watched the show, and despite being the type of person who you’d probably assume wouldn’t like it, (he’s older than the target age like I am and thought it was such a childish show to watch when I first convinced him to try it) nobody expected him to enjoy it, least of all himself, but he absolutely adored it. I think that’s the magic of wolfblood, that it’s so much more than it promises to be. It relates to the real world in so many ways and is so much more than a show for teenagers. I do miss the show a lot, and I just wanted to post again to let you know that I’m still a massive fan of your work 🙂

    • debbiemoon says:

      I’m so glad you still enjoy the show! Yes, it’s definitely a show for all ages, as the range of fans posting here proves…

      • I definitely agree 🙂 I can’t wait until my boyfriend eventually gets to the later seasons as I think he’ll like Matei 🙂 but I really don’t want to break his heart about Maddy and Rhydian either, Rhydian by far is his favourite character and I’m not spoiling anything until he’s worked it out for himself, even if it has been a good few months.

      • Jake Slaker says:

        can you not send me anymore messeges. 

      • debbiemoon says:

        No one here is sending you ‘messages’. This is a FAQ site for fans to ask things about Wolfblood. If you post things here, I’ll respond to them (and yes, WordPress may notify you that you’ve been answered). If you don’t want responses, then… don’t post here?

  10. Mikaela says:

    Hello!

    Thank you so much for creating Wolfblood i stumbled across the trailer for the first series on cbbc after watching another programme and i love anything to do with wolves/werewolves so i had to try it and i was not disappointed 🙂

    I do fall into the category of adult fan and i am not ashamed to admit it the writing was amazing and the issues that were dealt with speak to a lot of people, we all feel like we dont fit in (like myself) or wish we could fit in.

    I was absolutely gutted to hear wolfblood would not get a series 6 as the last episode of series 5 held so much potential to show how humans and wolfbloods would work and interact with each other and how people could tap into their wolf self.

    I hold out some hope that wolfblood will be picked up (we can dream) maybe a few years down the line and even with a different cast and new characters until then i rewatch my dvds and read the books 🙂

    Is there any plan to release series 5 as a novelisation to complete the set?

    I wish you and the cast old and new the very best in your next and present projects and look forward to seeing new ventures

    I think ive rambled enough now i just wanted to express my gratitude for such a wonderful show

  11. James says:

    Who is your favourite character you created in you series?

  12. Yasin says:

    What new projects have you been working on? I’d really love to see your other creations, and have you gotten any new updates on Wolfblood?

    Also, it seems like Bobby Lockwood has erased all of his social media accounts, do you have any information about what has happened?

    thanks❤️

    • debbiemoon says:

      I can’t talk about any of my new projects until they’re ready to film, unfortunately.
      No, there won’t be any updates about Wolfblood. It’s cancelled, that’s it – at least for a few more years.
      I don’t know what Bobby’s been up to. I haven’t seen him since shortly after he left the show…

  13. Oren says:

    Hi Debbie love the show and all grew up with it and currently been watching it again for the few years and it was quite sad to see this go hope for the best of you in the future.

    Got 2 questions for you about Wolfblood,
    IF season 6 will get renewal from CBBC are you guys going to finish off the series there?
    Are we going to see any more wolfblood content such as Lore, videos etc. that are not related to the show.

    Thanks so much for wolfblood!

  14. Yasin says:

    another quick question;

    would it be technically possible for you to write the sixth season of wolfblood and publish it for fans to read how it continues/ends? or would you need the permission of CBBC because they co-own it?
    also, when writing scenes in wolfblood, do you take suggestions from the directors about how the storyline goes or do you write it all yourself?
    I know its been about 2 years since the show ended, but do you have any hints on how it would have continued?

    thank you 🙂

    • debbiemoon says:

      Permission or not, I simply wouldn’t be able to spend months writing something that I’m not getting paid for. How would I pay my bills – and what about all the other things I’ve been commissioned to write? 🙂
      In television, the directors don’t get involved until the scripts are already written. I work with the producers and script editors instead, and of course the other writers, exchanging ideas and making the show as good as we can.
      I don’t usually plan what will happen in a season until it’s commissioned, so no, I haven’t given it any real thought. Obviously I would follow up on the hints in the final scene, but beyond that…

      • Sophie P says:

        What were the hints in the last scene of Season 5? I have watched the last episode but I’m just curious.

      • debbiemoon says:

        Humans being descended from Wolfbloods; a human girl showing signs of eolas in the final scene.

      • Antonio Ellis says:

        I know that we have been saying this for a long time now but wolfblood is the best show ever, so can you please try to bring it back

    • Aatahua says:

      Hey amazing job on wolf blood but I was hoping to see another season or two plz

  15. Moony says:

    I’m 14 now and I remember watching Wolf blood when I was ten and now I found all the seasons for free and I have binge watched them 2 times now! I miss Maddy and Rhydian so much, and I hope that they’d make some sort of explanation about what happened to Maddy when she left and Rhydian… The first too seasons were so much better than the rest. If only they’d continue making it..

  16. Iris says:

    Hi! I absolutely love Wolf Blood and especially Maddy and Rhydian, I’m definitely not the only one hoping for the series to continue :)) But I have one question, because the cbbc youtube channel doesn’t allow comments on their videos I couldn’t ask what’s the name of the song that’s played whenever the wolfbloods are wilding out happily? I really love the song and since it has no lyrics and isn’t the theme or anything I couldn’t find it anywhere even though I have tried to search for it for so long. I was hoping someone knows…

    • debbiemoon says:

      As I say in the FAQ, all the instrumental music was written specifically for the series by our composer, Andy Price. So that piece probably doesn’t have a name as such…

  17. Scott says:

    In season 5, did the chip that was placed into Wolfbloods suppress their wolf form, or did it remove the wolf after a certain number of days, similar to the de-wolfer that Kincaid made?

    Also, if Meinir had not left Segolia and continued Dr., Whitewood’s treatments, would she have kept her wolf or still lost it?

    All 5 seasons were fantastic and with each season, the storylines just got better and better. It’s a pity that CBBC didn’t allow it to go any further. Thanks for a great series.

  18. Scott says:

    Sorry, but I had another question.

    Segolia seemed to be obsessed with sending Wolfbloods that broke the rules to Romania. What was there obsession with Romania exactly? Why was it their spot of choice?

    Thanks and have a great day!

    • debbiemoon says:

      It was only Matei and Emilia, because they had distant relatives there. Or was there someone else I’ve forgotten?

      • Scott says:

        At the beginning of Season 5, Before TJ was going to go meet with Hartington later that night, I recall TJ talking to Selena about what could possible go wrong, and I remember her saying “Romania” to him in the conversation. When she said that, I thought she was indicating that TJ might get himself sent to Romania if Segolia found out what he was up to..

        Thanks for your answers. As I said before, I loved the show and regretted seeing it end so soon.

        I wish you the best in your future projects and hope they all work out well for you.

  19. Alex says:

    Is there any new on a season 6???? I’m desperate for the show to return. It’s been a huge prt of my life since I saw the first episode and I’m not ready for it to be over. Is there any way for Wolfblood to have a season 6?
    Much love
    Alex

  20. Someone says:

    Based on the above reply, according to IMDb (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2321596/fullcredits):

    Leona Vaughan (Jana) was in 2 episodes of Cops and Monsters in 2017IMDb

    These lot have been in varying amounts of shows, shorts and films since:
    Mark Fleischmann (Mr Jeffries)
    Bobby Lockwood (Rhydian Morris)
    Kedar Williams-Stirling (Tom Okanawe)
    Louisa Connolly-Burnham (Shannon Kelly)
    Rachel Teate (Kara)
    Jonathan Raggett (Jimi)
    Aimée Kelly (Maddy Smith)
    Jack Brett Anderson (Matei)
    Sydney Wade (Emilia)
    Angela Lonsdale (Emma)
    Michelle Gayle (Imara)
    Marcus Garvey (Daniel)
    Rukku Nahar (Selina)
    Letty Butler (Dr. Whitewood)
    Siwan Morris (Ceri)
    Clara Onyemere (Miss Parrish)
    Natasha Goulden (Robyn)
    Decided to stop here before it got to characters more obscure

    And since the show’s over, will you look at fan made videos, stories, etc?

  21. James says:

    Hi Debbie,
    I live in Australia and have been a big fan of yours since I can remember! I inspire to be you. I am only in high school and have a passion for writing stories. Could you give me any tips so I could improve? Wolfblood is and forever will be my favourite show! Have you written any books on the series?
    Much appreciated,
    Belle

    • debbiemoon says:

      If you look around this site, you’ll find a section called “new to writing?” which has lots of advice. Other than that, my advice is: be determined, and write only stories that you love.

      Books: there are the novelisations (episodes in book form), but no other Wolfblood books.

  22. Sophie P says:

    What happened to Dr Whitewood during the events of “Viral” after she came home from the Wild with Jana?

    Also what happened to Dr Whitewood after the video of Jana and the Wild pack wolfing out went viral?

    What did Sweeney say to Dr Whitewood to go through with the Protocol 5 plan because she said “I don’t have a choice TJ”

    • debbiemoon says:

      I expect that, in both cases, she was called in to be interviewed to see what she knew and whether she was involved in leaking the video. But that’s about it.

      I expect that Sweeney had convinced Whitewood that Protocol 5 was the only way to keep the secret, and keep Wolfbloods safe…

  23. Alex says:

    On the wolfblood YouTube. Why can’t england viewers watch all the episodes?! I live in England and it says they’re unavailable for me. Could you possibly make all the episodes available for UK viewers since it’s a British show?

  24. Heckley Panes says:

    Will there ever be a Wolfblood game?
    Something like Stories you play .
    Dont worry about getting sued
    Everything in that game will still be your ideas.
    Thus making it impossible for me to claim having my ideas”stolen” and those games are made by diffrent companies either this means no one has a copyright.

    • debbiemoon says:

      I’m not sure what all that stuff about copyright is about… but no, there are no plans for a Wolfblood game at the moment.

      • Wolfblood fan says:

        Hello, I was what happened to Cadwr and Gwyn parents? Why do they have no pack before meeting jana before in jana bites? How old are they? Are they twins?

      • debbiemoon says:

        Life in the wild is dangerous, alas, so I think we can assume that something happened to their parents. They’re not twins, but I actually can’t find their ages in my files: maybe eleven and ten? Approximately?

  25. Kenneth English says:

    Can i just say, thankyou for making my childhood such a great time and thankyou for wolfblood. It’s always gonna be my fav tv show. I must have researched it about 10 times now altogether and if the BBC to ever contact you for another series I would be so happy. Thankyou 🙂

  26. Carla says:

    Hi Debbie ! Firstly, I love Wolfblood, you did such a great work ! My question is, because i would like to visit all of the locations (Blanchland, the school…) but I would like to visit maddy’s house, could you tell me the address where it was filmed it would be awesome !
    Xoxo
    Carla

  27. Olivia says:

    Hello Debbie ! Hope you’re okay !
    I would like to know where Maddie’house is located ? (In real life) in the center of Blanchland or more in the forest (a bit far away) 🙂
    Thanks for your futur answer !

    • debbiemoon says:

      Out in the countryside.

    • Camelia says:

      Cant you tell us what the name of the little county where the real maddy’s house ? Please I would like to see it from google map !

      • debbiemoon says:

        As I’ve said before, I won’t give out that information.

      • Páris says:

        I’m sorry but can’t u do anything to tell cbbc abt the show, its so annoying that it’s been two years since it finished. Like I don’t watch TV anymore bcuz shows these days r not as gd as it used to be. I miss Wolfblood (been watching since Yr 6)im now 17 and I miss the show, Wolfblood is the reason y I changed from liking wolves to loving(as my favourite animal)them. Could u like plz tell CBBC that shows r boring now(especially kids shows) and us Wolfblood fans want to see the original cast together again in season 6. Thnx for listening we need our pack again

      • debbiemoon says:

        CBBC have made their decision, and won’t change their minds now. But I’m glad you enjoyed the show!

  28. Dani says:

    Hi !
    Where the real house (name of the county) of maddy!
    Thx

  29. Janka says:

    Hello, Ms. Moon

    Is the relationship between Katrina and Robyn solely alpha/subordinate or is the relationship meant to portray romantic feelings as well?

    Much love xx

    • debbiemoon says:

      Very definitely romantic. There were a couple of lines that made that more obvious, but they were cut for time. However, I think it’s still pretty clear…

  30. Genny says:

    I have a question wasn’t there a webisode that talked about the specific ancestors of tame wolfbloods? I know there was the one that talked about Shere Khan but I was sure there was another one…

  31. Adam says:

    I missed Wolfblood so much, and I wish that there will realise that the movie have some meaning to other people, plz bring back Wolfblood.

  32. Ethan B says:

    Will there be another season of Wolfblood any time in the future ?

  33. Ethan B says:

    And couldn’t you ask CBBC to bring it back and see what they say about it because all of us would love to see one last season ?

  34. Ethan B says:

    So Debbie we can basically say there will be no more Wolfblood as it seems ?

  35. Kate says:

    What time do wolf bloods transform on the full moon

  36. John Gordon says:

    I would for you to be honest with me if you were to make a season 6 would you bring it back to the original 4 make character or carry with story as it is and somehow incorporate rhydian, maddy, shannon and tom back into the fold.

    • debbiemoon says:

      If Wolfblood ever did come back, it would have an entirely new cast. The ‘city pack’ actors are in their early to mid-twenties, and the season one cast in their late twenties and early thirties. There’s no way they could play schoolchildren now.

  37. Josie Broun says:

    Does Maddy ever come back in to Wolfblood?

    • debbiemoon says:

      As you can see from the FAQ, Wolfblood was cancelled two years ago, so no, Maddy won’t be coming back.

    • Josie broun says:

      Hi there, I’m just wondering why Jana hasn’t started another wild pack and why she is trying to get a job at Segolia?i really support your decision and I hope I haven’t affended you in any way.
      Can you please tell me why Maddy left when it was all get started?
      Anyway I am a huge fan of Wolfblood and I will not keep bothering you about it
      Thank you for all the information, I’m really glad you can answer my question. No rush.

      • debbiemoon says:

        I think Jana’s motivations in season four are pretty clear from the episodes…
        As I explain in the FAQ, the actress who played Maddy chose to leave at the end of season two, so we had to write the character out.

  38. Ormani says:

    wolfblood was amazing I can’t stop watching the shows over. ive been watching wolfblood for as long as I can remember and I’m 18 now and still love the show. we need a season 6 the show is amazing and we need more of it. plz make more episodes.

  39. Scott says:

    I was just curious if the song “Running With The Wolves” was written specifically for Wolfblood or if it was just an amazing find that fit the show so perfectly.

    Thanks for your time and for a such great series.

  40. Azi MexyWolf says:

    Hi,

    I’m a 34 year old male fan from The States. I’m rewatching the series again. I wondered what the inspiration was for the way wolfbloods acted in human form? As in wolf instincts and urges.

    I also wondered if you had heard of therianthropy, or therians. I am one of these. I am a Mexican wolf therian. I act similar to the way wolfbloods act while in human form when “their wolf comes out”. More info is available here https://www.therian-guide.com/index.php/2-therianthropy

    Thanks again for such a great show, staying true to a real wolf’s manner. The show is one of the best I’ve seen.

    Kind regards,
    Azi MexyWolf

    • debbiemoon says:

      Obviously we spent a lot of time studying how wolves behave, and finding ways for humans to express that. The cast went on a trip to a wolf sanctuary, to observe wolves in semi-wild conditions, too…

  41. Paula says:

    Hello! I love your show! I’ve been watching it since I was nine, I am currently thirteen. Thanks to your show, Bobby Lockwood was my first celebrity crush :). As a younger kid, I just thought of your show as a fantasy series with no depth, really, but as I grew up, from time to time, I thought of certain scenes in the show and assumed the “message” of the show. That is when I started to watch it all over again. I found myself in some of the characters. The series has helped me be whom I wanted to be, it has helped me to be myself.

    But, of course, as any fan, I have questions.

    How come in the first episode Maddy recognised that Rhydian was a wolfblood, but Rhydian didn’t? Was it because Rhydian hasn’t been raised in an environment where there were also wolfbloods, thus Rhydian not developing his abilities?

    I aspire to be a writer someday, to become known for making inspiring books, stories, and novels, but I know it would be hard since I live in the Balkans. You and J.K. Rowling are my biggest role models. Keep up the good work! 🙂

    • debbiemoon says:

      I’m glad you’ve been enjoying Wolfblood!
      Your question: yes, Maddy knows how to recognise another Wolfblood, but Rhydian doesn’t even know that other Wolfbloods exist, let alone how to identify them.
      Good luck with your writing!

  42. Aayah says:

    hey, has there been any plans for a season 7 or was season 6 the last season of wolfblood?

  43. Alex says:

    Hey Debbie !! I’ve been watching wolfblood since it first premiered on CBBC and its still my favourite show and has been since I was like 12 or 13, I’m 20 now and still love it just as much !! Can I ask what made you think of getting Tom and Kay together? At first I thought the ship was a bit odd and random but I now love them !!

    • debbiemoon says:

      Mostly, it was the fact that it was unexpected. And that it wasn’t an earth-shattering soulmate romance. Because sometimes you go out with someone for a while and it doesn’t work out, but you have fun – and actually that’s okay…

  44. Ben Hull says:

    Absolutely love the show, just went back and watched the first two seasons at 17. Was so young when I watched it, was a really big part of my childhood. Just wanted to say thanks. Still made me cry when Maddie left all these years later.

  45. Jessica Beaumont says:

    Hi there, I am 15 years old and when I was a bit younger I would sit down and watch wolfblood but never found out what happened! So, a few days ago I saw this thing on my friend’s story and it was a picture of the wolfblood logo and I saw Maddy on it I got curious! So while in quarantine I have been binge watching the entire series, further up you said that maybe in the future you may reboot wolfblood and make a new series, it’s nearly been 2 years since the last episode, do you think you could bring it back now?? Even if you don’t thank you so much for all the memories you made for me as a younger child.

  46. Just a teen says:

    is there somebody who I could email to try and persuade to reboot the series? I think that they would get a high number of views because of how long its been and I feel like they could even make a spin off series as there’s still so much more that the show has to offer. By the way, I absolutely adore your work as a writer!!

    • debbiemoon says:

      You can probably leave a comment on the CBBC website, but after so long I doubt it will have much effect. Glad you enjoyed the show though!

  47. BJ says:

    hi Debbie. just wanted to say i love this show so much. it inspierd me to write and due to writing i won a young writers award at my high school English Awards. thanks again for creating a great show

  48. LUNAsisters says:

    Hi! Wolfblood is an awesome show, and we are watching it for the second time!
    Just a quick question, at the end of season 5, we were a bit confused about Matei and Jana. It seemed at the end of season 4 that they were becoming really close, and then in season 5, it sort of ended on the note, “Jana is my alpha, that’s all she’ll ever be.”
    So at the end, is that where it’s left or are they still a thing??????
    We love Matei and Jana, (and Maddy and the rest) and we are desperate to know if there is a possibility they would be together in the ‘future’ of Wolfblood after the end of the season. Or did they decide, yeah we aren’t meant to be together?
    Wolfblood is the best show in the world, by the way!!!

  49. Anthony says:

    But the supposed rules of fantasy – magic, orcs, swords and prophecies – are so much a part of the public perception of the genre that it can be difficult to break free from them.

  50. Liam Vickery says:

    Since Maddy and her family had to move to Canada, Did they have to live wild in a cave or something or did they have a house in Canada?

    This has been one of my favorite seasons to watch and I am sad but also happy to see it end like it did.

  51. Liam Vickery says:

    Do you think that after Stonybridge became a safe place for wolfbloods, that Maddy, her family and Rhydian moved back to their old house or somewhere else in Stonybridge?

    • debbiemoon says:

      I’ve deliberately not made any decisions about what happened after the show ended. If there’s ever a sequel or spin-off, that gives us free rein to make those decisions then.

  52. Liam Vickery says:

    Did the world accept wolfbloods after season 5 or not?

  53. Liam Vickery says:

    where can I get the Wolfblood Books and from what type of book store?

  54. Liam Vickery says:

    Thanks, I’m planning on reading than and getting my brother to also.

    P.S
    Wolfblood is one of my favorite series and I thank you so much for that, it has touched my heart on so many occasions and I am currently introducing it to my younger brother.

    I hope you live a happy life and that you regret nothing because you have touched the lives and hearts of so many people and helped many others with issues that they couldn’t solve on their own.

    You will always hold a place in my heart and I wish you all the luck you can muster with your career.

  57. Kevin says:

    Is there any possibility of cbbc deciding to continue the story of wolfblood???

  58. Tommaso says:

    Debbie, what can we fans do to have new seasons of wolfblood, with the cast of the first 2 seasons … then with Aimee Kelly, Bobby Lockwood etc … ???

    • debbiemoon says:

      The actors won’t want to come back after so many years, and the show was cancelled 3 years ago, so that’s just not going to happen.

      • Tommaso says:

        not even a very last 10 episode season with the old cast ??
        Because wolfblood was truly gorgeous as a tv series and I miss him to die for

      • debbiemoon says:

        The show has been cancelled. Ended. Finished. I don’t know how many more ways I can say that. So, no.

      • Tommaso says:

        Sorry if I insist, but you will be able to understand how we fans of this wonderful series feel.
        Who should we convince to start a spin-off, perhaps with the same actors, of wolfblood ??
        We could like a petition, with all the fan signatures to restart the series, or do “polls” in which the public chooses whether to restart the series or not, and see what the public will choose …

        None of that will make any difference, unfortunately.

  59. Kevin says:

    Is the online cbbc comic about the actual story or was it just what could have happend

  60. Kevin says:

    Do you have a story planned if another season of wolfblood ever comes out
    Since in the later season the secret comes out, do you have a story to follow that event or is that kind of like an ending

  61. Kevin says:

    What are the actual reasons of Bobby lockwood,kedar Williams and Louisa connolly for leaving
    We know that aimee Kelly left for school but why did the other 3 leave

  62. Sophie says:

    Hi Debbie, it’s been a long long time since I’ve asked any questions on here aha.

    I know I keep seeing you say there will be no more Wolfblood, however the majority of the cast have been getting together on social media and hinting at a new series, whether thats Wolfblood related or not. – I was wondering if you knew whether it was or not??

    I was also wondering if you would ever think about creating an Older-Audience Wolfblood show?? I know Wolfblood is ‘over’ or ‘finished’ but there just isn’t enough good Werewolf series out there in the world and Wolfblood is by far my favourite. I love it more than Teen Wolf.

    I was also wondering if it would be alright if I could film my own short Wolfblood-inspired YouTube series. I’m not a professional or anything and wouldn’t make money from the videos, it would be sort of like a fanmade series.
    If so, would I be able to use the word ‘Wolfblood’ or not? And maybe the other phrases like ‘Eolas’ and ‘Ancien’ (however you spell it aha)? x

    • debbiemoon says:

      No, there’s no new Wolfblood series of any kind. Whatever the cast are talking about, it must be something else.

      Older audience show: again, we need a TV channel to be interested in making it, and at the moment, no one is.

      Of course you can make your own werewolf series, but I can’t authorise you to use “wolfblood” or any other term created for the show: those are copyrighted by CBBC. And anyway, why would you want to? Part of the fun of creating your own werewolf world is creating your own words, terms and rules…

  63. Jayde says:

    Can you give us more seasons I want to know where this will lead. Is Maddy coming back were did her friends go. Where us this story leading it’s at a dead end. A couple more seasons can end the story. Please give us a story ending.

    • debbiemoon says:

      As the FAQ explains, the show was cancelled three years ago, so there won’t be any more seasons. As for endings, I’m very happy with the ending we have.

      • Wolfbloodfan says:

        Hello, I was wondering how was it that rhydian and his dad ended up with the same last name Morris?
        As in the episode ceberus gerwyn full name. Is it just luck that they ended up with the same last name?
        Thanks, 🙂

      • debbiemoon says:

        One of the few things that young Rhydian was able to tell people when he was found wandering in the hills was his name. And while it’s unusual for wild Wolfbloods to have surnames, Gerwyn was already leaning towards a more human life, so maybe he was using a surname, and Rhydian remembered that…

  64.

  69. Vera B Alexander says:

    They should keep it going it’s a good show

  70. jasmine says:

    i hope that one day the series will continue 🙂

  71. OfMonstersAndWerewolves says:

    Hi Debbie. I just had a question I wanted to ask surrounding Jana. Am I correct in that you posted a comment here once mentioning that you’d suggested to the heads of CBBC if you could have Jana be bi and they’d refused? I seem to recall seeing one but can’t seem to find it.

    I’m actually working on some of the Wolfblood related pages over on Fanlore, documenting fan history and fan culture and whatnot, and was hoping to use it as a reference for Jana’s page.

    Werewolves are a favourite of mine, hence part of the username, and I love the show a whole lot. Wish we could have had more (particularly Katrina/Robyn), but what we got was great and thank you so much for creating it (feel free to send a shout out from me to the rest of the cast and crew too for their awesome work, if you’re able to at all.)

    Thanks 🙂

    • debbiemoon says:

      Well, “refused” is a bit strong. They didn’t feel it was the right way to go for that particular character. (That is, it was an artistic decision rather than “no you can’t”.)

      • OfMonstersAndWerewolves says:

        Ah, thank you so much for the reply and clarification there. As I mentioned, I was only going off my memory of the other comment and couldn’t quite remember the full wording. Fully appreciate you taking the time out of your day 🙂

  72. Britney Fan says:

    Hi Debbie. so i had a thought of something and i would like to hear your opinion about it. it obviously will not happen. it is just a fun idea, but what do you think either a live stage show. or a Musical of Wolfblood would look like.

  73. Brug says:

    I know this might sound rude but I feel this story suffered a lot from the limits of a live action show and that it would have done better in an animated environment it makes me sad to see how often shows are canceled or unable to continue because aging is a thing. Also in an animated envoirnment depending on the style it is sometimes less expensive and could be less of a commitment on the company’s part. Just my opinion also kind of a recommendation? But I think it could be continued in that kind of environment but it would be a massive change.

    • Brug says:

      I reread my comment and the “it” at the end is unclear what I mean is that it would be interesting if WB could be a thing again as an animated rebute.

  74. James Griffiths says:

    Hey Debbie,

    I just wanted to say thank you for creating this fantastic show, it truly does hold many special memories for me.

    I initially watched Wolfblood with my dad when I was back in secondary school and now anytime I decide to rewatch the show I find myself bombarded with the most lovely memories from that time! The show provided a real bonding experience for myself and my father and I think we both look back on those times fondly.

    Wolfblood has something special about it that no matter how many years roll by compels me to revisit the show. As I said, I first watched the show when I was quite young (I think I was about 13 or 14), which is quite the scary thought for me to think that it was quite so long ago. Now I’m 21 years old, studying for a masters degree and I’m happy to say I’ve just picked the show back up again and I’m enjoying it more than ever! I think what I love the most about the show is that it really resonates with some of my own key values. Those being the importance of family and friends and the idea that you have the freedom to choose where you want to belong. The relationship portrayed by the characters of Maddie and Rhydian also always tugs at my heart strings and I believe it is one of the highlights of the whole series.

    Apologies for rambling on, I’ve been toying with the idea of posting on here for years and I just wanted to convey my sincere gratitude to you!
    Thank you so much Debbie!

    Kind regards,
    James Griffiths

  75. Rids says:

    how much did each episode or each season cost to produce like props and sets and everything just curious thanks.

  76. Mason King says:

    I was wondering if cbbc ever did want to reboot or somehow make a sequel or spin off Or some other company wanted would you or aimee kelly and bobby lockwood or any of the orginal cast be down for it?

    • debbiemoon says:

      If that was to happen, I’d probably be involved in some capacity, yes. I doubt any of the cast would come back – we’d want a younger cast – but who knows?

      • Mason King says:

        Well many of the fans miss the original cast and to be honest i think it would be easy for them to act the same and if it did come back they could do a time skip of some sort so they’re older

  77. Mason King says:

    If it costed £3 million which is roughly $6 million U.S (i think) is that counting paying the actors and everything for the set.
    And for me just wanting to learn, who manages that money and where does the money come from.
    It suprises me that a script could go somewhere huge.

    • debbiemoon says:

      That counts everything, yes. The money comes from the channels [networks] producing the show, which in this case was CBBC and ZDFE, and it’s managed by the production accountant and their team.

  78. Mason king says:

    Another question but when they turn into werwolves or start to who animated the part were there eyes change colors then zooms into the eyes then shows them transforming within (its hars to explain that sorry)
    Also when there hands and neck starts to get all veiny (again bad at explaining) who animated that part? Was it all by the same animator or were both of them cgi instead of animation?
    Because i know the wolves were animation.

  79. Madison bee says:

    How did the wolfblood cast get picked. Like bobby lockwood and aimee? Did they just audition or did people reach out to them?

    • debbiemoon says:

      Well, the casting director handled all of that, but… usually, casting director contact agencies and see who they have who fits the description of the character, and ask them to audition.

  80. Amelia Heston says:

    Hi i read some of your other stuff on here and i really love your script writing!
    I was wondering if you do or could share the original script you used when applying for the screen writing? I’d love to read all of it if you dont mind!

    • debbiemoon says:

      There are links to Wolfblood scripts in the FAQ. I won’t be posting the first draft of the pilot script, if that’s what you’re looking for: it bears no resemblance to the series as it it eventually evolved, so I don’t think there’s any point.

  81. Fan1 says:

    I just stumbled across this show while looking for supernatural shows and OMG it was one of the best decisions of my LIFE. I immediately feel in love with the whole show and characters, and when I finished it I was crying for DAYS because there isn’t more. (And because I wish I was one of them) Best show in my life. I really really really hope they make more.

  82. Elliot Noyes says:

    Hi Debbie,

    First of all I just wanted to say thank you for creating a universe that I found totally encapsulating at 14 and still do now at nearly 20. I think the mixture of serious issues, great character development, amazing music (especially Andy Price’s stuff) and good acting make this one of my favourite ever tv shows. It sounds silly being at the age I am now and still feeling this way about it, maybe it’s nostalgia but I really do think that the show could have done just as well on any non-children’s tv channel as it did on CBBC and that’s just a testament to your creation. Anyway I got a bit carried away there and I did actually have a couple of questions. Do you ever think it can/will return in some way shape or form? And could you see any of the cast from series 1-3 being involved if it did? Also is there any way I could contact Andy about the music as I’d really like to be able to listen to some of what he created outside of the confines of the show (I create music myself and have found the melancholy and melody of much of it to be beautiful). Sorry for a long comment and I hope you’re doing well in the madness that is this pandemic:)

  83. I am in in wolf blood show i cant next show i want mor show my favourite character is mady

  84. soph says:

    just saying look at amiee kelly instagram, posts her and bobby 6 days ago with caption “demand & supply”… new wolfblood???

  85. Damian Navsky says:

    Thank you for running this site, it’s been a pleasure to read all those interesting trivia and behind-the-scenes stuff. I want to make some sort of a tribute to Wolfblood in my book about the most groundbreaking TV shows for me. It’s like a diary to come back after years and watch it all over again with reading what I put into that. It would be great if you could find a moment to answer a few of my questions which I wish to add to my book:

    1. My favorite episode is Occam’s Razor (Season 1). It was a remarkable moment to watch the main characters in their spontaneous experience of ‘adultness’ and freedom by spending the full moon without any limitations. Do you remember the process of writing that episode and making it? Who chose the beautiful Lindisfarne Island for the location?
    2. What did you feel when you saw the first episode for the first time ever? What it’s like to see the world created in your mind becoming something more than just imagination?
    3. Have you ever faced any serious problems with working with the big TV network, Was it a bittersweet relation when you had to agree to make changes in the script which you hadn’t wanted?
    4. Did you keep anything from the set?
    5. Do you find making the Wolfblood series an important thing in your life, What was the most positive aspect of that particular time of your life?
    6. Do you still stay in touch with some of the cast members?

    If you don’t want to write down all the answers you can send me a video made with your phone 🙂 it should be faster. I think you see my email as an admin of this page but if you don’t – let me know.
    I’m looking forward to hear your answers but if you won’t want to answer all these questions I will totally understand it. Once again – I really appreciate your time.

    Greetings from Poland,
    Damian.

    • debbiemoon says:

      1) I chose Lindesfarne as the location: we needed an island, obviously, and it was the closest option to the usual shooting locations. The fantastic locations on the island were a real bonus, of course! Unfortunately, I wasn’t present for the filming of any of the episode, though.
      2) It was a fantastic experience to see Wolfblood on a screen for the first time. Knowing I was working with such a great cast and crew, I knew it would be good, but seeing the final result was still amazing.
      3) To be honest, there were no major problems with the broadcasters. Most of their notes and changes were extremely good ideas. Where we did make changes I would have liked not to make, it was always because of budget. However much money (or time!) you have, it’s never enough…
      4) I still have some odds and ends from Katrina’s cafe, and the newspaper from the final episode (reporting Hartington’s arrest).
      5) The most positive aspect was the sheer amount I learned about both writing and making a TV show. It was an extraordinary opportunity to learn from experts in every field, from producers to costume to stunt arrangers and many more.
      6) I’m not really in touch with many of the cast now – we might exchange comments on social media, that’s about it. I am still in touch with most of the other writers, who I worked more closely with, though!

      • Damian Navsky says:

        There are no words that can describe how thankful I am. I hope I see some of your new projects in the coming years. I wish you all the best, God bless you!
