Wolfblood FAQ

Welcome to the new updated Wolfblood FAQ! 

Last updated on 1st January 2016

Questions about – Season Four

Will there be a fourth season?

Yes, filming of the fourth season ended on the 11th December, and it should be on air sometime in 2016.

Who’s writing season four?

Wolfblood veterans Sophie Petzal and Neil Jones will be returning, and we’ll be joined by new arrivals Furquan Akhtar and Matt Sinclair. I’ll be writing four episodes, and everyone else two each, giving us a twelve episode season this year.

Will Aimee Kelly (Maddy) return to season four? 

Aimee Kelly left the show over two years ago in order to go to college, and currently has no plans to return. She’ll always be a huge part of our Wolfblood universe, and who knows, she might return at some point… But for now, she’s busy doing other things.

Why don’t you just cast a new actress to play Maddy?

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’d never do it with a lead role.

Will Aimee Kelly ever return for a cameo appearance as Maddy?

At the moment she has no plans to do that. It’s possible that she might do so, at some point in the future – but given how money and effort it takes to get an actor to set to film one scene, we’d only do that if we felt her character could really add something to that episode. Bringing Maddy back just to bring her back is unsatisfying for everyone, including the actor…

What about the rest of the cast, will they be in season four?

After three wonderful seasons, Bobby Lockwood (Rhydian), Kedar Williams-Sterling (Tom) and Louisa Connelly-Burnham (Shannon), have all decided to leave the show and move on to other projects.

Sad as I am to see them go, I know they’ll be going on to great things, and I’m sure you’ll join me in wishing them well in their careers.

I know a lot of you will be upset by this – but remember, change is a good thing for a television series. Shows that remain the same throughout their run quickly grow boring and stale, to work on as well as to watch. The inevitable coming and going of cast members is one of the ways that we avoid that.

And as a children’s show, we’re very aware that our audience is interested in fellow tweens and teens. Following the same characters for years, into their twenties, simply wouldn’t appeal to our core audience, who are interested in school, home and family. Though it wasn’t our choice for any of the actors who’ve left to leave, their decision does allow Wolfblood to remain faithful to its core audience and ideas.

So, what can we expect from season four? And what about new characters?

For the first time, the show will be moving outside Stoneybridge and into the big wide world. Jana, played by Leona Vaughan, will now be our main character, and we’ll be following her as she embarks on a new life in the big city, and builds herself a new pack of Wolfbloods and humans… This season gives us a chance to expand the scope of the show, and to explore new locations and new characters that will reveal more about what it really means to be a Wolfblood!

From the BBC press release:

Former wild Wolfblood Jana (Leona Vaughan) now takes centre stage, having left the security and seclusion of rural Stoneybridge and moved into the city where she forms a new pack.

The Wolfbloods who play a pivotal role in her adventures include corporate boss Imara (Michelle Gayle), her son TJ (Louis Payne), Matei (Jack Brett Anderson), his sister Emilia (Sydney Wade), and martial arts enthusiast Selina (Rukku Nahar). Returning characters include Katrina (Gabrielle Green), who has opened a new Kafe in town, Kay (Shorelle Hepkin) and their old teacher Mr Jeffries (Mark Fleischmann).

In a world of CCTV, social networks, 4G camera phones and viral videos, the wolfblood ‘secret’ is becoming increasingly vulnerable; faced with new dilemmas and foes, Wolfbloods have to adapt to survive and Jana faces her biggest challenges yet.

(read the full press release at http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2015/wolf-blood-goes-urban )

What about the characters who are no longer in the show – 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 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.)

When will season four be on television in the UK?

We don’t know yet. Once we can announce that, we will. However, it’s going to be 2016, not 2015.

Will there be a fifth season? How many seasons will there be in total?

CBBC makes a decision about whether to commission a new season after each season has been shown in the UK. This means we have no idea yet whether there’ll be a fifth season, or how long the show will run for.

Why do you make twelve or thirteen episodes a season, when shows on other channels make more?

Twelve to thirteen episodes per season is the usual number for CBBC programmes. It’s also as many as we have time, and money, to make each year!

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?

There’s no point in contacting me to ask about transmission dates for your country, because I simply don’t 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 season 3 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. Nothing I can do about that…

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 a RTS North-East award, 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?

It’s A Promise That I Keep, music by Andy Price, lyrics by Klause White, performed by Lisa Knapp. The soundtrack isn’t available to buy yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that changed eventually.

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

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 two sets of DVD releases:

Season one, two and three DVDs have been released in Germany, and are available in many other countries via Amazon and other online retailers. They can be played with the original English-language soundtrack (original actors’ voices, music, etc), as well as in a dubbed German-language version. Check your DVD player can play a Region 2 disc before ordering!

And all three seasons are available on DVD in the US, available from all the usual retailers. Again, these are available to ship to other countries from Amazon and other online retailers. Check your DVD player can play a Region 1 disc before ordering!

A UK DVD release for all the seasons will hopefully happen eventually, but I don’t have any details on when yet.

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 can still 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.

Other Wolfblood merchandise is currently being considered. Once I have more information, I’ll update the FAQ. I expect this merchandise will be available by mail order to other countries too – but until we know what it is and which retailers will be stocking it, we just don’t know.

Will there ever be Wolfblood books?

We’ve just signed a contract with a publishing company to produce novelisations (book versions of the TV episodes) and other Wolfblood books. The first three books, summarising seasons one to three, 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 Wolfblood (or any other 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. If not, 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? Any tips?

Obviously I’m a writer, not an actor, so I have no direct experience of this, but… Join a youth theatre or a Saturday drama class. Look for ones that put on plays, not 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.

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 of 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, plot suggestions, 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: how the show is filmed

Do you use real wolves when filming the show?

No. The wolves are computer-animated by our special effects company.

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 are  in nearby Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.

How do you do the yellow eyes?

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

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: previous episodes, characters and backstory

What would happen if a Wolfblood and a human had a child together? Would the baby be human or Wolfblood?

Depends. Being Wolfblood is genetic, so the baby would either inherit the human genes and be human, or the Wolfblood ones, and be Wolfblood. So some of their children would be Wolfblood and some human.

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 somewhere in the Highlands of Scotland, but wild Wolfbloods aren’t exactly experts in geography…)

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…

– DON’T bother asking what’s going to happen in upcoming episodes. The only response you will ever get is  “no spoilers”.

– 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…

  1. Lors_WolfbloodFanatic says:

    Why did Jana abandon the wild pack?
    Will there be any mention of the wild pack in the new series?

  2. Sophie says:

    I’ve already began writing a Wolfblood fanfic book lol. Will the books be a written format of the episodes, [exactly the same], or will they have their own twists?

  3. looking forward to the next generation says:

    do you think most tamed wolfbloods live in fear of the truth coming out and they only see living in a civilised manner the only way of not being found out and harmed? Or do you think that it has just become a normality to hide their wolf in front of humans, in order for them to belong in the wider community?

    can I just say, I am still baffled at how smoothly and subtly, Ceri’s adaptation to the human world developed- especially as you see Ceri n call of the wild, to the same wolfblood with the same wolf in moonrise- it is remarkable and phenomenal really does show how good you and the writers, in a way I wish wolfblood would never end because you never stop developing and changing the characters in such a natural and magical way- with any character and not just the main pack, but minor characters too and therefore its so easy for them to become main characters at some point (like Liam for example)

    • debbiemoon says:

      Well, there’s obviously a concern about what would happen if they were ‘found out’. But they also probably enjoy the lives they have, their human friends, the comforts of home. So their reasons for living as they do probably vary from person to person…

  4. Maile says:

    Why cant you just make maddy and the rest of the crew teens like seniors?
    wouldn’t it be easier to do that hence the fact that maddy promised to come back for Rhydian?Whats gonna happen to the love story between them? Do you expect us fans to forget about Maddian? thats basically the main attraction of the show right?But you know it dont matter since they all decided to drop eveything and quit.I dont mean to insult just dissapointed that it happened .

    • debbiemoon says:

      As I think you already know, if cast members choose to leave, then they choose to leave, and there’s nothing anyone can do about that. It’s up to us as writers to continue the story in a way that’s true to the aims of the series – which was always about all Wolfbloods, not just Maddy & Rhydian – and I’m very proud of the way we’ve done that in seasons 3 and 4.

      • Maile says:

        You know I really enjoy all of your work and I honestly just wanna see maddy and rhydian together since you know they did end up being a couple but its not up to me or any of the fans its up to you and as he author I can see that I have no right to insult or pressure you with my earlier comment I am just very sad to hear that All of them are leaving I enjoy wolfblood very much and like any other wolfblood fan want to see them all come back. I hope you accept my apology for being straight foward like that I dont mean to insult Im sure anyone can understand the sadness at their leaving but your right, it was their choice and if they choose that choice then well all just have to live with it. I hope you know that Wolfblood has become my favorite show and I just found out about it the other day and well I just finished watching season 3 yesterday. I am sorry for causing any trouble or have insulted you, I was just shocked at the news and was angry at the fact that she didint come back. But like you said If they choose they choose, Im very sorry again, but I still have hope that one day they will come back if not a season then an episode.

  5. Nummys says:

    Hey Debbie I have a question about the wolf blood universe
    In the wolf mood universe would rhydians brother ever come back?
    I know actor wise he left but him as a character do you think so? (Sorry if it’s confusing)
    Also do you think that a younger sibling would kill the older one to become alpha?

    • debbiemoon says:

      Bryn could come back – but what would we do with him? His character journey would be the same as Jana’s, a wild Wolfblood come to the human world, and we’ve already done that with her…

  6. Elena says:

    Thank you and congratulations for your excellenct work with the series, I adored it!

  7. aquahoof01 says:

    Hey Debbie, I wish to ask I know you can’t give anything away character name wise but Sharron and Tom learned about the Wolfblood secret at the end of season 1, whitewood learned it more or less at the end of season 2 and Mr Jeffries and Liam found out near the end of season 3 so are more characters who were left in the dark in the past going to find out the wolfblood secret in the new season :) ?

  8. Wolfblooded says:

    Will Maddie and her parents ever show again? If you have no clear answer would you consider showing them again on wolfblood?mind asking the actors? Please? Wolfblood isnt the same without Maddie

  9. Wolfblooded says:

    I don’t think its fair for people to fall in love with a show, and leave them hanging because the actors cant continue filming anymore. I love wolfblood, I have seen every episode atleast 20 to 30 times. Please try to get Maddie, Rydian, Shannon and Tom back in the show. I actually cry every time when I see Maddie kiss Rydian and leave moments after, true love. Rydian said he would look for her when he got older, when no one cared what he did anymore. And if Maddie and her parents part of Jana’s pack, why can’t Rydian visit Maddie?

    • debbiemoon says:

      As explained in the FAQ, the actors have no plans to return to the show at the moment. And I can’t put a character in the show if I don’t have an actor to play them!

    • Gabby says:

      hello, but in the third season is that! but not as humans but as wolves, but Ridhyan fulfills his promise and at the end when everything ends, he goes after her, and the two meet :)
      While I would love too, more of them <3

  10. Pepsi Cola says:

    How did wolfbloods come about? Did stoneage humans spend too long with their new wolf pets? Or did they just appear with wolfblood abilities? Also, would prehistoric people have knkwn in detail about these halfblood beings?

  11. Hayden says:

    Hi debbie
    First of all i would love to tell you that wolfblood is brilliant it has inspired me for two possible job options i would like. Writing or acting! I have always wonderd, if the secret ever came out, how do you think the humans would react to it? Would they hate it or love it. I also thought that in less developed countries around the world where war things are common. Wouldnt the secret be out because some may not be uneducated.

    One last thing – when shan and tom found out in series one, how did events go down after like the first few weeks after, was it awkward?

    Sorry for loads of questions

    • debbiemoon says:

      If the secret came out, different humans would react in different ways. You’d see everything from hatred to delight, and everything in between…

      I expect there were some awkward conversations between seasons one and two, but friendship won out in the end.

      • aquahoof01 says:

        yeah I agree Debbie I was about to say the same but waited for your post first, I guess some humans would be fascinated and go ‘oh wow that’s really cool’ and be sympathetic to wolfbloods in all society that would be the pro side.

        The con would be scientists worse that whitewood wanting to experiment and learn more about wolfbloods for their own benefit and folks like Kyle from season 1 want to cage them up as a tourist attraction then there would be folks like Kinkaid and that old couple from season 2 who would claim wolfbloods were evil monsters that would hurt adults and children alike and want them exterminated.

    Hi Debbie, in season 2 Rhydian is living with Maddy. Emma and Dan decide that it’s best for him to move out? Why is that?

  13. Wolfblooded says:

    If the actors for Maddie (Aimee Kelly), Rhydian (Bobby Lockwood), Tom (Kedar Williams), Shannon (Louisa Connoly), and Maddie’s parents all agreed and had no problem to re-join the show, would you re-cast them? It wasn’t the same without Maddie

  14. Dan foskett says:

    K thanks an one last question.

    Do u think jana has changed now that their will be no Tom, Shannon, Maddy and Rydian?

  15. Dan foskett says:

    Ah cool!!!

    Just want to say I love this and I hope you wanna carry this on for loads more series I love wolfblood!!

    Can’t wait for series 4!!

  16. wolfblood maddian says:

    After season 3 are maddy and rhydian a couple now or are they getting married any time soon

    • debbiemoon says:

      They’re far too young to think about getting married – but yes, they are together and very happy.

      • wolfblood maddian says:

        Yay thank you would maddy and rhydian sometime in the future move back to stonyebrige on their own like just a question that popped into my head

      • wolfblood says:

        Did rhydian ever had a crush on jana or does she still have a crush on him last question if maddy and rhydian had children would they tell them about eolas and would they transform in the wild Do cubs have/get their wolfblood senses early in life sorry for asking a lot of questions i just have so many of them sorry

      • debbiemoon says:

        As you can see from season 2, Jana initially had a crush on Rhydian, but that eventually faded.
        Who knows what decisions they’d make in the future? That’s a long way away…
        Wolfbloods are born with their enhanced senses, whether they’re wild or not…

      • wolfblood says:

        Did louise emma’s cousin live in the wild pack because i thought i saw someone who looked alot like emma in the web episodes and last question in Canada do maddy and rhydian transform in the wild

      • debbiemoon says:

        No, Emma’s cousin has never appeared in the series.
        We’re trying to leave the details of Maddy & Rhydian’s new life undecided, because there’s always a chance that will be explored – in a book, a film, who knows? – and we want to keep our options open.

      • Gossip girl says:

        Have maddy and rhydian taken their relationship to the next level since they have known each other for 3 years if aimee Kelly wanted to do season 3 would we see maddy and rhydian growing as a couple by next level i mean what happens behind close doors

      • debbiemoon says:

        We never decided what Maddy & Rhydian would have done in season 3, because we already knew that Aimee Kelly was leaving at the end of the season 2, so it was never going to happen.
        As for what happens to them next: as I said to someone earlier, we’re trying to leave the details of Maddy & Rhydian’s new life undecided, because there’s always a chance that will be explored – in a book, a film, who knows? – and we want to keep our options open.

      • George says:

        Keep pushing for the wolfblood film! Have you had any more conversations with CBBC and your writers? It be truly amazing.

      • debbiemoon says:

        As always, negotiations are underway. It may take years, and it may never happen – but we’re doing our best…

      • Gabby says:

        Grooms in reality? !!! that cute :) I love that they are a beautiful couple, my joy <3
        Among many girls to be with her, her best friend :D

  17. Lizzy says:

    Hi Debbie,

    I was just wondering what copyright laws surround the motion comic online? As you know, I run a wolfblood roleplay forum, and its membership consists mainly of members outside of the UK, who can’t see the motion comic on the CBBC website.

    I assume that it’s illegal to share it as it is, as it would be for the TV show itself due to copyright, but I wondered if it was legally allowed to be shared in any other form? For example, if I were to copy out the words but not show them the art, or if I were to draw my own using the same words (or similar, but with the same story), as fan art?

    Failing either of these is it legally allowed to share a detailed description of what happens for the members outside of the UK?

    I would really love to share it as the comic is, but that is obviously going to be illegal in some shape or form, and so I’d like to share it as close to the original as possible legally. I wondered if you knew of what the rules allow and don’t allow. I wouldn’t want to break any laws, or just bbc rules, and to put wolfblood in danger (as you say in the FAQ about how illegal episodes online affect viewing figures, but the comic wouldn’t affect the figures because it will never be available on TV?) or to offend you or any other writer, that’s why I’m asking about how to stay within laws and rules. If you say it’s not possible to share, then I wont share it.

    I’m sorry if I’m asking questions that you don’t know the answer to, but it seemed worth a shot to ask, as I’ve seen many fans here asking about whether they can see the comic at all, and on my site, it could be made available to guests from any country, without needing to sign up.

    • debbiemoon says:

      Obviously I’m not a lawyer and this shouldn’t be taken as legal advice, but… My understanding is that any duplication of any part of the comic would be a breach of copyright and the BBC would take legal action.
      There’s also a specific issue of the BBC’s remit. They receive money via the license fee to make content (like the comic) for the UK, and the UK only. That’s why the comic isn’t available to anyone outside the UK. If they allowed anyone to reproduce the comic for overseas readers, they’d be breaking their own rules…

  18. Dan foskett says:

    If a wolfblood is in a city, what do u think they would do in a full moon?

  19. ⛈⛈⛈⛈⛈⛈⛈⛈ says:

    since maddy left I have found the series to be boring and I have stopped watching them until maddy returns

    • Wolfblood: the next generation says:

      If a wolfblood in human form, on the full moon,had an excessive amount of alcohol, and became really squiffy, would they still be drunk in wolf form?

      • debbiemoon says:

        Good question! Let me think about that. Certainly other mammals – presumably including wolves – can get drunk. The question is, would the process of transformation, which changes so much about their body, neutralise the alcohol? And of course, Wolfbloods have enhanced healing powers at full moon, and alcohol is effectively a mild poison, which means drunkenness is an illness… I’m going to say no: the process of transformation and the enhanced healing would neutralise the alcohol and sober them up.

  20. Mo says:

    Something I was curious about: When wolfbloods transform into their wolf selves, are they still mentally in control (human wise) or are they at that point more animal? For example, in 1×01 did Emma and Dan break out of the den because they wanted to as bored adults, or because they (as wolfbloods) smelled food and wanted to roam? Or Ceri in 1×13 with the bait (scent), would she really have attacked Shannon/Tom if Maddy hadn’t stopped her? Was that Ceri in 1×02 too? If it was, would she have attacked her own son, or was she not in control at the moment? Sorry, one last thing, in 1×13 Ceri quite rudely tells Emma/Dan that “You’re secret’s out”..What’s her issue? The secret is really all of theirs to protect & if anyone would be hunted down by humans, it’d be wild wolfbloods, not tame ones like the Smith’s who can blend in. She just seemed extra vengeful at that point, when it’s not Emma, Dan, or Maddy’s fault that her son was taken away 12 years ago. That was on her and Gerwyn. The Smith family helped him learn about who and what he was, but she appeared to despise them without a reason.

    • debbiemoon says:

      Their animal instincts are much stronger when they’re in wolf form, certainly, and they’re more impulsive. They can control that – but wild Wolfbloods have never really had to.
      As for Ceri – perhaps at some level she blames the Smiths for Rhydian not leaving with her when she first asked him to, and that drives her emotions here?

  21. Abdiwali says:

    Please make season 4 with all the people please specially Maddy so cute please please please please please please please please please

  22. ShadowTheTherian says:

    Hi Debbie,
    I enjoy Wolfblood and I love how it puts it’s own spin on werewolves. It’s new and refreshing, especially when so many werewolf based shows are always centered around the same stereotypical things. I have a few questions, and I know you’re probably busy but it would be much appreciated if you can answer with a bit of detail.

    Within the WolfBlood population, are there differences between wolfbloods other than just whether or not they are tame or wild? For example do wolfbloods in different countries/family bloodlines have slight differences biologically, whether that be some family lines have better hearing or basic things like that?

    When wolfbloods change into their wolf form would it be painful or feel really weird? How do you think it would feel?

    Last question, I’ll make it quick. If it is decided that a fifth season is made, would Jana likely remain the main character, or could it change for something new and exciting with the focus on a different character or characters?

    Thankyou for your time,
    Shadow.

    • debbiemoon says:

      As with humans, some individuals will have better hearing, sight, etc than others. That might run in families. And wild Wolfbloods are more attuned, more experienced in using their senses – though that doesn’t necessarily mean their senses are better, they’re just more naturally alert to them.
      In an early draft of the first episode, I seem to remember describing transformation as like a circus strongman breaking free of chains: it’s a physical effort, but it’s not painful or scary.
      We really don’t know at this stage. Mostly, it depends on whether Leona Vaughan wants to stay or not…

  23. Samara.S☆ says:

    Hi Debbie
    I’ve got a couple of questions
    Do you think that the actors influenced the characters in any way? Do you think that if you had had different actors the characters would have been different?
    Samara xx

    • debbiemoon says:

      I don’t think we would have written the characters differently with different actors (after all, the whole first season was written before anyone was cast). But of course the actors bring so much to the characters we write, so yes, different performances would have resulted in slightly different characters.

  24. connor says:

    debbiemoon please tell me when season 4 episode 1 airs please tell me i love wolfblood and i was destroyed when i got to the end of season 3 so please tell me when season 4 is airing it would mean the world to me please if you find out can you please email me at [deleted for your safety]

  25. Lors_WolfbloodFanatic says:

    I know you’re not really involved with the music but I was wondering if there was anyway I could get hold of/purchase the sheet music for the music at the ending of series 1?

  26. aquahoof01 says:

    In the wolfblood short ‘Order’ we discover Ceri’s son Brynn (rydians brother) runs away, will we ever find out what happened to him and where his life has taken him outside the pack?

  27. Nummys says:

    What do you think would happen if wolfbloods ever got found out?
    I know in the first season Emma said that back then they were burned at the stake or something but what do you think? How do you think the public would react?
    Also how often or what time do you usually answer the questions on the forum?
    (Just Wondering!)

    • debbiemoon says:

      I don’t think modern humans would react the same way as in medieval times – but there would be a range of reactions, from positive to negative.
      No set time. Just whenever I have some free time.

  28. Nummys says:

    Does or can the breed of wolf determine the personality or look of a wolfblood in human form?

  29. alex k says:

    Hi Debbie I absolutely love wolfblood and I just have two questions
    1) when will season 4 come out in the UK
    2) when writing the script didn’t u ever think that season 3 was a bit to mature for cbbc

  30. Gabby says:

    Hi :) please let know where is this chapter: https://www.wattpad.com/36196951-wolf-blood-familia-lobo . there is a book where I can continue reading about of wolfblood? this link information they film later ? filmarán this link? Thanks in advance :D

  31. Zach Arias says:

    what happened to Rhydian’s wolfblood brother?

  32. Dan foskett says:

    You know how wolves and dogs will go after certain things and animals?

    Would a wolfblood in human form. Be attracted to anything?

    Thanks

  33. looking forward to the next generation says:

    What would happen if it was a full moon, and a wolfblood (as a wolf) decided to have a swim in the lake, and suddenly sunrise appears and they run out of the lake just before they change into human form. My question s: would the wolfblood (in human form) be soaking wet and muddy because when they were wolf form they were muddy and wet, or during the transformation they get dry cleans clothes and all the water disappears? what would happen?
    thanks!

  34. Fred says:

    Hi! I was wondering if you could add an “updated on…(date)” thing on top of the FAQ; I come here frequently, waiting for it to be updated, and usually have to scroll down half the FAQ to see if any news or comments on season 4 have been added. Having the date of the last update would be really helpfull.

    Thanks!

    I love your show by the way, can’t wait for season 4.

  35. Dest says:

    Maybe if Jana decided to leave maybe you could film an all new cast in an all new place for a season so we could see what wolf bloods do in different places like new york. U.S

  36. WolfbloodFan says:

    Is the song tha Shannon sings in series 2 Pull of The Moon a real song?

  37. Lizzy says:

    I know it’s a bit of a silly question, but I was wondering which was right — on the subtitles for the episodes, as I checked before I made Wolf Out, the subtitles said that the rare wolfblood talent is called ‘Ansion’, to me it sounded like that’s what the characters have been saying too (but having read it, I might have been influenced) however on wolfblood wiki and some other places I’ve seen wolfblood mentioned it’s been known as ‘Ansin’… since I write about wolfblood a lot on the roleplay site, I was wondering which is correct, what did you write it as on the scripts?

    Thank you :)

  38. wolfAD2312 says:

    Around what time do you think the season 4 poster and trailer will be released? I have also seen the actors post on social media that Wolfblood is airing in March, is that true?
    Thanks!

  39. Sophie says:

    I have a question which I’ve been pondering for a while…
    Wolfbloods;
    Are the human and wolf connected as one? – Can the human control their wolf self?
    Or is the wolf separate from the human? – Like, the wolf has their own feelings and relations towards people?

    • debbiemoon says:

      You’re still the same ‘person’ whether in wolf form or human form – same thoughts and feelings, same personality. The only real difference is that the wolf is more instinctual and impulsive…

  40. Ash says:

    When is Season 4 going to come? I have been waiting so long….

  41. Nat says:

    But what about Jana&Aron?
    Will we see the them together in s4?
    What is between this two? Friendship or smth more?
    I know that you don’t want to make any spoiler but pleeeease I’m shipping them so hard:D ♥
    Ps: We all will miss first cast BUT s3 was sooooooo good that I’m sure that s4 will be great too and I’m looking forward to finally watch it♥
    Ps2: Sorry for any mistakes – I don’t speak eng very well.
    LOVE U♥

    • debbiemoon says:

      Aran, along with the rest of the wild pack, will be back in season 4. As for his relationship with Jana – clearly he has very strong feelings for her, but she doesn’t seem to feel the same way about him.

      • Wolfbloodrules says:

        Sorry to butt in to the conversation but a few months ago I asked the same kinda question and you said they had no feelings for each other and it wouldn’t have been allowed to portray such emotions because it would be seen as child grooming. I’m a little confused to how Aran has strong feelings for her and how it’s been shown in the show during series 3- especially as Aran is very bottled up emotion wise! Sorry to be a pain I’m just not sure whether Aran ever had feelings for Jana and if he did then what examples of him demonstrating his feelings are there?

      • debbiemoon says:

        Yes, we would never be allowed to show a relationship between a teenage girl and an adult man. But I don’t remember saying Aran has no feelings for Jana. I think those feelings are obvious every time they’re on screen together.

  42. Jamie (Lunarlover) says:

    Just wondering about the release date of season 4, since the seasons have been airing on TV again one after another, is there a chance of season 4 beginning after season 3 has aired on TV? So in 35-45 days perhaps?

  43. john says:

    It won’t be the same with out the same people

  44. sp says:

    I can’t wait for the new series although i am a bit worry about moving the scene in the city ,part of the series’s charm was the outdoor scenery and the feel that wolfbloods even the smith were never far apart from nature, so i hope there is at least a big park in the city for Jana to roam free.
    I am also bit of Jana/Aran shipper and she is already a young adult, i know you wouldn’t allow such a relationship still but i would find it diffivult to watch Jana falling for a new guy, Also Aran is so devoted to her but he is still a wild wolf what is he going to do in the city especially if he has no chance with her,shouldn’t he move with the wild pack maybe become a leader with Jana’s blessing? Sorry if its a bit spoilerish but i hope you cananswer me
    One last thing , Can Aran become alpha all there is a certain requirment like blood relationship for a wolfblood to become the leader of the eback?

  45. sp says:

    Something i forgot about Bryn , Rhydian’s brother. I find hard to believe Ceri would leave her youngest son after everything that happened with Rhydian, i mean he is stil a kill and doesn’t have a wolf form yet so he runs the risk of been taken by community services if he strays a bit from his pack. Also the majority of the pack was caught in season 3 finale right? And lastly it was pretty sad that Ceri in season 3 was such a good mother figure to Jana and Rhydian and even got along with her hausband then her youngest son couldn’t be there, his role was minor so a recast wouldn’t harm the character i think,
    Also does Bryn has the same father as Rhydian?

    • debbiemoon says:

      I suppose Ceri felt Bryn was old enough to take care of himself, with the protection of the pack. Wolfbloods mature fast.
      Bryn and Rhydian do have the same father, yes.
