Wolfblood FAQ

Welcome to the new updated Wolfblood FAQ! 

Questions about – Season Four

Will there be a fourth season?

Yes, filming of the fourth season started on the 21st September, 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

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.

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


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 four other Children’s BAFTAs in 2013 and 2014. The season three writing team were nominated for 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.

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


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 are 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. There’s some information on that here


As soon as I have more information about when the books will be out, I’ll update this section.

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


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


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 particularly 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. ..... says:

    in the cure, we learn of how Sweeney’s grandmother left her behind when a fire raged on in the forest, and Victoria couldn’t be united with her pact again (though she had the tooth as a reminder of who her identity is)- does that mean Sweeney was a wild wolfblood? What happened to her parents? (surely a mother can always find her cub) or did they die in the fire?

  2. Thushiga says:

    If I’m honest I do LOVE Wolfblood although I do see the show being cancelled/ stopped by lack of audience as let’s be honest, everyone was looking forward to seeing rhydian and madly together and Tom and Shannon. Still I think I’ll give it a go and watch season 4, it’s definitely sad that the main characters are gone as I don’t really like the character of Jana, still looking forward to how you will interpret the story line this time as the best characters are gone :( Good luck in the show and I’ll miss Maddian :(

  3. In series 1 episode 11 when Maddy & her mother scared that gang of girls off with their wolf eyes and growls, would it be possible for those girls to reappear would they have told anybody what they saw thats more of a chance of the wolfblood secret to be discovered isn’t it?

  4. Maya says:

    This probably isn’t something that you ultimately decide on, but just in case, could we get Leona in more Season 4 behind the scenes interviews? I feel like there’s so little extra content with her in it, and it’d be nice to see more!

  5. Molly says:

    If Aimee Kelly had not left the show would Maddy ever come back?

  6. Pepsi Cola says:

    Hi Debbie! Sorry for the ampunt of questions I’ve recently asked, but I was wondering what do you think of ‘Jaran’, the combination of Jana and Aran? Was there supposed to be a bit of closeness there or have people just assumed that they would be a good couple?

    • debbiemoon says:

      The way we’ve always written and acted the situation, Aran is a lot more interested on Jana than Jana is in him. But certainly, there is a level of closeness there…

      • the steaks are high says:

        just wondering but is there ever a chance of Aran and Jana’s relationship developing, maybe not romantically or even romantically? (those two had incredible and emotive scenes in series three, especially with friends like these, the dark ages and Cerberus..) (and I know it’s foolish to ask for like any info on wolfblood series four because you” say wait and see or no spoilers, but a wolfblood lover has gotta try to ask for spoilers, it’s in our nature!

        can I ask, in the wild do wild wolfbloods have toys or teddy’s or any stimulus for the cubs (except hunting and what not), as after watching grave consequences and Jimi mistakenly believing the bear was called Abraham, it sparked a thought of would wolfbloods have toys, and would they have created them in the wild or would they use natural resources to stimulate the mind…

        What is Sam’s last name? (I’m not sure if the audience has been told his surname, though sorry if I missed it in an episode, as out of the three boys, we know as wolfblood fans that they are: Jimi Chen, Liam Hunter, but not Sam- has he just been a minority character so he hasn’t needed a last name?)

        Last year some sites revealed series 3 plot just before wolfblood was released on CBBC, revealing many spoilers like Gerwyn and Aran and Ceri staying in the humanworld and what not, and the year before ZDF productions (even though they are technically allowed) released a trailer and the entire series 2 plot a few weeks before wolfblood series 2 was released, and my question is, can you or any one or the wolfblood team like stop sites from showing the spoilers before the episode has been released? I understand how it is technically our own faults for reading and watching the spoilers, but sometimes the titles can be rather vague so you click on the site and you’ve landed in a pool of spoilers! (although the series 4 synopsis that was published on the 28th of September was good, as it had vague rough hardly any spoilers in it!). Is there anyway to prevent sites for spoiling the plot or whatever when wolfblood is released next year or not? (sorry if that sounded confusing!)

        I always love in wolfblood, with the exception of Sam (in my opinion) , how everyone develops in wolfblood and how relationships wax and wane into something so natural for that time in the series- it stills baffles me how Maddy and Rhydian ever got together yet it is so logical and natural (and I think every fan agrees with you how Maddy and Rhydian don’t just fall in love straight away but it develops over times and suddenly their feelings mature and become deeper- and especially for a children’s (which doesn’t feel like it) programme, for writers to write that with clarity and in a way young people won’t be put off by all the romance or be confused to why the romance has just happened, is so hard). I am not surprised at all you won a BAAFTA last year, I nearly dismissed your wonderful news because it felt normal for you to win! And it’s the other writers too (I was rather sad to see James Whitehouse and Hannah George wasn’t writing this year, like the wolfblood fans are grieving over the loss of the original pack, I’m grieving over the loss of the wolfblood veterans!), and for everyone by the end of writing it to create such sync characters and developed plots is extraordinary- forget wolfbloods, focus on the development of characters- that’s more life changing! Sorry I’m rambling, though seriously it’s easy to write a four to five thousand word essay on the plot structure, easy few thousand on characters and a easy few thousand on character developments, and that’s excluding the whole wolfblood world and what it means to be a wolfblood- you could write a million essays on wolfblood, it’s that detailed for forty episodes (if you add the scapegoat and Jana bites together as it makes thirty minutes even if it isn’t in the right order…) and we are still waiting for series 4! (another twelve!) And I honestly believe you when you say its the best one yet, after three years of reading and watching wolfblood and every day viewing this site, and even though the ‘as always no spoilers!’ is like the catchphrase all fans secretly hail, I know you won’t reveal anything for our benefit, and that we will all be thoroughly surprised and won’t be expecting whatever you throw at us because if there’s one word to sum wolfblood up is gonna be unpredictable! Sorry for like spamming you with knowledge you know, but writers and the creator of wolfblood always need reminding that they create the beauty we watch, and you’re the creator of wolfblood- a celebrity and inspiration in millions of hearts, and so many people admire you- forget buffy or Logan you’re my hero, especially as you keep creating mind blowing sunning seasons that reflect teenage life and insecurities so well, thank you so much.

      • debbiemoon says:

        I think it’s unlikely that a children’s show would ever pursue a romance between them, given the age gap…
        Yes, I would think Wolfblood parents make toys for their cubs, as humans in ‘primitive’ societies have always done.
        I’ve just been through the series bible, and astoundingly, Sam’s last name isn’t in there! I may have to do some digging…
        Nothing we can do about spoilers, sorry.

        Glad you’re enjoying the show!

      • So is Aran attracted to Jana then? Obviously Jana is a school girl, but how old exactly is Aran? I really like the friendship, and if he does ‘like’ her, do you think he would become jealous if she were to date somebody? I always got the impression that Aran didn’t like Rhydian all that much. Was he jealous of his friendship with Jana? Did he worry Jana and Rhydian would end up together?

        By the way, I think its sad how many people are practically giving up on the show because the main four characters have left. I’m personally excited about the new characters coming into the show. Obviously, its sad the others have left, but could we really expect them to stay on the show forever? I dont think so. I actually think their decisions to leave were admirable, especially Aimee Kelly, because she put schooling first, which is, in my opinion, a good role model for children.

        Also, I was wondering if you had any other books out? I loved Falling and i’d really like to read more of your work. Thanks :)

      • debbiemoon says:

        Aran’s probably mid-twenties, so there is an age gap there. As for jealousy… maybe. Though with Rhydian, it was mostly fear Jana would become ‘tame’ around him and abandon the pack.
        No, Falling is the only book I’ve written. I keep thinking I should write another, but books take a lot longer than screenplays and I never seem to have the time…

  7. Maya says:

    Is there any chance of seeing Jana and Meinir getting along better this season? Their interactions have always been slightly antagonistic, but now that Meinir is human, could they possibly be friends? Or atleast friendly? I kind of saw them as a big sister/ little sister relationship occasionally with Meinir being jealous of Jana and annoyed that she was the alpha.

    Jana’s going to be the main character now? That’s a shame, I’ve never particularly liked her much. I agree with you that it’s good for the other characters to have left though, as fresh characters are always needed and the former ones were getting a bit old and are now in their twenties, although Jana is the same age as them.

    Hi, I hope the filming and things are going well, and the way you hoped :) I’m excited to see season 4 when it comes!

    I was wondering– say a wild wolfblood was with a human(no wolfblood genes AT ALL) once, then had a wolfblood child, and that child went into the wild and had children with a wild wolfblood. Could the human gene survive past a generation or two to have a human child from two wild wolfbloods from a recessive gene in the future if all the next generations between were all wild wolfbloods? I think the main difference with the DNA between tame and wild wolfbloods in season 3 was that the tame DNA looked like an almost dilute version as they had evolved away from their instincts so I wondered if the wild DNA would be too strong for a recessive gene to survive or not??

    If it couldn’t survive past many generations, could it even survive past one or two to have a human child from two wild wolfbloods in general?

    Thanks for all your time answering my questions in the past and now :)

    • debbiemoon says:

      We’ve always said offspring are either Wolfblood or human, no recessive genes. After all, if Wolfblood children were born to humans, the secret would have come out centuries ago!

  10. Aman says:

    Really sad that Maddy, Rhydian, Tom and Shannon are leaving the show. The show will never be the same. Yeah I know, they’re moving to greater things but at the end of the day, Wolfblood will never ever be the same without the four amazing characters who are leaving unfortunately.

  11. I’m not sure if this has been asked before, but are Wolfbloods afraid of fireworks like dogs are? Would wild wolfbloods be more frightened as they have less understanding of them? Or would fireworks not bother them at all? Thanks :)

    • debbiemoon says:

      I would think most Wolfbloods living among humans have more or less got over that fear, because they’d have to. Wild Wolfbloods would be more scared, of course…

  12. the steaks are high says:

    Well wolfblood comic motion, the brand new, new moon rising has well and truly lived up to the wolfblood standards and raised them! I do think how the wolfblood world can expand each series and just watching five minutes of the prequel series makes me realise it’s wolfblood and anything is possible! Wolfblood is just growing and growing, reinventing itself yet still has that wolfblood feel to it and it is awesome, I can wait until next year because these online comics mini episodes will be thrilling! Absolutely stunning and alas I have no social media but if you could tell yourself and your wonderful modest writers how utterly clever they are and pure genius’s who probably have the brainpower to take over the world I’d be extremely grateful! I have a strong feeling that people who thought wolfblood as only wolfblood was good because of the original pack and that series 4 would be rubbish will be seriously rethinking that opinion, wolfblood is the greatest universe and so brilliant! How do you do it?

    What happened to the Smith’s car? Was it taken by segolia, or did they take it on the cargo ship to Canada?

    On average, how many wolfbloods work in segolia- a few in each department or specific amount like twenty or what not?

    Are all wolfbloods AB negative, if so does that mean that the wolfblood population is around one percent?

    Do you know how many departments there are in Segolia? What kind of things does segolia do that we, as the viewers, may have not seen? (no spoilers intended if that question has the potential to spoil series 4!)

    this may sound weird, but are you happy that wolfblood fans have reacted so emotively to the departure of the original pack? Like how everyone has gotten so attached to your characters and their developments that they are effectively broken inside by the mere thought of them not being in wolfblood? (yeah it sounds a little confusing, and odd to ask but many wolfblood fans sorta send messages on how they like aren’t fond of wolfblood anymore because Rhydian has left, or Shan and Tom- in a way if you look on the brighter side of that you can see how the character development, the amazing acting and the plotlines that occurred paid off and you’ve created memorable characters who will live on forever!)

    thanks for your time, it’s a pleasure to be able to write (or ramble) to a genius!

    • debbiemoon says:

      I expect Segolia took the car away and found a use for it…
      Wolfbloods in Segolia: a few on the board and in high positions, quite a few in security, and a very few scattered through other departments.
      Mostly Segolia does all the normal things a major company does, and a few Wolfblood-related things. You’ll find out more in season four…
      The world Wolfblood population is considerably less than 1%. Perhaps no more than a few tens of thousands.
      It’s fantastic, of course, that people love the characters so much…

  13. Do you think we will ever find out what happened to Jana’s mother? (Or has that already been told somewhere?) I cant help but feel that, while Alric loves Jana very much, there is some sort aggravation there? Does she maybe look like her mother? Given that he lied to her and practically disowned her, surely there is a reason a father could bring himself to do that? Was it really just betrayal from her going into the human world, or was it something mentally to do with her mother?

    I loved the first part of the wolfblood comic, and I was wondering if it will be published in book form at any point or is it only an online thing? Also, do you think there will be more comics? If there isn’t a season 5, could we maybe get comics to continue the story? (Obviously, we’re all sitting here hoping the show will go on forever)

    I also dont know if its been discussed, but what happened to Aran & Meinir’s parents?

    Finally, if Rhydian is no longer a part of the show, does that mean Ceri and Gerwyn will no longer play a part, given that Maddy’s parents no longer featured after her departure? Or is that something we’ll just have to wait and see?

    Thank you for your time, its very admirable how you talk to your fans :)

    • debbiemoon says:

      We may find out what happened to Jana’s mother at some point. The writers have always worked on the assumption that she died – and given Alric’s irrational hatred of humans and rejection of Jana when she comes to love the human world, perhaps humans were involved…

      As far as I know, CBBC will only publish the comic online. As for other comics, that would probably require a comics publisher to approach CBBC wanting to do them – but I suppose it’s possible.

      Aran and Meinir’s parents are still alive and with the pack – we’ve just never focused on them.

      It’s possible that Ceri and Gerwyn will return at some point – but we’d have to find a story in which they could play a significant role. Bringing them back just to bring them back wouldn’t be satisfying for anyone…

  14. George says:

    Hi Debbie,
    Is the wolfblood comic the only content between series or is there anymore?

  15. There’s loads of wolfblood games on the cbbc website.

  16. Caroline says:

    Is there any possible way I could read the new comic? I live in the US, and it seems that you can only get to the CBBC websites if you live in the UK.

  17. Matthew On says:

    I think wolfblood is an amazing show because it covers different aspects of life that connects the audience to the characters. Has any one of you watched Wolf Children? The concept seems kind of similar to Wolfblood.

  18. ALPHA says:

    Too bad people threaten to sue wolfblood for “stealing” ideas i would be interesting to see how the scene worked out.

  19. faith says:

    I dont think anyone us going to want to watch it with out the original cast in it you already lost a lot of viewers due to maddie leaving the shiw and it would be hard to make a fourth season without maddie in it mainly because in the last episode of the third season you brought maddie back as a wolf and it wouldnt be very good if you only ever saw her as a wolf it wouldnt make sense if you were going to make a fourth season you shouldnt have made it to where ridian goes to canada

  20. I was just wondering if you have a copy of the 2016 wolfblood calender? Mine arrived and I have a question about the month of October. There is a picture of Aran and Alric, it looks as though Alric is touching Aran’s face? Which scene is that from as I dont recognize it? The scenery in the picture looks like it may be from the last episode of season 3 but I dont recall seeing the scene. Are there deleted scenes? Thanks :)

    • debbiemoon says:

      Hmm, that’s a good point – my calendar hasn’t turned up yet.
      When it does, I’ll take a look, but bearing in mind that I’m not on set all the time, if it is a shot that wasn’t used in the episode, I might not recognise it either!
      Certainly there were scenes that were cut from S3 ep 13, but I think most of them were cut before being filmed. However, some may have been filmed and cut later…

      • Thanks for answering all of my questions :) Just one more thing about the calender picture, was there actually a part written in the script for episode 13 for Alric & Aran to have a scene, which could have had the part where he touched his face? So if the scene was deleted, did you write it and know of it? If that makes sense? I’m just really curious.

      • debbiemoon says:

        I don’t remember any scene like that – but the gesture could easily be something the actors improvised on the day…

      • Ok, Thankyou :) If it was a cut scene, that’d be a shame because I always thought Aran to be very loyal to Alric, and it would have been nice to see some sort of friendship still in tact, which the picture seemed to show. Do you know if there is any way of seeing the deleted scenes (Will they ever be released) or are they gone forever? :(

      • debbiemoon says:

        They’re probably stored away somewhere, but whether they’ll ever be seen is anyone’s guess…

  21. Megan says:

    I read that you said the wild wolfbloods speak Welsh and was wondering what names Ceri calls Rhydian and Jana. It is a name of endearment but I was not sure what those names were or the meanings.

  22. Grace says:

    Is there a motion comic available for people in the US?

  23. Faith says:

    Could you PLEASE make a version of tye motion comic available to the US! I REALLY want to read it!

  24. wolfAD2312 says:

    Hi Debbie! I have one question. Do wild Wolfbloods and tame Wolfbloods have any differences in DNA, or blood or something like that? Or is it just the way they behave/act and like different things? P.S, your name and Jonathan Wolfman’s is quite a coincidence, right? Thanks! I love Wolfblood!!

  25. hi debbie glad to hear the last 4 season 4 episodes are being worked on :) can’t wait till next year when it’s on our tv screens just wanting to ask when can we expect a trailer for the new season :)?

  26. kkstefos says:

    In season 1 in the vandalism episode Maddy thinks Tom is the vandal and checks his shoes. Couldnt it be Tom? He was angry and when Shan told them about the UV paint Tom was there and could have cleaned it off after.

    • debbiemoon says:

      Won’t discuss details here, because spoilers, but – it’s explained very clearly in the episode who does it, and why.

      • kkstefos says:

        I mean wasn’t Maddy’s thought appealing? Tom’s father left him hanging and when Shannon discussed with Tom, Rhydian and Maddy about the UV paint Tom could have cleaned it up and then Maddy checked his shoes not finding something

      • debbiemoon says:

        It’s a red herring (a fake suspect to distract the audience). If it wasn’t ‘appealing’, it wouldn’t be any use.

  27. Hi! Some few questiones I have

    1) How much hours the working day take? I mean from the morning to the afternoon?

    2) How much gets you to write a full season?

    3) It’s true of the behind-the-scenes drama of Aimee and Bobby before in 2013?

    4) How you get the idea of “Wolfblood”?

    5) DId you shot another pilot before the “now” Wolfblood?

    6) How you create a series?

    7) How they edited?

    8 (Last) Did you put the episodes on air in a meeting or CBBC plan it?

    • debbiemoon says:

      1) twelve to fourteen hours, but not every actor is in every scene, so it varies.
      2) can’t answer financial questions, sorry. That’s confidential information.
      3) I don’t know what ‘behind the scenes drama’ you’re talking about, sorry.
      4) that’s answered in the FAQ.
      5) No, we don’t shoot pilots in the UK – we shoot the whole first season at once.
      6) also answered in the FAQ (in the same post as how I got the idea)
      7) “Editing” can mean working on the scripts, or working on filmed footage. Which one do you mean?
      8) I don’t understand the question. Do you mean “Who decides when the episodes are shown?” CBBC decide that.

  28. Maya says:

    Hi :) Just wanted to say that I am loving the online Wolfblood motion comic. Whoever had the idea to create that extra content was brilliant because it answers some questions and is entertaining at the same time. I read how Shannon & Tom were visiting Maddy & Rhydian in Canada, but I was wondering about what explanation will be given as to why they aren’t seen with Jana in Series 4? I assume they’ll go back to England at the end of their visit. Should we just assume that both Shannon and Tom go off to university in different locations far away from Jana while she stays working for Segolia and that’s why they aren’t on screen?

  29. Aaron says:

    Hi Debbie, would there ever be novelizations of between seasons going more into depth on Maddy and rhydian’s relationship as that was my favourite aspect of the entire show. I loved that they kissed in the s2 finale but would love to know what happens when rhydian lives with Maddy and co post season 3,if this is possible I’d be over the moon

  30. Katie says:

    Is there like a set amount of violence/ gore you can show on Wolfblood? Obviously I know it’s a show intended for children, so certain things are verboten, but Jana was shot in Season 3 yet we didn’t see much blood. Rhydian and Jimi used to get into fights, but no one really ever got punched. Alric seemed extremely unhinged as Season 2 progressed but never physically tried to claw at Rhydian or anything. Was this because of restrictions or just easier/ quicker not to have to choreograph fight scenes?

  31. kkstefos says:

    How do you choose the general theme of a show/book? I find it difficult to make the choice: supernatural or a more casual theme?
