Wolfblood FAQ

Welcome to the new updated Wolfblood FAQ! 

Questions about – Season Four

Will there be a fourth season?

Yes, CBBC have just confirmed that there will be a fourth season. Obviously we have a lot of contractual stuff, and a lot of time in the writers room, to get through before we can announce any specifics about cast, filming dates, transmission dates, or indeed anything else – but as soon as I have more details, I’ll update the FAQ.

So basically, if you have a question about the fourth season and the answer isn’t on the FAQ yet, then I don’t know yet!  :)

The one thing I can confirm is the writing team. 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? 

Simple answer –  Aimee Kelly left the show over two years ago, and currently has no plans to return.

And since people keep asking this questions over and over, let me overstate this a little….That’s no plans to return at all. Not for season four. Not for any future seasons. Not even for one episode. Not at all.

Is there anything we – or you – can do to persuade Aimee Kelly to return? 

Honestly? No. Actors leave shows. That’s a basic fact of television. Change is not only inevitable, it’s good: shows that remain exactly the same forever become stale and boring, to write as well as to watch. And Wolfblood was always a show about a species, not one individual.

It’s been over two years since Aimee Kelly filmed her last scenes: she’s moved on, the show has moved on, and everyone’s just going to have to accept that.

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?

We can’t confirm that yet. It’s going to take a while to sort out which actors are available when, and to negotiate contracts etc. We’ll  make an announcement as soon as we can – though because things often change at short notice, that announcement is unlikely to be made until we start filming…

When will season four start filming?

We don’t know yet. Once we can announce that, we will.

When will season four be on television in the UK?

We don’t know yet. Once we can announce that, we will. However, at this stage it’s more likely to be 2016 than 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).

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

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). 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.

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. They may be right, they may be wrong, but that’s as much as I know…

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 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

http://www.licensing.biz/news/read/bulldog-lands-new-publishing-deal-for-wolfblood/042014

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 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 incredibly unlikely to happen. Like any other profession, you can’t just turn up in the UK and start acting: 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 probably 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, mainly 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 effects company, Trixter.

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 may 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.

I left a response to someone else’s comment, and it never appeared at all!

The FAQ is exactly what that title implies: it’s for asking questions, addressed to me. It’s not for chatting to other fans, arguing about their opinions, speculating about the cast’s love lives, or telling everyone what you think should or will happen next in the show.

With the worldwide success of Wolfblood, I’m getting an average of 25 – 50 comments a week on the FAQ, and when the show’s on TV in the UK, it can be well over a hundred comments a week. The comments section on WordPress isn’t designed for that, and it fills up incredibly quickly. So I’m having to be a lot stricter about this than I used to me.

So please, don’t clutter up the FAQ with your personal chats with other users  – that’s not what it’s for.

You want to chat to other Wolfblood fans? That’s brilliant! Go ahead and do it. But go to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat… Wherever. Not here.

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 repost your question if it doesn’t appear immediately. All comments to this site have to be moderated by me, and if I’m busy, I may not do that for several hours.

– DON’T ASK A QUESTION THAT’S ALREADY ANSWERED IN THE FAQ. You’re just wasting my time, and I’ll probably delete it unanswered.

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

– DON’T ask me to find information for you when you can find it yourself. You want to know if a cast member is on Facebook? Go look on Facebook. You want to know how much a Wolfblood episode is on iTunes? Go look on iTunes.

– 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…

    My friend and I both watch Wolfblood and we love it. We do a wolfblood role play with a few other kids, and, because my friend and I share a birthday, we were wondering if there would be anything special about two wolfbloods born on the same day at the same (or similar) time

  5. Nina says:

    Do wolfbloods live longer than humans?

  6. Wolflover says:

    Thank you Debbie Moon for making this amazing show possible all the characters are amazing actors and especially Rhydian and Maddy. It’s ashame Maddy left but the show goes on terrifically.😃

  9. Thank you Mrs.Moon sorry I didn’t see that in the colum

  10. Hi again Mrs.Moon what was your favorite part about this show that you have created for us

  11. Abby says:

    I wanted to ask how were you inspired to create such an amazing show as wolfblood?

  12. cayli says:

    Hello debbie,
    I was wondering how you felt about mad die leaving? Why did she leave? Would she come back? Why aren’t the producers doing anything, like make a deal she can’t refuse. In my opinion season 4 needs to be all about her and Rhydian and season 5 about them together again at last and at the end he ask her to marry him. Then season 6 and 7 them making a family a pack them facing new things and growing up. And so on. Is there anyway we can persuade amiee to come back? Even if it meant the producers giving her a new contract with more money or something? Please. What if I found a really big fan who is sick and can’t make it, but would really like her to come back? Please anything… I started this show and watched all 3 seasons in 3 days. This show is everything to me. I was so excited when season 3 ended because I thought she would come back. Then I go online and see that she left. . What about all her fans? Does she even care? My other show the vampire diaries just lost there main star because she quit. Why does this keep happening ?
    Doesn’t she understand how much she put reel on us.?
    Please answer all my questions, and I’m sure there will be more.
    Also , is there any way I can contact her through email.
    Thanks

    • debbiemoon says:

      Frankly, attempting to use a sick fan to blackmail an actor into doing something they don’t wish to do is an appalling way to behave, so I sincerely hope that was a misjudged joke…

      The fact is, actors leave shows. That’s part of the natural evolution of a show. I wouldn’t force a reluctant actor to stay even if I could, which I obviously can’t, because actors need to move on and develop their careers – and the show needs to move on too. So, Aimee Kelly won’t be returning to Wolfblood, and the show will continue to grow and expand and show new aspects of the Wolfblood world…

  13. wolfAD2312 says:

    So, since we are already into August, and I assume filming hasn’t started yet, Wolfblood won’t be coming in September this year? Will it be this year at all, or maybe next year?
    Thanks.

  14. Name(required) says:

    It wud be great if u did a character like maddy in maddy cool who was a wolfblood

  15. dotdotdot says:

    In Maddy cool, when Kay was crying in her bathroom because of Maddy splattering her with the cake, and before she was interrupted by kara, Kay opened up to Mads explaining well in a way how she didn’t feel good enough for Dean- I was wondering if like some ‘bullies’ the three K’s feel insecure about who they are-their looks, and personalities, every other social group or pack are a constant threat and that’s why they’re so cold to people at times? sorry if that is a little unclear, I guess I was asking whether kay is insecure about who she is (like a human parallel to the wolfbloods in a way- with everyone having to deal with teenage life and deal with who they are, human or not) and that’s why she bullies?
    terribly sorry for rambling, i think it’s just something that chisels at the back of my mind seeming rather significant but then when I write it down as a question, it seems like an unclear and pointless question- sorry.

    • debbiemoon says:

      Oh, I think all the characters, human or Wolfblood, feel insecure and uncertain a lot of the time. Most teenagers do. So all of them have a journey to make towards accepting their own strengths and weaknesses and being themselves…

      • I think that’s what makes wolfblood stand apart from other shows- the fact that wolfblood tackles not just wolfblood life teenage life or human life, it helps the characters develop through the circumstances in the plot and it makes the characters and the fans question who they are. Not many shows deal with strengths of weaknesses of single characters but its so baffling and amazing how easy the developments are of each character, how they’re forced To deal with whatever comes their way in their own style. How remarkable it is to watch lone wolf then straight after, moonrise and realise how everything has changed. It’s so good to watch a show that makes characters who were once two dimensional (like Liam for example in my opinion! ) then make them three or even four dikeanional in an episode. And you can’t help love the ‘villains’ in wolfblood, knowing that they aren’t deep down evil- they just have different strengths and weaknesses (unlike most villains when you just see the weaknesses) that are different to other characters in the show- it just makes the show so honest about life. So believable!
        Even Kay has to deal with who she is, and its human to bottle things up in the mind and when she realeases her emotions it is released by bullying others(to make people feel smaller than her in a way), I think to make her believe that she is fine yet I think in wolfblood nothing stays hidden forever, even as teens grow up they have to face their own world and Kay became not a bully by the end of Series three but she became herself (in my opinion that’s why Tom fell for her not because she was part of the three k’s but because Kay waterman was herself) and I can’t help but love how as soon as the three k’s are separated for even an episode, they develop just a little it more, and I think for me I always see vulnerability when they are separated- like the wild pack, you put Aran in the human world and he feels trapped. Separate the k’s and you see three teenagers trying to understand everything and everyone in society.
        Sorry I’m rambling, it’s just so extraordinary how deep wolfblood is for a ‘kids’ show. Wolfblood is so charming quick paced yet so detailed and focuses on mainly all the characters (though I’m hoping Sam will be in series four, for me he is a little neglected in the character development area!) and for me you don’t get that a lot even in adult shows! So awesome and wolfblood is just be of those shows you can think about for hours not stop and still find out new and different things that never crossed your mind- so brilliant!

  16. Georgie says:

    Wolfblood is surprisingly professional for a cbbc kids show, the way you never replaced Maddy, and the way you portray the characters with an extra depth. Great going, Mrs. Moon! It would be interesting to see it as a teenage show

  17. Eldore says:

    Can a wolfblood and a human/ a wolf and a wolfblood in wolf form have offspring? If so what are the characteristics of them? Do the humans just have heightened senses and the wolves have a greater rational capacity? Or can the human one become a wolf vice versa?

  18. Michael says:

    You overlooked 1 thing in the show, in season 1 when everythyng started, Maddie claimed that Rhydian is her cousin. But in the end of season 2, the 3 K’s saw them holding hands, and started singing “Rhydian’s got a girlfriend..”. So i was just wondering was it cleared out that they actually aren’t cousin’s and i just missed that or did you just miss that 1 part?

    In episode 3 of series 2 Jana mentions something called the rite of Friogearde. Could you tell me anymore about it?

  20. Melise says:

    I am so happy about the 4th season but I am kind of bummed that Aimee will not be coming back she was my favorite character in the show. But everything else is great! :)

  21. Jennygirl578 says:

    Since she isnt currently returning to the show, it would be neat if you could write short stories about her character for fans, or even if books are ever released explore her character’s new life some. The whole show is fun and you cant help but want to follow it more.

    In the episode where Tom dances with Kay what’s the song called? I think it is Love me again by John Newman

  23. Aimee says:

    Do you know when the scripts will have/been finished for Series 4?

  24. norachantal says:

    Hi Debbie! :)

    Can’t wait until season 4 :) Have you got any information about when will we exactly know about the whole cast list? :) Who will return or who won’t?

  25. Hayden says:

    Hi I have two questions in the same main one, sorry if that’s cheating…

    Question 1)
    When Shannon tells Rhydian about the beast and when it all started she said that her and kay were best friend’s. Was she popular with kay,
    Question 2)
    Why can only some wolfbloods do ansion? Secondly I’m sure the answer to this will be spoilers but would you ever consider a Wolfblood ability that can tell the future, for instance prophecy?

    Can’t wait for s4

    • George says:

      Which episode does Shannon say that she was friends with kay?

    • debbiemoon says:

      1) You mean, were Shannon and Kay both popular? They were young at that point, only 8 or 9, and popularity is a lot less important at that age.
      2) Like most other psychic gifts, real or fictional, ansion is a rare gift only given to a few. As for prophecy, we might: but it makes it very hard to craft a story. Either your character can predict everything that’s going to happen, which is boring, or you have to come up with excuses why their gift isn’t working today. Neither exactly makes for great drama! ;)

    Why does it take until early teen for a wolfblood to be able to transform? Why can’t cubs do it? Have any done it prematurely? What happens?

    • debbiemoon says:

      I suppose it’s a defence mechanism: if baby Wolfbloods were able to transform, without the maturity and self-control to conceal it, Wolfbloods wouldn’t have stayed hidden this long! :) The age of first transformation varies a bit, but it’s linked to teenage hormones, so it’s unlikely anyone younger than 12 or 13 has ever transformed.

  27. Lerir says:

    How does the wild wolfblood have enough members as so to not inbreed? Or do they? Do they do like what the Australian indigenous people used to do and have relationships with other near by packs which they meet and ‘swap’ (well meet) other woolfbloods?

  28. Nathan says:

    Hello Mrs.Moon
    I was wondering, where did you get the contact lenses that are used in the show? I have searched every single site I could that sales these kind of things and I didn’t find any realistic ”wolf eyes” contact lenses like those the actors in Wolfblood are wearing… Did you get them from some kind of lab like the one for the wolf fangs?

  29. Georgie says:

    Does the transformation happen when they hit puberty or after or before?

  30. Jess says:

    Do wolfblood’s packs have a similar hierarchy system as a real wolf pack? I know from the show there are betas and there is the alpha, but is there an alpha male AND an alpha female like in wolf packs or is there only one leader? If there is both do they behave in the mates for life way like what is seen in real wolves?

    • debbiemoon says:

      There is usually a male and a female alpha, but they don’t have to be partners (though they probably often are). They could be brother and sister, mother and son, or entirely unrelated…

  31. wolfAD2312 says:

    When do you think filming will start?

  32. Laura says:

    Hello Debbie,
    What was the original ending to season 2 episode 13 before Aimee Kelly decided to leave?
    Thanks

  33. Kaitlyn says:

    Do u think that Tom is secretly jealous at rydian? He always says stuff to Sharon like “why does every thing always have to be about him” and when Tom got wolf blood abilities he said “oh cause you have to be the speical one” (to rydian this time). P.s. I love this show it’s so cool.😏😊

    • debbiemoon says:

      By season 3, Tom is narked off with the Wolfbloods always getting all the attention and the consideration, and his needs and feelings having to take a back seat all the time. So he’s not jealous of Rhydian, personally, but annoyed that he’s being treated as second-best.

  34. Hayden says:

    When writing wolfblood Do you have to make a story line up before and tie together loose ends to make it detailed and do actors tell you they want to leave before you finish writing?

  35. Meinir says:

    Are there any other wolfblood traditions like how Jana was forced to fight Meinir when she challenged her for alpha, or like how the wild wolfblood pack counldn’t eat meat on that day of the night of the dark moon?

    Also is there anymore abilities that wolfbloods have like eolas and ansin?

  36. kkstefos says:

    If you had to choose another mythical creature to add it in wolfblood, what would it be? I would choose shapeshifters as it is the closest one to wolfbloods and would present it as a special kind of wolfblood that can take various animal forms

  37. Feni says:

    Is magic attached to wolfblood healing? I was wondering because Ceri appears to do something similar to magic i think when she stopped Jana from turning back into human form when the vet had her under anesthetic

  38. Nina says:

    Since wolf bloods are part wolf does that mean that they are not able to catch all human diseases? Does that also mean that they can get sick from diseases a wolf would catch?

  39. Elsbeth says:

    What happens to wolfbloods when the full moon is seen in the sky during the day? Do they turn all day and night or do they only turn when the sun goes down?
