Wolfblood FAQ

Welcome to the new updated Wolfblood FAQ! Let’s get straight into the questions…

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 return to season four? What about the rest of the cast, will they still be in the show?

Aimee Kelly has already said she’s too busy at college to return to the show for season four. (And since so many people have asked – no, we won’t recast the role. That’s never convincing. We’ll simply continue without the character of Maddy.)

As for the rest of the cast, we don’t know yet who’ll be in the show and who won’t. We’ll  make an announcement as soon as we can.

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?

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

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 whether they’ll be a fifth season, or how long the show will run for.

Why do you make 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!

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

There’s no point in contacting me to ask about transmission dates for your country, because that’s not part of my job. 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),  you’re much more likely to get an accurate answer from the channel than from me. So contact them directly, and they should be able to give you an answer.

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.

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 Klause White, performed by Lisa Knapp. The soundtrack isn’t available to buy yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that changed soon…

Do you use real wolves when filming the show?

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

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 a summary of 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 on Redbubble – T-shirts, tote bags, etc.

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.

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.

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?

No, 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.

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

Realistically, 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 the way to go. Concentrate instead on creating a career for yourself, not just getting this one job.

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… I’m 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.

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, 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.

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 seven and nine working days to shoot an episode, depending on how many moves between locations, how many stunts, and how many complicated scenes there are.

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 mostly in nearby Newcastle-Upon-Tyne.

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.

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 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…

Why is Doctor Whitewood played by a different actor in season three?

The actress who played Doctor Whitewood in season two wasn’t available for the filming of season three, so we had to re-cast at fairly short notice.

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 ever write something for Wolfblood, look at it and think, ‘Oh wait, this is a children’s programme… I can’t write that.’?

We’re all aware of the things that are definitely forbidden: killing, explicit violence, sexual content other than an occasional kiss, etc. But actually, you can tackle most subjects on children’s TV if you frame them in the right way. In season one, we dealt with the care system, verbally abusive parents, cheating in exams, kidnapping, theft, and Shannon being wrongly been sent to a psychologist, all of which is pretty heavy stuff. It’s often a matter of the way you tackle the subject, not what the subject is…

If you had the chance to become a wolfblood, would you?

It would be nice to be athletic, and the sight and hearing would be useful. On the other hand, I’m really bad at keeping secrets – so I’d better say no…

If you were a wolfblood, would you want to be tame or wild?

As much I love wandering around in the countryside, I think I’d have to go for ‘tame’ in the end. I couldn’t do without a bath and a nice comfy bed!

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…)

My question isn’t answered here!

If your question really isn’t answered here, then PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY before posting your question below.

– 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 bother asking 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 son Tommy has always been a bit wild at heart. Wolfblood has given him a sense of normalcy that he couldn’t find before as he has coped with being the new kid. He has his own problems with fitting in as a homeschool student and in our blended family. He relates to Rydian on so many levels. One thing he would like to know “Is there a particular myth or legend that inspired Wolfblood as opposed to the typical werewolf scenarios?”

    • debbiemoon says:

      I’m glad he’s enjoying it!

      There wasn’t any one legend or myth that inspired Wolfblood: obviously I drew on all the werewolf legends, but I took what I wanted and made up new elements when I needed them. The other thing I thought about a lot was superhero stories, especially The X-Men and The Incredible Hulk – people with incredible, sometimes dangerous, abilities fitting in and learning to be themselves…

  2. Aitana says:

    Hello! I wanna tell you how much this show means to me! Its not just a great show… I love it because i feel like i can connect with maddie. Shes always been sort of rebelious towards her mom. You know, wanting to use eolas and wanting to be wild on full moons amd stuff like that. I just feel like if i were a wolfblood thats exactly how i would be and ive always loved the thought of werewolves so when i discovered this show i was elated! I really do love this show and cant wait to see what wonderful things you bring out in the next season.

  3. Lors_WolfbloodFanatic says:

    I noticed that Maddy’s and Rhydian’s parents are both wolfbloods, what happens if one parent is wolfblood and the other is a human?

    In series 2 Shannon takes all the dolhdrenc and gets heightened senses of smell and hearing – ‘wolfblood symptoms’ as she calls it, is it possible to become a wolfblood, or do you, as Maddy says, do you have to be born one?

    • debbiemoon says:

      That’s answered in the FAQ.

      As explained in the episode, Shannon has symptoms that resemble Wolfblood hearing and sense of smell etc – but she’s not actually becoming a Wolfblood. You have to be born one.

      • KosStef says:

        Yes but in season 3 Cencaid(cannot spell his name) created that “injection” that made Tom a wolfblood.

      • debbiemoon says:

        As he said himself, Kincaid created a serum that gave human Wolfblood-like abilities: sight, hearing, speed, etc.

  4. Lors_WolfbloodFanatic says:

    1) Do you believe in wolfbloods/werewolves and other mystical/mythical creatures?
    2) If you don’t isn’t it quite hard to write the script?

    • debbiemoon says:

      1) That’s answered in the FAQ. You’re asking a lot of questions that are already answered there: please read the FAQ thoroughly before asking any more!
      2) Absolutely not. Does Joss Whedon need to believe Iron Man is real in order to write an Avengers script? Well, neither do I.

  5. […] and Neil Jones, joined by new arrivals Furquan Akhtar and Matt Sinclair. Debbie has announced on her official site that while an air date has yet to be announced, she will be writing four episodes on her official […]

  6. Oona says:

    Hi. I know you don’t like suggestions for the script and everything…but could you put a really kick-ass female tomboyish character in the series? Maddie and Shannon were awesome, and so is Jana, but they’re a bit girly at times and the three Ks, though they’re strong and independent, they’re definitely girly. I know I’d just like to see a tomboy there. Also… if you got the chance, would you write for Dr Who?

    • debbiemoon says:

      Jana isn’t tomboyish enough for you?
      To take your question more literally, though: we’re never going to have a “kick-ass” character in Wolfblood, male or female, because no children’s programme would ever advocate solving problems with violence. Our characters always use compromise and cleverness to solve problems, never brute force. (And we don’t have the budget to shoot fight scenes anyway!)

  7. Ryan says:

    After Bryn left did he become a lone wolf or came to a different pack all I want to know where Bryn went after leaving

  8. Ophie says:

    This might sound like a weird question, but were the actresses who played Maddy, Jana, and Shannon not allowed to wear any makeup, nail polish, or stuff like that while they were in character filming? Or like a very tiny amount? Compared to the three K’s, it often looked like they were fresh faced with no eyeliner or anything. Was it to make them look more believable as 14/15 year olds when the actresses were older than that?

    • debbiemoon says:

      Everyone – including the male actors – wears a small amount of makeup during filming. Without it, they’d look pale and sickly on camera. But yes, the K’s wear much more, while Jana, Maddy and Shannon are made up to look as if they’re not wearing any…

  9. Aalijha says:

    At the end is season 3 the last 2 minutes rhyden meets up with Maddy in wolf form, so how is it possible that Maddy won’t be in season 4 when she made an appearance already making it seem as if she would be in the next season??

    • debbiemoon says:

      If anything, that scene implies she won’t be in season four, not that she will be. We see her happily settled in Canada – and the show’s not set in Canada, so there’s a clear implication that she won’t be in the show again.

      • Lauren Solomon says:

        I’m sorry; I love you’re episodes and everything, but I’m kinda at a loss for how that shows she won’t be coming back. I mean, I understand that she is happily settled and everything, but Rhydian wouldn’t just go back to Britain because Maddie didn’t want to leave Canada. Is this supposed to show that Bobby isn’t coming back for season 4 either? Or do they just decide that they don’t really love each other, so they do actually split? In this scene of the show, I thought it either implied that both would be going back to Stonybridge, or neither of them would.

      • debbiemoon says:

        As always, no spoilers! You’ll just have to wait and see…

      • KosStef says:

        Ever again?

  10. Ophie says:

    In the Dark Moon episode from Season 1, wouldn’t Tom’s mom (as the doctor) or the hospital been in serious legal trouble for taking the blood of two minors without parental/guardian consent? Since neither Maddy or Rhydian seemed in immediate danger, wouldn’t they have had to keep trying to contact Mrs. Vaughn or Maddy’s parents before doing anything? Or a teacher should have been around with the four of them?

  11. Aitana says:

    Is your goal to have wolfbloods and humans be more exposed to eachother? Like the stuff with segolia where a bunch of humans knew? I assume thats where you’ll be going with season four.

  12. Aitana says:

    Was there a change in eyes(contacts) after season one? It appears so.

  13. Ryan Lee says:

    Now that there’s gonna be a season 4 of Wolfblood, is there gonna be a new enemy or a new threat?

  14. Ryan Lee says:

    The way I meant to ask was: Now that there’s gonna be a season 4 of Wolfblood, is it possible that there’s gonna be a new enemy or a new threat?

    • George says:

      There probably will be, it’s the bases of every story. How the characters can over come the problem or the problem over comes them.

  15. lilly says:

    i cant wait and se becaue i live in germany

  16. Winnie says:

    At the end of the latest season, Rhydian went to Maddy in Canada. So will Rhydian stay in Canada with Maddy. Or will he come back?

  17. Lors_WolfbloodFanatic says:

    Is the scar on Bobby’s forehead real or for the purpose of the show?

  18. alexis says:

    Ok thanks I love wolf blood so much it is not funny …….😘😘😘😘😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😁😁😁😁😊😊😊💙💙💙💙💚💚💚💚💚💚❤❤❤💟💟💟💞💞💞💝💝💘💘💘💘💘💘💘💗💗💗💖💖💕💕💓💓💜

  19. s says:

    i was waiting all season 3 for maddy AKA ( aimee kelly ) and now that she is not coming it makes wolfblood not the same
    CBBC you need to bring her back at-least for 1 episode :”(

    • debbiemoon says:

      I don’t think you read the FAQ properly. Aimee Kelly chose to leave. Her decision, not ours. We can’t force her to be in a show she doesn’t wish to be in.

  20. George says:

    If you could sum up series 4 in one word, what
    would it be? Other than exciting, good, different etc

  21. Rosie says:

    I read the FAQ but I didn’t see anything specific I think, so I was wondering: Is there a particular reason you chose the show setting as Northumbria or was it just a good location overall?

  22. Taslima says:

    I really love watching Wolfblood so I wanna talk to Aimee Kelly and Bobby lockwood

  23. Germany says:

    I have a question, will season 4 be on Netflix?

  24. kaitlyn says:

    In the episode where Jana takes carri to parents evening (I know this sounds stupid) but does carri actually eat raw meat?

  25. maike says:

    what think mr sheefry ( its that corect ? ) abaut wolfbloods

  26. Wolfy says:

    Do you think Jeffries and whitewood would make an ‘interesting’ couple?:-)

  27. Hi Debbie, I was wondering how you deal with getting occasional hate messages? I know you can never please everybody, but I find it so sad that people feel the need to blame you or the show for Aimee Kelly’s decision. I completely respect that she chose to continue schooling, surely that is inspiring for younger viewers to care about their education? I’m sure it wasn’t an easy decision for her after all. But your patience with these kind of fans is very inspirational to me.

    Also, I’m not sure if this has been asked before (And I’m sorry if it has) but are any of your characters based on real people?

    And when you started writing wolfblood, did you always intend for it to be a childrens show, and would you say that it is easier or harder to write for children?

    And finally, I’m not sure if you’ll answer this as its not exactly based on wolfblood (And its kind of nosey) But do you have any pets? And if so, what are their names? For some reason I’m really curious on that lol.

    Thanks :)

    • debbiemoon says:

      Mostly I just remind myself that most of the site users are very young and maybe don’t know how to behave yet…
      No, the characters aren’t based on real people. Now and then writers take a single element from a real person, but just putting a real person into a fictional context is harder than it sounds.
      Wolfblood was always intended to be a children’s show. I don’t know if it’s harder, but it’s certainly not easier to write for children than grown-ups: they’re just as smart, engaged, and quick to spot bad writing!
      I don’t actually have any pets: the lease on my apartment says no pets. Maybe in the future!

  28. Tsvetan says:

    Hello Debbiemoon, I am so trilled to see you spend so much time answering so many questions. That means a lot for us (the fans). I am not here to ask you any questions, I am just here to share with you how much I liked the Wolfblood series. At first when I saw the show I was like “what is this crap”, but then I decided to give it a chance, and I really liked it. I am not the type of guy who downloads series and watches them on their laptop or computer, but when season 2, and the same with season 3 came, I watched them in a day. I didn’t sleep just to watch them. Was a bit disappointed about Aimee Kelly not being in the show, but that didn’t stop it from being awesome. So I wish you nothing but the best, and keep on making us(the fans) happy, Debbie. :)

  29. Jaeda says:

    If Aimee Kelly wasn’t going to return to season 4 of WolfBlood then why did it show Bobby Lockwood meeting with her at the end of season 3? I personally cant wait for season 4, however the fact that Aimee Kelly won’t be in it take away some of my enthusiasm for it.

    • debbiemoon says:

      Why? So that we could, at least, conclude their story.

      • Lana says:

        Thank you for even bothering to conclude their story! Seriously, you could have left it open ended or whatever, but thank you for even taking the time to give the characters a happy ending together. I loved that ending scene! :)

  30. I know where you’re coming from. I totally ship them. They are so cute in my mind!

    Hi debbiemoon, I just wanted to say and am a big wolfblood fan and I was wondering do you think maddy will be on season 5 if you make one?

  32. Wolfy says:

    What happened to rhydians bag when he went to the wild?(he left with it in irresistible and came bal in leader of the pack without it yet he uses it for school)
    Who was in charge(alpha) of the wild pack when alric and the betas was chasing rhydian in leader of the pack?
    Cheers! I’m extremely grateful for replying!

    • debbiemoon says:

      I expect he bought another one when he came back.
      I can’t see Alric handing control of the pack to anyone, even temporarily! He only expected to be away for a day or two, so he probably told them to carry on as normal…

      • Sarah says:

        Hey Debbie, I am obsessed with Wolfblood and my favorite character is Maddy so for season 4 will she be in at least one or two episodes? Also, can please tell Amiee Kelly that a lot of Wolfblood fans, including me, really want her to come back to the show in possible future seasons? Thanks!!!:)
        P.S. I am super excited for season 4!!!

      • debbiemoon says:

        As I said in the FAQ, Aimee Kelly will not be in season 4.

  33. Wbfm says:

    I think that Wolfblood looks more like teen series.

  34. Kelli says:

    Why did cbbc stop showing wolfblood on Disney channel?

  35. Kelli says:

    Are there any places near Maryland or websites where u can get fake yellow contacts or teeth like the wolfblood cast?

    • debbiemoon says:

      I live in the UK – how would I know anything about shops in Maryland? Try Google.

    • Do you have any make-up stores in your area? I usually find colored contacts in make up shops, or joke shops. I would say that you could order them offline, but you can never be completely sure that they are safe. I’d say its safer to get them in a store, as I got some offline and I ended up with an eye infection, so be careful. Good luck :)

  36. Joshua says:

    You did recast Doctor Whitewood, though.

  37. KosStef says:

    You already said that Aimee won’t be back for season 4. Here’s my question.
    What about season 5? Do you hope that a season 5 will be commisioned? And is there any hope of Aimee return for season 5?

  38. Don’t you get tired of hearing about fans asking if Aimee is coming back? so many people ask (probably not reading your FAQ at the top!) and it’s not the end of the show without her. For me it’s an insult to the other characters- I feel like if Katrina (for example) left not as many fans would care like they care about Aimee’s departure- yet (for example) katrina is just as important because she’s part of the wolfblood world, the world where it develops, expands, new dangers and themes appear. Wolfblood is wolfblood regardless of Aimee’s departure because even without Aimee in series three- it was still wolfblood. It was different (obviously!) but no one replaced her and there’s always gonna be mads essence left. I mean mads created the first proper pack, exposed the secret to Shan and Tom. The smiths house is still used and rhydians character development has been greatly affected because every action has its developments. I wish so many people wouldn’t insult you by insulting your work that you and other writers do, insulting wolfblood because that show is complete perfection. You’ve done a great job (I don’t think you’ll ever know how epic you are!) as well as the crew, and I feel fans should appreciate everything not just one person. It’s not called the maddy show- it’s wolfblood. Wolfblood is more than one person or one pack. It’s about variety, it’s about different packs- humans or wolfbloods, and acceptance and finding out who they really are as circumstances become major. I feel as if people are forgetting you won a baafta for wolfblood. You know what you’re doing and what’s best for the show and people should honour and respect that or how can fans say they’re fans at all? I know wolfblood series four will not fail to impress and astonish people, and many of us do I just wish all of the guys who want Aimee back know its still wolfblood! Thanks for reading, it just must be painful to read so many messages that are negative (one is enough for a life time) and people should remember you’re the alpha of wolfblood!

    • debbiemoon says:

      People have every right to ask – but the question is answered in the FAQ, and there’s nothing more I can add to that.

    • KosStef says:

      Well you are right. Wolfblood is an epic show(and many more than just epic) but Aimee Kelly had the starring role in it and her leaving wolfblood affected the show. Nobody should blame the writters or the show. But her not being in it left me with a wound right on my heart and it won’t heal. I blame nobody. I Just hope that

  39. Taylor says:

    Hi Debbie I love to write and I actually wrote my own wolfblood story and I believe that it’s good could I do anything with it ? Like how you said their creating wolfblood books could they use mine ?

    • debbiemoon says:

      The book publishers will choose their own writers – usually they have a team of writers who they know can produce material of the right style and length quickly. And the first few books will probably be adaptations of episodes anyway, not original material.

      Obviously you can’t send a Wolfblood story to any other publisher for paid publication, because you don’t own the rights to Wolfblood. No other publisher would publish it, for that reason.

      The one thing you can do with it is publish it on a fan fiction website (something like An Archive Of Our Own, for example). Although fan fiction is technically a breach of copyright, most copyright owners are fine with it – after all, it helps create fans for the series! As long as it’s clearly labelled as fan fiction, or published on a fan fiction site, and you’re not being paid for it, CBBC and the Wolfblood publishers won’t take any legal action against you.

  40. Lauren Solomon says:

    If I wanted to write some fantail to Aimee Kelly, would it still get to her if I used the same address? And do they actually read the mail, like, actually take time to read it and think about what was written?

    • debbiemoon says:

      You can still use that address, yes. As for whether they read it, that’s up to them. I really don’t know. But I see fans on Twitter saying they’ve had replies from the cast, so…

      • Lauren Solomon says:

        Thank you! You’re awesome and I hope you know that we (the fans) are not just saying that; we really mean it.

  41. Ryan says:

    Hi Debbie I was wondering how did Kincaid know where Jana’s pack was in the wild before he kidnapped them.

  42. Emmanuel burden #jeepemajoe says:

  43. Emmanuel burden #jeepemajoe says:
