Wolfblood FAQ

Welcome to the new updated Wolfblood FAQ! 

Last updated on 4th January 2018.

Questions about – Season Six

Will there be a sixth season?

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

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

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

 

Questions about – Season Five

When will season five be on television?

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

Who’s writing season five?

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

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

Who’s in the cast for season five?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Questions about: where and when you can see Wolfblood

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

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

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

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

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

Where can I watch Wolfblood online?

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

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

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

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

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

Wrong. Completely and utterly wrong.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Which awards has Wolfblood been nominated for/ won?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Do you use real wolves when filming the show?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

No. See the next question…

Where is Wolfblood filmed?

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

How do you do the yellow eyes?

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

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

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

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

Questions about: DVDs and merchandise

Will there be a DVD release? 

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

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

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

What about merchandise?

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

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

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

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

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

Are there Wolfblood books?

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

Will there ever be a Wolfblood movie?

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

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

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

You need to have previous acting experience, and an agent, to have a chance of appearing in 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. And if you don’t – well, your first task is to get an agent!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Check out this post

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

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

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

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

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

Questions about: fan mail, contacting the cast

Where can I send fan mail to the cast?

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

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

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

So how can I contact the cast?

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

Questions about: previous episodes, characters and backstory

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

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

What happens to the characters’ clothes when they transform?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

What’s the language spoken by the wild wolfbloods?

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

What’s your favourite episode? Your favourite character?

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

Which character is most like you?

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

Questions about: leaving comments and questions on this site

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

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

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

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

– 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…

Its sad to hear they canceled the show because you are an amazing writer and the show is awesome. I am aware that the show has been canceled but do you think there is a way to change there minds???? THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!!!

  2. justideas70 says:

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

  3. Richard says:

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

  4. Sophie P says:

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

    • debbiemoon says:

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

      • Wolfblood fan says:

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

      • debbiemoon says:

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

      • Sophie P says:

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

  5. danae says:

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

  6. Shadow Ember says:

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

  7. Sophie P says:

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

    I have been wondering about this for a while.

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

    • debbiemoon says:

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

      • Julia Helman says:

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

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

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

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

    • debbiemoon says:

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

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

      • Jake Slaker says:

        can you not send me anymore messeges. 

      • debbiemoon says:

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

    Hello!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  11. James says:

    Who is your favourite character you created in you series?

  12. Yasin says:

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

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

    thanks❤️

    • debbiemoon says:

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

  13. Oren says:

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

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

    Thanks so much for wolfblood!

  14. Yasin says:

    another quick question;

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

    thank you 🙂

    • debbiemoon says:

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

      • Sophie P says:

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

      • debbiemoon says:

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

      • Antonio Ellis says:

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

  15. Moony says:

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

  16. Iris says:

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

    • debbiemoon says:

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

  17. Scott says:

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

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

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

  18. Scott says:

    Sorry, but I had another question.

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

    Thanks and have a great day!

    • debbiemoon says:

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

      • Scott says:

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

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

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

  19. Alex says:

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

    Natasha Goulden (Robyn)
    Decided to stop here before it got to characters more obscure

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

  21. James says:

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

    • debbiemoon says:

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

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

  22. Sophie P says:

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

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

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

    • debbiemoon says:

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

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

  23. Alex says:

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

  24. Heckley Panes says:

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

    • debbiemoon says:

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

      • Wolfblood fan says:

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

      • debbiemoon says:

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

  25. Kenneth English says:

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

  26. Carla says:

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

  27. Olivia says:

    Thanks for your futur answer !

    • Camelia says:

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

      • debbiemoon says:

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

      • Páris says:

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

      • debbiemoon says:

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

  28. Dani says:

    Hi !

    Thx

  29. Janka says:

    Hello, Ms. Moon

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

    Much love xx

    • debbiemoon says:

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