The CBBC fantasy drama Wolfblood
returns to TV screens next month for a 13-part second series plus a spin-off programme.
The action show follows the lives of teenagers Maddy, played by Aimee Kelly
, and Rhydian, portrayed by Bobby Lockwood
, and their secret lives as wolfbloods.
Wolfbloods such as Maddy and Rhydian have razor-sharp senses with an amazing sense of smell and are incredibly fast and super-strong. They also change into wolves every full moon . . .
The intense trials and tribulations of school, friendships, heartbreak, and mystery continue in this second series, as Rhydian unexpectedly returns to Stoneybridge, putting Maddy and her family in danger.
In addition to the new episodes on CBBC, there will also be a "secret" 14th episode that will be shown on the CBBC Red Button and CBBC website, plus a new game that will also be on the CBBC website.Spencer Campbell
, the show's executive producer, said:
We had a great reaction to the first series and are looking forward to introducing some exciting new characters this time round. Series two is packed full of surprises. Maddy and Rhydian are still learning about who they are, whilst trying to avoid discovery, and I think they have grown up a lot. It may be complicated being a teenager, but it's even more difficult when you're a wolfblood teenager!
The 30-minute episodes, which co-star Louisa Connolly-Burnham
as Shannon and Kedar Williams-Stirling
as Tom, were filmed entirely on location in Northumberland. The show has been produced by Foz Allan
, with the visual effects by Munich-based Trixter
The programme was created by Debbie Moon
and is a co-production between CBBC and ZDF/ZDFE.
