The TV show “Wolf Like Me” is coming back for a second season on the streaming service Peacock, they confirmed on Tuesday.
This isn’t a joke! Isla Fisher, who you might know from “Godmothered”, and Josh Gad, who was in “Frozen”, will both be back to play their characters again. The show, which mixes romance and horror, is made by Abe Forsythe, who also made “Little Monsters”.

Susan Rovner, Chairman of Entertainment Content for NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, said in a statement,
“We are over the moon that Wolf Like Me’s unique and high-stakes love story resonated so strongly with Peacock viewers,” “Josh and Isla’s critically-acclaimed performances in this beloved romantic dramedy were exquisite and we can’t wait to see what Abe Forsythe and our partners at Made Up Stories and Endeavor Content come up with for Season 2.”
“I’m thrilled to be able to continue Mary and Gary’s story into the next phase of their relationship, especially considering the stakes couldn’t be higher,” added Forsythe. “Knowing we have an audience invested in their story is a dream come true for us. Our crew is already having a lot of fun building on what we created with season one, I can’t wait for everyone to experience it alongside our characters.”
The show is about Gary (Gad), a recent widower, and his new girlfriend, Mary (Fisher). As the title suggests, Mary changes into a shaggy wolf-like creature when the full moon rises high in the night sky. Earlier this year, Forsythe talked to SYFY WIRE and explained why he left the supernatural parts of the story in the background for most of the first season. In fact, it isn’t until the last show that we see Mary in her full wolf form.
“It’s tricky. I wanted to tease it,” the author said. “But at the same time, I was so aware that then if we were going to tease it in that way… when we see her at the end, we have to really execute it really, really well in order to make it satisfying. At that point I wanted the audience to be going, ‘Oh f***, that’s right, it’s a werewolf show. And now I don’t want to see the werewolf.’ I wanted them to be just as f***ing scared as Gary and Emma in that situation.”
Fisher, along with Forsythe, Jodi Matterson, Bruna Papandrea, and Steve Hutensky, is also an executive producer. Made Up Stories and Endeavor Content both help make the show.
Matterson, Papandrea, and Hutensky said in a joint statement,
“If people were surprised by Season 1 of Wolf Like Me, we guarantee they will be amazed at what the universe is going to throw at Mary and Gary this time around, “We couldn’t be more excited to be working with Abe, Isla, and Josh again on this truly unique show.”
“We’re excited for Abe Forsythe and Made Up Stories to expand their exceptional storytelling around Mary and Gary’s incredible journey, continuing to engage dedicated Wolf Like Me fans for Season 2,” said Joe Hipps, EVP, TV, Endeavor Content.
All six 30-minute episodes of the first season of Wolf Like Me are now available to watch on Peacock.
