Spoiler-Free Review of “Wolf Pack” on Paramount+: Queen SMG is back on the small screen!

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“The worst is over…”

Wolf Pack released on January 26th 2023 with its premiere episode. There will be eight episodes in total that will air weekly. The supernatural YA series (from the creator of Teen Wolf) stars Sarah Michelle Gellar, Rodrigo Santoro, Bella Shepard, and Armani Jackson. Each episodes is approximately 44-52 minutes.

After a wildfire in California, a supernatural creature emerges, changing the lives of a teenage girl and boy.

Here is the trailer:

Wolf Pack brings Sarah Michelle Gellar back to the supernatural world, but is there enough content here? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Solid opening.

I was expecting a whole bunch of fluff and introductory garbage since this is a YA supernatural drama, but I was pleasantly surprised by how this show actually opened. It started off with a bang and I absolutely loved it. 

The show needs to channel this vibe for the remainder of the episodes because I absolutely loved the pacing. More please!

The Queen returns!

Well, in this show she’s an arson specialist investigating the fire, but I’ll take it! Anything to get Sarah Michelle Gellar back on the small screen. She is the MAIN reason why I tuned into this one and even though we didn’t get to see her too much in the premiere episode, I’m looking forward to exploring her new character.

So excited!

The Cons:

Needs more bite…

The opening really packed a punch, but the rest of the premiere episode calmed down after that. I enjoyed it, but it needs to be careful about depending too heavily on YA tropes. I want to keep watching this one, but I hope it gives us more of an edge soon.

So am I in or out?

I’m in about 75 percent…

It’s safe to say that I’ll be sticking around for Sarah Michelle Gellar, but I’m also hoping that this series tips over toward the dark side, stripping away some of the tropes we typically see on The CW series and even Teen Wolf. I think it has a lot of potential, but let’s hope the fire doesn’t fizzle out on this one. 

Fingers crossed!
