The official trailer for pack of wolves — the upcoming Paramount+ series starring buffy the vampire slayer Sarah Michelle Gellar, starring, launched on Thursday and gives a glimpse of what’s to come in the supernatural teen drama. Hint: Lots of growling, howling at the moon, suspicious bite marks, yellow eyes, a loaded silver bullet in a gun, and blood-smeared tree bark.
The trailer opens with some teenagers stuck in traffic on their school bus. Emergency service vehicles drive by and a massive forest fire is seen, with deer fleeing the forest in terror, and one, um, even appears to attack a person trapped in the traffic jam. Fire breaks out and at least one of the teens is shown with a massive bite to the back. “What is happening to us?” says one of the teenagers. A mysterious call comes to one of the girls in another scene, with a voice saying, “He has to find you…kill you…before the next full moon.”
We also get a clearer idea of what Gellar’s character is. “We’re part of a joint task force investigating the wildfires,” she says in the trailer. “We are looking for any of the children that were on that school bus.” As for the kids, well, they seem to have bigger problems. “This is how it starts,” says one of them. “Get fangs, get claws, and then we start killing people?”
