Stan today announced the critically acclaimed Stan Original Series Wolf Like Me has been renewed for a second season.
From series creator, executive producer and director Abe Forsythe (Little Monsters), Wolf Like Me stars Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers, Definitely Maybe) and Josh Gad (Central Park, Frozen), who will reprise their roles for the brand new season.
A genre-bending, heartfelt drama, the series is produced by Jodi Matterson (Nine Perfect Strangers), Bruna Papandrea (Big Little Lies) and Steve Hutensky (The Dry) at Made Up Stories.
Everyone brings their own set of baggage to a new relationship and in Wolf Like Me Season 1, Gary (Josh Gad) and Mary (Isla Fisher) are no different. Gary is an emotional wreck and struggles to provide for his daughter since the death of his wife. Mary has a secret she can’t bring herself to share with anyone. The universe brought these two together for a reason, they just need to keep following the signs.
Stan Chief Content Officer Cailah Scobie said: “A powerful, funny and deeply felt drama, Wolf Like Me was one of the most watched premieres in Stan’s history — the series forming an important part of our expanding Stan Originals slate. We can’t wait for audiences to see what’s in store for Isla Fisher’s Mary and Josh Gad’s Gary in the brand new season and are thrilled to continue working alongside leading local creatives Abe Forsythe and Made Up Stories, in addition to our international partners at Endeavor Content and Peacock, on this outstanding series.”
Creator and Executive Producer Abe Forsythe said: “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. 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.”
Executive producers Jodi Matterson, Bruna Papandrea and Steve Hutensky for Made Up Stories said: “If people were surprised by season one 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.”
Endeavor Content EVP, TV Joe Hipps said: “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 two.”
