This week, Stan released a second season of its surprise original Wolf Like Me.
For those that missed season one, the series saw Mary (Isla Fisher) and Gary (Josh Gad) have a collision course path to lovers with the twist that Mary is actually a werewolf after she finally wolfed-out as she protected Gary and his daughter Emma (Ariel Donoughue) in a remote part of the Australian outback.
With Mary’s secret out, it felt like a complete story. When we pick up the story in season two, six months have passed and Mary and Gary are leaping into the next phase of their relationship to face their biggest challenge yet: pregnancy. As much as they try to have a “normal” pregnancy, it seems impossible with so many questions looming over them – is Mary expecting a wolf or human child, and how do you plan for such a birth?
Meanwhile, Mary’s former professor Anton (Edgar Ramirez) suddenly reappears in her life as a further complication, and Emma embarks on the journey that is starting high school.
Entering into a new phase, creator and writer Abe Forsythe expands on the show’s spectacular first season, with a season full of comedy and human drama that gives both Fisher and Gad compelling performances. Donoughue also shines.
Faultless and a perfect Halloween binge, Wolf Like Me season 2 isn’t to be missed.
Season 2 of Wolf Like Me is now streaming on Stan.
