How does "Wolves" fit into "Teen Wolf"?

Do they exist in the same universe?

Wolf Pack, a new series from Teen Wolf and Criminal Minds creator Jeff Davis on Paramount+, follows four teens: Everett Lang (Armani Jackson), Blake Navarro (Bella Shepard) and twins Luna (Chloe Rose Robertson) and Harlan Briggs (Tyler Lawrence, Grey) - as their lives are forever changed by the California wildfires. While Luna and Harlan knew from birth that they were werewolves, a twist of fate saw Everett and Blake get bitten and begin the transformation. Meanwhile, Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Sarah Michelle Gellar returns to television as investigator Christine Ramsay trying to pinpoint the cause of the wildfires. She set her sights on the teens as a way to find the arsonist. Ultimately, the series has a big story to tackle and has the potential to deliver great storytelling in the future.

Are 'Wolf Pack' and 'Teen Wolf' Set in the Same Universe?

However, since the series was announced with Davis at the helm, everyone has wondered if it was a spinoff of MTV's Teen Wolf, which aired from 2011 to 2017 and starred Tyler Posey, Dylan O. Starring Brian, Taylor Hoechlin, and many other familiar faces. The series takes place in the fictional town of Beacon Hill, California. Scott (Posey) becomes the titular Teen Wolf is drawn into a world of danger and monsters that put the lives of him and those closest to him at risk. He must learn how to be a werewolf and a hero, and is forced to delve into the mysterious rules of the universe. But with his best friend Styles (O'Brien), there's no big threat to face. To further promote the new series Wolf Pack and give die-hard fans some excitement, the streamer also released Teen Wolf: The Movie to take on another journey with (mostly) these beloved characters as an old foe rears its head to once again cause chaos .

Given the very obvious similarities between the two series, it's easy to assume that the Wolf Pack is a continuation of the Teen Wolf universe, especially since there aren't many werewolf stories told in Hollywood. but it is not the truth. They exist in separate universes and have no connection to each other on the show. Davis was very adamant about this fact in an interview, telling SFX Magazine, "There can be two werewolf shows that exist in different spaces." However, for those looking for a different answer, Wolf still has similarities Packaging is perfect for Teen Wolf fans.

What Do 'Wolf Pack' and 'Teen Wolf' Have in Common?

First, both shows were created by Davis. He and his writing team have worked hard to make sure Wolf Pack feels like a separate entity, but it certainly still carries his signature style. The way the world and characters are made feels familiar, which helps to enjoy the journey and believe in the story. Friendships and other platonic relationships are at the forefront, helping to delve into the characters right away. Second, the series focuses on teenagers again. While dealing with supernatural forces, they still face their own challenges and continue their uniquely difficult lives. In fact, the focus on one's own life is certainly at the heart of the Wolfpack show, especially when Wildfire affects at least three of the four teens deeply in the first episode. Finally, certain attributes of being a werewolf appear to be the same in both shows so far, though that could change as the Wolf Pack further explores the lore and "rules" in this universe. These are the most striking similarities, But not the only similarities.

Let 'Wolf Pack' Stand on its Own!

Still, it's equally as exciting and a relief that these shows aren't forced to coexist in the same universe. Teen Wolf has six seasons to tell various stories that introduce new monsters and bring new twists to the main characters about what it means to be a werewolf (or any other monster for that matter). Also, at some point in the series, every character in the universe has to become supernatural in some way, or they have nothing to do when the town is almost constantly invaded by supernatural dangers. In short, the writers built an entire world for these characters. It didn't feel right to add them to a universe built for different actors. By the end of the show, things have gotten quite complicated and convoluted - so much so that the recently premiered film rewrote and ignored much of the established lore about Nogitsune in order to allow the story to unfold.

Wolves give Davis and other writers a chance to do things differently, listen to fan complaints about supernatural rules, and avoid the mistakes of Teen Wolf All the way (and ultimately like any show). Since every vampire story is different, let's see a whole new look at the werewolf...but maybe we don't make the werewolf shine in the moonlight, you know? It's exciting to think about the unique potential of this story, as four distinct and compelling characters are forced together by something they don't quite understand yet to create their own package.

As the story continues, the similarities and differences between the two shows are exciting to see. All in all, while the Wolf Pack is a stand-alone entity with an exciting story and an incredible new cast, it's never really going to be completely disconnected from Teen Wolf. Telling a story about more teenage werewolves is impossible, especially with both shows being overseen by the same creator. There will be purposeful and accidental connections and glaring differences that the author has thought long and hard about. A character with similar traits to characters we've seen before. But, that's the whole magic of television. Whether you love it or hate it, there's no more obvious connection between the two, the Wolf Pack is a show You don't want to miss out.

New episodes of "Wolves" are available every Thursday on Paramount+.
