Parenthood is difficult enough, especially for a relatively new couple holding onto a lot of emotional baggage. But how much more difficult would that be if…oh, say, one of them was a werewolf? That’s the question looming over the second season of Peacock’s dark comedy series, Wolf Like Me, which stars Josh Gad and Isla Fisher.
The series was created by Abe Forsythe, who directed the hilarious Sundance comedy-horror Little Monsters. For those unfamiliar with Wolf Like Me, the series centers on Gary, a single father struggling to get over the death of his wife, while continuing to provide support to their grieving daughter. It’s pure fate when Gary meets the mysterious Mary, and they form an unexpected romantic bond, only for it to be complicated by the very large secret she is keeping buried.
Also in the cast are Edgar Ramirez, a new addition for season two, plus Ariel Donoghue, Emma Lung, Anthony Taufa, and Honour Latukefu.
Here’s the synopsis for season two: In the second season of Wolf Like Me, Mary (Isla Fisher) and Gary (Josh Gad) leap into the next phase of their relationship, facing their biggest challenge yet: pregnancy. As much as the two try to have a “normal” pregnancy, it seems impossible, with so many questions looming over them. Will their child be a human or a wolf? Just how long can they keep things secret from the rest of their family? Will what happened in the outback come back to haunt them? And, with Mary’s former professor, Anton (Edgar Ramirez), suddenly in the picture, new secrets from Mary’s past are revealed, can their relationship withstand newly unearthed secrets from Mary’s past?
Wolf Like Me hits Peacock on October 19th with all episodes ready to be binged.
