The fourth series is written by Wolfblood veterans Neil Jones and Sophie Petzal, along with two new additions to the team – Furuquan Akhtar and Matt Sinclair, who are co-writing.

Wolfblood follows werewolves, who have been living among humans for centuries and disguised themselves. As if the difficulties that go with being a teenager weren`t enough, the three lead characters discover that they are Wolfbloods.

The series has earned several important accolades, including two British Academy Children`s Awards, a Royal Television Award, and a British Screenwriters` Awards. Wolfblood has an 8.1/10 IMDb score and is praised for its serious exploration of the difficulties entailed in growing up and fitting in. There is a good chance for a renewal, but no decision has been made by CBBC yet, so please stay tuned for further information.
