It's been nearly 30 years since Sarah Michelle Gellar popped up on All My Children as Erica Kane's daughter Kendall, but the actress' career is still going strong. Paramount+ has announced that Gellar is trading in vampires for ... werewolves?
The Emmy-winning Gellar is set to star in and executive produce its upcoming original series Wolf Pack, from MTV Entertainment Studios. The casting news was revealed when Gellar made a surprise appearance during Paramount+'s Teen Wolf panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
Based on the book series by Edo Van Belkom, Wolf Pack follows a teenage boy and girl whose lives are forever changed when a California wildfire awakens a terrifying supernatural creature. Gellar stars as arson investigator Kristin Ramsey, a highly regarded expert in her field and no stranger to personal loss, brought in by authorities to catch the teenage arsonist who started a massive wildfire, which may have also led to the reawakening of a supernatural predator terrorizing Los Angeles.
Gellar won an Emmy for work as AMC's Kendall Hart, a role she played from February 1993 to July 1995. After AMC, Gellar found superstardom as the title character in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She also appeared on The Crazy Ones opposite Robin Williams, and as twins on Ringer. She has numerous film credits in The Grudge, Scooby Doo, I Know What You Did Last Summer, Scream 2, and Cruel Intentions.
Other Wolf Pack cast members include Armani Jackson, Bella Shepard, Chloe Rose Robertson, and Tyler Lawrence Gray.
Wolf Pack will premiere later this year on the Paramount+ streaming service.
