Fans of romantic comedies should get excited because a new mini-series from Stan, PeacockTV, and NBCUniversal is on the way. “Wolf Like Me,” starring Josh Gad and Isla Fisher, promises a fresh take on the romantic comedy genre. The new series has a captivating cast and premise, despite the fact that nothing is known about it. Abe Forsythe, a three-time Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) award nominee, is also writing and directing the series (via MediaWeek). The series is also due to premiere soon, which is the cherry on top.
“Wolf Like Me” will, however, most likely stay veiled in mystery until then. Nonetheless, the series is worth seeing, especially for fans of romantic drama. With that in mind, here’s all we know about “Wolf Like Me’s” release date, cast, and plot so far.
When will Wolf Like Me be available to buy?
“Wolf Like Me” is probably certainly a long time in the making. What evidence do we have that this is the case? Even though the show was only recently revealed, it is still set to premiere very soon. Peacock has announced that all six half-hour episodes of “Wolf Like Me” will be released on January 13, 2022, according to People Magazine. With such a near-release date, it’s impossible that NBCUniversal, Stan, and PeacockTV haven’t been working behind the scenes to prepare for the big premiere.
Viewers will be able to watch “Wolf Like Me” early after the new year, regardless of when the series was produced. PeackockTV will broadcast it in the United States and internationally. However, viewers in Australia would have to use the Stan streaming service to access it.
Who’s in Wolf Like Me’s cast?
Because “Wolf Like Me” is a romantic comedy, you may expect the spotlight to be on one pair. In other words, this new miniseries has two stars, one of whom you may recognize. The first is Australian actress Isla Fisher, who is recognized for her roles in “Arrested Development,” “Now You See Me,” and the 2013 “Great Gadsby” picture (via IMDb). Fisher portrays Mary in the movie “Wolf Like Me.”
Josh Gad plays Gary, Mary’s rhyming love interest. Gad is most known for playing Olaf the Snowman in Dreamworks’ “Frozen” flicks. He has, however, starred in live-action films, including Adam Sandler’s “Pixels” and the live-action rendition of “Beauty and the Beast,” in which he played LeFou (Gaston’s sidekick).
Gary is, without a question, the key character whom we know the most at this point in the story. After all, it appears that Forsythe’s period as a middle-aged single father influenced him the most.
What does Wolf Like Me’s plot entail?
“Wolf Like Me” is shaping out to be a unique romantic comedy. Despite the fact that practically every rom-com explores the baggage that one or both partners in a relationship carry, Gary and Mary have their own challenges that distinguish them. Gary, for example, is a single father and a widower who must care for his daughter while also juggling his relationship with Mary.
Meanwhile, Mary is hiding something important from everyone. For the time being, the audience is included in this. It’s unclear how Mary’s major secret will affect her relationship with Gary, or what the nature of her secret might be, but it’s expected to shake up their romance, and it’s most likely the basis behind the show’s enigmatic moniker. Regardless of their baggage, the synopsis for the episode claims that “the cosmos brought these two together for a reason.”
Whether or not they work out as a couple, “Wolf Like Me” appears to teach us something. However, when “Wolf Like Me” comes out in January, we’ll find out exactly what that lesson is.
