The highly anticipated full trailer for the BBC’s upcoming thriller series “WOLF” has been unleashed, accompanied by a captivating gallery of brand-new images. This six-part crime drama, based on the renowned Jack Caffery novels by Mo Hayder, promises to keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Produced by the acclaimed Hartswood Films (known for their work on “Sherlock” and “Inside Man”) in collaboration with APC Studios (“The Light In The Hall”), “WOLF” is set to make its debut on BBC One, BBC One Wales, and BBC iPlayer in the near future.
“WOLF” revolves around the complex life of DI Jack Caffery, a young detective plagued by haunting nightmares. Driven by an unyielding obsession with his belief that his neighbour was responsible for the murder of his younger brother in the 1990s, Jack embarks on a mission to rectify the injustices inflicted upon others. But this pursuit comes at a price. Meanwhile, in an isolated residence in Monmouthshire, the affluent Anchor-Ferrers family unwittingly becomes the target of a sadistic psychopath’s chilling games, leading to their entrapment and relentless terror. As these two narratives intersect, viewers can expect a riveting, nerve-wracking, and profoundly unsettling race against time.
The script for “WOLF” has been written and adapted by Megan Gallagher, known for her work on “Borderliner” and “Suspicion.” Taking the lead as DI Jack Caffery is the talented Ukweli Roach, recognised for his roles in “The Midwich Cuckoos,” “Blindspot,” and “Humans.” Roach is joined by Sacha Dhawan, best known for his appearances in “Doctor Who” and “Marvel’s Iron Fist,” portraying the character of Honey. Additionally, Iwan Rheon, celebrated for his performances in “Game of Thrones” and “Riviera,” takes on the role of Molina, forming an unlikely duo thrust together by circumstance. The cast also features Sian Reese-Williams (“Hidden,” “Line of Duty”) as DI Lincoln, a determined woman driven to prove herself, as well as Juliet Stevenson (“Out Of Her Mind,” “Bend It Like Beckham”) and Owen Teale (“Line of Duty,” “Game of Thrones”) as Matilda and Oliver Anchor-Ferrers, respectively. Annes Elwy (“The Light In The Hall”) brings the character of Lucia, their daughter, to life.
Produced by Hartswood Films and APC Studios in collaboration with Creative Wales, “WOLF” boasts an esteemed team of executive producers, including Elaine Cameron from Hartswood Films, Laurent Boissel representing APC Studios, creator Megan Gallagher, and director Kristoffer Nyholm. Rebecca Ferguson lends her expertise as an executive producer for the BBC. The first three episodes have been helmed by Kristoffer Nyholm, acclaimed for his work on “The Killing,” while the final three episodes were directed by Lee Haven Jones (“The Long Call”).
