TVLine Items: Wolf Like Me Renewed, Daytime Emmys Date and More

Wolf Like Me Renewed

Peacock is feeling hungry like the wolf, picking up the genre-bending romantic dramedy Wolf Like Me for Season 2.

The series stars Isla Fisher as Mary, who has a secret she can’t bring herself to share with anyone, and Josh Gad as Gary, an emotional wreck who struggles to provide for his daughter since the death of his wife. Season 1 premiered this past January.

“I’m thrilled to be able to continue Mary and Gary’s story into the next phase of their relationship, especially considering the stakes couldn’t be higher,” creator Abe Forsythe said in a statement. “Knowing we have an audience invested in their story is a dream come true for us. Our crew is already having a lot of fun building on what we created with season one, I can’t wait for everyone to experience it alongside our characters.”
