When you think of werewolves, what comes to mind? Taylor Lautner et al in Twilight? The American teenagers on Teen Wolf? Lon Chaney in black-and-white film The Wolf Man? How about the teenagers from the north-east of England in CBBC’s Wolfblood? The third season is just around the corner (15th September, put it in your diaries) and that means it’s the perfect time to take a look at what you’re been missing, and what’s in store for Rhydian and the gang.
What makes Wolfblood so great? So many things. Firstly, its location, because while it’s awesome that Cardiff gets so much love these days as opposed to just London, it’s nice to move out to other parts of the UK. The characters are great, and while yes, they are teenagers so romance has to rear its head, romantic relationships are never the focus. Wolfblood is less about “I love you” and more about “Am I lying about myself if I live with humans?”
If all that hasn't caught your attention, it's probably time to mention that Bobby Lockwood (Rhydian) won a BAFTA for his performance last year, and he's currently looking a good bet to win BBC talent show Tumble. Basically, at 5pm next Monday, it’ll be Wolfblood time. With all of season one currently on iPlayer, it’s the perfect chance to get caught up!
