Aussie darling Isla Fisher and your favourite snowman Josh Gad are combining forces for a fresh new Stan Original Series – Wolf Like Me.

The six-part series, which has been produced in Australia, teases a complex and twist-filled story and if you’re as curious about it all as we are, we’ve pulled together a list of all the details you need to know.

Here we go.

What is Wolf Like Me about?

Written by Abe Forsythe (Little Monsters), the series is based on Forsythe’s experience as a 40-something-year-old single parent.

Gad and Fisher play a couple of emotionally complicated characters with a tonne of baggage to them (don’t we all) – Gary and Mary. As Stan writes:

Everyone brings their own set of baggage to a new relationship and Gary (Josh Gad) and Mary (Isla Fisher) are no different. When Mary’s universe suddenly collides with Gary and his 11-year-old daughter, Emma (Ariel Donoghue), all the signs tell her they’re meant to be in each other’s lives. But, as their connection deepens, Mary and Gary grow more and more terrified their respective baggage will tear them apart.

Who is involved in the project?

The cast and crew behind this one is a pretty impressive combination.

Emmy-winning production company Made Up Stories bring producers Jodi Matterson (Nine Perfect Strangers), Bruna Papandrea (Big Little Lies) and Steve Hutensky (The Dry) to the project alongside three-time AACTA Award nominee Abe Forsythe.

As mentioned above, Josh Gad (Frozen, Beauty and the Beast) and AACTA Award-winning Isla Fisher (Arrested Development, Wedding Crashers) star in this series.

Other cast members include Ariel Donoghue (Crossing Paths), Emma Lung (Entourage) and Anthony Taufa (Mr Inbetween), with guest stars including Jake Ryan (Wolf Creek), Robyn Nevin (Stan Original Film Relic) and Nash Edgerton (The Invisible Man).

Can I see a trailer?

Stan released a teaser trailer for the series on December 10, giving audiences a sneak peek into the upcoming show.

Stan has also dropped this extended trailer which gives us a bit more of an idea of what to expect from Wolf Like Me. Something suspicious is definitely going on with Isla Fisher’s character Mary but we’ll let you form your own theories.

When will Wolf Like Me release in Australia?

Lucky for you, there’s not too long to wait before Wolf Like Me hits screens. The series is slated to drop all its episodes on January 13, 2022, on Stan.
