Actor Rodrigo Santoro (Westworld) is joining actress Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) in the upcoming fantasy drama TV series Wolf Pack, a spinoff of the Teen Wolf series that ran on MTV for six seasons.

“A new adventure is coming,” Santoro posted on Instagram. The official Instagram account for the series added, “This is shaping up to be one hell of a cast” alongside a photo of Santoro on the set.

Five years after Teen Wolf ended its sixth and final season, Wolf Pack will begin a new narrative for lovers of all things lupine with a story that follows two teenagers – Everett (Armani Jackson) and Blake (Bella Shepard) – whose lives are changed when a California wildfire awakens a supernatural creature. Wolf Pack is based on the book series by Edo Van Belkom.

According to Variety, Santoro, who is of Brazilian descent, will play Garrett Briggs, a Los Angeles park ranger and the adoptive father of Everett and Blake. Garrett is dedicated to protecting the environment and is described in a press release as “a man of strong values” and “someone with dark secrets and deep suspicions, especially towards anyone questioning the relationship with his children.”

Best known on American TV for his role as Hector Escaton in Westworld, Santoro was last seen in the Spanish TV series Boundless where he portrayed Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan. Last year, he starred in the Brazilian drama 7 Prisoners where he played a man who forces a group of teenage boys into slave labor at a junkyard.

Currently, in production in Atlanta, Wolf Pack is scheduled to premiere before the end of the year on Paramount+.
