*Warning - contains full spoilers for all six episodes of Wolf*


BBC crime drama Wolf has come to a dramatic end, and now naturally thoughts are turning towards a second season.

The series revolved around DI Jack Caffery, who becomes determined to prove that his neighbour murdered his 10-year-old brother in the ‘90s, in addition to a parallel narrative concerning the wealthy Anchor-Ferrers family, who find themselves the victims of a psychopath’s cruel games.

A potential second season could see Jack Caffery jump on another case as well as delving into mysteries surrounding his own personal backstory which are still to be fully unveiled.

If you're wondering whether a second season is on the cards, read on for everything you need to know about Wolf season 2.

It hasn't been confirmed just yet whether Wolf will be back for a second season, but based on the end of the first, there is definitely scope for the series to continue.

The first season ended on a cliffhanger, as it became clear that Jack's brother survived longer than at first thought - and may even still be alive.

There are also plenty of other Jack Caffery stories from Mo Hayder that could be adapted, although these would come from earlier books in the series.

When would Wolf season 2 be released?

It's hard to say exactly when a second season of Wolf would be released, given that it has yet to be officially confirmed. We'd imagine that the absolute earliest it could arrive would be in a year from now, so around August 2023, although a later date in late 2023 or early 2024 might be more likely.

Wolf cast - who would be back for season 2?

If Wolf were to come back for a second season then we would certainly expect Ukweli Roach to be back as Jack Caffery. Beyond that, it's hard to tell exactly who would be in the cast.

Cast members we can likely rule out returns for include Sacha Dhawan, Iwan Rheon, Owen Teale and Annes Elwy, whose characters died in season 1.

It's also unlikely that Juliet Stevenson would come back, with the Anchor-Ferrers plot seemingly tied up. Instead, season 2 would likely focus on a brand-new case, meaning those who could come back include the police detectives played by Sian Reese-Williams, Ciarán Joyce and Kai Owen.

Meanwhile, based on the end of season 1, it seems further instalments would likely continue to focus on the mystery surrounding Jack's brother's disappearance - potentially bringing in Anthony Webster's Ivan Penderecki and Tim Treloar's Walking Man.

Here's a full list of the cast who could potentially return for Wolf season 2:

  • Ukweli Roach as DI Jack Caffery
  • Sian Reese-Williams as DI Lincoln
  • Ciarán Joyce as DI Prody
  • Kai Owen as DI Matthews
  • Anthony Webster as Ivan Penderecki
  • Tim Treloar as Walking Man
