The series stars Josh Gad and Isla Fisher as Gary and Mary. Gary is a widow and a single father. While Mary is also a widow, she carries a huge secret that she feels she can’t share with anyone. However, the universe has other plans and brings these two together for a reason.


I love horror and I love romantic comedies. So, when I learned about a series that is a combination of both I am 100% in! I absolutely LOVED Wolf Like Me. Isla Fisher and Josh Gad are fantastic together. Watching them from the moment they meet to the season finale is an absolute treat. 

While the series is somewhat predictable, the show is never stale. Every episode is fun, fresh, hilarious, and heartbreaking all at the same time. The series does a great job at tackling tough subjects like grief, depression, suicidal thoughts, loneliness, and so much more in only 6 episodes. 

Honestly, my only gripe is that I want more episodes; 6 is not enough! The acting, writing, and storytelling are so spectacular and episode 6 ends with such a huge cliffhanger that I need it to continue.

As the first original series from the NBC and Stan (an Australia subscription video streaming service) partnership, there are high stakes for the success of Wolf Like Me. The series is written by Abe Forsythe (Little Monsters) and is based on his own experiences as a 40-something single parent. 

“Wolf Like Me is a very meaningful project for me, the stakes are extremely high but grounded by things we can all relate to,” Forsyth said. “I’m so excited to have Isla and Josh on board and I know the audience will be surprised seeing them in a different way as these characters.”

Wolf Like Me comes to Peacock on January 13, 2022! Stay Tuned to That Hashtag Show for more reviews!
