Gellar is set to star in the new Paramount+ spinoff series "Wolf Pack" by writer Jeff Davis, and as the name implies, its narrative is centered around werewolves.

The majority of the Comic-Con panel, held in San Diego, was spent discussing "Teen Wolf The Movie" with actor Tyler Posey, his co-star Tyler Hoechlin, and creator Davis.

As you may know, the "Teen Wolf" series starred Posey, who played Scott McCall, a young werewolf who took the responsibility of protecting his hometown, Beacon Hills, from other, more dangerous werewolves and monsters.

However, by the time "Teen Wolf The Movie" gets to Paramount+, Scott would be over fifty and prepared to pass the torch to a new generation.

As for Gellar's involvement in the new werewolves production, Davis revealed her feature as he is the writer and executive producer of the series.

In his words, "Everyone knows that "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" was a huge influence on "Teen Wolf," so I always thought it would be amazing if we could bring Sarah Michelle Gellar back to a horror show."

Naturally, the talented actress joined the group on stage and joked that she would change her name to "Tyler Michelle" to blend in with the other panelists.

She also complimented Davis' work, saying, "Everything these guys have been saying about family and the atmosphere of Jeff's show is really true. I hope you guys come join us."

Speaking of "Wolf Pack," it is not set in Beacon Hills but "follows four young teenagers who find themselves united by the bite and blood of a werewolf." 

It is also based on the book series by Edo van Belkom and will star Armani Jackson as Everett, Bella Shepard as Blake, Tyler Lawrence Gray as Harlan, and Chloe Rose Robertson as Luna.

Gellar is an executive producer of the show, and her acting role is "a highly regarded" arson investigator Kristin Ramsey who is a pro in her field and "no stranger to personal loss."

In the production, Kristin is brought in by authorities to capture a teenage arsonist who started a massive wildfire that could have possibly led to the "reawakening of a supernatural predator terrorizing Los Angeles."

Several months before the 45-year-old producer landed her role in "Wolf Pack," she got signed on to star in Amazon Studios' "Hot Pink" and, at the same time, celebrated getting a COVID-19 vaccine.

The Blast shared that she updated her fans on social media about the vaccination. She also shared a picture of herself getting an injection at an inoculation site managed by the Los Angeles Fire Department.

At the time, she took her second dose of the coronavirus shot and expressed her pride in being immunized against the virus.

Gellar further detailed the reasons behind her decision, pointing out that the previous year had been scary as she had "severe asthma" and had been hospitalized because of it.

She also got the shot not just for herself but for everyone negatively affected by COVID, including her friends and family, whom she missed then.

Despite the multiple shots, Gellar got against COVID, she was unfortunately diagnosed with the virus for the first time last month and admitted to having a challenging experience.

The Blast reported that she shared the news with her tons of fans, revealing that she was "vaccinated and boosted" and was "on the road to recovery."

The "Swans Crossing" actress mentioned her struggles with asthma and lung issues affected by the diagnosis as it was tough for her, even with "therapeutics" and protocols.

She hoped to return stronger than ever and optimistically "with super antibodies" while also vowing to wear a mask in her shower if it meant never getting the virus again.

Gellar's first run with COVID was certainly not a bed of roses, but she recovered pretty well and had some weird post-COVID symptoms that were admittedly new to her.
