Being one of Telltale’s biggest and most critically-acclaimed projects as well as a game that many thought would never receive any sort of sequel, The Wolf Among Us is finally getting the season 2 treatment. Just days after Job Stauffer, the head of communications at Telltale Games teased fans on Twitter saying that a season 2 was very unlikely going to happen, Telltale curve-balled us once again and confirmed that a season 2 of The Wolf Among Us was in fact officially in the works on count of their summer update 2017.
Brand new episodes of the much-loved Telltale story are said to be released in late 2018 and that the storyline in the game will be an all-new Fabletown adventure, primarily focusing on a standalone narrative that will not be a continuation from the mind-blowing episode 5 finale in season 1. Even though the noir-style cliffhanger to season 1 of The Wolf Among Us left fans in a flurry of speechlessness and awe, a brand new story featuring Bigby, Snow White, and the rest of the Fabletown community is still something to keep us on our toes until next year. Telltale announced the sequel with a brand new image of the dark purple The Wolf Among Us font with a number 2 design in the background.
The game which is based upon Bill Willingham’s ground-breaking Vertigo comic book series, Fables, managed the grasp the murky world of modern day fables as presented in the comics and placed a large vocal point on the main character, Bigby Wolf, and the struggles he faces as being the sheriff of Fabletown. The voice cast, most notably Adam Harrington as Bigby and Erin Yvette as Snow White, are set to return for The Wolf Among Us season 2 when production on the game begins.
As of yet, we are still unsure of which Fables characters are making a return or if any new characters are making a debut in the upcoming 2018 game besides Bigby and Snow White, but all we do know is that Telltale are working on a fresh new story arc for our favourite Big Bad Wolf that will once again be leaving us shocked and tongue-tied, kicking and screaming for a season 3.
The Wolf Among Us season 2 is set to arrive on PlayStation 4, X-Box One, and PC in the later half of 2018.
