Created, written and directed by Abe Forsythe, season 1 of the show followed Josh Gad as a single father named Gary who meets Isla Fisher's advice columnist Mary after their cars collide.

After witnessing Mary comfort his son during a panic attack, the pair start a relationship but Mary is hiding a dark secret of the furry kind.

Joining them for season 2, Ramírez will star as Anton, Mary's former professor who is set to reveal even more secrets from her past.

"In the second season of Wolf Like Me, Mary and Gary leap into the next phase of their relationship and face their biggest challenge yet: pregnancy. As much as they try to have a 'normal' pregnancy, it seems impossible with so many questions looming over them," reads the synopsis for season 2.
