Disney Channel will air the British pre-teen supernatural series Wolfblood in October as part of its month-long "Monstober" schedule of Halloween-themed favorites.
Wolfblood centers on 14-year-old Maddy (Aimee Kelly), who has a secret: She's a "wolfblood." These creatures — neither wolf nor human — possess extraordinary strength, super speed and heightened senses.
Disney Channel will air the entire first season of Wolfblood on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights at 8/7c from Oct. 1 through Oct. 24. In the premiere, Maddy discovers that the new boy at school, Rhydian (Bobby Lockwood), also shares her secret.
On Friday, Oct. 4, Halloween episodes of A.N.T. Farm, Dog with a Blog, Wander Over Yonder and Phineas and Ferb kick off at 8/7c. New spooky episodes of Jessie, Phineas and Ferb and Ultimate Spider-Man premiere starting at 8/7c on Saturday, Oct. 5. The channel will also air Halloween editions of Good Luck Charlie, Liv and Maddie and Shake It Up on Sunday, Oct. 6, starting at 7:30/6:30c.
Other "Monstober" highlights include new Gravity Falls shorts, subtitled Dipper's Guide to the Unexplained, airing nightly at 7:25/6:25c the week of Oct. 14.
Disney Channel also plans to air the special Disney/Pixar's Toy Story of Terror on Friday, Oct. 25 at 8/7c, and will run a marathon of Halloween-themed series episodes starting at 4/3c on Oct. 31.
