Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this drama series (loosely based on the same-named '80s movie) centers on a teen's transformation into a werewolf, so violence is its main concern. Much of what exists is either implied or obscured by blurry camera effects, but there are some scenes that show victims bloodied or dead, and human hunters use crossbows and guns to stalk the werewolves. Teen relationships yield mostly mild physical contact (kissing, some brief making out) and waist-up nudity (frontal on guys, rear on girls). Also expect some cursing ("hell" and "ass") from both teens and adults. On a positive note, the show centers on a well-adjusted teen who relies on friends to help him cope with difficult circumstances and who engages in a romantic relationship that's based on respect and mutual admiration.

Sexual Content

Teen relationships involve flirting, kissing, hand-holding, and occasionally some making out (kissing, wandering hands, etc.). Guys are often shown shirtless, and girls' naked backsides can be seen from the waist up. There are allusions to sexual activity (like when a mom asks her son if they need to have the "safe sex" talk), but physical interactions are limited.


Bloody corpses and intense battles (although they're brief and mostly obscured) between werewolves and humans. Hunters aim to kill werewolves with crossbows and guns, sometimes hitting their mark and leaving wounds. The characters' transformations are intense, showing them with teeth bared and eyes yellow in menacing glares.


"Hell" and "ass" from both teens and adults.

Social Behavior

Viewers see how a teen copes with a life-altering change that's a danger to those around him. He relies on the support and advice of a good friend, who serves as a confidante and keeps his secret. The story also touches on social themes like fitting in with peers, self-confidence, and healthy relationships, and it has some feel-good messages about people's ability to overcome underdog status. High school castes (the "in" crowd, the jocks, the nerds, etc.) are fairly rigid, and Scott's social transformation to popularity supports this system.


Brand names like Chevy Tahoe are visible within the context of the show.
