In partnership with DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, award-winning developer and publisher of digital entertainment Telltale Games today announced a second season of The Wolf Among Us: A Telltale Games Series, the critically-acclaimed and award-winning episodic adventure game series based on Bill Willingham’s ‘Fables’ comic book series, is set to debut in 2018.
With overwhelming popular demand from fans since the series concluded in 2014, Telltale surprised their fans today in an announcement video from the cast and crew confirming that the project is coming in the year ahead. Though this new season has not yet been officially titled, it will debut in the second half of 2018 across all major gaming consoles and mobile gaming devices. This new season will begin a fresh story arc for its returning cast of characters, featuring the return of Adam Harrington as Bigby Wolf and Erin Yvette as Snow White.
The Wolf Among Us: A Telltale Games Series was met with critical-acclaim and heralded as a 2014 Game of the Year Contender by Gamespot.com. The series also received awards for ‘Best Story’ and ‘Best Performances’ by IGN.com, and was awarded ‘Best Narrative’ at the SXSW Gaming Awards.
The final episode of The Wolf Among Us: A Telltale Games Series received a 9.3 out of 10 score from IGN.com, who awarded it ‘Game of the Month’ saying, “Simply put, The Wolf Among Us’ finale provides some of the finest storytelling I’ve played in a long time… Telltale’s finale is a fantastic adventure, and some of the best work the studio has ever done.” Nerdist.com called the series, upon its conclusion, “a tour de force of sex, lies, murder, deceit, and, ultimately, hope.”
A consistent New York Times bestseller, Fables was created by Bill Willingham and became one of DC Entertainment’s longest-running series, published under its Vertigo imprint from 2002 to 2015. With over a dozen Eisner Awards — including Best Writer, Best New Series, and numerous wins for Best Serialized Story — the Fables universe has become one of the richest mythologies in the world of comics, imagining that characters from the world’s most beloved storybooks are real and living among us with all of their powers intact.
