The supermoon couldn't have come at a more apt time. Cbbc's superb Wolfblood (here are our love letters to series one, two, and three if you needed catching up) is currently filming its fourth series in Newcastle and Gateshead.
It's all-change for the new series, according to the latest press bumf, which tells us that Wolfblood will be moving out of rural Stoneybridge and to the city.
There's been a shake-up in personnel too, as formerly wild Wolfblood Jana (Leona Vaughan) takes centre stage and forms an urban pack comprising a new gang. New Wolfblood characters include corporate boss Imara (Michelle Gayle), her son Tj (Louis Payne), Matei (Jack Brett Anderson), Emilia (Sydney Wade) and »

What happens when you give Year 6 pupils in a London primary school the chance to run for headteacher? Stacey Dooley sets the candidates thinking about their manifestos, though they go all wibbly after a visit from Wolfblood’s teen idol Bobby Lockwood. It’s soon back to business, however, as 30 candidates are whittled down to three, who will compete for votes throughout the week.

Cbbc will be getting involved in election fever soon with its new show Vote for Me - in which a group of Year 6 pupils battle it out to become headteacher.
The hopeful candidates will enter the race to become headteacher of their South East London primary school for a week and put into place their new policies - if they can keep their election promises, that is.
During the school election, the pupils will announce their policies and launch campaigns with the help of a top advertising agency.
They'll also get advice from the Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, but will have to brush up on their interview technique as the BBC's political editor Nick Robinson will be putting them to the test on their manifestos.
"I can now confirm that a fourth season of #wolfblood has been commissioned!"
After what's felt like a very long wait (the series three renewal news came immediately after the series two finale), Wolfblood is returning to Cbbc. We hope you'll join us in a howl of excitement.
Now, stop howling. People are looking.
