* In ''Series/{{Being Human|UK}}'', werewolves have to change during the full moon. Changing is a slow, agonizing process. They turn into giant, bipedal wolf humanoids that can tear apart even vampires. In the days before and after their change, they have heightened hearing and smell. The more times they change, the stronger and tougher they get, to the point that some can rival vampires even in human form. They generally do not have the ability to change at will, [[spoiler:until the fourth season, in which it proves fatal because the human gets stuck halfway through the transformation]].
* ''Series/BeingHumanUS'' makes werewolves quadrupedal and add a slight level of agitation and unease around the full moon. The remake also features "pure-bred" werewolves, individuals born as werewolves rather than being turned into one. They have the experiences other werewolves feel around the full moon 24/7 and must take wolfsbane to take the edge off. Also noted, is that if a werewolf kills his/her sire before the next full moon, he/she will be cured of the curse. The 3rd season features the main werewolf Josh having been cured of his curse, but ends with him turned, again, and season 3 ends on a cliffhanger that shows something is not right:
** [[spoiler:For one of a litany of possible reasons, Josh does not turn back into a human after this first full moon, and instead is trapped as a wolf until the next full moon, during which he turns back into a human. This goes on for several months until Sally returns to the group and uses her new witch magic to fix the curse, but the spell also goes wrong. Although Josh is a human once more, the wolf is more active in his day-to-day life, causing him to nearly transform under duress which later leads to him discovering he can transform without the full moon. Sally ultimately fixes everything by using her ghostly powers to get Josh to enter a truce with his inner wolf, who rightly fears and hates him for having spent several years trying to suppress or otherwise eliminate him from his life.]]

* ''Series/BeingHumanUS'' makes werewolves quadrupedal and add a slight level of agitation and unease around the full moon. The remake Werewolves generally have no memory of their actions as a wolf, only finding out some of the results afterward when their human body cannot handle something their werewolf did (such as [[spoiler:eating his own poop]] for Josh); Nora [[spoiler:remembers everything her wolf does, possibly as a result of the suppressed memories of the abuse she suffered from her family and ex-boyfriend]]. Werewolves also features do not generally form packs, as they are only successful if the "pack" is an actual family of blood relations. The American version also introduces "pure-bred" werewolves, individuals who are born as werewolves rather than being turned into one. They have werewolves, and experience the experiences other agitation infected that werewolves feel around the full moon 24/7 and must take all the time, ingesting wolfsbane to take the edge off. Also noted, Josh spends the first two seasons seeking a cure for his lycanthropy, assuming it is a medical issue, until Nora reveals she has learned that if it is a curse that can only be lifted by killing the werewolf kills his/her sire before that cursed him in the next full moon, he/she will be cured of the curse. The 3rd first place. Josh succeeds in doing so (and finding out that [[spoiler:it only works on one generation and Nora is still a werewolf]]) and spends season features the main werewolf Josh having been cured of his curse, but ends with him turned, 3 as a human, until he is cursed, once again, and season 3 ends on a cliffhanger that shows this time his sire is killed by someone else before he can lift the curse, again. However, something is not right:
goes wrong:
** [[spoiler:For one of a litany of possible reasons, some initially unexplained reason, implied as being turned by the pure-bred Liam or being attacked by his inner wolf when helping Sally fight the witch Donna in her own pocket dimension, Josh does not turn back into a human remains transformed after this his first full moon, moon after being cursed, again. For the next several months, Aidan and instead is trapped as a wolf Nora do their best to keep him distracted and locked up until the next full moon, during which moon when he turns back into a human. This goes on for several months until human and he trades places with Nora. Sally returns to the group finally escapes her imprisonment by Donna and uses her learns that she has new witch magic powers (it's complicated) which she uses to fix the curse, but curse on Josh, turning him "normal", again. However, the spell also goes wrong. Although isn't properly placed, and Josh is a human once more, the wolf is more active in his day-to-day life, causing him to feels agitated constantly, until he nearly transform under duress which later leads to him discovering transforms in broad daylight and discovers that he can transform without ''without'' the full moon. moon, and without ill effect. This leads to him being kidnapped by a pack of werewolves who he and Nora tried to befriend to turn a bunch of humans into werewolves like him to more easily eliminate the vampires who after season 3's flu (it's complicated) have come back in force, a thought that horrifies him. After Sally ultimately fixes everything by using her ghostly powers experiences being a werewolf in an alternate timeline (again, complicated), she manages to get "fix" the curse once more, helping Josh to enter a truce with confront his inner wolf, wolf who rightly fears and hates him is rightfully afraid of Josh for having spent the past several years trying to suppress or otherwise outright eliminate him from him. Josh enters a "truce" with his life.wolf, allowing his humanity to be in charge at all times except the full moon when the wolf gets his chance at freedom as it was originally.]]

** The episode "Lycanthropia" features a Blutbaden genetic disease, which causes them to become a savage killer (and even more powerful) during the three nights of the full moon. [[spoiler: It's also apparently contagious to normal humans, although it causes Wu to become a generic BeastMan rather than recognisably lupine]].

* ''Series/TheVampireDiaries'' introduces werewolves in the second season, though it had been hinting at their existence for a while. It's part-heredity, part-curse: those of particular bloodlines - including the Lockwood family - are potential werewolves, who suffer from anger control issues especially around the full moon. The curse kicks in if they kill a human (even in self-defence); they will immediately become a full werewolf, painfully transforming into a monstrous wolf during the full moon. The weakness to silver is a myth, but wolfsbane can burn and weaken them. According to legend, they were once able to shift at will, but were cursed into becoming slaves of the moon. Since the bite of a werewolf will kill a vampire, the vampires hunted them almost to extinction.

** In the direct-to-video Halloween film, ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheGoblinKing'', Scooby Doo and Shaggy go to the Magic World and encounter a bartender who was a werewolf.

Velma becomes a werewolf very briefly (along with Fred who becomes a vampire, and Daphne who turns into a witch) as a result of the Goblin King's magic sceptor.
