HBO Max has announced that they will be bringing back Ridley Scott’s sci-fi drama Raised By Wolves for a second season after revealing that the show is the top-performing original show on the streaming service.
I don’t know if you’ve been watching the first season, but you should! This is a stunning series that tells an intriguing story. I love how the story has been playing out and it’s exciting to know that the story will continue after the first season comes to an end.
Raised by Wolves centers on two androids “tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences, the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task.”
Sarah Aubrey, head of HBO Max said in a statement:
“When I think of Raised by Wolves, I think of artistry; artistry in crafting a compelling storyline, artistry in the out-of-this-world production design, special effects and cinematography, artistry in our actor’s portrayals of these memorable characters, and artistry attached to the legendary work of Ridley Scott, Aaron Guzikowski and our phenomenal crew. This chart-topping series beautifully weaves together Ridley’s hallmarks of sci-fi and horror while offering fans one of the most original storylines they’ve seen in some time. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for season two.”
Ridley Scott added:
“Being a dyed-in-the-wool advertising man, I was knocked out by the extraordinary campaign done by HBO Max marketing, which conveyed the ambitious storyline in such a provocative and tactile manner, and deftly positioned our first season of Raised by Wolves as a “must watch” show. It must have been a notable challenge to selectively plumb the riches in Aaron’s storylines. We were even happier that audiences have responded so enthusiastically. We are already deep into the ‘layers’ of season 2, as Aaron has begun to shape what we think will be another brilliant season to inspire the imagination.”
The series was created by Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners) and Scott serves as an executive producer on the series and he actually directed the first two episodes. It stars Amanda Collin as Mother and Abubakar Salim as Father with Winta McGrath, Niamh Algar, Jordan Loughran, Matias Varela, Felix Jamieson, Ethan Hazzard, Aasiya Shah, Ivy Wong and Travis Fimmel.
