Media outlets are reporting that HBO Max have renewed Ridley Scott’s sci-fi series Raised By Wolves for a second season.
Raised By Wolves focuses on two androids, Father and Mother, tasked with raising human children on a mysterious planet. As the colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences, the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a difficult task.
HBO Max has said that the series has grown its audience overall since the premiere, nearly by 50% week-over-week from its initial three-episode launch to its second week episode release.
Sarah Aubrey, head of HBO Max, released a statement saying:
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 released a statement saying:
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 stars Travis Fimmel, Amanda Collin, Abubakar Salim, Winta McGrath, Niamh Algar, Felix Jamieson, Ethan Hazzard, Jordan Loughran, Aasiya Shah, Ivy Wong and Matias Varela.
