Raised By Wolves is officially getting a second season!
WarnerMedia and HBO Max has announced they have renewed the Ridley Scott produced science fiction series for a second season and has been revealed as the “top-performing” original programming on the platform, suggesting that it’s the most popular original they have currently on the streaming service.
Below is the announcement from the official press release.
After a striking debut on the streamer as the #1 performing Max original since the platform’s launch, HBO Max has ordered a second season of Raised by Wolves, a serialized sci-fi series from master storyteller and filmmaker Ridley Scott (The Martian, Gladiator, Alien), which has immersed fans into the rich, intricate world of Kepler 22-b. The series, which debuted with three episodes on Sept. 3, has continued to be a strong performer in its second week on the platform, growing its audience by nearly 50% week over week.
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.
This is excellent news for fans like myself who had been curious if the show would get more than a single season. It’s worth noting that the cast are committed to multiple seasons of the show beyond Season 2, so there is the good chance we could get up to Season 4-5 given how the actor’s contracts are written.
Kind of a stroke of luck for HBO Max given that the series was originally going air on TNT.
