The HBO Max original series “Raised by Wolves,” developed by Aaron Guzikowski of “Prisoners,” will premiere on the streaming platform on February 3, 2022. Ridley Scott, who is presently on the press and awards tour pushing his films “House of Gucci” and “The Last Duel,” executive-produces the android science-fiction thriller. Check out the first trailer from HBO Max below, ahead of the Season 2 launch.
Mother (Amanda Collin) and Father (Abubakar Salim), along with their brood of six human children, join a recently founded atheistic colony in Kepler 22 b’s exotic tropical zone in season two of ‘Raised by Wolves.’ But navigating this odd new society is only the beginning of their difficulties, as Mother’s ‘natural child’ threatens to wipe out the human species.
Felix Jamieson, Niamh Algar, Ethan Hazzard, Amanda Collin, Jordan Loughran, Winta McGrath, Abubakar Salim, and Travis Fimmel are among the cast members of the series. Ridley Scott, who helmed the first two episodes of Season 1, is back as an executive producer this season.
Despite the fact that he only directed the first two episodes (and his production company, Scott Free, maintains an executive producer credit), “Raised by Wolves” has all the hallmarks of a career-defining achievement. Scott’s favorite toys are all present, including androids, an alien planet, and shadowy monsters. There’s even a female protagonist with superhuman abilities. Aside from these characteristics, the first six episodes delve into some of his favorite topics, such as the origin of humanity, the trappings of faith, and the shape of our dystopian future. The new series may have provided Scott with the vast canvas he craves to develop his futuristic ideas of electronic sheep, thanks to a budget capable of providing quite expensive visual effects.
