HBO Max announced its original drama Raised by Wolves has been renewed for a second season. The Ridley Scott series premiered with three episodes on September 3 and has been the #1 performing Max Original since the platform’s launch and has consistently grown its audience by about 50% week over week.
With fans wondering whether the series would be canceled or renewed, viewers can relax now that the streamer has lit the green light on another season of the sci-fi drama.
“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,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of HBO Max. “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.”
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.
The first seven episodes of season 1 are available to stream on HBO Max now, with new episodes released Thursdays until the October 1 finale. There’s no set date for season 2 yet, but it’s likely to be sometime in late 2021.
