HBO Max brings Raised By Wolves back for a second season
HBO Max is confident in their new science fiction series Raised By Wolves and has ordered a second run of episodes. With episodes directed by Ridley Scott in his first small-screen effort for American television, Raised By Wolves only recently premiered and yet HBO has given them an early green light for round two.
Set in a dystopian future where androids Mother and Father raise human children to be atheists while facing down against a religious army bent on galactic dominance, Raised By Wolves delivers some big-screen visuals on a small screen budget. Needless to say, HBO Max needs to continue banking as many hits as they can to continue to make themselves relevant in the streaming service wars. With Disney+, Paramount+ (aka CBS All Access), Hulu, and Peacock all vying for your hard-earned cash, HBO Max is not pulling any punches.
“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 2.”
“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.” Scott said. “It must have been a notable challenge to selectively plumb the riches in Aaron’s storylines. We were even happier that the 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.”
