The first series of Raised by Wolves was a bit of a surprise hit, bucking the trend for recent Ridley Scott projects. It was originally released in December 2020 and the first season did so well that season 2 was ordered. Here is the trailer:
The trailer shows new locations, a crisis of faith, and that the safety of the children is still paramount. The simple plot continues:
Androids are tasked with raising human children on a mysterious planet.
Most of the original cast are back. Amanda Collin and Abubakar Salim are back as Mother and Father, the androids who are looking after the human children. Other stars are Winta McGrath, Matias Varela, Felix Jamieson, Jordan Loughran, Ethan Hazzard, and Aasiya Shah.
Ridley Scott is still serving as producer via his production company Scott Free Productions. Scott, Aaron Guzikowski, David X Zucker (Man in the High Castle), Jordan Sheehan (The Terror), Adam Kolbrenner (Prisoners), and Mark Huffman (The Martian) are serving as executive producers.
I did start the original series, but I don’t think I finished it. Maybe time for a revisit ahead of the new series. Are you looking forward to season 2?
Raised by Wolves Season 2 will be streaming on 3rd Feb on HBO Max.
