It’s two and ready for HBO Max’s Ridley Scott sci-fi saga Raised by wolves†
“While We’re Not Going For A Third Season Of” Raised by wolveswe are beyond grateful to the amazing cast and crew,” HBO Max said in a statement, including “our creators Aaron Guzikowski, Ridley Scott, David W. Zucker and the entire team at Scott Free Productions, for their wonderful artistry and unique ability to immerse fans in the world of Kepler-22b.”
Series star Abubakar Salim, who played father, first broke the news early on Friday morning extended Twitter thread that gathered fans to campaign for a season 3 somewhere.
“It’s not surprising, especially after the news about the mergers and what’s happening at Warner [Bros. Discovery, which owns HBO Max], that many shows don’t finish their story. And unfortunately one of those shows Raised by wolves‘ said Salim. “Nothing has been shared publicly yet. And there’s a reason for that. An important. One that I now want to share with you here. There is hope.
“You see, we are in a unique position: we have a fully fleshed out and planned storyline, a Goliath of a production team behind us, an incredible reception from critics and reviewers alike, and most importantly, a community base so strong internationally it cannot be ignored,” continued the British actor. “The reason why the cancellation was not announced [is] because there is still a chance that the story can continue, and be finished in a new home. As We Speak, Scott Free [Productions] and the creatives are pushing for the show to continue in other homes – sharing the show’s reception and appeal with other storytellers…. So I’m asking for action. I see the pure love, passion and questions (too many) that come up DAILY on Twitter for RBW† I now ask you to continue, and with even greater strength, to show that genuine love here, there and everywhere as we search for that new home.”
TVLine has reached out to Scott Free Productions for comment on the series that may be purchased elsewhere.
Raised by wolves Centered on “two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet,” according to the official logline. “While the burgeoning human colony threatens to be torn apart by religious differences, the androids are learning that controlling people’s beliefs is an insidious and difficult task.”
In addition to Salim, the ensemble consisted of Amanda Collin, Winta McGrath, Niamh Algar, Jordan Loughran, Matias Varela, Felix Jamieson, Ethan Hazzard, Aasiya Shah, Ivy Wong and Travis Fimmel.
The Season 2 finale – which will most likely serve as a series final – fell on March 17.
