Ridley Scott and high-concept sci-fi go hand-in-glove, and it seems that many of the religious themes he attempted to explore in his recent Alien sequels have found new life on Raised by Wolves. The HBO Max series is set to launch its second season soon, and a new trailer highlights where the story of two paranoid, atheist androids and their human children will go.
The series was created by Aaron Guzikowski, known for penning films such as Contraband and Prisoners, and for creating the underrated short-lived series The Red Road. Scott is on board as exec-producer. Amanda Collin and Abubakar Salim play the androids Mother and Father, who face a new threat with the arrival of the Ark and the arrival of religious zealots Marcus and Sue, played by Travis Fimmel and Niamh Algar.
Raised by Wolves season 2 hits HBO Max on February 3rd.
In season two of “Raised By Wolves”, Android partners Mother (Collins) and Father (Salim), along with their brood of six human children, join a newly formed atheistic colony in Kepler 22 b’s mysterious tropical zone. But navigating this strange new society is only the start of their troubles as Mother’s “natural child” threatens to drive what little remains of the human race to extinction.
