It’s two and done for HBO Max’s Ridley Scott sci-fi saga Raised by wolves.
“While we are not proceeding with a third season of Raised by wolvesWe are beyond grateful to the outstanding 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 beautiful artistry and unique ability, immerse fans in the world of Kepler-22b.”
Series star Abubakar Salim, who played father, first broke the news in one go early Friday morning extensive twitter thread that got fans to promote 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 a lot of shows haven’t finished their stories yet. And sadly, one of those shows Raised by wolves‘ Salim said. “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’re in a unique position: we’ve got a fully fleshed out and planned storyline, a Goliath production team behind us, incredible acclaim from critics and reviewers alike, and most importantly, such a strong community base internationally it can’t be ignored be,” the British actor continued. “The reason for the cancellation was not disclosed [is] because there is still a chance that the story will continue and end in a new home. As we speak, Scott Free [Productions] and the creatives are pushing for the show to continue in other houses – they share the show’s reception and appeal with other storytellers…. That’s why I ask for action. I see the pure love, passion and questions (too many) coming up on Twitter EVERY DAY RBW. I ask you now to continue, and with even greater power, 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, which may be purchased elsewhere.
Raised by wolves focuses on “two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet,” according to the official logline. “As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences, the androids learn that controlling human beliefs is a treacherous and difficult task.”
