In 2020, HBO Max released the sci-fi series Raised by wolves. From producer Ridley Scott and creator Aaron Guzikowski, the series starred Amanda Collin and Abubakar Salim a pair of androids, respectively appointed Mother and father, in charge of raise a group of human children after the cataclysmic end of the Earth. If you expected more after his Second Season created in February, you will be unhappy to learn that it has been cancelled.
Variety announced the news on Friday, confirming HBO Max’s decision not to continue the series. In a statement provided to Variety, the streamer thanked the cast, crew, Ridley, Guzikowski and co-EP David Zucker for their work on the series. “Although we are not proceeding with a third season of Raised by wolveswe are beyond grateful…for their magnificent artistry and unique ability to immerse fans in the world of Kepler-22b.
News of the show’s impending end came when Salim, in a long wire, tweeted that the show could be on the chopping block. It wasn’t too surprising to him that the series was cut, thanks to the recent merger of Warner Bros. Discovery, but he still has hope that another season can be created. Citing the fully planned storyline of the third season, as well as a “goliath of a production team”, Salim thought the show had a fighting chance. Scott’s production company, Scott Free, is said to be buying the series from another platform, and Salim knows the series has a strong international following.. “We are in a unique position,” he tweeted. “That’s where you all come in.”
Salim asked for a “call to action” from the fans, pointing out that the fandoms have successfully granted dead (or believed dead) projects a second shot to the life. While acknowledging that the show may still not be renewed or move to a different service, he still asks for as much help as possible. “A lot of it comes down to rolling the dice in our favor,” he continued. “Let’s give it all. Let’s finally open this door and get the light we see from this show, flooding other homes.
