HBO Max has swung the axe on Raised By Wolves, with the streaming cancelling the Ridley Scott-produced sci-fi drama after two seasons.
“While we are not proceeding with a third season of Raised by Wolves, we are beyond grateful to the stellar cast and crew, 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 to immerse fans into the world of Kepler-22b,” reads the official statement from HBO Max regarding the show’s cancellation.
Preceding the official news of the cancellation, actor Abubakar Salim took to Twitter in Friday to urge fans to lobby for a third season of the show, revealing that the producers are actively searching for a new home in order to continue the story:
“It’s not surprising, especially after the news of the mergers and what is happening at Warner Bros. Discovery, that a lot of shows are not having their stories finished. And unfortunately, one of those shows is Raised by Wolves. Nothing has been publicly shared yet. And there is a reason for that. An important one. One which I’m here to share with you now. There is hope. You see, we’re in a unique position: we have a fully fleshed out and planned storyline, a Goliath of a production team behind us, incredible reception from critics and reviewers alike, and most crucially, a community base that is so strong internationally, it can not be ignored.
“The reason the cancellation hasn’t been announced [is] because there’s still a chance the story can continue, and be finished at a new home. As we speak, Scott Free [Productions] and the creatives are pushing for the show to be continued in other homes — sharing the reception and pull of the show to other storytellers…. So I’m asking for action. I see the pure love, passion and questions (too too many) that arise DAILY on Twitter for RBW. I’m now asking that you continue to, and with even more vigor, show that genuine love here, there, and everywhere as we search for that new home.”
Raised By Wolves revolves around two androids tasking with raising human children on the planet Kepler-22b. Starring in the series alongside Salim are (were?) Amanda Collin, Winta McGrath, Niamh Algar, Jordan Loughran, Matias Varela, Felix Jamieson, Ethan Hazzard, Aasiya Shah, Ivy Wong and Travis Fimmel.
