Raised by Wolves initially released the first three episodes on September 3rd. The show grew its audience by nearly 50 percent from the previous week and continues to be a ratings smash. Sarah Aubrey, head of HBO Max, had nothing but glowing remarks for the series:
When I think of Raised by Wolves, I think of artistry; artistry in crafting a compelling storyline, artistry in the out-of-this world production design, special effects and cinematography, artistry in our actor’s portrayals of these memorable characters, and artistry attached to the legendary work of Ridley Scott, Aaron Guzikowski and our phenomenal crew. This chart-topping series beautifully weaves together Ridley’s hallmarks of sci-fi and horror while offering fans one of the most original storylines they’ve seen in some time. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Season Two.
Now, the show focuses on two androids tasked with raising human children on an elusive planet. Tensions fester between human factions due to differing religious beliefs. The androids learn just how difficult it is to control human opinions.
Raised by Wolves has been lauded as “one of the most interesting sci-fi shows in years” by IGN. Other reputable publications such as Forbes and The Wall Street Journal have also praised actress Amanda Collin for her nuanced work on the show.
