Raised by Wolves Cancelled by HBO Max After Two Seasons

By Rebecca Theodore-Vachon 

It’s curtains for Raised By Wolves after two seasons.

According to Deadline, HBO Max shared news of the sci-fi series’ cancellation in a statement: “While we are not proceeding with a third season of Raised by Wolves, we are beyond grateful to the stellar cast and crew, 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.”

Raised by Wolves stars Abubakar Salim (Father) and Amanda Collin (Mother) as two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious planet. Unfortunately, they find that controlling the religious beliefs of humans can be a difficult task.


Salim took to Twitter to share the news and rally fans to petition for a third season on a new network or streaming platform with the hashtag #RenewRaisedByWolves. Citing the recent mergers happening at Warner Bros. Discovery (the company owns HBO Max), Salim expressed that his show was one of its casualties.

The actor also said there is hope for more stories to be told: “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.”
