To our extreme disappointment, HBO Max have decided to cancel their big budget, Ridley Scott sci-fi series Raised by Wolves after only 2 incredible seasons. The show garnered major appeal within the sci-fi fandom and fans of Ridley Scott's other sci-fi endeavors, namely the iconic Alien films, which Riased by Wolves borrowed heavily from. The show concluded its second season with plenty cliffhangers and unanswered questions. Much like the unsatisfying, anticlimactic ending to Ridley Scott's Alien prequel saga which was curved by Disney after their acquisition of 20th Century Fox, fans once again are left hanging high and dry with their most burning questions left unanswered for Raised by Wolves.

In a statement, HBO Max published the following:

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.

Despite the upsetting news, series star Abubakar Salim did take to Twitter to explain there is potential for another network to pick up the series and continue its story in a third season:

It’s not surprising, especially after the news of the mergers and what is happening at Warner [Bros. Discovery, which owns HBO Max], 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.”

We really hope another network picks up Raised by Wolves and continues this immersive, expansive, overwhelmingly fascinating sci-fi series. As new developments arise we'll be sure to keep you updated!

Are you disappointed by this news? Let us know in the comments.
