Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated new series Raised By Wolves finally drops tomorrow.
In what marks the acclaimed director’s US TV directorial debut, the “trippy” sci-fi series follows the story of two androids named Father (Abubakar Salim) and Mother (Amanda Collin), who are tasked with raising human children on a mysterious alien planet.
In the post-apocalyptic style world, the androids grapple with controlling the burgeoning colony of humans, who threaten to be torn apart by religious differences.

That level of appraisal has come to be expected of Scott, who has made epics like Gladiator, Alien and Blade Runner.
“I’m always searching for new frontiers in the sci-fi genre and have found a true original in Raised By Wolves – a wholly distinct and imaginative world, full of characters struggling with existential questions,” Scott told Deadline Hollywood in 2018.
“What makes us human? What constitutes a family? And what if we could start over again and erase the mess we’ve made of our planet? Would we survive? Would we do better?”

Scott directed the first two episodes of the 10-episode HBO Max original series, with his son Luke Scott taking over for three of the other episodes.

The duo executive produce alongside David W. Zucker, Jordan Sheehan, Adam Kolbrenner, and Mark Huffam.
