HBO Max is canceling Ridley Scott’s Raised By Wolves after two seasons. Created by Aaron Guzikowski, Ridley Scott, and David W. Zucker, Raised By Wolves revolves around two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious maiden planet. The show‘s cancelation will come as a surprise to fans who’ve enjoyed the sci-fi goodness on offer.

“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,” HBO Max said in a statement.

Raised By Wolves star Abubakar Salim shared the news on Twitter while asking for the show to be picked up by another network or platform.

“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,” Salim said. “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,” Salim continued. “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.”

Major publications are already covering Salim’s bid for the show to continue, including us. Fans have responded positively to his pleas, with many sharing their passion for the show via social media. I know that JoBlo’s Kevin Fraser is a big fan of the series, judging from his screams when the news hit our inbox. We hope that Salim and the rest of the Raised By Wolves team can find the series a new home.
