In case the official trailer for director/executive producer Ridley Scott and HBO Max's sci-fi drama Raised by Wolves that was released earlier this month wasn't enough to convince you to check out the series when it premieres on September 3, how about a second? The 10-episode action-drama features Scott directing the first two episodes, marking his television series directorial debut for American audiences – and from what you're about the see in the following new look, he's making the most of it as Mother does what she needs to do to keep his children safe:
From executive producer Ridley Scott, Raised by Wolves centers on two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences, the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task.
When the series was first announced, Scott explained why he chose this project in particular: "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: 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?"
