HBO Max Drops New Trailer For Highly Anticipated ‘Raised By Wolves’
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, HBO Max is set to drop a new sci-fi TV series next month. Titled Raised by Wolves and created by the famed Ridley Scott, viewers are anticipating a lot for the new show. Now, a new trailer has been released that delves further into what people can expect.
As Forbes points out, while the first trailer released for Raised by Wolves was a little light on detail, the second installment offers up plenty of new information.
The clip opened by introducing one of the androids, Mother, who is tasked with raising human children on a new planet. Hope is offered up as they are seen with the human babies, one even tearing up at the sight. However, things quickly degenerate from there.
As an apparent attempt to learn from their mistakes, the androids have been programmed to raise the youngsters as atheists, indicating that perhaps religion was Earth’s downfall in Raised by Wolves. Some conflict is also raised as Mother explains that there are still other humans who have survived and that they believe that having robots raising children is a sin.
These fears do eventuate, as people are seen speaking to the youngsters, and later, discussing certain issues. It was also at this point in the clip that the secondary robot, Father, appeared to be conflicted with his partner’s choices. There is some indication that she also may have gone on a killing rampage on Earth prior to escaping to the new planet — and may continue if attacked again.
However, what will happen remains to be seen and viewers will just have to wait until the series premieres in order to find out more.
