How 'Alien' Inspired Ridley Scott on "Raised by Wolves"

"Raised by Wolves" "presents a futurescape both familiar and radically novel thanks to director/executive producer, Sir Ridley Scott. Stars Travis Fimmel, Niamh Algar, Amanda Collin, and Abubakar Salim, and writer Aaron Guzikowski reveal to IMDb how this world was first actualized by Sir Scott's storyboards and what it was like to step into his vision.

Watch the interview



After Earth is torn apart by religious differences and the human race teeters on the edge of extinction, an atheistic android architect sends two creations - Mother and Father - to start a peaceful, godless colony on the planet Kepler-22b. From executive producer Ridley Scott, Raised by Wolves follows Mother and Father as they attempt to raise human children in this mysterious virgin land - a treacherous and difficult task that's jeopardized by the arrival of the Mithraic, a deeply devout religious order of surviving humans. As the androids make contact with this zealous and dangerous people, they struggle to control the beliefs of their fiercely self-determining children.

Did You Know?


The series was shot in Cape Town, South Africa at the Film Afrika Studios, as well as in various locations in the Western Cape. South Africa's Western Cape province in the southern tip of the country provided a convenient location for both the surface of Kepler-22b and the interiors of the Mithraic ship. The quiet, rugged desert areas outside of Cape Town to the north of the city acted as the perfectly alien environment for a planet that is liveable, but not exactly hospitable. Despite the dryness of the environment, the Western Cape is also surrounded by the meeting point of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, adding to the geographic diversity of the world. See more »

All over the place
1 October 2020 | by Acid_ReflexSee all my reviews

Without creating spoilers, I would say this series starts out really strong and then gets really silly by the end with the characters becoming just stupid enough to keep the series going to an even sillier somewhat cliffhanger ending.
