HBO Max announced today that Raised by Wolves has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes two weeks into the sci-fi drama's run, which has been garnering mostly-favorable reviews from critics.

The hour-long series premiered on September 3 with three episodes immediately available for streaming. Subsequent weeks have seen two episodes release at a time. Viewership has been strong thus far, with the show ranking as the best-performing original on HBO Max since its May launch.

Raised by Wolves takes place on a mysterious virgin planet, where two androids have been tasked with raising human children. As the colony of humans grows and develops, it threatens to be torn apart by religious differences - causing the androids to realize that controlling human beliefs is not an easy task.

Look for Season 2 of Raised by Wolves sometime in 2021. For now, new episodes are dropping weekly on Thursdays, with the season finale scheduled for October 1.
