“Raised by Wolves ss 3”: release date, announcement
HBO Max has gained a huge army of loyal fans by launching the TV series “Raised by Wolves” on its channel. The continuation of the picture has not been officially announced, but film critics are sure that the creators of the project will not stop at two seasons. The expected time for the premiere of new episodes is early 2023.
Do not forget that the creator of the project Ridley Scott said that he plans to release 5 seasons, the script for which is almost ready. Whether this will happen, time will tell.
Programmed to raise offspring, Mother and Father spare no effort. But no matter what they do, the children die. The growing Campion buries them with his parents, and when in the 1st season the followers of the Mithraic mission begin to threaten the peaceful way of life of the family, the boy does not know which side to take. By that time, Mother seems completely distraught.
A dispute arises between Father and Mother: he is convinced that the boy needs the company of his own kind and insists on calling the followers of the Mithraic cult. Considering the fanatics dangerous, the Mother inflicts damage on the Father, and soon the Mithraic decide to take Campion off the planet. The android’s abilities proliferate, she destroys the followers and their ship.
Before burning the ship, she finds five children there, whom she leaves alive, and begins to take care of them. But the situation repeats itself: the children begin to get sick again and slowly wither away. Fearing that the same fate awaits them as the firstborn, the Mother tries to find the source of the disease. They turn out to be plant tubers, which they constantly consume as food.
Seeing the Mother as a source of trouble, the Mithraic made repeated attempts to kidnap Campion. According to their faith, the boy was a prophet, but the robotic android considered herself an atheist and rejected any faith. Campion himself was so frightened by her behavior that he began to hide his true attitude towards her and even tried to take other children away.
So they fight: people obsessed with their own beliefs, and programmed machines whose intellect is not able to understand the importance and power of prayer. Campion, unlike his parents, understands why this is necessary, and sometimes it is even easier for him to realize that there is a God in this world…
