‘Raised by Wolves’ Season 2 Introduces New Dangers to The Colony
The battle over faith and the survival of humanity continues with much higher stakes in Raised by Wolves Season 2.
Ridley Scott has used the lens of capitalism, technology, and colonization to explore faith, religion, and morality in his movies. The director has made historic epics directly about it, but his sci-fi stories tend to use analogs. He challenged the idea of having a soul in Blade Runner and made Jesus an alien explorer in Prometheus.
Raised by Wolves combines colonization of distant planets and challenges the societal value of faith. Earth has been ravaged by a violent religious war. In order to save humanity, two androids set out to a new planet to raise a new society without religion. Their plan is jeopardized when a devout congregation of surviving humans arrives on the planet.
It’s a much more in-your-face examination of how Scott sees all of these topics.
