HBO Max Series has Perfect Rotten Tomatoes Score for New Season

Last week saw HBO Max debut the new season for their original sci-fi series Raised by Wolves and the Ridley Scott-produced series has reached an impressive benchmark, earning a perfect 100% rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. Only eleven reviews have been submitted for the series so far, but the new season's rating marks a major leap from the first season which managed a 74% rating and a "Certified Fresh" distinction. The User Ratings for the new season on Rotten Tomatoes also mark an increase, jumping from 77% for season one to 89% for season two. The new season will need nine more reviews to earn the  "Certified Fresh" bade, assuming those nine don't tank the rating in total.

Awarding the series a 9.3 out of 10, Paste Magazine's Allison Keene wrote that "There is simply nothing like Raised by Wolves on television. It's sci-fi, but it also really leans into fantasy. It's stocked with strange ideas and compelling performances, and has a keen sense of aesthetic." In their review, Ben Ravers of IndieWire wrote: "Season 2 never risks becoming boring -- the minimum requirement for any hourlong series. Collin and Salim alone should hold your attention."

Fans of the series should be happy to know that long-term planning for the series is a key component, meaning more seasons are in the cards as long as the viewership keeps up.

"There is a master plan," showrunner Aaron Guzikowski revealed to Screen Rant. "If you think of it as a house, the basic architecture, it's pretty worked out. But, then as you kinda get into the rooms and the interior design of the whole thing that can change and a lot of times it starts to talk back to you. You're seeing things and you're like, 'Wow, that actually is a lot more than I thought it would be, we should follow that and figure out where it goes.' And that's within, though, this kind of larger skeleton that does exist. So, I think you try to get the best of both where you have enough of a direction and a purpose where you don't find yourself just slapping on an ending at the end and just 'have a nice day.' There is a grand plan behind it all."

The first two episodes of Raised by Wolves season two are now streaming with new episodes released weekly on Thursdays.
