Our first look at Ridley Scott’s new television series Raised by Wolves a couple of weeks ago had us intrigued. This new one has pushed it to the top our must-watch list.

Scott is both executive producing and has directed the first two episodes of the series, and what we get to see reminds us of many of his previous sci-fi works – in a good way.

The series centres on two androids whose task is to raise human children on a far-flung planet. But conflict isn’t far away as human colonists bring their beliefs to the planet.

Created and written by Aaron Guzikowski, who penned 2013’s Prisoners, HBO’s Raised by Wolves commences airing from September 3.
