Who Plays Cleaver In Raised By Wolves?

"Raised by Wolves" is the bonkers HBO Max series from Ridley Scott that debuted in 2020, and just saw its Season 2 premiere on February 3, 2022. The story begins when two androids, Mother (Amanda Collin) and Father (Abubakar Salim), flee Earth, which is then destroyed in a war between Atheists and a religious group called the Mithraic . The androids end up on the exoplanet Kepler-22b 600 light years away, along with one human embryo who is born shortly later. Soon, Mother, Father, and their only child Campion (Winta McGrath) discover that they're not the only refugees on the planet. Mithraic refugees have also settled nearby.

In Season 1, Mother and Father take in a group of Mithraic children, which puts them on a path to conflict with the Mithraic survivors. Meanwhile, two Mithraic survivors, Sue (Niamh Algar) and Marcus (Travis Fimmel) are secretly Atheists who murdered a Mithraic couple and impersonated them to board their ship and escape Earth.

In the show's second chapter, Season 2, Mother, Father, and the children find themselves crash landed on the other side of the planet, but not entirely free from the Mithraic refugees. Marcus becomes convinced he's a prophet, changes is name to Caleb, and vows to convert everyone left on Kepler-22b.
