Raised by Wolves is a British television sitcom that premiered on Channel 4 and is now streaming on Acorn TV. Created by Caitlin Moran and her sister Caroline, the show follows the lives of six siblings who have been raised by their eccentric single mother on a Wolverhampton council estate. Set in the present day, the show ran from 2013 to 2016 and consists of two series, each containing six episodes.

The central character of the series is Della Garry, the unconventional mother who raised her children to be self-sufficient and free-spirited. Played by the talented actress Rebekah Staton, Della is eccentric, unapologetic, and unconventional in her parenting methods. She’s a feminist and a socialist, with strong opinions on education, politics, and pop culture. Her parenting style is a blend of old-fashioned values and modern-day wisdom, which often results in hilariously disastrous outcomes.

Philip Jackson plays the role of Grampy, the patriarch of the Garry family. He’s a grumpy old man who’s not afraid to speak his mind and has a great sense of humor. Grampy is a retired lorry driver who’s seen it all and isn’t impressed with the modern world. He struggles to understand his grandchildrens' obsession with technology and pop culture, but he loves them fiercely nonetheless. Grampy is the anchor of the family and provides a sense of stability and tradition in an otherwise unconventional household.

Helen Monks plays the role of Germaine Garry, the oldest daughter of the clan. Germaine is a precocious teenager who likes to think she’s more mature than she actually is. She’s a bit of a rebel and is always getting into trouble, much to her mother’s frustration. Germaine is street-smart and resourceful, but she’s also very vulnerable and has a sensitive side that she rarely shows.

The five other siblings in the Garry family are equally fascinating characters. Wyatt, the eldest son, dreams of being a rapper but struggles with stage fright. Aretha, the middle daughter, is obsessed with fashion and makeup, and spends most of her time locked in her room with her friends. Yoko, the second son, is a math prodigy who struggles to connect with his siblings. Mariah, the youngest daughter, is a bubbly and curious child who’s always asking questions. Cher, the youngest son, is a shy and sensitive boy who’s often overshadowed by his siblings.

The show is a charming and offbeat family sitcom that’s loaded with humor and heart. The themes of the show are relatable to anyone who’s grown up in a non-traditional family or has felt like they don’t quite fit in. The show explores issues of identity, family, and belonging with warmth and sincerity. The cast is excellent, and the chemistry between the actors feels very authentic.

Overall, Raised by Wolves is a delightful sitcom that’s perfect for anyone who’s in need of a good laugh. It’s a feel-good show that celebrates the quirks and eccentricities that make us who we are.

Raised by Wolves is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (18 episodes). The series first aired on December 23, 2013.
