The first season was released in October and November of last year.

While the Scavengers Reign series will not continue on Max, the first season will begin airing on Netflix on May 31st. Word is that the streamer is open to a second season if the dozen episodes perform well enough.

Joe Bennett and Charles Huettner created the series based on Scavengers, their 2016 short film. Bennett, Huettner, Chris Prynoski. Sean Buckelew and James Merrill serve as co-executive producers, with Benjy Brooke as supervising director.
