Last summer, FOX launched Wayward Pines. The network announced that the last episode of the season was the “series finale” but later decided to order a second season anyway. Was that move a mistake? Should Wayward Pines be renewed for a third season?
On Wayward Pines, the residents of the town must battle against the iron-fisted rule of the First Generation. Doctor Theo Yedlin (Jason Patric) is a new resident of the community. He awakens from suspended animation and finds himself in the middle of this rebellion. He tries to understand what Wayward Pines really is and while helping to preserve the endangered human race. The rest of the cast includes Djimon Hounsou, Nimrat Kaur, Josh Helman, Kacey Rohl, Tom Stevens, Hope Davis, Shannyn Sossamon, Carla Gugino, Toby Jones, Tim Griffin, Charlie Tahan, Melissa Leo, and Terrence Howard.
M. Night Shyamalan has said that he’d like the show to run for three seasons but, with ratings like these, it seems unlikely that the network will order season three.
But, what do you think? Should FOX renew Wayward Pines for a third season or, should the series be cancelled instead? Is two seasons enough?
