Earlier this season, Terrence Howard starred in a new FOX show called Empire. It quickly became the biggest hit in network television in years and will be back for a second season. He’s co-starring in another new FOX show called Wayward Pines. Will that be a hit in the ratings as well or, will it be cancelled like so many others? Stay tuned to find out.
On Wayward Pines, Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) drives to the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, in search of two missing federal agents. One was a former partner and they once had an affair. A truck slams into his car, he wakes up in the local hospital, and things start to get really strange. The cast of this thriller series also includes Howard, Melissa Leo, Carla Gugino, Toby Jones, Shannyn Sossamon, Charlie Tahan, Reed Diamond, Juliette Lewis, and Tim Griffin.

What do you think? Do you like the Wayward Pines TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?
Please Bring wayward pines back on. The ending was okay but, I believe it was the greatest show! So, please bring it back.
I love wayward pines. I had hoped it would return soon. I hated matt Dillon died
i didnt see something about mary so dont know about comparison
it was kind of campy at times but i really enjoyed it and the story is so good – now i am reading the books different from the tv version but also good
I really wanted to like this show. Matt Dillion was the draw, but the script was so bad it sounded I kept thinking of his character in There’s Somethingn About Mary saying stupid things ironically. Let it got!
