Though FOX promoted Wayward Pines as a one season show, the series did well enough for them to want to bring it back for a second season. Executive producer M. Night Shyamalan now says that he wants the series to run for three seasons. As per usual, the show’s fate will largely depend on the ratings. Will it be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
The second season of Wayward Pines picks up where the first season left off. 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.
