Fox renews Wayward Pines for a second season

This past summer, the television series Wayward Pines, based on the trilogy of novels by Blake Crouch, enjoyed a successful ten episode run on Fox. Although those ten episodes were an adaptation of all three novels, executive producer Chad Hodge noted that the finale would leave a window open to the possibility of the TV show's story continuing beyond what Crouch had put on the page. Wayward Pines' ratings were so good, it's going to be going through that window.

Fox has officially announced that they have renewed Wayward Pines for a second season, which will air during the summer of 2016.

Executive produced by M. Night Shyamalan, who also directed the pilot episode, Wayward Pines has the following set-up:

Secret Service agent Ethan Burke (Academy Award nominee Matt Dillon, “Crash,” “City of Ghosts”) arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID, on a mission to find two missing federal agents. But instead of answers, Ethan’s investigation only turns up more questions. Each step closer to the truth takes Ethan further from the life he knew, from the husband and father he was, until he must face the terrifying reality that he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive.

In addition to Dillon, the cast includes Terrence Howard, Melissa Leo, Carla Gugino, Charlie Tahan, Christian Tessier, Giacomo Baessato, Scott Michael Campbell, Shannyn Sossamon, and Juliette Lewis.

I didn't watch Wayward Pines when it was airing, but it sounds intriguing and has a great cast. I might have to check it out.

Glad to hear it! I enjoyed the show. At times it was predictable, but I enjoyed it. Wonder if their gonna figure a way to bring back the original cast, or maybe just Dillon. Maybe he doesn't really die. Maybe no one really dies. Guess we'll see. There was one part that didn't make sense to me in the show though. They show the founder of Wayward Pines leaving the town to talk to what seems to be government officials. If the world had been destroyed years ago how does he do that? Was that just a

Was that just a flash back to before the world was destroyed? I believe they said he built the town after the world was destroyed.

yeah I wondered about that as well, I assumed that is it like a trick that they are telling everybody that the world they know is gone, but there's apparently a way to travel back to 2014 and forth into Wayward Pines without too much effort...
its like the show is actually still set in 2014 and the founder lied about everything?

good luck with that...

99% of that cast above has been (apparently) killed off in those ten episodes... Juliette Lewis, gone after what.. the 3rd show?. Dillon, didnt survive the finale, terrance howard, gone after the 4th show.
will people embrace the send season with many of the familiar faces not returning?

I mean... shit.... will people watch a show about the main character's son growing up in Wayward Pines? dont get me wrong, i'd love to see more but the way it ended it might be a bit difficult to continue

Caught it when it aired. A solid mystery and reveal, really good cast but totally botched the ending in it's closing minutes by throwing in a very unwelcome and droll twist that would make me not want to watch series 2 if they follow it through. Would have loved it if they had just ended it those few minutes earlier.
