Wayward Pines was a bit of a surprise hit for Fox last summer, produced by M. Night Shyamalan and Chris Hodge, the show dealt with Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) who, after being involved in a car accident, woke up in the mysterious town of Wayward Pines and must uncover its secrets. Adapted from Blake Crouch's bestselling series of books, Wayward Pines was initially supposed to be a ten-episode event series, but as with anything successful, people wanted more of it. If you're planning on watching the series but haven't yet gotten around to it, there will be a few spoilers below.

A second season of Wayward Pines was ordered late last year and it will pick up after the shocking events of last season with the town's residents battling the iron-fisted rule of the First Generation. Jason Patric has stepped in to be the show's new lead and Deadline says that he will be playing Dr. Theo Yedlin, a confident and driven surgeon who "awakens from suspended animation and finds himself in the middle of this rebellion, as he tries to understand what Wayward Pines really is and help preserve the endangered human race." Wayward Pines producer M. Night Shyamalan said that "Jason is an incredibly grounded and believable actor, I’m so excited for audiences to see what he brings to the world of Wayward Pines.

The second season of Wayward Pines will also consist of ten episodes and is set to air this summer. As someone who enjoyed Wayward Pines a lot more than I was expecting to, I know I'll be checking it out to see how they can possibly top the mindf**k's that populated the show's first season.

spoiler for season one

cool news! I have always liked him as an actor. I was confused at the first season though. Maybe I'm just wrong, but I could have sworn there was a scene where the doctor leaves the town and goes to talk with people in the government. Was this scene just a flashback, or was it taking place in the present time.

The first season wasn't bad, though consisted of many of the bigger name actors getting removed from the series after a few episodes. It's The Prisoner (1960s TV series) meets Shyamalan's The Village and often skittered around being essential viewing without ever really making it. Fun enough stuff though.

I hope he'll be a villain. Love his villainous role in The Losers.

Big +1 for you, sir. I absolutely love The Losers and think it's an underrated gem.

But Patrick is a great actor; you ever see him in Narc?

The article says he's playing the new lead, so no it most likely won't be a villainous role.

@Soloist - The Losers is a great popcorn movie. I like the scene where Chris Evans has to run away from the bad guys with Don't Stop Believing by Journey in the background. And yes, I did watch him in Narc and he was awesome in it. Heck, he was even awesome in Sleepers and Speed 2: Cruise Control. I know the movie sucks when being compared to Speed 1 but I think he did his best with the given script. I hardly see him in movies anymore. Glad he gets the new role in Wayward Pine.

@moonrider - I did notice that but deep down I hope he'll turn out to be a villain.

I haven't seen Wayward Pines yet. But I'm glad to see Jason Patric is leading the next season. He's not an actor I see a lot of, but, especially as he's gotten older, he's an actor usually worth watching. Guy needs to get a regular TV show once his run on this is done.
