The viewing audience responded very well to the Fox television show Wayward Pines last summer, so much so that what had been intended to be a ten episode "event series" based on a trilogy of novels by Blake Crouch is continuing on into a second season with a story that goes beyond the source material.

Crouch and executive producer M. Night Shyamalan are both heavily involved with this second season, and in the video below they discuss how their decision to keep the show going is more than just a ratings grab. The video also gives fleeting glimpses of scenes from the upcoming season and introduces the actors who have been brought on to play new characters, while also giving updates on returning characters.

Jason Patric takes the lead in season two, which picks up 

after the shocking events of Season One, with the residents of Wayward Pines battling against the iron-fisted rule of the First Generation. Dr. THEO YEDLIN (Patric) – a new resident of Wayward Pines – 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.

Also in the cast are Djimon Hounsou, Hope Davis, Tom Stevens, Nimrat Kaur, Josh Helman, Kacey Rohl, Terrence Howard, Carla Gugino, Toby Jones, Melissa Leo, Tim Griffin, Shannyn Sossamon, and Charlie Tahan.

Whether this second season can replicate the success of the first remains to be seen. We'll have to wait until the premiere on Wednesday, May 25th to start finding out. But in the meantime, you can get an idea of what the new season will be like right here:
