FOX has renewed hit psychological thriller Wayward Pines for a second season, it was announced today by David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.
The series comes from M. Night Shyamalan (“The Sixth Sense,” “The Visit”) and based on Blake Crouch’s international best-selling series of books, 10 all-new episodes of the suspenseful drama are set to air in Summer 2016. The second season will pick up in the wake of Season One, when a new arrival in Wayward Pines finds himself in the middle of a serious rebellion, as the residents battle over how to preserve the endangered human race.
“WAYWARD PINES was a huge hit for us this past summer. We were absolutely blown away by the mysterious and surprising world that Night and his team created, and the twisting-and-turning storytelling that drew viewers in from day one,” said Madden. “Season Two is going to take the suspense, the vision of the future and the haunting character drama to whole new levels, and we can’t wait for our fans to continue that ride next year.”
WAYWARD PINES is a production of 20th Century Fox Television. The series is executive-produced by Donald De Line (“Green Lantern,” “The Italian Job”), Ashwin Rajan (“Devil,” “The Visit”), Mark Friedman (“Believe,” “The Forgotten”), Blake Crouch and M. Night Shyamalan.
