Wayward Pines returns for a second season Wednesday, May 25 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
From executive producer M. Night Shyamalan, the 10-episode, psychological thriller is based on the rich world created by author Blake Crouch in his international best-selling series of books.
Starring Jason Patric, Djimon Hounsou and Hope Davis, the 10-episode, second season will pick 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 joining the second season are cast members Tom Stevens, returning from Season One as JASON HIGGINS, a member of the First Generation and Pilcher’s young acolyte; Nimrat Kaur as REBECCA, who has her own secrets she keeps from Theo, her husband; Josh Helman as XANDER, a resident working to undermine Wayward Pines from within; and Kacey Rohl as KERRY, one of Jason’s lieutenants in the civil war going on in Wayward Pines.
Additionally, several Season One cast members will appear in Season Two, including Terrence Howard, Carla Gugino, Toby Jones, Melissa Leo, Tim Griffin, Shannyn Sossamon and Charlie Tahan.
Wayward Pines was a surprise hit for FOX and ranked as Summer 2015’s No. 1 broadcast scripted series among Adults 18-49.
