After being the surprise summer hit last year, Fox announced that it would be bringing the series Wayward Pines back for a second season.
Now we know who will be leading the cast for the second season of the series.
Jason Patric has been cast in a leading role in Wayward Pines, the hit psychological thriller event series returning for a second season this summer on FOX.
Patric will portray DR. THEO YEDLIN, a confident, driven surgeon whose leadership skills will prove invaluable to the residents of Wayward Pines.
From executive producer M. Night Shyamalan and based on the world created by author Blake Crouch in his international best-selling series of books, 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 – 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.
“Jason is an incredibly grounded and believable actor,” said Shyamalan. “I’m so excited for audiences to see what he brings to the world of Wayward Pines.”
