When will Wayward Pines season 2 be released on Fox? The second season is being considered based on the series ratings. What about premiere date?
The television series Wayward Pines, developed by Chad Hodge and based on the Wayward Pines novels by Blake Crouch, was launched on Fox in May the current year. M. Night Shyamalan became the director of the pilot episode. The plot follows the story of Secret Service Agent Ethan Burke, who comes to small mysterious town Wayward Pines, Idaho, to investigate the disappearance of two federal agents, one of which is his former beloved. Matt Dillon performed the main role, and the filming has been held in Burnaby (interiors) and Agassiz (exteriors).
The first season comprised 10 episodes. The first five episodes based on the first novel named Pines, and the plot of the second and the third novels Wayward and The Last Town respectively became the core for the remaining five episodes.
With the series setting a record DVR rise, Fox management was going to renew the show for Season 2 in the same world, but with the other characters. The matter is that the contractual agreements with the main actors have expired already due to the long break between production and release, that’s why Fox is planning to form a new creative team to discuss the given possibility as soon as possible.
Wayward Pines season 2 premiere – [May 25, 2016] (UPDATE 2)
High rating and constant discussions on the Internet only prove the fact that the financing of the new episodes is necessary, that’s why the motives of Fox are quite reasonable. The successful projects couldn’t remain without renewal, that’s why we hope to hear the premiere date of Season 2 and the new cast.
At the moment there is
no official confirmation for the negotiation start, so we should wait for the final of the current season and then ask the rights holders about the second season. We’re following the news and will publish all fresh data here. Follow the updates and support the show in comments!
