Wayward Pines returns for a second season this summer, so it might seem premature to declare its end. Executive producer M. Night Shyamalan likes endings, though, so he was enthusiastic to share his ultimate plan for the series, based on Blake Crouch’s books. At a Wondercon roundtable for the new season, Shyamalan declared Wayward Pines would be at most three seasons.

“I think we can say it’s a three-season story,” Shyamalan said. “If we get the opportunity to tell the third and final season, we can finish the story.”  Read More »

Last year was a bit of a comeback for M. Night Shyamalan. The director of The Sixth Sense and The Lady in the Water scored some points with audiences and critics with The Visit and Wayward Pines. The latter, ran by Chris Hodge, ran for 10 episodes on Fox and starred Matt DillonShannyn Sossamon, and more. Much of the original cast will not return for Wayward Pines season 2, but it’s just been confirmed Jason Patric will headline the next season.

wayward pines season 2

I love how modern television is giving us season-long mini-series, which allow for a richer story than allowed in the time restraints of the big screen, but also create full story arcs that don’t suffer from the seasonal strain of normal television. One of the latest in this genre is Wayward Pines, the M. Night Shyamalan-produced series based on the Wayward Pines novels by Blake Crouch.

The ten-episode limited series ran on Fox from May 14th to July 23rd 2015. But while the series has officially come to an end, M. Night Shyamalan and author Blake Crouch have an idea for a possible Wayward Pines season 2. But doesn’t this completely defeat the purpose of the limited television series premise? Will a second season happen?

Wayward Pines season two

Is anyone out there watching M. Night Shyamalan and Chad Hodge‘s TV series Wayward Pines on Fox? The series debuted about two years after it was picked up by the network, and while it didn’t do so well when it premiered up against the season finales of The Blacklist and Scandal, it’s actually found a decent audience since then.

But while the live numbers weren’t anything to write home about, Wayward Pines gained a record percentage DVR lift of 90% for a 1.9 rating, which isn’t bad at all. In the weeks since, it’s actually gained a consistent viewership (especially after DVR numbers come in), but that could get shaken up if the show may get a second season with a whole new cast.

New Wayward Pines trailer

M. Night Shyamalan produces the show Wayward Pines, based on the novel Pines by Blake Crouch, and the show really looks like some bizarre combination of Twin Peaks and The Prisoner. I’ve made that comparison before, but this new Wayward Pines trailer really hammers it home. Matt Dillon is a Secret Service agent investigating the disappearance of two other agents, when he finds himself trapped in a small town that seems friendly enough, but is actually far more sinister than its outward appearance suggests. Check out the new trailer below. Read More »
