Fox Renews 'Wayward Pines' For Season 2

Fox is bringing back Wayward Pines for another season.

The network on Wednesday has given the green light for the limited series executive produced by M. Night Shyamalan and Chad Hodge. Hodge, who developed the property based on Blake Crouch's book and worked as the series showrunner, will not return for a second season. Mark Friedman from the TV series The Forgotten and Believe will replace Hodge as the series showrunner. Wayward Pines will return for the summer 2016 and will pick up after the events of the season-one finale, when someone new arrives in the mysterious town during a major rebellion over how to preserve the human race. “Wayward Pines was a huge hit for us this past summer," Fox Broadcasting Entertainment president David Madden said Wednesday in a statement. "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. 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 was ranked as the highest rated broadcast scripted series in the key demographic last summer. Wayward Pines originally starred Matt Dillon, Toby Jones, Carla Gugino, Melissa Leo and Terrence Howard but, after events that occurred in Season 1 it is difficult to say who will be returning to the sci-fi drama.
