Even though I never caught the second season, I absolutely adored the first season of M. Night Shyamalan’s “Wayward Pines”, which starred Matt Dillon as a Secret Service agent goes to Wayward Pines, Idaho, in search of two federal agents who have gone missing in the bucolic town. It’s revealed that the town is post-apocalypse and carries the sole remaining humans on Earth. The second season, starring Jason Patric, picked up after the shocking events of Season One, with the residents of Wayward Pines battling against the iron-fisted rule of the First Generation. FOX hopes to move forward with a third season, Deadline reports out of TCA.
“We don’t know yet,” said Fox Entertainment president David Madden when asked if the series is dead during the Fox executive session at TCA where he joined on stage chairman Dana Walden. “M. Night has talked to both Dana and me recently about the possibilities of what a third season could be. We are exploring story and casting ideas; we haven’t made any decisions.”
Developed by Chad Hodge based on the novels by Blake Crouch, “Wayward Pines” was a solid DVR performer the first season. Ratings tapered off in Season 2.
