Fox Could Bring “Wayward Pines” Back for Another Season

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.

    Way to spoil the first season for those haven’t watched it (and may still want to).

    • Grimphantom

      A bit of lame excuse since the show is everywhere to watch…..

    • john

      The first season aired over 2 years ago. Watch the show or accept the responsibility of dodging spoilers.

        Fucking hell…it was a sideways remark about how people are always going on about spoilers for this, that or the other.
        And NO Grimphantom, with your fucking GIFs, I never once used an “excuse”.

          “Fucking hell…it was a sideways remark about how people are always going on about spoilers for this, that or the other.”

          But YOU’RE the one going on about spoilers for THIS.

          You’re saying you meant this as a joke? Um, good one.

          • Darren Kerr

            Did I “joke” about anything John?
            Am I “going on” about it?
            It was 1 remark…try to get your delicate head around that concept.
            End of discussion.
            Goodbye…you’re boring me.

          • john

            HAHA. Dude, YOU said “going on.”

            You should end the discussion. You really can’t keep up.

            Man, someone needs to grow a set and work on their short little fuse. HAHA. So sensitive.

            Never been the same since your Mum left me.

          • john

            Haha. Hilarious watching you break down over this. Man up.

          • Darren Kerr

            Jesus Christ are you still “going on” about this?
            I gave up on you yesterday.
            Drag yourself out of the basement…it’s a sunny day outside.

          • john

            Clearly you did not give up. Sensitive loser got his feelings hurt by a question. Hahaha. Now. Really give up and don’t reply.

      same here. i barely remember season 2 but i seem to remember it was ok. nothing UBER-special but it was watchable.

  • Khy

    With M Night enjoying a bit of a resurgence I wouldn’t be too surprised if they go ahead.

    • J Jett

      Khy, that’s what i was thinking too. 🙂

  • Mackey

    I made it about half way thru Season 2. The episodes I watched pretty much bored me to tears. Season 1 was awesome.

  • Neto Ribeiro

    I dropped the season 2, it was horrible and it was like trying to take water from a rock. Season 1 was great, so was its ending. Let it go, Fox.

    • KSE1977

      I liked that they tried something different, just not that they ended up back where the books ended originally. Either you go all-in or you go completely original.

  • BreeBennett

    I only watched the first season, for me it was a good ending. Never bothered me about not watching season 2.

  • tyler

    Really enjoyed the 1st season because it had very good actors and the story line was pretty good. Couldn’t make it past one episode of season 2.

  • KSE1977

    Would love to see a season 3, perhaps even further into the future when the abbies have evolved into something else? Could be a proper Planet of the Apes styled show.

  • ShadowInc

    I soldiered through the first series despite it eventually declining into silliness, so it’s amazing to me that this show got more than one season.

  • Shane o mac

    Liked this show and hope it gets another season
