WAYWARD PINES: Fox orders Second Season

After months of speculation, Fox Entertainment President David Madden  announced Fox wants more of the land of WAYWARD PINES. Season one, which was based on the trilogy by Blake Crouch, averaged just under four million viewers per episode and did well in the ke
y 18-49 demo, making it the top scripted drama of the Summer. Several months back, producer M. Night Shyamalan did reveal that he and Blake had some ideas if a second
season was ordered.

“WAYWARD PINES was a huge hit for us this past summer. 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,” said Madden. “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.”

The second season, expected to premiere in the summer of 2016, will consist of ten episodes and “will pick up in the wake of Season One, when a new arrival in Wayward Pines finds himself in the middle of a serious rebellion, as the residents battle over how to preserve the endangered human race.”

Congratulations to Blake and co!
