Fox‘s Wayward Pines Season 2 has been confirmed for 10-episodes. I was under the impression that “they” said that in no way were they going to make a season 2, guess that changed quick when Fox discovered they actually made something good so now they are going to milk it. I hope they make something good with season 2 because I really enjoyed Fox’s Wayward Pines Season 1. M. Night Shyamalan’s Wayward Pines Season 2 will premiere Summer 2016.
Press Release: FOX has renewed hit psychological thriller WAYWARD PINES for a second season, it was announced today by David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.
From M. Night Shyamalan ("The Sixth Sense," "The Visit") and based on Blake Crouch’s international best-selling series of books, 10 all-new episodes of the suspenseful drama are set to air in Summer 2016. The second season 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.
"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."
