Night Shyamalan returns as executive producer and Jason Patric and Djimon Hounsou join the existing cast members from the previous season including Terrence Howard, Carla Gugino, Toby Jones, Melissa Leo, Tim Griffin, Shannyn Sossamon, and Charlie Tahan.
From the Press Release: WAYWARD PINES, last summer’s No. 1 scripted series on broadcast television, returns for a second season Wednesday, May 25 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. From executive producer M. Night Shyamalan ("The Sixth Sense," "The Visit"), the 10-episode, psychological thriller is based on the rich world created by author Blake Crouch in his international best-selling series of books.

Dr. THEO YEDLIN (Patric) - a new resident of Wayward Pines - awakens from suspended animation and finds himself in the middle of this rebellion, as he tries to understand what Wayward Pines really is and help preserve the endangered human race.
Also joining the second season are cast members Tom Stevens ("Cedar Cove"), returning from Season One as JASON HIGGINS, a member of the First Generation and Pilcher’s young acolyte; Nimrat Kaur ("Homeland") as REBECCA, who has her own secrets she keeps from Theo, her husband; Josh Helman ("Mad Max: Fury Road," "X-Men: Days of Future Past") as XANDER, a resident working to undermine Wayward Pines from within; and Kacey Rohl ("Hannibal") as KERRY, one of Jason’s lieutenants in the civil war going on in Wayward Pines.
