The second season of Fox’s drama series Wayward Pines will receive its UK premiere on FOX UK on Wednesday June 8th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Based on the Blake Crouch novel, Wayward Pines initially followed US Secret Service agent Ethan Burke as he arrives in the bucolic town of Wayward Pines, ID, on a mission to find two missing federal agents. The cast for season one included, amongst others, Matt Dillon (Crash), Melissa Leo (The Fighter), Toby Jones (The Hunger Games), Carla Gugino (Watchmen), Terrence Howard (The Butler) and Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County).
The show’s 10 episode second season picks up after the shocking events of Season One, with the residents of Wayward Pines battling against the iron-fisted rule of the First Generation. Dr. Yedlin, 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.
As TVWise reported back in December when Fox ordered a second season, there will be a number of cast changes going forward. Matt Dillon will not be returning for the new episodes, though season one regulars Terrence Howard, Carla Gugino, Toby Jones, Melissa Leo, Tim Griffin, Shannyn Sossamon and Charlie Tahan will be reprising roles. New cast additions include Jason Patric, Nimrat Kaur, Josh Helman and Kacey Rohl.
