Wayward Pines premiered in May of this year, and was a huge success for the Fox network in ratings and reviews alike, critics praising the show for its puzzling story and wacky atmosphere. Initially conceived as a 10-episode miniseries, the show still ended on a pretty big cliffhanger, leaving audiences to wonder if Fox would bring us back to the small town.
The network announced on Wednesday after nearly six months since the season one finale that the series has been renewed for a second season, telling more stories from the Twin Peak-feeling city.
Details are scarce at the moment, but multiple sources say that the show will pick up right where the first season left off, with another new resident entering the town in the middle of a big rebellion on how to survive the post-apocalypse and maintain the human race.
Hopefully, in addition to picking up where season one left off, we get to see the return of the surviving characters, as the show ended on a pretty thrilling note. I look forward to seeing the direction the second season takes, which is set to premiere in summer off 2016.
