The film vet, whose credits include The Lost Boys and Sleepers, has been tapped to star in Season 2 of Fox’s mind-bending drama, the network announced Thursday.
The show’s sophomore run will pick up where Season 1 left off, when a new arrival in the titular Idaho town finds himself in the middle of a serious rebellion, as the residents, led by the bratty First Generation, battle over how to preserve the endangered human race.
Patric will play said newcomer: Dr. Theo Yedlin, a confident, driven surgeon whose leadership skills become invaluable to Wayward Pines’ residents.
“Jason is an incredibly grounded and believable actor,” said executive producer M. Night Shyamalan in a statement. “I’m so excited for audiences to see what he brings to the world of Wayward Pines.”
Wayward Pines returns to Fox this summer. Will Patric’s casting get you watching?
