It’s the Abbies’ world and we just live in it — so learns Jason Patric’s character as Fox returns to Wayward Pines this spring.
In this first look featurette above, executive producer M. Night Shyamalan and author Blake Crouch set the stage for the midseason thriller’s admittedly unexpected encore, seeing as Season 1 exhausted the source material in Crouch’s original novels.
Premiering Wednesday, May 25 at 9/8c, the 10-episode Season 2 picks up after the events of Season 1, with the residents battling the First Generation’s brat pack. Dr. Theo Yedlin (The Lost Boys‘ Patric) finds himself in the middle of a rebellion, as he tries to understand what Wayward Pines really is and help preserve the endangered human race.
Two-time Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou plays C.J. Mitchum, a town historian who can provide a unique bridge between the current world of Wayward Pines and the previous world that humans inhabited.
Joining Patric and Hounsou as series regulars are Season 1’s Hope Davis (American Crime) and Tom Stevens (Cedar Cove), returning as Wayward Pines Academy principal Megan Fisher and First Generation member Jason Higgins, plus Nimrat Kaur (Homeland), Josh Helman (Max Max: Fury Road) and Kacey Rohl (Hannibal) as Theo’s wife Rebecca, Wayward Pines resident Xander and Jason’s lieutenant Kerry, respectively.
As previously reported, Carla Gugino, Melissa Leo and Charlie Tahan will, in a limited capacity, reprise their roles as Kate, Pam and Charlie. Similarly, Terrence Howard (Empire), Toby Jones (Captain America), Shannyn Sossamon (Sleepy Hollow) and Tim Griffin will also put in appearances, as former sheriff Arnold Pope, David Pilcher, Theresa Burke and Adam Hassler.
