Wayward Pines Video: Terrence Howard Invites Jason Patric to Save Lives

A onetime Lost Boy is poised to find himself in a craaaaazy new world, as seen in this exclusive sneak peek from the Season 2 premiere of Fox’s Wayward Pines (airing Wednesday at 9/8c).

The follow-up to last summer’s No. rated drama picks up after the shocking events of the Season 1 finale, with the residents of Wayward Pines battling against the iron-fisted rule of the First Generation brats. Patric’s Dr. Theo Yedlin, a new “arrival” in the Idaho haven, will find himself in the middle of this rebellion — but first he needs to be recruited by future sheriff Arnold Pope (Empire‘s Terrence Howard), who in the clip above courts the doctor to “save 1,000 lives” by putting his faith in some far-out medical tech.

In addition to Howard, Carla Gugino, Melissa Leo and Charlie Tahan will, in a limited capacity, reprise their Season 1 roles as Kate, Pam and Charlie, while Toby Jones (Captain America), Shannyn Sossamon (Sleepy Hollow) and Tim Griffin will also put in appearances, as David Pilcher, Theresa and Adam.
