Wayward Pines

Goodbye Matt Dillon. We hardly knew you.

Season two of Wayward Pines has a new leading man in the form of Jason Patric (Rush, Narc).

The psychological thriller from M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) returns summer 2016 on FOX.

Patric is said to play Dr. Theo Yedlin, a confident, driven surgeon whose leadership skills will prove invaluable to the residents of Wayward Pines.

“Jason is an incredibly grounded and believable actor,” said Shyamalan. “I’m so excited for audiences to see what he brings to the world of Wayward Pines.”

Based on the book series by author Blake Crouch, the 10-episode, second season will pick 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. Theo 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.

More as we have it.
