The network on Wednesday handed out a second-season renewal for the limited series originally executive produced by M. Night Shyamalan and Chad Hodge. Hodge, who developed the property based on Blake Crouch’s book and served as showrunner, will not return for season two.
Fox may not have the best ratings this summer. But it does have the appreciation of media buyers for trying something new. They say the network’s ambitious miniseries Wayward Pines is the most impressive new show of the summer, despite posting lower ratings than several other new shows.
Ssychological thriller Wayward Pines will premiere next May 14 simultaneously in more than 125 countries, including the United States.
