Wayward Pines was a pleasant surprise for FOX last summer, scoring stellar ratings. Naturally, the network renewed the M. Night Shyamalan-produced series. I actually quite enjoyed it myself.
When it returns for its sophomore season, Jason Patric steps into the lead role for a vacating Matt Dillon. Djimon Hounsou and Nimrat Kaur also join the show as new series regulars.
Carla Gugino isn’t letting her regular gig on Showtime’s Roadies prevent her from returning. She’ll reprise her role of Kate Hewson for Season 2, albeit in a limited capacity. Find out below who else from the first season booked a return ticket back to Wayward Pines.
In addition to Gugino, Hope Davis, Tom Stevens, Shannyn Sossamon, Toby Jones, Charlie Tahan, Melissa Leo and Terrence Howard have signed on to appear in some sort of capacity. Ummm, didn’t the Empire star die in the third episode last season? I can’t wait to see how writers explain that.
Did you watch Wayward Pines last season? Glad that so many originals are returning? Bummed that Matt Dillon isn’t coming back. Wayward Pines returns to FOX on May 25 at 8pm. Weigh in below.
