Fox stumbled upon a somewhat surprising hit last summer when it unleashed Wayward Pines on audiences, and even though it looked like the show was headed in a new direction for Season 2 with new cast members, many from Season 1 are returning.
While TV ratings and word of mouth may not be enough to physically move mountains, they can definitely help to shift the TV landscape around. That’s basically what happened with Fox’s wacky mystery Wayward Pines, which is getting a Season 2.
Wayward Pines, executive producer M. Night Shyamalan explained that he likes that Season 1 gave audiences a clear-cut ending, also noting that he and the author of the novels Wayward Pines is based on, Blake Crouch, do have an idea for a second season.
After the last episode of the increasingly enjoyable Wayward Pines blew our minds with one of the biggest shocks in recent TV memory, it’s only right that the series should spend most of an episode delving into what all these new changes mean. Spoilers abound.
We've culled through the summer premiere schedule to bring you the best of the best. After a lot of careful thought, some rowdy debates and plenty of passionate speeches, we’ve put together a list of the 5 shows you have to be watching this summer.
For the past four episodes, we’ve watched and sympathized with Matt Dillon’s Special Agent Ethan Burke, who clearly had no idea what the hell was up with this oddball town where escaping is against “the rules.” And tonight's episode changed everything.
People who love weird things are the ideal audience for Fox’s upcoming mystery drama Wayward Pines, a psychologically tumultuous conspiracy-ish thriller set in the craziest small town this side of Twin Peaks.
Fox is getting ready to serve up some damn fine coffee, er, some rum raisin ice cream cones with its new oddball mystery thriller Wayward Pines, which dropped a strange new trailer that bears more than a passing resemblance to Twin Peaks.
You may think your town is weird, but it has absolutely nothing on Fox’s upcoming mystery drama event series Wayward Pines, which also happens to have 100% more Matt Dillon than wherever you live.
As a horror fan, I consider myself spoiled by the wealth of television series that are giving the genre its due attention. Two of the most intriguing upcoming projects are Showtime’s literary mash-up Penny Dreadful and Fox’s small town thrillerWayward Pines, created by M. Night Shyamalan and Chad Hodge. Intriguing doesn’t necessarily mean good, mind you, but there’s certainly less clear expectations going into these series than those that came attached to Hannibal and Dracula.
M. Night Shyamalan might be a little bit of a joke in the theatrical world, but a lot of high end actors and actresses have signed on for Wayward Pines, an event series headed to Fox. Recently, Natural Born Killers and The Other Sister actress Juliette Lewis joined the cast of the event series, which will be similar to a miniseries but will run for a little longer on the network, airing 10 full episodes to tell its story.
For an actor who's in demand, there's probably a benefit to limited series as opposed to a TV pilot in the running to go to series, as the actor can take a major role without having to make a long-term commitment that might limit their availability for other projects. That may have been the draw for Carla Gugino when she signed on for USA's Political Animals, which aired last year, and who is now on board to star in M. Night Shyamalan's limited series Wayward Pines for Fox.
An actress as talented as Melissa Leo can't be confined to just one medium or genre. Her recent credits include thrillers Oblivion and Olympus Has Fallen, not to mention, The Fighter, which won her an Oscar. While on the small screen, she was tackling drama with HBO's Treme and Mildred Pierce and comedy with a small but memorable role in FX's Louie. She has a number of feature roles coming up, but it looks like the Oscar winner also set to return to television as she's been cast in one of Fox's "event series," Wayward Pines.
Fox announced their 2013-2014 lineup this morning, along with the planned schedule, which sets up new comedies on Tuesday nights and adds a number of other new series to the schedule, along with the returning shows. Among the new series is J.J. Abrams' sci-fi cop series Almost Human, Seth MacFarlane's new live-action comedy Dads and new animated comedy Murder Police.
As much as we love shows that go on for seasons, there's really something to be said for those miniseries or - as Fox puts it in a recent announcement - "long form event series" that tell a story and conclude over the stretch of a season. Fox's announcement about two projects indicates that, at the very least, they're looking to explore this type of story-telling.
