The summer series will return for Season 2.
December 9, 2015
Fox announced today that Wayward Pines has been renewed for a second season. The pickup comes after a strong showing over the summer for the limited series, where it ranked as the #1 broadcast drama among adults 18-49. 10 new episodes of the mystery drama have been ordered for a return in summer 2016.
Originally not planned for more than one season, Wayward Pines worked to fit the entire trilogy of novels from which it was based into its 10-episode run. Season 2 will be picking up after the events of the first season, with a new arrival to the town caught in the middle of a struggle over how to preserve the human race.
Chad Hodge, who originally developed Wayward Pines for television, will not be returning for Season 2. Taking over showrunning duties will be Mark Friedman.

Some TV series should try to tell their story over a set amount of episodes concluding on an understandable meaningful story and ending it as intended. This was one of those series.

Not sure how real this plot is that I read on the net. But it says how the adults are still in a sleeping state and one of them breaks out and tries to over turn the kids who have taken over.
I then read somewhere else about how the kids control the town and the adults are slaves.
More or less I hope it does well.

Batman comics were better than the movies... does that count? I find the comparisons pretty ludicrous. They are two different mediums. And while it's natural for some to TRY and make comparisons, they are really stretching.

We compare the TV series to the books because the books were simply *better* and the TV series got a number of fundamental things wrong. They honestly could have done the first book as the entire first season, and left future seasons to the other two books. The ending of the books and the TV series were *completely* different, and doesn't allow for a lot of growth or introspection. It's probably just going to be a "we're a bunch of underground spies trying to overthrow the people in charge." Boring, we've seen this plot before. If I were the author of the books, I'd be sick to my stomach what the did to my vision.

I had heard Wayward Pines had been cancelled and was sorry. This is the one show I could never wait too watch from DVR I always watched it as soon as it came on. Honestly it is the only show on TV the last couple of years I sat through commercial's to watch.

Mythra - The series Dexter (while not true to the books past most of season 1) was a comparable show. Both the books and the series were excellent. By the way, if anyone liked the series, I highly recommend the Dexter books on CD. The initial reader and the author himself both did fantastic jobs with the readings, and it feels like an extension of the series. I started on the books first, and with reading those and watching the show, I felt like I got 15-20 seasons of Dexter.

I'm surprised and happy to see this get another season. I feel bad for the people who can't just watch and enjoy without comparing it to the book series. When are movies or television series EVER as good as the novels they are based on? Maybe I'm just not as sophisticated of a viewer as some people are.

Like the show, did not read the book so I can not compare the two. Did not like the ending killing of the lead actor. Will watch season two. I think people who read the book were disappointed in the changes made. Please remember to judge the show on it's own not comparing the two together. MKL&ML
