It is being reported that Fox has cancelled Wayward Pines after two seasons. The move is not much of a surprise, as the mystery drama - which would typically air in the summer - hasn't aired in a new episode in 19 months.

From executive producer M. Night Shyamalan, the series was originally planned for just a single season. 10 episodes were produced based on a trilogy of novels by Blake Crouch, which told the story of a Secret Service Agent who ends up stuck in a small Idaho town that ends up being more than what it seems.

After the show's first season ended up ranking as 2015's #1 broadcast drama of the summer among adults 18-49, the network picked it up for another season with a completely original storyline that continued from the events of Season 1. Unfortunately, audiences did not take to the new plot and ratings took a hit during its sophomore run.

While Fox had previously expressed interest in exploring ideas for a possible third season, it appears in all likelihood that Wayward Pines will not return.
