There are rumours that “Wayward Pines” is coming back for a second season. Although Fox has yet to make an official announcement, producer M. Night Shyamalan said that he may have a good twist that will renew fans’ interest on the show. There are also talks that the story might reveal mythological references.

“Perhaps for us it’s another miniseries event if [author] Blake [Crouch] is prepare to lay that mythology into the further book series,” said Dana Walden, Fox Entertainment Group CEO, in a report by Community Voices.

Walden added that they have just begun discussions about the next season of “Wayward Pines” and they are pleased with how the TV show performed in season one. They are also interested in hearing new ideas and concepts. Reportedly, Shyamalan and Crouch are working together to come up with a plot that will keep a high level of integrity.

Shannyn Sossamon spoke to Nylon Magazine about returning for “Wayward Pines” Season 2. The actress said that she was completely unprepared for the next season and somehow did not even want it. She said that it is a privilege and a great job, so she is not complaining. She said that she has a dominant personality and would prefer to have more base and understand her current situation and where she wants to be. Sossamon said that she is open to more possibilities.

Although the storyline for “Wayward Pines” Season 2 is not yet certain, fans already have speculations on how the plot would unfold. In Season 1 Episode 6, Ethan (Matt Dillon) finally discovered the truth about Wayward Pines and the date. He realised that the year was 4028 and that people were all put in cryochambers for 2000 years because genetically mutated human carnivores, called “aberrations” or “abbies,” have dominated the world. Some fans believe that the next season might show that they are not the only survivors and that there is another village that is also doing its best to stay safe against the abbies. Crossmap writes that another theory involves finding a cure for the abbies instead of trying to escape the village.

More updates and the planned launch date for “Wayward Pines” Season 2 are expected soon.
