There have been rumours that Season 2 of “Wayward Pines” will not be airing at all. Although there were news that a new season of the sci-fi thriller will be released, executive producer Chad Hodge shared that it is unlikely to happen.

Fox is reportedly still open to the possibility of producing a second season of “Wayward Pines” if there's more material to work with. Fans are also optimistic that the show's creators would come up with a second season for the series.

An interview with Give Me My Remote reveals that showrunner Chad Hodge said that the chances of a renewal are unlikely because the story already ended the way they wanted and planned it to be. Hodge added that the series was first supposed to be a miniseries, based on the book trilogy written by Blake Crouch. Although the book source was a trilogy, the TV show already included all the aspects. In the end of Season 1, the series' main character, Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon), died while sacrificing himself to save the kids of the First Generation.

Many of the fans, including those who read the books, felt that the final episode was sort of a cliffhanger. Ethan’s son was shown waking up at the end, which led many to believe that he will take on his father’s role, if there will be a next season.

Director M. Night Shyamalan has said before that he was happy with how the show ended. He also revealed that Crouch already had some thoughts on how the story could proceed if Season 2 of “Wayward Pines” was given the approval, Deadline reveals.

"I knew where I wanted to go. I knew I wanted the fences to come down. I knew where we were heading for the finale and so we could architecture the 10-episodes in that manner. So, I am happy to walk away, especially with such a wonderful reaction and all that stuff. But honestly, Blake and I do have an idea," Shyamalan told Deadline.

In the meantime, Dana Walden, CEO of Fox Entertainment Group, states that the network is very open to airing another miniseries if the creators could provide new material. They were pleased with the show's performance and have reportedly just begun discussions on future plans.
