Recent “Wayward Pines” news revealed that the series will last only up to three seasons maximum. Executive producer M. Night Shyamalan provided some details about his recent declaration.

Spoiler alert! This article contains “Wayward Pines" spoilers. Read on if you would like to know what happens next before the new episode airs.

Originally, “Wayward Pines” was supposed to end after only one season. The writers and producers initially intended Season One to be the first and only, containing the beginning, middle and end, based on the books by Blake Crouch. However, fans of the show clamored for a continuation, which eventually prompted the showrunners to oblige. Both Season 1 and Season 2 will consist of 10 episodes each.

SlashFilm reports that during a Wondercon roundtable for “Wayward Pines” Season 2, Shyamalan announced that the series will last three seasons at most.

“I think we can say it’s a three-season story. If we get the opportunity to tell the third and final season, we can finish the story,” Shyamalan said in a report by AVClub.

According to Shyamalan, Season 2 will continue to develop what viewers saw in the first season. Fans previously found the Abbies outside the fence of Wayward Pines and the abominations will continue to threaten the people of the town in the next story.

Shyamalan revealed that the plot may extend further outside the fence in some way. The second season will show more about the Abbies. Although viewers may have some ideas on what an Abby is, they may be wrong. There should be a number of twists, particularly on the Abbies that may put the human race into extinction.

Previously, Matt Dillon played the starring role and sacrificed himself for the people of the town. Now, the First Generation has taken over and the new main protagonist, a surgeon played by Jason Patric, will find himself in the middle of a brewing rebellion. Although it is highly recommended that viewers see all 10 episodes of the first season before the launch of “Wayward Pines” Season 2, Jason’s character is a neophyte, so viewers will not entirely be lost even if they missed all or some of the first season.

Wayward Pines” Season 2 will premiere on May 25, 2016 on FOX in the US and on FX in Australia. More updates and details are expected soon.
