The Season 2 finale of FOX’s “Wayward Pines“ aired way back in July of 2016; yet, the series still has not been officially canceled in all of that time.
In fact, back in August, Fox president David Madden even went so far as to say, “M. Night [Shyamalan] has talked to both [Fox CEO] Dana [Walden] and me recently about the possibilities of what a third season could be. So we’re going to be sitting down with him [to discuss] his thoughts and potential story ideas, casting ideas. So we haven’t made any kind of decision yet, but we are talking about it.”
Well, I guess all the waiting and whatnot didn’t add up to much as TVLine reports FOX has officially canceled “Wayward Pines” after two seasons.
I guess I’m pretty sad to see the series go. I watched the entire first season and (mostly) enjoyed it. I never watched the second season but plan to someday just to wrap it all up.
Did you watch the series? Are you sad to see it go? Let us know below!
From executive producer M.

The series was executive-produced by Donald De Line (Green Lantern, The Italian Job), Ashwin Rajan (Devil, The Visit), Blake Crouch, and M. Night Shyamalan. Mark Friedman (“Believe,” “The Forgotten”) also served as executive producer and showrunner.
Executive producer M. Night Shyamalan brings Blake Crouch’s best-selling trilogy of novels, “Pines,” to life in this psychological, mind-bending thriller about a mysterious small town in Idaho called Wayward Pines.
