Fox has renewed M. Night Shyamalan's psychological thriller "Wayward Pines" for a second season. However, creator and showrunner Chad Hodge is no longer attached to the series.
Based on Blake Crouch's bestselling novels, the first season starred Matt Dillon as a Secret Service agent investigating the disappearance of two fellow agents in Idaho. Following a car accident, he awakens in Wayward Pines, where he discovers one agent dead, the other settled into a new life in the mysterious town. What's more, none of the inhabitants are permitted to leave and must abide by strict rules enforced by the sheriff.
The second season picks up in the wake of Season 1, with a new arrival in Wayward Pines caught in the middle of a rebellion as the residents battle over how to preserve the endangered human race.
"Wayward Pines" will return with a 10-episode second season in summer 2016.
