FOX’s mystery television series, “Wayward Pines,” could be coming back for a third season after loads of creepiness from the first two seasons amid reports and rumors that the show has been cancelled. A season 3 renewal would certainly be good news for everyone who still believes that the small fictional town has more eeriness to offer.
In a recent interview via TV Line, Fox Television Group co-chairman and CEO Dana Walden hinted that a third season could be underway.
“I definitely think there could be a season 3,” she said. “[The producers] have a really compelling plan for season 3 that I liked very much. We’re definitely talking about the show right now.”
One of the reasons why the talk of a cancellation surfaced is another show that’s eerily similar to “Wayward Pines.” But unlike it, Netflix’s “Stranger Things” received very positive reviews and feedbacks from viewers and critics alike, while season 2 of “Wayward Pines” didn’t really impress. And while anyone from FOX could have easily pulled the plug, it looks like they’re considering giving it another chance, probably because the writers might have found a way to make the show a lot more interesting, and maybe aggressive something it sorely lacked in both seasons.
There have been speculations as of late claiming that the upcoming season will be focusing more on humans being transformed into intelligent Abbies, which means that these creatures will make life more difficult for the human race. There even is a prospect that humans will eventually have to fight for their survival.
So it will potentially be a case of evolution versus survival two concepts which are supposed to working with each other. But in season 3 of “Wayward Pines,” the evolution of the beasts will more likely bring the end to the humans in the small town.
There’s little hope for an official announcement for season 3 this year, but fans would want FOX to at least confirm that the new season is indeed happening.
