Critic Consensus: Wayward Pines drifts away from the intrigue and mystery established during its debut season, slipping into a dull, repetitive, and trite narrative.

Tv Season Info

Shortly after the horrific Abby attack, Wayward Pines is no longer the idyllic town it once was. The First Generation kids have taken control and the residents are rebelling against them. Season 2 of this psychological thriller brings a new resident to the town, a confident surgeon named Dr. Theo Yedlin (Jason Patric). After awakening from suspended animation, Dr. Yedlin gets caught in the middle of the rebellion and must help save the human race—all while trying to figure out what Wayward Pines is exactly. Djimon Hounsou, who plays CJ Mitchum, the town's historian and only link to the knowledge of the previous world, joins returning cast members Hope Davis, Shannyn Sossamon and Tom Stevens.

Critic Reviews for Wayward Pines Season 2

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (7)

The second season is more a matter of life or death as the stakes grow higher and the original intrigue becomes less important.

Season 1 was, at best, a guilty pleasure with a weak ending. Now, you almost feel bad for the series in its second season, limping along, trying to rebuild from what little was left.

I was willing to give Wayward Pines a chance to justify a second season. It simply doesn't do so.

Wayward Pines may not be the most unique show on television, but it can be a fun way to spend an hour when the series isn't taking itself too seriously.

While the new main character Theo isn't that interesting, the trajectory of the characters we know and where the story is headed certainly are.

The world left behind is still uniquely appealing and ambitiously high concept: a small town held captive by sinister, self-righteous, fascist teens called the First Generation and encircled by a goblin-infested hellscape? Yes, sign me up please.

Instead of a weird mystery tension... it's quite dull and repetitive.

The series launches right into its new direction with confidence, but it's an awfully somber tone being set.

This may as well be a CW show like The 100 because the show is now only about trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world where there are things and people always trying to kill you.

A second-season seemed like a good idea. But, like Showtime's The Affair, Wayward - based on the novels by Blake Crouch - was meant to be one-season show.

Audience Reviews for Wayward Pines: Season 2

It lost the mystery but it was still quite a fun tale of survival, even if all the first generations were killed off...
