Star World Premiere HD to bring back S2 of Wayward Pines

MUMBAI: Star World Premiere HD is bringing back the the second season of Wayward Pines from May 27 onwards, 10 pm every Friday

Wayward Pines is an adaptation of the Wayward Pines novels by eminent sci-fi and mystery author Blake Crouch. The show in its first season managed to serenade sci-fi fans with impeccable direction by M Night Shyamalan and a stellar star cast that included Oscar and Golden Globe nominee Matt Dillon who starred in wildly successful ventures like There’s Something About Mary (1998), Crash (2004), Factotum (2005), You, Me and Dupree (2006), Nothing but the Truth (2008).

The second season haswith stars like two time Academy Award nominee Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond), Jason Patric (Speed,My Sister’s Keeper) and  BAFTA nominated Nimrat Kaur ( Airlift, Lunch Box) joining the ranks. The upcoming season is set to be a glitzy affair.

Wayward Pines season one traced the adventures of Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon), a U.S. Secret Service agent, who was investigating the mystery of the disappearance of his two colleagues. As his search leads him to the quaint little town of Wayward Pines, he awakens from a car accident only to find out that one of his colleagues is dead, the other, his former beau Kate Hewson (Carla Gugino) is living a rustic life in the town and all is not as it seems in the mysterious town. The town has sinister secrets and there seems to be something nefarious brewing just under the surface.

While the first season ended at crossroads, with a civil war at the horizon where do the new characters fit in? It is well-known that the town of Wayward Pines exists in a post-apocalyptic future 2000 years from now, it is populated by folks who have been kept in suspended animation all that time and thawed out as required. So when the brilliant but eccentric doctor Theo Yedlin (Jason Patrick) wakes up groggily thinking it was only the previous night that his marriage with wife Rebecca (Nimrat Kaur) was falling apart at a holiday resort in Hawaii, he is quick to realize that something is rotten in Wayward Pines. As Yedlin replaces the town’s recently deceased physician, he begins navigating his baffling new surroundings.

Meanwhile, Rebecca Yedlin (Nimrat Kaur), Theo’s wife and a former architect has already begun her work as the town’s beautician in the three years she’s been awake before her husband’s emergence.

Speaking of his role, Jason Patric said, “I did not watch the previous season because one of the things about my character, Theo Yedlin, who is a surgeon, is that he has been dropped right in the middle of it all so his reactions need to be as pure as possible.I don't have any definitive ideas about who he is or where he's going, but I think that was one of the interesting things about choosing to do this project.”

Nimrat Kaur also spoke about her role on the show, “I play the role of Rebecca, an architect who has designed the town of Wayward Pines. I am not one of the characters who wakes up unaware of what the place is like. Rebecca is someone who has a very complicated and intriguing journey on the show; she wakes up in Wayward Pines and copes up with her life there and struggles with her relationship with her husband while trying to find the perfect balance between everything.”

With Theo, Rebecca and a historian (DjimonHounsou) having just come out of the slumber and entered the fold, how do their characters fit in and where does their loyalty lie? Will their entry have a domino effect on the events unfurling in the show? 

The series has been nominated for the prestigious Saturn Awards in numerous categories and holds a rating of 86% on Rotten Tomatoes.
