Wayward Pines Season 3 remains stuck somewhere else as the renewal is still under discussion. However, the good news is that Fox CEO Dana Walden admits that there is a hope for a third season.
In Walden’s interview with Slash Film, she revealed that there could still be a third installment for Wayward Pines. The story is still there, and the ideas keep pouring out.
“I definitely think there could be a season three,” Walden said before adding, “It struggled. Most shows struggle year to year.”
Moreover, Walden said that M. Night Shyamalan and Chad Hodge have compelling ideas for Wayward Pines Season 3. He added that they are “definitely talking about the show right now” and that the remaining cast in the finale will still be in the third season.
Wayward Pines Viewership Record
It is not surprising at all that network channels have been canceling shows in the past few months. This is either due to low viewership ratings or because of bad reviews. Hearing the cancelation of a certain show, especially if it has a potential to be a hit, is a big bang to the production heads, just like what happened to Wayward Pines Season 3.
According to reports, the series did not start with a hit, unlike other shows. However, the thing is that though Season 1 received a fair rate from its supporters, the series’ viewership eventually progressed.
It is said that Wayward Pines Season 1 gained a number of 3.8 million viewers. As a result, the show became “the number one scripted show of the summer.” However, the sad part is that Wayward Pines Season 2 unexpectedly declined in ratings. The sequel failed to charm the viewers and eventually sink.
The sequel only gained 2.4 million viewers, far from its previous record. The good news, however, is that the last part of the second season was able to get 3.5 million viewers.
Now fans are still wondering what Fox’s next move would be. Will they renew the series or not? Wayward Pines Season 2 last aired on July 27, 2016, Wednesday.
