A mystery series that has been mysteriously absent from the airwaves at Fox won’t be coming back. TVLine reports that the network pulled the plug on the supernatural drama “Wayward Pines.”
The M. Night Shyamalan series aired two seasons, in the summer of 2015 and summer 2016, but has been off the air since then.
TVLine notes: “Fox President David Madden declined to throw dirt on the series’ coffin over the summer, saying, ‘M. Night has talked to both [Fox CEO] Dana [Walden] and me recently about the possibilities of what a third season could be. So we’re going to be sitting down with him [to discuss] his thoughts and potential story ideas, casting ideas. So we haven’t made any kind of decision yet, but we are talking about it.’”
Season two reportedly averaged 2.4 million total viewers with a 0.7 average rating in the key demo of adults 18-49 in Live+Same Day ratings, which TVLine notes was down 37% from the show’s freshman season.
