Wayward Pines

Here are just some of the reasons FOX's new series Wayward Pines has us excited.

This May, FOX is bringing us crazy entertainment with Wayward Pines on Thursday 14 May.

Now I know you’re just as excited as I am but I thought I’d highlight even more reasons to be excited for Thursdays premiere of Wayward Pines!

Super cool story line
Agent Ethan wakes up from a car crash after he went in search of two missing agents. He soon realises things are eerily not okay, he can’t seem to get out this town and the people are spine-chillingly strange. 

Awesome executive producer
M. Night Shyamalan was involved in The Sixth Sense and The Village before taking the novel Pines by Blake Crouch and adapting it into the Wayward Pines we’ll see on our screens! Oh the excitement!

Matt Dillion
This is Matt’s first series and we cannot wait to see what he has in store for us as Agent Ethan Burke in this gripping thriller.

Sweet cast
Other than Matt, the cast boasts some awesome familiar faces like Carla Gugino (Night at the Museum and Sin City) as Secret Service Agent Kate Hewson, Terrence Howard (Empire and The Best Man Holiday) as Sheriff Pope, Melissa Leo (Mildred Pierce, Oblivion) as nurse Pam, and Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County and Due Date) as Beverley.

This alone is a reason for excitement if you, like me, absolutely adore the good mind-explosion of a well thought-out thriller.

Global release
The global debut is 14 May on FOX at 21:00, and the show will premiere the same day as America – you know what that means! You can join in all the social media hysteria because there are no worldly spoilers for you to hide from. It’s okay, you can do your happy dance now.

Sit back and get comfortable this May with FOX (DStv Channel 125) and Wayward Pines. Catch the premiere this Thursday at 21:00 CAT.

While Wayward Pines dominates your Thursdays, be sure to catch Tyrant starting on Wednesday 20 May at 19:00 CAT on FOX for some more epic entertainment.
