Only a handful of new shows in 2020 lived up to their names like Prime Video’s breathtakingly far-out, young-adult series The Wilds, which follows a group of teenage girls who find themselves stuck on a remote, isolated island after their plane crashes.
Season 1’s hilarious and addictive ten episodes turned out to be so much more than a hallucinogenic mashup of Lost and Mean Girl—and speaking of “so much more,” Season 2 is arriving shortly!
Season 1’s dramatic finale left fans stunned and clamoring for answers. Season 2 of The Wilds is finally here, and we’ve got the premiere date and everything else you need to know.
The Wilds Season 2 Release Date
An announcement that Season 2 would be released on Friday, May 2, 2022, was made public on the show’s official social media accounts around the end of February 2022.
In December 2020, The Wilds was officially renewed for Season 2.
Showrunner Amy B. Harris told Variety that her writers’ room already had a “very strong blueprint” for Season 2, even before the renewal was announced.
As for the possibility of a second season being ordered, she stated that Amazon had asked her, “What’s the hook for the next season?” You can understand why a second control group was introduced at the end of Season 1 if you’ve already seen it.
Is The Wilds Inspired by Lost?
As previously reported, Harris has stated that The Wilds is influenced by not only Lost but also Cast Away and My So-Called Life.
Where Does The Wilds Season 1 Conclude?
For those who haven’t yet watched the conclusion, we promise that it will shock and awe you, but we won’t provide too many spoilers here.
In the meantime, if you’d like a recap:
On the island, Leah has figured out who the second infiltrator is. Furthermore, it isn’t the person we were expecting to see. A camera room showing the second control group, which consists entirely of young males, is then revealed to Leah as she emerges from her quarantine chamber.
What Can We Expect to See in Season 2 of The Wilds?
According to information received in May 2021, this is how Season 2’s plot was described: Eight teenage girls are stuck on a lonely island for unknown reasons in Season 2 of the show “The Wilds.”
A fresh group of survivors, all of whom are males, will be the focus of the upcoming season. They’ll both have to overcome emotional and physical difficulties as a result of their traumatic situations.”
Harris said, “a lot of very strong ideas about where the show [is] going to go next,” but adds that the show’s creative team is “willing and open, once we start building the next portions of the house, to see different things come together.” As for what might even happen past Season 2, Streicher adds, “We do have vignette ideas where each girl will land at the end of this.”
The Wilds Season 2 Cast
The Wilds Season 2 will have a fresh cast of performers thanks to the new control group. Charles Alexander, Zack Calderon, Nicholas Coombe, Alex Fitzalan, Miles Gutierrez-Riley, Aidan Laprete, Tanner Ray Rook, and Reed Shannon are among the male up-and-comers joining the cast for Season 2.
A creative approach was developed to unveil the new cast members back in May 2021, when Prime Video shared a video of series star Sophia Ali adding all eight actors to a “The Wilds fam” text thread.
Are The Wilds available on Amazon Prime?
Season 1 of The Wilds is now streaming on Amazon Prime, whereas Season 2 will also premiere in the near future.
