'The Wilds' Season 2: 5 things you need to know about the Amazon Prime drama
Season 2 of 'The Wilds' is nearly here, and if the trailer is any indication, the drama that unfurled over the show's binge-worthy first chapter "is only the beginning." There's nothing like discovering something new on TV that you love, and Prime Video's 'The Wilds' did just that.
The 10-part series is about a group of unrelated adolescent girls who all sign up for a young women's empowerment retreat. When the plane that was intended to take them to Hawaii crashes into the water, their wellness trip quickly turns into a nightmare – and we find that they're being forced to participate in a hazardous social experiment. It was gruesome set in different timeframes. The good news is that the show has been renewed for a second season after Amazon renewed it in late 2020. 'The Wilds' Season 2 is slated to debut on the all-boys island, following on from the Season 1 conclusion, as the youths continue to struggle for survival. We'll probably witness the lucky ones who made it struggle to flee the "rescue" facility in flashbacks. While you wait for the series to premiere, you can watch other popular shows on the platform such as 'Roadkill,' 'Harlem' and 'The Romanoffs.'
When will 'The Wilds' Season 2 release and where can you watch it?
The release date for Season 2 of The Wilds has been confirmed for May 6, 2022. Season 1's 10 episodes were posted on Amazon Prime Video on December 11, 2020, therefore it's probable that Season 2 will follow suit and broadcast each episode in its entirety.
What is 'The Wilds' Season 2 all about?
Rachel appears to be grappling with guilt over her sister's presumed death, as well as coming to terms with losing her arm in the shark attack, as seen in the trailer, while some lads battle one another and strive to prove themselves by claiming command. There will also be a lot of topless rites around the campfire. You know, typical stranded-on-a-distant-island fare. Toni and Shelby's covert affair is expected to cause difficulties within the group, as some of them begin to be concerned about deeper allegiances being formed within the camp. "Have you noticed any new vibes, between some people here?" a worried Martha asks Fatin after spotting Toni and Shelby kissing in the trees in the trailer.
However, it is not all drama and sometimes life-threatening circumstances. One scene in the trailer shows the girls throwing a beach birthday celebration, while another shows Fatin, who used to exclusively look out for herself before the aircraft disaster, wondering, "What's wrong with me?"
In the trailer, when some island girls establish contact with the island guys, Leah emerges in a flash forward to introduce herself to one of the male test subjects in their "rescue" unit. Only time will tell if the teams will battle or band together to bring down Gretchen Klein, the cruel lady in charge of monitoring the 'Dawn of Eve and Twilight of Adam' trials.
Who stars in 'The Wilds' Season 2?
Sarah Pidgeon, Erana James, Mia Healey, Shannon Berry, Jenna Clause, Reign Edwards, and Sophia Ali will all reprise their roles as Leah, Toni, Shelby, Dot, Martha, Rachel, and Fatin respectively. Rachel Griffiths is also reprising her role as Gretchen Klein, the puppet master.
Every actress dreams of the day when they will be given the chance that would revolutionize their career, and for Sarah Pidgeon, that day arrived far sooner than she could have dreamed. Sarah has found herself on the verge of success just two years after making her television debut. She achieved international acclaim for her performance in the 2020 Prime series 'The Wilds.' Her depiction of Leah Rilke has provided her the opportunity to showcase her acting abilities, and many people are pleased. Sarah does not have the most extensive résumé in the industry. In reality, aside from 'The Wilds,' she now has only two additional TV credits. But, at the same time, her work thus far has been outstanding. She had a cameo appearance on the popular TV show 'Gotham' in 2019.
Nora, played by Helena Howard, was killed in 'The Wilds' Season 1 finale while attempting to save Rachel, her twin sister, from a shark, but due to the show's various timelines, she will very certainly appear in Season 2. The trailer does not indicate her reappearance, with no peeks of any pre-plane accident recollections. But, given that the character was shown to be working with Gretchen after Season 1, we wouldn't be shocked if there's more to the story.
There are the new all-boys bunch of surviving victims, which means that The Wilds season 2 will feature a slew of new cast members. 'The Wilds' issued 15 character posters earlier this month, highlighting each of the hesitant islanders. Henry Tanaka will be played by Aidan Laprete, while Josh Herbert will be played by Nicholas Coombe. Zack Calderon, who plays Rafael Garcia, is one of the newcomers. The cast also includes Alex Fitzalan (Seth Novak), Tanner Ray Rook (Bo Leonard), Reed Shannon (Scotty Simms), Miles Gutierrez-Riley (as Ivan Taylor), and Charles Alexander (as Kirin O'Conner).
Who are the showrunners?
Sarah Streicher created and executive produced 'The Wilds,' together with executive producer and showrunner Amy Harris.
