The female-driven mystery series “The Wilds” has been on Amazon Prime for nearly a year, and the plot has yet to be fully revealed. It follows a group of eight adolescent girls who become stuck on an island after their plane crashes in the Pacific Ocean on their way to Hawaii for a women’s empowerment program called Dawn of Eve. The narrative then jumps between several individuals and periods of time, describing each girl’s sufferings before, during, and after their rescue from the island. As the story progresses, we realize that the Dawn of Eve program is more than meets the eye, having staged the crash as part of a larger sociological experiment.
The show’s first season was a huge hit. “The Wilds: Season 1” has an audience rating of 83 percent and an aggregated review score of 92 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Amazon quickly renewed it for a second season due to the great feedback. Since then, though, fans haven’t heard anything about Season 2 of “The Wilds.” Until now, that is.
The Wilds Season 2 – Official Trailer
On February 22, the official account of “The Wilds” shared the first peek at the upcoming season as well as a long-awaited release date on Instagram. Here’s all we know about the forthcoming second season of the show so far.
When will The Wilds Season 2 be available?
While production on Season 2 of “the Wilds” did not start right away due to delays caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, it wasn’t long before Amazon and the cast was back in the saddle. The official “The Wilds” Twitter feed announced the show’s planned comeback in April 2021 with a video of several cast and crew members on set. This time, however, things are a little different.
The show is being filmed in a new location in addition to a new season. According to Variety, the series was shot in Queensland, Australia, rather than New Zealand. This decision was made in part to secure increased federal financing from Australia, which required Amazon and ABC Signature to hire significantly more Australian personnel.
Despite these advances, the exact date of Season 2’s release remained unknown. This query was fortunately answered by a recent Instagram post. Season 2 of “The Wilds” will now debut on Amazon Prime on May 6, 2022.
Who is set to star in Season 2 of The Wilds?
One thing is certain: Season 2 of “The Wilds” will follow in the footsteps of Season 1, with a few additions. Season 2 will undoubtedly feature the same core group of females from the first season. As a result, Fatin Jadmani (Sofia Ali), Martha Blackburn (Jenna Clause), Rachel Reid (Reign Edwards), Dot Campbell (Shannon Berry), Nora Reid (Helena Howard), Shelby Goodkind (Mia Healy), Toni Shalifoe (Erana James), and Leah Rilke (Sarah Pidgeon) are all poised to reprise their roles.
Gretchen Klein (Rachel Griffiths), the potentially malicious head of the Dawn of Eve program, as well as Dean Young (Troy Winbush) and FBI trauma psychologist Daniel Faber, will also return (David Sullivan).
Fans will also learn more about the Twilight of Adam, the Dawn of Eve’s opposite male counterpart. Their presence was confirmed near the close of the first season, but fans haven’t seen much of them thus far. Rafael Garcia (Zack Calderon), Henry Tanaka (Aiden Laprete), Josh Herbert (Nicholas Coome), Kirrin O’Conner (Charles Alexander), Ivan Taylor (Miles Gutierrez-Riley), Scotty Simms (Reed Shannon), Bo Leonard (Tanner Ray Rook), and Seth Novak (Tanner Ray Rook) are the eight adolescent boys, according to Deadline (Alex Fitzalan).
What does The Wilds Season 2 trailer reveal?
Season 2 will likely dive deeper into the mysteries surrounding Dawn of Eve and Twilight of Adam, according to fans. The show has yet to reveal many facts regarding both studies. Nora, who knows about the experiment and abandoned Leah in a pit after being discovered, will figure prominently in many of these hidden discoveries. She’s also met Gretchen, and she’s starting to learn about her past, in the hopes of uncovering the strange woman’s motives. Leah was able to get out of the pit, but she has yet to tell the other castaways the truth.
Unfortunately, the Instagram clip does not provide much new information. While it’s obvious that we’ll start viewing events through the eyes of the male group, what exactly happens on their end remains a mystery. Then there’s the issue of whether Dawn of Eve and Twilight of Adam is even finished. Those who interviewed the girls following their Dawn of Eve rescue operation were revealed at the end of Season 1.
Furthermore, the show has repeatedly hinted that something has happened to Rachel and Martha, despite the fact that they are never seen in the flashbacks. When Season 2 of “The Wilds” premieres on May 6, we’ll hopefully learn more about what happened on that island, as well as the Twilight of Adam experiment.
