‘The Wilds’ Renewed for Season 2 at Amazon

YA series launched Dec. 11

“The Wilds” has been renewed for Season 2 at Amazon Prime Video, the platform said Saturday.

The YA series, which premiered Dec. 11, is described by the streaming service as “part survival drama, part dystopic slumber party.”

“The Wilds,” Amazon Prime Video’s first real venture into young-adult programming, follows a group of teen girls from different backgrounds who must fight for survival after a plane crash strands them on a deserted island, per Amazon. The castaways both clash and bond as they learn more about each other, the secrets they keep and the traumas they’ve all endured. There’s just one twist to this thrilling drama… these girls did not end up on this island by accident.

There’s no word yet on when Season 2 will go into production or when Amazon expects to launch the episodes.

“The Wilds” stars Sophia Ali as Fatin Jadmani, Shannon Berry as Dot Campbell, Jenna Clause as Martha Blackburn, Reign Edwards as Rachel Reid, Rachel Griffiths as Gretchen Klein, Mia Healey as Shelby Goodkind, Helena Howard as Nora Reid, Erana James as Toni Shalifoe, Sarah Pidgeon as Leah Rilke, David Sullivan as Dr. Daniel Faber and Troy Winbush as FBI Agent Dean Young.

Created by Sarah Streicher (Netflix’s “Daredevil”), “The Wilds” is executive produced by Streicher along with showrunner Amy B. Harris (“Sex and the City,” “The Carrie Diaries”), as well as Jamie Tarses of Fanfare and Dylan Clark of Dylan Clark Productions.

The series is co-produced by Amazon Studios and ABC Signature Studios.

The announcement of “The Wilds’s” Season 2 renewal follows last month’s news that Amazon has canceled its Gillian Flynn-created sci-fi series “Utopia” after one season, which ended on a very big cliffhanger.

Watch “The Wilds” team announce the big second-season news via Instagram Saturday.
