There's nothing better than finding something new on TV that you absolutely love, and The Wilds on Amazon Prime was exactly that. A bit like Pretty Little Liars meets The Society, the 10-part series followed the complicated lives of a group of high school students who get stranded on an island following a plane crash. We LOVED it.

The good news is it's officially back for a second series, after Amazon renewed the show in late 2020. Here's what we know about the follow up so far:

When was The Wilds season 2 announced?

The news was shared via Instagram on 19th December, with various cast members appearing in a video that teases: "Should we tell them? I don't know if they're ready... Haven't you heard the news? I think we should tell them. You sure? Together? Ok... Three, two one.. We're headed back for Season Two."


What will happen in The Wilds season 2?

The synopsis for series 1 read: "A group of teen girls from different backgrounds must fight for survival after a plane crash strands them on a deserted island. 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."

*Spoilers* At the end of season 1, Leah discovers the 'Dawn of Eden' girls aren't the only "stranded" teens being watched, escaping her room to discover a surveillance area with screens showing a group of boys. A file on the desk reads 'The Twilight of Adam'. OMG. That's got to take centre stage next season, right?

Fans are also desperate to know what happened to Nora (is she alive?), how Rachel's hand has healed, and the fate of Martha. Hmm..

Who will star in The Wilds season 2

Judging by the announcement for the second season, we can expect Sarah Pidgeon (Leah), Sophia Ali (Fatin), Jenna Clause (Martha), Reign Edwards (Rachel), Mia Healey (Shelby), Shannon Berry (Dot), Helena Howard (Nora) and Erana James (Toni) to all return in season 2.

Plus, there's likely to be some new characters, if 'The Twilight of Adam' group play a larger role in the follow up season.

When will The Wilds season 2 drop?

The Wilds season 1 was released at the beginning of December 2020, having filmed in locations across New Zealand a year earlier in October 2019. Despite the announcement of season 2, it's hard to know when they'll be able to film due to coronavirus restrictions. Fingers crossed for an early 2022 release date? Agh.
