The Wilds on Amazon Prime Video won’t be renewed for a third season. Only a few days after Season 2 of the Teen survival drama’s premiere on May 6, the cast and crew were informed of the decision.
The Wilds was a significant series for Prime Video and Amazon Studios. It was one of the final programs created and produced by the late Jamie Tarses. It was a part of the very first batch of YA pilots that Amazon Studios bought as part of an expansion in that genre shortly after Jennifer Salke became leader. The YA series was the first to debut on Amazon Video and the first to receive a second season.
When it debuted on December 11, 2020, The Wilds attracted a lot of attention and received a quick renewal. Since the adolescent drama’s comeback in May, reactions have been more restrained.
Shannon Berry, who plays Dottie, later confirmed the news and shared her sadness on her Instagram Stories, saying simply: “Thank you Dottie for being the most amazing part of these past 4 years. I will miss this unsinkable forever.”
Mia Healy, who plays Shelby, also paid tribute to her character and shared behind-the-scenes pics on Instagram, saying: “I love you all, I love you, Shelby. I am forever changed & eternally grateful. Thank you thank you thank you.”
The Wilds season 3 cast
The whole group of surviving teens would have made a comeback if the show had continued.
It would have been Sophia Ali, Shannon Berry, Jenna Clause, Reign Edwards, Mia Healey, Erana James, and Sarah Pidgeon from the female group.
Charles Alexander, Zack Calderon, Nicholas Coombe, Miles Gutierrez-Riley, Aidan Laprete, Tanner Ray Rook, and Reed Shannon would have been among the lads who had returned.
Alex Fitzalan and Helena Howard would still have been part of The Wilds cast for season three as Seth and Nora were probably returning as well.
The Wilds season 3 plot: What possibly could have happened?
The Wilds finished on a cliffhanger that we will never be able to resolve, which is one of the most agonizing ways for a canceled program to end.
It was evident the crew had ideas in mind for season three of The Wilds when both sets of adolescents were left to learn a fresh reality about the island at the end of season two.
In a May 2022 interview with TVLine, executive producer Amy B Harris foreshadowed what was to come next for both organizations.
“I’m very excited to see how these two groups, who have really coalesced in a very strong way, protecting one another, taking care of one another, fighting with one another, how when these two groups kind of smash together, the chemistry and the explosions that will possibly come from that are very exciting,” she explained.
“Sarah [Streicher] and I both really love those scenes where it’s two people talking, and you’re shocked to see those two people having a relationship.
“And now we have 14 people to do that with, so it’s like ping-ponging, careening balls knocking against each other. We just get to explore the character in such really deep, specific ways, and it’s exciting.”
In an interview with People Magazine, Sophia Ali (Fatin), who similarly expressed disbelief at the outcome while acknowledging she was unsure of how it will affect the group moving ahead, said: “I want to see everyone progress farther than what they already have.
“I feel like coming back together and making it more normal to society is almost going to reverse everyone for a second. They’re all going to go back to who they used to be and not really know how to act with survival at the forefront in that environment with men around.”
She will unfortunately never fully know, just like the audience.
The Wilds season 3 trailer
Sorry folks, but we won’t ever truly know what happened to the survivors if there isn’t a renewal.
Prior to the show’s termination, Prime Video did, however, release a cute bloopers clip showcasing the antics the cast got up to on set. Look at what happened there and assume that everyone had a good ending there.
The Wilds season 1 and 2 are available to watch on Prime Video.
