Has The Wilds been renewed for Season 3? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

The Wilds is a teen-driven desert island survival thriller. There are a whole smattering characters, twists, turns and surprises, culminating in a dramatic finale.

Given the way this second season ends, you may be wondering if this one’s been renewed or cancelled.


What is The Wilds Season 2 about?

The second season of The Wilds shifts the focus across to the other island we learned about during the season 1 finale. The girls are not alone. Here, we learn more about the boys and their plight. The season flits back and forth between the two groups as we see how they survive their ordeals.

We have extensive coverage on The Wilds Season 2 across the site, including ongoing recaps for all 8 episodes. Feel free to check them out HERE!


Has The Wilds been renewed for season 3?

At the time of writing, Amazon have not renewed The Wilds for season 3. Given the respectable ratings over the weeks, and the mystery that grips this series, it’s perhaps surprising to see Amazon give it the chop.

Amazon have a pretty good track record with renewing their shows but 2022 has not been a good year for the steamer. After spending record amounts of money on Rings of prime, they’ve been on a bit of a cancellation spree. According to Deadline, The Wilds has been officially cancelled and axed at Amazon Prime.


Why was The Wilds cancelled?

Although an exact reason hasn’t been given, according to the folks over at Deadline, it would seem that reaction to season 2 was more “subdued” compared to the first season. However, when you look at the show itself there could be signs that this venture was running out of steam.

Season 2 essentially doubled the cast list, recycling the same plot but with double the number of characters. Perhaps Amazon saw it as more feasible to axe the show than pay out so much in wages for the cast. Not only that but filming on location at such a gorgeous paradise may not have been cheap either. But again, for a studio happy to throw away millions on a Lord of the Rings project garnering a lot of heat and hate online, it’s a little perplexing that this show would get the chop.

Unless another studio picks this up, it seems this is the end of the road for the girls and boys in The Wilds.

  1. yes, can’t leave the audience hanging. at least wrap it up. lots of story to tell.
    binged watched season1 and loved season2

  2. Well, if not another season then at least a few more episodes. We need to see their reactions to learning that Jennette was a plant, and Nora was in on it all and didn’t die. Those two loose ends need to be wrapped up. It would also be nice to see the parents reactions to being duped into sending their kids off to be lab rats….and the reactions of the teens when they finally connect all the dots.

  3. The writers promised a 4? season arc. It looks like the two groups are trapped together to fend for themselves. The party is just getting started. Give the fans at least season 3! There’s a lot of storyline to cover.

  4. It’s a must love the show
    Please make series 3
    Can’t leave series 2 hanging at the end like that
    Would like to see them all together and there families reactions

  5. As a father of four and grandfather of five, I would be interested in learning how the parents/primary caregivers react to the changes these kids go through. I want to know how the kids are different from where they began once they are back in the real world they left. And, I would like to see the adult’s reactions to these changes. Personally, for example, I would love to see Shelby accept her sexual orientation and stand up to her father. And, how does he react to that?

  6. I am totally invested and need a season 3! I have so many questions and want to know how this ends, so please don’t leave us hanging. Renew, renew, renew!

  7. One of the best series I’ve watched
    !!!! Please do at least another season! 👍 definitely a very strong thumbs up!

  8. Yes I’d like to see a season 3 of The Wilds. Im very interested to see what the groups have to go through next. I hope its renewed because it seems everytime I love a shoe it gets cancelled..

  9. Not fair!!! Another show ending in suspense. We need to have this series wrapped up, Awesome show

  10. I have the hardest time finding a show that holds my interest but this one has, please please please make more. I think I’d like 4 or more seasons

  11. Considering that this is the first time I have ever binge watched any show, I would have to say, YES. Please give us a season 3!

  12. I really hope there is a season 3, this was very captivating and loved the suspense, turns & twists. Never really knew what to expect….Please Season 3….

  13. The story line and characters were intriguing, there must be a Season 3.
    They need to keep the same writers, why mess with perfection?
    Please don’t leave us hanging, I need to know what’s going on at home with teen’s families, how are they okay not hearing from their children?

  14. There has to be closer to this series. Hope they are not a disappointment to us all. We were fans and supported the show. Such a void 😩

  15. If there is a season 3 it needs to bring back the characters that “supposed” to have died and the moles to bring down the researcher but make it a 4 season mystery.

  16. My husband and I totally bought into the intriguing premise of this series. The personality strengths and weaknesses of the characters drew us in from the very beginning. The guys and gals need to join together in Season 3 and let the viewers see the conflicts and elegances that evolve in the group. We will be very disappointed if this series is not renewed. Please bring it back, and sooner not later!!

  17. stayed up till 6 am watching this show, and finished it in less than 24 hours! I need season 3 and 4

  18. Yes please, Season 3 and 4. This show is Amazing. I haven’t watched a show I liked in a long time. The actors and the ratings are great. We need to know more information. So yes, yes please Season 3.

  19. I’m so sick of getting hooked on these shows and I’m not renewing so please please I’m a huge fan I have to know what happens it’s a different Outlook with a brand new taste for television something new refreshing that hasn’t been done before please renew for a season 3

  20. IMO YES AND YES PLEASE The writing and premise are excellent and just when it gets us ready and expectant for the next “phase3” episode – boom – it stops?! What?!!!!! nooooooo

  21. The writing and premise are excellent and just when it gets us ready and expectant for the next “phase3” episode – boom – it stops?! What?!!!!! nooooooo

  22. The ending left too many questions…to many vignettes that came and went…which seems to me to have been preludes to what may come…and anyway…I want to see Gretchen get her deserved come-uppance…as a researcher with no soul. The writing and acting and mes en scenes are amazing. If you don’t renew anything else…Amazon…please continue with this story. I didn’t stay up till 4 in the morning… only to be left hanging!

  23. Yes please continue the show, Hate the way it ended , Leah has to end being the hero , please continue

  24. Yes Yes Yes season 3 has to happen please don’t leave us hanging, there is so much more we need to see to find out !!!

  25. Yes, there needs to be a season 3.
    Too many great series end short of the answers we viewers seek.
    One example is ‘firefly’!! Just look at the following it has now, and they shot it down after 1 season.
    So yes, while ever the writers keep leaving unanswered questions, then please keep giving us the episodes that answer them….

  26. Yes! I want to see how these amazing characters survive! So many new combinations for alliances.
    (Meanwhile, Seth & Henry’s mom can be mounting an investigation and rescue. )

  27. Yes we need more season. I feel like the 2nd season has left me wanting more! Kind of a cliff hanger!!! A lot more needs to see with the ones left on the island!!! We have to know how, when or if they get back home!!!!

  28. There should be a third and final season! I’m a senior citizen, so let’s not drag this out, please!

  29. A resounding YES to a season 3 + more.

    There are so many more options and scenarios that could be explored going forward with this series.

    I was hesitant to watch this thinking it was just another “Lord of the Flies “ premise. It is and, it is not.

    I watched both seasons back to back in 2 days. It was.so well done.

    I am a white, 62yr old man. I am also gay and, I was raised in an ultra religious cult manner. I related to many of these characters for other reasons that mirrored my life when I was their age. Maybe even now.

    I feel blessed, so to speak, that a larger percentage of the current generation can take for granted just being who they are, sometimes.

    This series reminds anyone watching that not everything is as it seems. Lessons are stilled to be learned. Everyone has a chance to improve.

    Gretchen is no better than any other toxic person in power. Everyone is abused to get the results they want. Female or Male.

    These characters have a chance to prove that attitudes, bias and the affect of negative life lessons can be changed, unlearned and modified.

    I may have read more into the message of the series. I believe that it was designed and written to be thought provoking. Lessons, possibly learned, in the guise of entertainment. Bravo!

    ONCE AGAIN, I vote a big YES for more seasons!

  30. Need season 3 , got hooked and now need more seasons. I am 60 and enjoyed it very much .
    Thanks

  31. Wow…. no way can you cheat us out of season three. So many questions so many possibilities. The transformation of the characters is incredible but we need to know what comes next. That and I really need that crazy women to pay the price for her actions. Bring it on!!!

  32. Oh my god this program is amazing, my partner was watching it when I got home from work, but was on season 1 episode 3, I only got to see the last half-hour of that episode but from that point I was hooked. You have to make a season 3, so many people will be so angry if you don’t.

  33. There most definitely has to be a Season 3!!!!!! This is one of the best shows I’ve seen in a long time 🙂 I CRAZY HOOKED!!!!!! LETS GET IT TOGETHER FOLKS AND PUT OUT A SEASON 3😃😃😃

  34. I will love a season 3 because there is still unkown stories like where did Norah go when the assistant said its time ?! Like i neeed to know lol what happends now are they going to stick toguether and try to get out of there is it going to be fbi when ian goes and see them? I think there is to much unknown to not make a other season , i am urging to see a other season 🙂

  35. I feel like every show i become addicted to gets canceled please don’t cancel. We need season 3 and 4/5/6 & on And on until there is no lose ends. Sooner the better. My husband also became addicted and he is pretty picky. Bring on season 3

  36. Definitely hooked on this show. There are way too many loose ends. Why is Nora in on this, how do they justify her sisters hand being severed (lawsuit). It’s not Enough that she is stranded on an island, but to lose a hand. We need to understand some of the characters and their lives before the supposed plane crash. If there isn’t a third season, one and two would have been for nothing. We need to see how the two groups interact and how it all plays out. Season three soon, please!!!

  37. Absolutely!!!!! Can’t, just can not wait for Season 3 and S0 4 and 5 and so on and forth!

  38. 100% yes! Season 3 please. This programme is amazing and thought provoking on many levels. Real world problems are tackled fantastically and with empathy. Bravo to the writers

  39. I just binged watched season 1 & 2 over the last week and a half. I’m hooked. There has to be a season 3.

  40. Why put out those 2 seasons and not have another. Christ given the way season 1 and 2 when I’m not even a writer and I have a bunch of ideas for good stuff to happen. Having said that i think i answered the question at hand here. Hopefully its not going to be too long before there’s more episodes.

  41. There definitely needs to be a season 3. I want to see the lady that heads up the program suffer the way she has made these kids suffer or atleast the families if the kids be compensated. Anyways no matter how it will be written there should be another season. This is an excellent show. Very truth revealing and in a lot of ways can be healing. It’s also exciting and somewhat dangerous at times. I t really does test their strengths an weaknesses and can hel them to overcome many obstacles in their lives. But I do believe that every island should Be equipped with more bunker foods and some X-rays waters and medical supplies. The kids should never ever have had to worry about their lives being in any danger from wild animals and sharks. There needs to be a way to totally prevent that type of danger

  42. Please air season 3 soon. This was an amazing series. And I don’t usually like this type of program.

  43. I am 73 years old and really loved this series. Both seasons 1 & 2.
    I stayed clued the tv.
    Would love to see a season 3, sooner then later at my age.
    Will look forward to updates.

  44. NEED SEASON 3 ASAP!!!! I CANT BEAR TO WAIT A WHOLE YEAR/YEAR AND A HALF TO SEE WHAT ENDS UP HAPPENING!! But seriously this is one the best tv shows I’ve ever watched!!!

  45. I absolutely liked it from the start but season 2 disappointed me …don’t care if there’s another season it was a waste of my time

  46. YES we need season 3! Need closure not a cliffhanger! It’s a great show but there are a bunch of loose ends that need to be explained. Like…Nora is still alive??? Please don’t leave us hanging.

  47. Honestly the best tv series I have ever watched! Hoping for a season 3 in the making soon!!

  48. We need to see a season 3, it’s captivating to see. What happens next. Please do a season 3.

  49. THERE HAS TO BE A SEASON 3 & WE CANNOT WAIT ANOTHER YEAR AND A HALF !!! One of the BEST series I have ever seen. You dont have to be young to appreciate the stories being told and the complexity of what makes us Human & why we are the way we are as adults. Simply AWESOME
