Nicholas Coombe and Miles Gutierrez-Riley in Amazon Prime Video’s The Wilds
It’s the boys’ turn. Well, sort of.
In the second season of Amazon Prime Video’s The Wilds, the social experiment takes a turn to introduce a control group to observe the girls on a deserted island—with a group of boys on another island.
On that island, it introduces a group of eight boys in a similar situation to the girls in season one. Under observation, the social experiment pits the girls versus the boys in terms of survivability, tactics, and the test psychologically.
Here’s the official synopsis of season two of The Wilds:
In season two, survival hangs in the balance for the group of teenage girls stranded on a deserted island, after the explosive discovery that what’s happening to them is an elaborate social experiment. This season ups the drama and keeps you guessing, with the introduction of more test subjects—another island of teenage boys—who must also fight for survival under the watchful eye of the experiment’s puppet master.
The cast also included Sarah Pidgeon, Reign Edwards, Jenna Clause, Sophia Ali, Erana James, Mia Healey, Shannon Berry, Charles Alexander, Miles Gutierrez, Aidan Laprete, Alex Fitzalan, Tanner Ray Rook, Reed Shannon, Nicholas Coombe, Zack Calderon, Troy Winbush, and David Sullivan.
