Rachel Griffiths in Amazon Prime Video’s The Wilds
Rachel Griffiths probably plays one of the most despicable villains with Gretchen Klein in the streaming series The Wilds for Prime Video.
The woman is uncaring, manipulative, and has a firm belief lives can be destroyed in the name of science.
As its second season for The Wilds streaming tomorrow, Gretchen Klein introduces a control group with boys for the experiment to go along with the group of girls. With the twists and turns in the series, it’s a wonder if she’s even playing chess with everyone’s lives anymore.
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.
