M. Night Shyamalan’s event series for FOX has been filming on its Agassiz set since early September but with really long breaks between shoots. That changed in the new year and Wayward Pines expects to use the set more frequently over the next month — as long as the weather cooperates — until it wraps its ten episodes [in early April].

This fictional namesake town is described as a cross between Twin Peaks and The X-Files.  Secret service agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) comes to Wayward Pines to investigate the disappearance of two federal agentsSecret service agent Ethan Burke (Matt Dillon) comes to Wayward Pines, Idaho, to investigate the disappearance of two federal agents, one of whom is his former Secret Service partner Kate Hewson (Carla Gugino) who almost broke up his marriage. When an accidents puts him in hospital with no identification or cell phone, he is cared for by a nurse (Melissa Leo) and treated by a psychiatrist (Toby Jones). Eventually his wife (Shannyn Sossamon) and son (Charlie Tahan) come to Wayward Pines to find out what happened. Other Wayward Pines residents include Sheriff Pope (Terence Howard) and town bartender Beverly (Juliette Lewis). Will Burke ever leave?

Earlier this month, a still-bloodied Burke (Dillon) had not left  Wayward Pines but seemed well enough to tackle someone on the Agassiz set.
