The Wilds season 2 on Amazon Prime Video is finally here and there’s a whole new bunch of castaways.
The brand new chapter introduces the group of male survivors who find themselves in the same nightmare situation as Shelby (Mia Healey), Toni (Erana James), Lea (Sarah Pidgeon), and the rest of the remaining girls.
‘Both groups will be forced to navigate emotional and physical obstacles in the face of their extreme circumstances,’ the official synopsis teases.
Will everyone make it out of the experiment alive? Only time will tell…
Let’s meet the survivors who will no doubt be put through their paces in this twisted experiment.
Who is new to the cast of The Wilds season 2?
Zack Calderon as Rafael Garcia
Rafael is described as a quiet teenager from Tijuana who lives in San Diego.
Straddling two worlds has made it difficult for Rafael to get a clear and certain sense of himself, so he gravitates toward people with stronger, more charismatic personalities than his own.
He is played by Zack Calderon, who has starred in CBS’ FBI.
Aidan Laprete as Henry Tanaka
Aidan Laprete’s character Henry is a recluse who tends to lose himself in the darkness of the world.
Prior to The Wilds, Aidan featured in the comedy series Everything’s Gonna Be Okay and Chad.
He’s also an American singer and record producer and released his debut album, Echoes, in 2015.
Nicholas Coombe as Josh Herbert
Nicholas Coombe takes on the role of Josh, a talkative hypochondriac from San Diego. Josh is awkward and nervous, unlike his athletic family.
He has previously appeared in the military comedy-drama 68 Whiskey, as well as the TV series Spy Kids: Mission Critical.
Charles Alexander as Kirin O’Conner
Kirin O’Conner is an impatient lacrosse player who’s more than happy to take the lead among the castaways.
The jock is played by Charles Alexander, who has featured in The Matchmaker and Present Laughter. In 2019 he wrote, produced, and starred in the short film, Mother Dearest.
Miles Gutierrez-Riley as Ivan Taylor
Miles Gutierrez-Riley portrays Ivan Taylor, an activist and aspiring playwright with an impeccable fashion sense and a razor-sharp wit.
His words can cut too deep sometimes though, which has cost him friends along the way.
The Wilds will mark Miles’ television debut.
Reed Shannon as Scotty Simms
Reed Shannon is newcomer Scotty Simms, a fast-talking teenage entrepreneur from the Florida who dreams of making the Forbes 400 list one day.
By his side always, both in life and on the island, is his best friend Bo (played by Tanner Ray Rook).
Reed Shannon has previously lent his voice to the animated TV shows Arcane and Blaze And The Monster Machines.
Tanner Ray Rook as Bo
Tanner Ray Rook is Scotty’s best friend Bo Leonard. Bo, also from Florida, is a soft-spoken and contemplative teenage.
He has a naively optimistic outlook on life, despite a difficult upbringing, and he’d gladly lie down in the street for his best friend Scotty. His loyalty knows almost no bounds.
The Wilds is a big break for Tanner, who previously appeared in the TV series Side Quest in 2019.
Alex Fitzalan as Seth
Alex Fitzalan plays Seth Novak, who is described as naturally funny, Ivy-League smart, and full of charisma.
Although he doesn’t necessarily aspire to a leadership role, Seth’s steadiness and sense of humour win him the respect and loyalty of the rest of the group, except for his step-brother Henry.
Prior to The Wilds, Alex made his American screen debut in Slender Man.
He also starred alongside Kathryn Newton in the Netflix series The Society, which was cancelled after one season.
Is there a trailer?
The Wilds season 2 is available to stream on Prime Video now.
