In Recursion, it’s 2008 and Dr. Helena Smith is a brilliant neuroscientist driven by the devastation that Alzheimer’s disease is ravaging on her family to create a device that will save the memories of those people who are losing them. Not just a passing or faded memory, but those core ones that define our lives. And they are very lucid, very vivid memories. The way she has worked out the science, if you were to review these saved memories, you’d swear you’re living them firsthand. But she’s out of funding.

Enter Marcus Slade, a billionaire tycoon driven by a love of science and technology who wants to give Helena anything she needs to make her dreams a reality.

Wayward Pines debuted on FOX last May and became an immediate hit during its 10-episode run. The series, based on the stories by Blake Crouch, is about a strange Idaho town that is much more than it seems. Executive Produced by M. Night Shyamalan (who also directed the pilot), the show featured an amazing cast, including Oscar nominees Matt Dillon, Juliette Lewis, Terrence Howard, and Oscar winner Melissa Leo, alongside other veterans like Shannyn Sossamon, Carla Gugino, and Toby Jones. The show had a definite LOST vibe to it, mixing science fiction, supernatural, and intense drama.

To get ready for the debut of season 2, FOX has released several short preview videos to prep audiences for the all new season, which starts next week. Check out the videos below including the in-depth recap of season 1.

C’mon”¦ the episode is called The Truth?! No way! No way are they going to reveal the secrets of Wayward Pines in only episode 5… right? Well, they kind of do. I have to admit it’s refreshing to have a show answer the questions you have, even if you might not like those answers. I fell in and out of love with LOST quickly, due to feeling like I was being strung along hopelessly. With M. Night Shyamalan attached to Wayward Pines as an executive producer and director, one could be skeptical that everything would be revealed in a huge shock-and-awe ending ala The 6th Sense.
