The Wilds synopsis

Initially, the series may have a LOST vibe. Nine teenage girls are stranded on an island after their plane crashes. They’re trapped and afraid, and they’re not even all friends.

Tensions run high as they figure out where they are and how to get word out that they’re stuck here.

However, think of this more as like LOST meets The Society. It turns out the teenagers haven’t accidentally ended up on the island. Their families may have arranged to send them there!

The series isn’t just a chance to tell a survival story. It’s a coming of age story. Being a teenage girl is hard on its own, but these girls have to figure out who they are and what they’re capable of, while fighting off the lives they left behind.

The Wilds trailer
