The Wilds has officially returned to Amazon Prime for season 2 and after watching the antics of Shelby Goodkind (Mia Healey), Toni Shalifoe (Erana James), Fatin Jadmani (Sophia Ali), Dot Campbell (Shannon Berry), Martha Blackburn (Jenna Clause), Rachel Reid (Reign Edwards), Nora Reid (Helena Howard) and Leah Rilke (Sarah Pidgeon), there's a bunch of new characters to get acquainted with.
The Wilds centres on a group of teenage girls who end up on a deserted island after their plane bound for Hawaii crashes into the ocean. The girls don't only have to fight to survive on the island, they have to navigate their relationships with each other, which proves a lot harder at times.
Season 1 was packed full of twists and turns because not only did we discover that the group didn't end up on this island by accident, there's also another island – and it's all boys.
In season 2, we meet the group of male castaways and see how they fare on the island. So, let's meet the newbies.
