New on TV this week: 'Wayward Pines,' 'Bloodline,' 'Bachelorette'

Perhaps the biggest surprise of last summer was Fox's dubiously-pedigreed "Wayward Pines" — it came from M. Night Shyamalan, who long ago frittered away his cred with "The Happening" and "The Last Airbender" and the like. But the series, initially conceived as a limited run, proved to be a keeper, with a keep-'em-guessing premise and creepy humor. An adaptation of Blake Crouch's popular sci fi trilogy (from which it does depart significantly), the first season of "Wayward Pines" followed a Secret Service agent who awakens in a time-warped town that he can't leave. Spoiler alert — he wouldn't want to, as it's now the 41st century, and the world outside the town's tall gates is dominated by monstrous man-eating creatures called Abbies.

The second season finds the teenagers who took over the town in the first season finale firmly entrenched in a martial law scenario, and another newcomer (Jason Patric) trying to get his bearings. It also promises more revelations about the true nature of the Abbies. (Wednesday, 9 p.m.)

What else is new this week:

Netflix's noir "Bloodline" was one of the best dramas of 2015 and featured the best performance of the year by Ben Mendelsohn as Danny Rayburn, the black sheep of a prominent Florida Keys family whose younger brother John (Kyle Chandler, also excellent) kills him and covers up his murder in the first season. Well, Danny is still dead in season two, but Mendelsohn still gets to ply his ferocious blend of melancholy and menace as John and his siblings deal with the fallout of the murder. (Streaming Friday)

ABC's "The Bachelorette" returns for a 12th season, with Texan JoJo Fletcher, Ben Higgins' also-ran, picking her way through 26 eligible bachelors, one of whom is an erectile dysfunction specialist, another a self-described "Bachelor" superfan, and a third who lists his profession as "hipster." So really, 23 eligible bachelors. (Monday, 9 p.m.)
