“The Maze Runner” is yet another young adult novel-turned-movie blockbuster that has capitalized on the trend of having teens in precarious, deadly, post-apocalyptic situations. The film made tons of money at the box office–$163.4 million worldwide, according to CinemaBlend–so of course, a sequel is in the works. You might be a person who is over all of these Ya post-apocalyptic adaptations, but when you see who has just been cast in “The Maze Runner” sequel, you just might be on board (especially if you’re a fan of “Breaking Bad” or “Once Upon a Time”).

I haven't seen or read any of the reviews for The Maze Runner. I have been told it was visually impressive, especially considering it was made on a budget of only $34 million and the film is certainly doing well worldwide, having already made $175.4 million in 17 days of release. So, with Fox already planning The Maze Runner Chapter II: The Scorch Trials for release less than a year after the first one hit theaters, they are clearly hoping to strike while the iron is hot. In the sequel, Dylan O'Brien return as Thomas, but now that he and the rest of the teen heroes have escaped the maze they must now travel the wasteland that is Earth, ravaged by solar flares. Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Sangster, Jacob Lofland and Rosa Salazar are also returning. Joining the cast for the next chapter include Aidan Gillen ("The Game of Thrones") as the film's lead »

The sequel to one of this year’s most well-received Ya adaptations was only given the go-ahead at the beginning of last week.

With a release date set for September 18th, 2015 the cast of the Maze Runner: Scorch Trials has to come together quickly for production to begin this fall on the sequel to last month's young adult sci-fi box office hit.
