The Son Is Renewed for Season 2

Posted by Marissa Shapiro on May 13, 2017

The sweeping saga about a Texas ranching and oil family, based on Philipp Meyer’s New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize finalist novel, will return to AMC in 2018 with 10 new episodes.

“I am over the moon happy to be back in the saddle as Colonel Eli McCullough for Season 2 of The Son and to stand shoulder-to-shoulder alongside our incredible cast of actors, writers, directors and our amazing crew in the heart of Austin, Texas,” said Pierce Brosnan. 

The Son is an epic family saga spanning three generations and 150 years of the McCullough family. The series traces the transformation of Eli McCullough (Brosnan), the charismatic family patriarch, from good-natured innocent to calculating killer. 

Eli’s ruthlessness pits him against his wealthy Spanish neighbor, Pedro Garcia (Carlos Bardem) and his quest for power triggers consequences that span generations. Shared through a series of flashbacks, The Son pulls viewers into the world of young Eli McCullough (Jacob Lofland) and his father figure, Comanche war chief, Toshaway (Zahn McClarnon) and deftly explores the McCullough’s rise to become one the most powerful family dynasties in Texas. 

Season 1 of The Son is airing currently on Saturdays at 9/8c. Watch the latest episode now on amc.com and AMC apps for mobile, XBox One, Apple TV, Roku and Chromecast.
