'The Son' Renewed For Season 2


Midnight

AMC announced today that The Son has been renewed for a second season. The western drama premiered last month as a Saturday night entry for the cable network, where it has averaged a respectable 2.3 million viewers when factoring in delayed viewing.

AMC has ordered another 10 episodes for Season 2 of the series, matching its freshman count, for an expected return in mid-2018.

Based on the 2013 Phillipp Meyer novel of the same name, The Son is a multi-generational saga that follows the McCullough family through two concurrent time periods. The first takes place in 1849, where a young Eli McCullough is kidnapped and indoctrinated into a tribe of Comanches. The other is set 60 years later, where Eli is now the grown, charismatic patriarch of the McCullough clan. Eli applies his brutal Comanche worldviews in his dealings while struggling to maintain his family's cattle empire during the turbulent Bandit Wars of South Texas.
