AMC Renews 'The Son' for Season 2

A little over a month since its series debut, AMC has renewed its original drama series The Son for a second season. The new season will include 10 episodes, which will debut in 2018.

Based on the book of the same name, the drama is a sweeping saga about a Texas ranching and oil family that spans three generations and 150 years of the McCullough Family. The series specifically looks at the transformation of patriarch Eli from a good-natured innocent to calculating killer.

The drama stars Pierce Brosnan, Jacob Lofland, Henry Garrett, Zahn McClarnon, Jess Weixler, Paola Núñez, Elizabeth Frances and Sydney Lucas.

Philipp Meyer, Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy developed the series. They executive produce with Kevin Murphy, Tom Harper, Jenna Santoianni, Tom Lesinski and Michael Connolly. AMC Studios and Sonar Entertainment produce.

"I couldn't be more excited to continue sharing this story with our viewers," said Meyer. "Thank you to our wonderful cast and crew, as well as AMC and Sonar for allowing us to continue this journey."

"I am over the moon happy to be back in the saddle as Colonel Eli McCullough for season two 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 Brosnan. "And above all else to our ever-growing fan base, I extend my heartfelt thanks for your support."
