AMC has announced that they have renewed their Western drama THE SON for a second season. Starring Pierce Brosnan, based on Philipp Meyer’s novel of the same name, the series is set around a Texas ranching and oil family. The second season will return in 2018 with 10 new episodes.

Charlie Collier, President of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios said:

“THE SON proudly continues our Western traditions at AMC, including BROKEN TRAIL, HELL ON WHEELS and decades of films from THE DUKE, Clint and so many more. We are so pleased to add to that list another season of our original, multi-generational drama from Philipp Meyer, Kevin Murphy and a remarkable cast led by the incomparable Pierce Brosnan. It’s our longstanding mission to super-serve Westerns fans on weekends and we look forward to continuing this epic next year. Welcome home, SON.”

Philipp Meyer, Co-Creator and Executive Producer said:

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

Kevin Murphy, Showrunner and Executive Producer said:

“I am enormously grateful to AMC and Sonar for this opportunity to reunite with this incredibly talented cast and crew, roll up our collective sleeves and get back to work creating the next installment of the McCullough family saga.”

Brosnan said:

“I am over the moon haps 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. And above all else to our ever-growing fan base, I extend my heartfelt thanks for your support.”
