DESCRIPTION:
(from AMC's press release, May 2017) AMC today announced that it has renewed its Western drama, "The Son" for a second season. Starring Pierce Brosnan, "The Son" is a sweeping saga about a Texas ranching and oil family based on Philipp Meyer's New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize finalist novel of the same name. The series will return to AMC in 2018 with 10 new episodes. AMC is currently airing season one of "The Son," which is averaging 2.3 million viewers each week, capping a day of classic Western films and television shows on Saturdays. In the current television season, "The Son" is the #1 original program on cable on Saturday nights and #3 in all of television. "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. He loses everything on the wild frontier, setting him on the path to building a ranching-and-oil dynasty of unsurpassed wealth and privilege. Eli's eldest son Pete (Henry Garrett), has grown up in his father's shadow and struggles to make him proud while forging his own identity. Pete's strong-willed daughter, Jeannie (Sydney Lucas) idolizes her grandfather and despite being raised in a male-dominated world, rejects her fate of existing solely to marry and bear children. 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.
