However, Chase and Harper risk everything in order to protect their child. Therefore, the two different situations indicate that Bote has a secret relationship with Hamzad with no reason. As viewers get to know Bote it is clear that the FBI Director is only concerned with his reputation in the public eye. So, it’s likely that he is trying to keep his illegal activities in the dark and is receiving Hamzad’s aid in this regard. If the same turns out to be the case, the show may be creating Morgan Bote as the true antagonist of the show. But, viewers will need to wait for the second season to get to know more about Bot

The Old Man Season 2 Release Date Speculation

FX revealed the show’s debut season for 2019 but the network stopped production two times during filming, due to the COVID-19 virus as well as Jeff Bridges’ lymphoma diagnosis in the year 2020. The Old Man eventually restarted production in partnership with Bridges and wrapped up filming in the early part of 2022. With the number of unexpected delays the production schedule of Season 1 isn’t an outline for Season 2, as we are able to assume that the next season will have a more peaceful schedule of filming. In the absence of any setbacks Season 2 will likely premiere in the mid-to-late 2023 timeframe.

The Old Man Season 2 Plot

The Old Man Season 2 Plot

Season 2 is likely to be a continuation of the search for Chase -or, at least, if Chase doesn’t end up being captured initially. While on the run in the first season the pair meet Zoe (Amy Brenneman) who is his ally while being on the run. Both are in the sights from Harold Harper (John Lithgow) who is an FBI agent who specializes in counterintelligence. The mission of Harper is to find Chase since the two have an unsavory past that began during the war between Afghanistan and Soviet Russia. Harper utilizes his student Angela (Alia Shawkat) to assist him in his search; however, elsewhere an armed hitman with his name Julian Carson (Gbenga Akinnagbe) is also following Chase’s trail.

Although it is the source material Thomas Perry’s novel is a stand-alone story. Without any sequel to the novel, The Old Man could be forced to venture into uncharted territory in Season 2. It’s only possible if they’ve totally modified Perry’s book.

The Old Man Season 2 Cast

The Old Man Season 2 Cast

Medias confirmed that the major stars will return for Season 2. John Lithgow, Amy Brenneman and, obviously, Jeff Bridges are set to be the main actors in the second season. As the future of Alia Shawkat’s character still in the air ahead of Season 1’s final episode There are some doubts as to whether she’ll be back for Season 2. For the other cast members they’ll have to endure the wrath Dan Chase if they want to remain. If they’re able to make it however, it doesn’t appear that season 2 is as enjoyable for them.
