The Old Man Gets Renewed for Season 2 at FX



FX will be keeping Jeff Bridges around for a while longer. After debuting the actor’s new series The Old Man, the network has officially put the order in for a second season. Per Deadline, the series had a particularly strong debut when it premiered its first two episodes earlier this month. Doing well on both cable and digital, The Old Man was the most-watched series premiere since January 2021 and the most-watched FX series debut on Hulu in its opening weekend.

“Jonathan E. Steinberg, Dan Shotz and Warren Littlefield have done a fantastic job with The Old Man, which delivers on the powerful intrigue and breathtaking action of Thomas Perry’s book,” Eric Schrier, FX Entertainment President, said in a statement. “The stellar cast led by Jeff Bridges, John Lithgow, Amy Brenneman, and Alia Shawkat is really connecting with audiences, and we are excited to get to work on season two with our colleagues at 20th Television and this fantastic team.”

Karey Burke, President of 20th Television, added: “This terrific series has had a long journey to the air, which makes the reaction from critics and audiences these past few weeks all the sweeter. But the truth is, no one who has worked on it these past three years is surprised it’s resonating so deeply. From the brilliant creative execution by Jon, Dan and Warren to the spectacular star turns from Jeff, John, Amy, and Alia, this heart racing series delivers and we thank FX for the incredible support.”

Jeff Bridges stars in The Old Man as a former CIA operative who’s been living off the grid for decades only to be pulled back in when targeted by an assassin. The series also stars Jon Lithgow, E. J. Bonilla, Bill Heck, Leem Lubany, Aila Shawkat, Gbenga Akinnagbe, and Amy Brenneman. Jonathan E. Steinberg created the series with Robert Levine. It is based on the original novel by Thomas Perry. You can read the official synopsis below.

The Old Man centers on Dan Chase who absconded from the CIA decades ago and has been living off the grid since. When an assassin arrives and tries to take Chase out, the old operative learns that to ensure his future he now must reconcile his past. With Dan Chase flushed out of hiding, the FBI’s Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Harold Harper is called on to hunt him down because of his complicated past with the rogue fugitive. When Chase proves to be more difficult to apprehend than the authorities expected, a highly trained special ops contractor is sent to pursue him as well. While on the run, Chase rents a room from Zoe McDonald who draws on reserves she never knew she had in order to survive the day when she learns the truth about her new tenant.

The Old Man airs Thursdays on FX. The second season of the series does not yet have a premiere date on FX but it will be good for fans to know as they watch along with season 1 that a season 2 is already in the works.
