Despite low Nielsen ratings last year, the Lodge 49 TV show on AMC wasn’t cancelled. Now that it’s back for a second season, can it prove the cable network’s faith in it and build up its audience? Will Lodge 49 be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A philosophical AMC comedy-drama, Lodge 49 stars Wyatt Russell, Brent Jennings, Sonya Cassidy, Linda Emond, David Pasquesi, and Eric Allan Kramer. The series centers on Sean “Dud” Dudley (Russell), an aimless former surfer who has been floundering through life. Following the death of his father and failure of the family business, Dud joins a mysterious fraternal retreat which offers cheap beer and strange alchemical philosophies. Now, thanks to the Ancient and Benevolent Order of the Lynx and its members, he starts to find a sense of purpose and begins to acknowledge both his hopes and fears. In season two, with “the Lynx” under bad leadership, Dud thinks it is up to him to revive the Lodge.
