Although AMC has renewed some popular scripted series for years, others have been cancelled after only one season. The Son is based on the Philipp Meyer novel of the same name. Does that mean this “limited event series” is just a mini-series by another name? Will The Son be cancelled or renewed for season two on AMC? Stay tuned.
The Son is a Texas period drama starring Pierce Brosnan, Henry Garrett, Sydney Lucas, Carlos Bardem, Jacob Lofland, Zahn McClarnon, Paola Núñez, David Wilson Barnes, Jess Weixler, and Elizabeth Frances. The AMC series, which is simulcast on SundanceTV, follows three generations of the McCullough family and features the metamorphosis of Eli McCullough (Brosnan). The family patriarch, Eli, changes over the years from an affable innocent into a conniving killer.
After losing everything on the wild frontier, Eli rebounds to build a lasting ranching and oil dynasty and, in time, grows exceedingly wealthy. In flashbacks, The Son also recounts the relationship between young Eli (Lofland) and Comanche war chief Toshaway (McClarnon), who served as his father figure. Throughout, The Son delves into the rise of the McCullough family empire.
