You might want to bring yourself up to speed with Season One before the Season Two premiere of the epic AMC drama.
The Son — the epic AMC drama based on the Philipp Meyer’s New York Times best-selling novel of the same title — finally will return for its second and final season Saturday, April 27, nearly two years after the conclusion of Season One. We previewed the show in a cover story back in our April 2017 issue, which can be found here, and also ran a revealing Q&A with series star Pierce Brosnan, which can be found here.
