Pierce Brosnan’s epic Western series The Son returns on Tuesday 30th April, AMC has confirmed.
The channel is exclusive to BT customers and is available free of charge to BT TV customers and to BT Sport Pack subscribers on Sky channel 192.
Based on Philipp Meyer’s New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize finalist novel of the same name the series stars Brosnan as Eli McCullough, a tough frontiersman and former soldier turned rancher and oil man who will stop at nothing to secure his legacy.
The show moves between 1917 – where Eli must deal with a civil war under his own roof, triggered by his idealistic son Pete (Henry Garrett), while also trying to secure the ultimate prize of creating a lasting American dynasty – and 1851 where young Eli (Jacob Lofland) is living as a member of the Comanche tribe.
Now married and a respected warrior among the Comanches, tragedy forces Eli into a leadership position as the vast Comanche empire crumbles around him.
The latest run will broaden the series’ scope with a 1988 timeline, bringing the McCullough saga into the more immediate past. Here, at age 85, Eli’s granddaughter Jeanne Anne McCullough (Lois Smith) is confronted with a long-buried family secret.
In addition to Brosnan, Smith, Garrett and Lofland, the series also stars Paola Núñez, Zahn McClarnon, Jess Weixler, David Wilson Barnes, Sydney Lucas, James Parks, Elizabeth Frances, Shane Graham and Kathryn Prescott.
The Son is produced by AMC Studios and Sonar Entertainment. Showrunner and writer Kevin Murphy, director Kevin Dowling, author Philipp Meyer, and Sonar Entertainment’s Tom Lesinski and Jenna Santoianni are Executive Producers.
