The Old Man Season 2: Release Date

The Old Man was the #1 most watched cable series since January 2021. It was also reported that the series premiere was the most watched content on Hulu, where the series is also available for streaming. The series is also available on Disney Plus.
The Old Man Season 2 Plot: What can we expect from the sequel?
Season 2 of The Old Man will likely deal with the fallout from Chase’s hunt. In season 1, while on the run, he meets Zoe, who becomes his ally during his run. Both find themselves in the crosshairs of Harold Harper, an FBI agent specializing in counterintelligence.
His task is to catch Chase because the two share a sordid history that developed during the Soviet-Afghan war. Harper enlists the help of his student Angela to assist him in his hunt, while elsewhere, a hitman named Julian Carson is also on Chase’s trail.
Although it serves as background material, Thomas Perry’s novel is a stand-alone story. Without a sequel to the book, The Old Man may have to venture into uncharted territory for Season 2. It has been confirmed that the main cast will return for Season 2. John Lithgow, Amy Brenneman and Jeff Bridges will star in season 2 of The Old Man.
