FX may be better served by the fact that Jeff Bridges isn’t growing any younger, even at the age of 72. The Old Man, adapted on Thomas Perry’s 2017 novel of the same name, has the Oscar winner as the lead. For the last three decades, Dan Chase (Jeff Bridges) has been living off the grid in Upstate New York as a grizzled former CIA officer.
The intruder Dan killed forces him to flee his house and go into hiding. At its core is a harsh and tactical game that FX plans to pursue beyond the seven episodes of Season 1. The Old Man got renewed for a second season by the cable network less than two weeks after its launch on June 16.
It has become the most-watched cable series opener since January 2021, according to Deadline. The series debut on Hulu is also the most-watched FX show on Hulu, according to Deadline. It’s a no-brainer that The Old Man will return for more action, given its early popularity. Here’s all we know about Jeff Bridges’ spy thriller’s second season thus far.
The Old Man season 2 Storyline
If Chase doesn’t get caught first, Season 2 will presumably focus on the aftermath of the search. Zoe (Amy Brenneman), whom he meets while fleeing in Season 1, becomes an ally while he’s out on the run. Harold Harper (John Lithgow), an FBI counterintelligence specialist, has his sights set on both of them.
Chase and he have a tumultuous past that dates back to the Soviet-Afghan War. Harper enlists the aid of one of his former students, Angela (Alia Shawkat), in his pursuit of Chase (Gbenga Akinnagbe).

Thomas Perry’s work, despite being the source material, is a stand-alone narrative. Season 2 of The Old Man may have to wander into unknown terrain if there is no sequel to the novel. But only if they’ve faithfully adapted Perry’s novel.
The Old Man season 2 Cast
So far, we don’t know who will be axed in season one’s conclusion because the season is still being revealed weekly. Given that Dan Chase is the show’s title character, we can almost surely count on Jeff Bridges returning to reprise his role. In addition, we’d want to see the following actors return:
John Lithgow as Harold Harper
Actor John Arthur Lithgow is a native of the United States of America. Harvard University and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art were both attended by Lithgow before he became famous for his work on the stage and in film.
Amy Brenneman as Zoe
In addition to being an actress, Amy Frederica Brenneman is also a producer based out of Los Angeles, California. New York City Blue’s Detective Janice Licalsi originally made her name as a TV star when she played her in the ABC series.
Brenneman then co-created and starred in the CBS drama series Judging Amy as Judge Amy Gray.
Alia Shawkat as FBI agent Angela Adams
Shawkat, Alia Martine, is an American film and television actress. To date, she has been in films such as the State of Grace, The Old Man, Maeby Fünke on Arrested Development, Gertie Michaels on The Final Girls, and Dory Sief on TBS and HBO Max‘s Search Party.
EJ Bonilla as Raymond Waters
Bonilla is an American actor best known for his roles in television and movies. As Rafe Rivera on Guiding Light, he is most remembered.
Gbenga Akinnagbe as Julian Carson
As Chris Partlow on HBO’s The Wire and as Larry Brown on The Deuce, Olugbenga Enitan Temitope Akinnagbe is an American actor and writer.
This, of course, depends on how well they do in the first season of the competition.
The Old Man Season 2 Release Date
When the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in 2019 and Jeff Bridges was diagnosed with cancer in 2020, FX announced the first season of The Old Man in 2019. However, the network suspended production twice during filming.
You have no idea how different the game is. Jeff Bridges and the creators of the show lay out the journey of bringing The Old Man from novel to script to screen. All Episodes Now Available. Stream on @hulu. #TheOldManFX. pic.twitter.com/1wiVpSkegK

In the end, work resumed with Bridges and the film was completed in early 2022. Season 1’s production schedule couldn’t be used as a guide for Season 2, since we may expect a less disruptive filming schedule for the second part. Season 2 is expected to launch in mid-to-late 2023 if there are no obstacles.
