Prodigal Son Season 2


As a child, Malcolm spent a lot of time with Martin, his father. Each phrase said by the parent was absorbed by the baby like a sponge – the father told where the most important arteries of the person are, what they serve and many more interesting things that surgeons know about. Only after years it became known for what purpose Martin did this…

When will the series “Prodigal Son Season 2” be released?

The sequel to the crime drama “Prodigal Son” will appear on screens no earlier than spring 2021. After all, the coronavirus has made its own adjustments to the film industry. All premieres have been displaced, including the release of new episodes of our favorite TV series.

The plot is shrouded in mystery, but with each series, viewers are increasingly moving towards a denouement. Will season 2 be final? Or is the main character still waiting for new investigations?


At the age of 10, police broke into Malcolm’s home to capture the most dangerous criminal in all of America. It turned out to be Martin, among the policemen known as the “The Surgeon”, because he could accurately deal with the victim, affecting only certain parts of the body. Such a blow did not pass without a trace for the whole family.

After the imprisonment of the head of the family, the rest of the family could hardly find peace for themselves. Malcolm’s mom and sister were able to adapt, but the guy himself, at a conscious age, often saw nightmares and some things simply drove him crazy. He had to sleep with a mouth guard and handcuff himself — otherwise it could end badly.

Over the years of life without a father, the guy decided that he would go to work at the FBI. After all, to expose criminals like his father is Malcolm’s main goal. For a long time everything went well, but after the next capture of a serial killer, Malcolm crashes out from work, losing all right to investigate new crimes. But here he is found by an old fellow policeman, offering him to take up a new business.

The main characters of the series

Malcolm agrees, and almost immediately understands what he faced – the style of crime was so similar to his father that there was no doubt – the current serial maniac completely imitates the eminent Surgeon. It became clear why the old comrade called to investigate the case of Malcolm. But the guy did not want to remain completely without work, and he set to work.

As a result, Malcolm has to fight not only with an unknown criminal, but also with his own demons. Nightmares became more frequent, and on one of the tasks the guy cut off the victim’s hand. How adequate are the actions of the former FBI officer? Will he be able to recover and overcome the fears with which he lived for decades?
