Malcolm Bright considered his father Martin a genius. He was perfectly versed in human anatomy and willingly shared his knowledge with his son. Years later, it became known that the dad was the most famous serial killer named The Surgeon. Now Malcolm does not want to have anything to do with him, but fate decrees otherwise…
“Prodigal Son ss 3”: release date, announcement
If after season 1 there were doubts about the popularity of the show, now they can safely take on the next episodes! However, the fans’ joy did not last long. In May 2021, the creators of the TV series “Prodigal Son” officially announced the closure of the project after the release of season 2. The reasons for this decision are unknown.
When Malcolm was 10 years old, he learned the whole truth about the parent. Being the most dangerous criminal of the century, Martin still loved the child, although he could not give up his criminal activity. The police came to the house and took the father to prison, and the son was left alone with the revealed truth.
Skillfully dealing with victims, Martin was able to influence any part of the body in order to kill a person. Over the years, the mother and sister were able to more or less forget about the terrible incident, but Malcolm had a hard time. Nightmares interfered with normal sleep, and the mouth guard became the guy’s best friend for all subsequent years. He had not only to fall asleep with it, but even to be handcuffed.
The past influenced Malcolm so much that he chose to change his last name, so as not to have anything to do with the one who so disgraced the family. Sometimes he caught himself thinking that he was ashamed of the time spent with his father.
In the future, the FBI was chosen as the main profession, where they were looking for serial killers. Wanting to save the world from people like his father, the boy spent his energy on catching criminals and did not spare his free time. When you see this face to face, you perceive the problem more sharply – so Malcolm thought, entering the service.
He did not have to work for a long time – the next catching of the killer ended in dismissal. The reason was serious – deciding to save the victim by all means, Malcolm cuts off his hand. For such actions, he has to give up a badge and be removed from service. But then a policeman finds him and offers to illegally investigate.
The perpetrator is a copycat of the Surgeon and adores his methods. To find the unknown, the guy goes to meet with his father. He will definitely give a clue leading to the solution to the new rebus. Nightmares again do not allow the son to live in peace, interfere with his daily activities, which means that a new business does not require delay – it must be urgently resolved…
