“The Old Man ss 2”: release date, announcement
Season 1’s success took seasoned showrunners Jeff Bridges and Robert Levine by surprise. Both have been working in the film industry for a long time and were pleasantly surprised that even their advanced age does not make their work boring for a younger audience.
The continuation of the TV series “The Old Man” at the official level became known immediately after the premiere of the first three episodes. The production process for Season 2 will start soon, so the premiere of new episodes will most likely take place in the fall of 2023. We continue to follow the news.
All of Dan’s days are equally boring. He spends time on the phone, chatting with his daughter and keeping an eye on the house he lives in. Lately, the daughter has been asking more questions about her father’s safety than usual. Having done many different things in the past, he is forced to hide and protect his daughter. Without seeing her, he manages to protect her from intelligence agents.
Emily’s intuition does not fail. Dan really noticed something amiss. Strange people meet on his way all the time. This suggests that unpleasant changes are coming. By securing the house from outside intrusion, Dan hopes to be the first to take his opponents by surprise. And so it turns out: on the very first night, a bandit breaks into him, whom Chase kills on the spot.
To the arriving policemen, he explains that at night an unknown person started shooting at his house, and Dan shot in his direction so as not to be killed. No one doubts the veracity of the words of the pensioner, so no suspicion falls on him. But an acquaintance from the old life calls Chase and says that he must disappear forever and even forget about his daughter. Not wanting to leave the only person he loves, Chase declares war on his former comrades.
Together with the episodes of the present, the background of the protagonist is also told. Many years ago, he was on assignment for the government, and his companion was Abbey, who later became his wife. Dreaming of a family, the lovers gave up dangerous work and came up with new names for themselves.
Soon Dan and Abbey got a small house and a daughter. Two years ago, when Emily was already living apart from her parents, Abbey felt unwell. She began to lose her memory and consciousness returned to her less and less. Dan refused to send his wife to a psychiatric clinic, as a result, she died. He did not manage to survive the death of his beloved woman, but he manages to live for the sake of his daughter…
Now Dan needs to protect Emily, hide from the chase and come up with a new name for himself. But can he do it? After all, he is followed by a life-long trail of blood…
