The Old Man Season 2 Release Date, Cast And Spoilers!

You simply cannot segregate Hollywood and thrillers. This music industry is brimming with mind-blowing, action-packed thriller dramas that lure millions of audiences worldwide. Fx Productions’ The Old Man is yet another thriller that has managed to captivate a wide audience. It is centred around Dan Chase (Jeff Bridges), a former CIA agent who lives a peaceful life with his two rottweilers trying not to stir trouble. As Chase’s fate has it, the cat-and-mouse chase is inevitable for him since a long-lost accomplice is back in his life.

Dan might be an old man surrounded by his pets and solitude on the surface but deep down, he is a war veteran. You can leave your job but can you truly forego it? Chase cannot either and it seems like the FBI can’t either. While Season 1 left us on an intriguing cliffhanger, it also left with a promise of a sequel. However, it now seems like the fulfilment of that promise is endangered.

The Old Man Season 2 Release Date

In 2019, Jonathan E. Steinberg and Robert Levine decided to pick Thomas Perry’s novel and adapt it for a cinematic representation. However, the series production kept witnessing several hurdles and overcoming them didn’t prove to be easy. Be it the pandemic or the lead actor, Bridges’ health issues, the production kept moving further. It went on for three years and then finally, The Old Man Season 1 premiered on Hulu on June 16, 2022, with 7 episodes to its name.

Season 2 wasn’t expected to take this long, the entire development team were hoping for that and the audience, too. But not only dramatic chases but also dramatic delays hail from Steinberg and Levine’s The Old Man series. The Old Man Season 2 was greenlit without any hiatus on June 27, 2022, just a few days after Season 1 proved to be a huge hit. However, smooth production doesn’t seem to be in the future of The Old Man Season 2.


The Old Man Season 2: Production Is Halted Due To Writers Guild Of America Strike

The production for the first season commenced in mid-2019 with Jeff Bridges and the creators bubbling with optimistic views regarding the series. Their excitement didn’t deter them, the safety hazard did. In March 2020, the production shut down for the first time due to the pandemic. It took seven months for the production to reprise only to be halted again due to Bridges’ health issues. He was diagnosed with lymphoma and couldn’t continue filming the remaining couple of scenes.

In February 2022, the shooting commenced again and The Old Man Season 1 aired on Hulu on June 27, 2022. The filming of the second season was initiated shortly after and had to be stopped in May 2023 again. If not the pandemic or health issues, The Old Man isn’t running short of production suspension reasons.

America is currently witnessing one of the most influential strikes in its history. Over 11,000 writers of the Writers Guild of America (WGA) union have decided to put down their pens, shut their laptops and not continue working. WGA is revolting against the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) and demanding their wage be incremented. Moreover, the increasing dominance of AI in the industry has stemmed their revolt.

Will The Old Man Season 2 Survive The Repercussions?

Yes, it would. For a series that has survived so many delays, what’s one more? 

The Old Man Season 2 has millions of eyes set on it, especially after winning five awards and being nominated for 14. Moreover, the cliffhangers left by Season 1 warrant a sequel. In the last season, we were hinted at Chase’s gloomy past with FBI Assistant Director, Harold Harper (John Lithgow). Season 2 will be bursting with Chase’s pets, wild chases and some spicy secrets! Expect the production to begin as soon as the WGA strike sums up and The Old Man Season 2 to drop on Hulu by late 2024 or early 2025.
