7. The Son season 2

The Son on AMC

Based on Philipp Meyer's New York Times best-selling and Pulitzer Prize finalist novel of the same name, The Son is a multi-generational saga about the birth of America and the rise and fall of the McCullough’s, a Texas ranching and oil family.

The show stars Pierce Brosnan as Eli McCullough, Henry Garrett (Pete McCullough), Paola Nunez (Maria Garcia), Sydney Lucas (Jeannie McCullough) and Jacob Lofland (Young Eli).

Season 2 finds Eli McCullough battling his most formidable enemy yet — a powerful business interest that will threaten his brood, legacy and burgeoning empire.

In the midst of this growing storm, Eli’s son, Pete, returns home and brings more strain to the complicated internal dynamic. Meanwhile, in 1851, Young Eli is now a married man and a respected warrior among the Comanches, but when tragedy strikes his already stressed band, he is forced into a leadership position.

Broadening the scope, 1988 is introduced, bringing the McCullough saga into the more immediate past.  Here, at 85 years old, Jeanne Anne McCullough is forced to come to terms with a long-buried family secret. Throughout the season each member of the family will be forced to confront the sins of their past and adapt to a rapidly changing and unwelcoming world.

The Son season 2 is coming soon.
