FX has officially renewed The Old Man for season 2.

The Old Man is an American drama thriller television series based on the 2017 novel The Old Man by Thomas Perry. It was developed by Jonathan E. Steinberg and Robert Levine and premiered on FX on June 16, 2022. The first season consists of seven episodes. Following its premiere, the series was renewed for a second season.
Shooting the series was two-thirds complete when production shut down in mid-March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Production resumed in late 2020 with three episodes remaining to film, but was soon halted when Bridges was diagnosed with lymphoma in October 2020 and departed for cancer treatment. The show stayed in production for a short period after his diagnosis to shoot scenes from the remaining episodes that do not feature his character. In September 2021, he announced his cancer was in remission. Production ultimately resumed in February 2022. On June 27, 2022, the series was renewed for a second season.

The Old Man, by the most simplistic nature of the title, suggests that it refers to The Big Lebowski's Jeff Bridges' character, Dan Chase. However, it is slowly revealed throughout the season that it's a far more ambiguous title that can be applied to many characters and in many ways. Chase is certainly a literal "old man", but is also The Old Man of Emily/Angela in the patriarchal sense of the word. By contrast, Harper is also a father figure to Emily/Angela, making him The Old Man as well. In The Old Man season 1, episode 6, Harper calls Hamzad "The Old Man", likening him to the man that's orchestrating all the chaos around them. As it's discovered in the finale, however, Hamzad is also The Old Man in a fatherly sense, too, as he is revealed to be Emily/Angela's birth father. Lastly, The Old Man could refer to Morgan Bote, the shadowy ex-CIA head who trained both Chase and Harper as his surrogate sons within the organization. Any way it's utilized, The Old Man has many meanings that go beyond just a clever nickname for the lead character.
