The Old Man Season 2 Release Date Updates
The first season of the thriller series was recently released on June 16, 2022. So far, two episodes of the series have been released, with a running time of around an hour each. Well, it’s not just two episodes, it is two breathtaking episodes that have literally left the audience on the edge of the mountain. The story centres around Dan Chase, who is a former CIA operative who has taken off for a few years. But he was pulled out of his shelter when he gets to know about an assassin, and he decides to solve the puzzle.
Since the series has just been released, we can’t really tell anything about the second season of the series. Going by the audience review, which is positive so far, renewing for a second season is actually a good idea. An old man as a CIA being the hero of the series is not a daily series kinda thing. So even if the creators decide to take season 2, it’s quite sure that it might be a success. But let’s not make assumptions, let’s wait for the creators to decide on it. Till then, let’s enjoy the first season.
