'Lodge 49' season 2: Release date, plot, cast, trailer, and everything you need to know about the mystical comedy
Expect more experimental comedy in the 'modern fable' that chronicles Californian surfer Dud in his journey to get his life together after the death of his father
When the first season of Jim Gavin's AMC show 'Lodge 49' premiered last year, it became a hit for its experimental quirks and the light-hearted comedy sprinkled over its mystical core. Expect that and more as the show returns with a brand new second season starring season one's Wyatt Russell and Brent Jennings, according to an announcement by AMC earlier in July. Here's all you need to know about the upcoming season:
'Lodge 49' season two premieres on AMC on Monday, August 12 at 10 pm ET, so stay tuned right in!
Described as a "modern fable", the show chronicles Californian surfer Dud in his journey to get his life together after the death of his father. This is also around the same time he was bitten by a mysterious snake in South America. Eventually Dud reaches the titular Lodge 49 of the Fraternal Order of the Lynx, on his path towards finding meaning in life. Lodge 49 has been described as this Freemason-esque secret society that packs complicated mythology from other worlds. But its main attraction is how it's the place to be for working-class beach folk to while away time over a couple of beers.
Jim Gavin, the series creator, is the author of 'Middle Men' (Simon & Schuster). His fiction has also appeared on several reputed publications, details AMC's official website. "I feel so lucky to be working with AMC, which has shown such faith in 'Lodge 49', and I can’t wait to jump back in with our amazing cast," Gavin had said of the renewal. Gavin created and writes the series, while Peter Ocko serves as showrunner with Dan Carey, Jeff Freilich, and Paul Giamatti serving as producers.
Wyatt Russell, the American actor and former ice hockey player, plays the role of Sean "Dud" Dudley, who's an ex-surfer looking to lead a happy life after he discovers Lodge 49. Brent Jennings joins the cast as Ernie Fontaine, a plumbing salesman and member of Lodge 49, and Sonya Cassidy plays Liz Dudley, Dud's twin sister who works as a waitress. Along with Russell, Jennings, and Cassidy, this season’s cast includes Linda Emond (as Connie), Eric Allan Kramer (as Scott) and David Pasquesi (as Blaise).
The trailer for 'Lodge 49's second season came out recently and among other things, Dud still doesn't know where the door leads to. Fun! Check out the full clip below:
