AMC has handed out a second season renewal to “modern fable” drama Lodge 49. The series, which initially airs on this side of the pond on Amazon Prime Video UK rather than AMC Global, will return in 2019 with a further ten episodes.
Lodge 49 is described as a light-hearted, endearing modern fable set in Long Beach, California about a disarmingly optimistic local ex-surfer, Dud, who’s drifting after the death of his father and collapse of the family business. The drama series is produced by AMC Studios and stars Wyatt Russell, Brent Jennings, Sonya Cassidy, Linda Emond, David Pasquesi, and Eric Allan Kramer.
“Lodge 49 tells a funny, wise and meaningful story that immediately and deeply resonated with critics and viewers alike,” said David Madden, President of Programming for AMC, SundanceTV, and AMC Studios. “With a talented cast including Wyatt Russell, Brent Jennings and Sonya Cassidy, along with our strong creative team led by Jim Gavin and Peter Ocko, we are particularly proud of this series from both an AMC network and AMC Studios perspective and are looking forward to a return trip to the ‘Lodge.’”
