“That’s three. Any more you send at me, I’m sending back in bags. Anyone you send to my kid, I’m sending back in pieces. Do you recognize me now?”
A best-seller book adaption into a TV series that has gained a 97% Rotten Tomatoes rating and 7.6 out of 10 IMDb ratings? Well, The Old Man has the potential for that! On the other hand, Jeff Bridges, as Dan Chase, has done right by the novel, and as a reader, we are happy! His story is compelling. Maybe that’s why the audience has been hooked by it. Since it’s been months since the renewal news got out, fans are running out of patience. Their curiosity to know The Old Man Season 2 expected release date compelled us to predict!

When can we expect The Old Man Season 2 release?
Before we start digging further to find our answers, let’s take a moment to appreciate the crew who made the series possible. All thanks to Jonathan E. Steinberg and Robert Levine for creating such a fabulous series. However, it wouldn’t have been possible without Thomas Perry, who wrote the novel on which the series is based. Also, big thanks to the amazing cast members who made their characters stand out. Now that we are done with appreciation let’s head back to the main topic, The Old Man Season 2 expected release date.

Before we start laying our answer, we should probably take a history lesson. The series first came out on June 16, 2022. However, it was announced by FX in July 2019. Moving forward, the show did well while airing its seven episodes, and fans were quick to start requesting renewal. Luckily, FX didn’t wait that long and renewed The Old Man Season 2 on June 27, 2022. When the first season finale aired on July 21, 2022, our guess would have been fall 2023 if the filming schedule had gone as planned.
By schedule, we meant The Old Man Season 2 filming date, which was fixed to begin in May 2023. However, due to the WGA( Writers Guild of America Strike) strike, the filming has been delayed, and so have our hopes for release in the fall season. So when can we expect its release exactly? It’s hard to guess since now we aren’t dealing with the WGA strike only. Actors strike have joined forces, and the kind of pressure these strikes put on the Production houses is intense. While we do understand the pressure and the valid demands of everyone, it seems like a long road to settlement.
So, we can believe that The Old Man Season 2 will probably air in the second half of 2024 or by early 2025. Let’s hope for the strikes to get settled as soon as possible so that we are gifted with another action-packed installment. It was also heard that five scripts for the second season were previously completed. The fifth one needed a rewrite, which was affected by the writers’ strike. However, you would have already assumed this because of the scheduled filming dates. The script was supposed to be ready before May 2023, so we can assume that the script is already ready.
Now, for those who haven’t watched the ending yet, Spoiler alert! We do know that Season 1’s finale ended with Dan Chase and Harold Harper working together to save Angela/Emily after Faraz Hamzad kidnapped her. The Old Man Season 2 will pick up right from there, with potential flashbacks delving deeper into Dan and Harold’s experiences in Afghanistan.
Several questions have made the fans eager. Some of them are: Will Dan be able to rescue his daughter Angela from the clutches of Faraz Hamzad? Will Harold join forces with Dan or betray him? Will Zoe and the dogs return? No confirmation or answer has been received on these questions, as they can only be given via The Old Man Season 2. Let’s see how long we have to wait for that to arrive. Until then, enjoy the first season trailer and stay updated with us!
