AMC’s just released a new trailer, poster, and photos in support of the upcoming premiere of season two of Lodge 49. The second season of the critically acclaimed comedy/drama will premiere on August 12, 2019, with new episodes airing on Sundays at 10pm ET/PT.
The cast is led by Wyatt Russell as Sean “Dud” Dudley, Brent Jennings as Ernie, and Sonya Cassidy as Liz. Linda Emond plays Connie, Eric Allan Kramer is Scott, and David Pasquesi plays Blaise.
The series was created by Jim Gavin (Author, Middle Men). Gavin writes and executive produces with showrunner Peter Ocko (Pushing Daisies, The Office). Paul Giamatti (Billions, Sideways, Outsiders), Dan Carey (John Dies at the End, All Is Bright) and Jeff Freilich (Halt and Catch Fire, Grace and Frankie) also serve as executive producers.
Lodge 49 is a modern fable set in Long Beach and centered on Dud (Russell), a likable ex-surfer who attempts to maintain his positive outlook on life while still reeling from the death of his father, the collapse of the family business, and any semblance of the idyllic middle-class life he knew. Dud finds himself deposited by fate at the doorstep of Lodge 49, home to the Ancient and Benevolent Order of the Lynx, a dusty dying fraternal order. Dud finds solace in this dark, mysterious retreat, which offers cheap beer and strange alchemical philosophies. There he meets his mentor, Ernie Fontaine, a “Luminous Knight” of the Order, who sells plumbing supplies by day.
Despite the constant pushback from his more skeptical, pragmatic twin sister, Liz (Cassidy), Dud and Ernie (Jennings) find themselves drawn by the Lodge into some long-buried secrets and modern day conspiracies. Through his newfound connection with the Lodge, its mysteries and its people, Dud comes to find the missing sense of purpose in his life and confront his deepest fears and greatest hopes.
Season two finds the Ancient and Benevolent Order of the Lynx suffering under new rule by an ill-suited leader. Despite his “Knight” and mentor Ernie’s lost faith, and his twin sister Liz’s struggle with their past, Dud believes he is the key to restoring the Lodge to its former grandeur and putting the rightful king on the throne.
