AMC Renews Modern Fable Lodge 49


Ahead of its season one finale, AMC has renewed Lodge 49 for a second season, which will have ten new episodes in 2019.

Wyatt Russell (Black Mirror, Everybody Wants Some) will reprise his lead role as Sean “Dud” Dudley. Creator, writer and executive producer Jim Gavin returns, as does Peter Ocko (Pushing Daisies, The Office) as executive producer and showrunner.

Lodge 49 is an AMC Studios production.

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.’”

Lodge 49 is a joy to make. Its passionate audience seems to have caught on that there’s nothing else like it on TV,” said Ocko. “Jim and I are thrilled to keep telling these stories and are lucky to have found such an incredibly supportive home at AMC.”

“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,” said Gavin.
