AMC’s The Son is poised to make its Season 2 return Saturday, April 27, and TV Insider has your first look with some brand new photos!

Based on Philipp Meyer’s best-selling novel, The Son will wrap up the story of the iconic “First Son of Texas.” In the second season, Eli McCullough (Pierce Brosnan) continues to secure his legacy within the oil industry of the early 1900s, and he’ll go to such lengths as deceit and murder to do so.
