The new thriller will return for Season 2.
July 27, 2018
AT&T Audience Network announced today that Condor has been picked up for a second season. Premiering last month, the book and movie-based thriller is off to a solid start through its first seven episodes, with critics praising its acheivement in updating the spy story from its source material.
Inspired by the novel "Six Days of the Condor" by James Grady and the 1975 Sydney Pollack film "Three Days of the Condor," the series follows conflicted CIA operative Joe Turner, who makes a discovery that results in his entire office being killed. Forced to go on the run as the only remaining survivor, Joe must now fight for his life and find out the truth about this conspiracy in order to stop whoever is behind it from fulfilling their deadly goal that threatens potentially millions of people.
Look for Season 2 of Condor in 2019.
"In January 2020, due to the 'shuttering' of Audience, HBO Max Chief Content Officer Kevin Reilly stated that the second season has been placed in limbo and it is currently unknown if the series will return and, if it does, on what network it will run."
Characters were doing incredibly dumb things. Joe, the main character, was clever and smart in the movie but here in the series he just fumbles around. There was a trail of bodies that Joe couldn't possibly have caused that should have told the CIA that he was innocent and yet he is pursued by the CIA until the last episode. The show wasted time on backstories of characters viewers didn't even care about.
Almost all the major characters were killed. Now it seems season 2 will be about Joe, the female assassin that sought to kill him, and Joe's plot to get revenge against the rogue elements in the CIA that tried to frame him.
What a disappointment.
These light summer series should just do their job of entertaining their audience and then go away leaving a pleasant memory. Instead the Audience network is milking it for bucks.
Finally a renewal amongst so many un-justified cancellations.
I was surprised and disappointed with the death of the Kathy character (played by Katherine Cunningham), I really felt for him.
A great show, a great take on the classic film.
Very much looking forward to the Gabrielle Joubert character's end.
