Fox announced today that Prodigal Son has been picked up for a second season. The good news arrives less than a month after the drama's freshman run, which put in a solid showing ratings-wise despite drawing somewhat mixed reviews.

Tom Payne stars in the series as Malcolm Bright, a criminal psychologist with a special gift of knowing how the minds of killers work. This is because in the 1990s, his dad was a notorious serial killer known as "The Surgeon." He uses his ability to help the NYPD solve crimes and stop killers, all while dealing with his manipulative mother, played by Bellamy Young, and homicidal father, played by Michael Sheen, who is still looking to bond with his prodigal son.

Look for Season 2 of Prodigal Son during the 2020-2021 season.
