It’s hard to find a show like “Lodge 49” anywhere else on TV. Part family drama, part metaphysical journey through distant reaches of Southern California, part bureaucracy-based mystery, the AMC show is unapologetically its own.
So, with Season 2 on the horizon next month, it’s no surprise that it looks like the show is continuing to clear its own singular path. Wyatt Russell reprises his role as Dud, a wayward young guy looking for healing in more ways than one. With the help of his sister Liz (Sonya Cassidy), he manages to stay afloat and out of trouble, even while trying to preserve his late father’s legacy.
Of course, the show wouldn’t be complete without more time spent in the building/organization/mystical haven that gives the show its name. Season 2 arrives with more chances to see the daily exploits of Lodge members Ernie (Brent Jennings), Blaise (David Pasquesi), Connie (Linda Emond), and Scott (Eric Allan Kramer).
Maybe they’ll all find new layers of meaning along their respective journeys. Either way, there’ll be plenty of tiny breakthroughs along the way.
Watch the trailer for the new season:
“Lodge 49” Season 2 premieres Monday, August 12 after the debut of “The Terror: Infamy.”

With the prospect of the family pool supply location being occupied by new tenants, Dud remains undeterred.
You know who’s living his absolute best life in Season 2? Ernie.
Liz faces yet another shift in her professional life, as she continues to move from a life under the debt left behind by her father.
It appears that Scott has reached the “Roam the Streets of Long Beach in Lodge Attire” stage of a rough spiral.
After some of the key revelations at the end of last season, Connie continues her pursuit of answers.
After discovering the remains of a past leader in the Lodge last season, you’d think these three would be a little more prepared for surprises.
Don’t underestimate Liz’s ability to track down people who have wronged her.
Not even a shark attack can keep the Dudley family down. Long live the donut shop and long live family-owned pool supply establishments.
