Amazon has renewed its original drama series Patriot for a second season.
Starring Michael Dorman (Wonderland), Emmy winner Terry O’Quinn (Lost), Kurtwood Smith (That 70’s Show) and Michael Chernus (Orange is the New Black), the first season follows the complicated life of intelligence officer John Tavner (Dorman).
His latest assignment is to prevent Iran from going nuclear, requiring him to forgo all safety nets and assume a perilous “non-official cover”—that of a mid-level employee at a Midwestern industrial piping firm.
A bout with PTSD, the Federal government’s incompetence and the intricacies of keeping a day job in the “front” industrial piping company cause a barrage of ever-escalating fiascos that jeopardize Tavner’s mission.
The second season will be executive produced by show creator Steven Conrad (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), who also writes and directs on the series, James Parriott (Grey’s Anatomy), Glenn Ficarra (Crazy Stupid Love, This Is Us), John Requa (Crazy Stupid Love, This Is Us), Charles Gogolak (This is Us), and Gil Bellows (Temple Grandin).
Customers can currently watch the first season online at Amazon.com/PatriotTV.
