Tom Payne will reprise Malcolm Bright’s character, and Michael Sheen will be back in action as a serial killer Dr. Martin Whitly. Joining them will be Bellamy Young as Jessica Whitly (Malcolm’s mother) and Halston Sage as Ainsley Whitly (Malcolm’s sister).

Prodigal Son Season 2: What To Expect?

Although the creators haven’t revealed what they are planning to do with the characters in the next season, recently, Chris Fedak and Sam Sklaver disclosed some details. According to them, they want to see the world through their characters’ eyes. So, the next chapter would likely focus on people close to Malcolm (that means his family). The first season revolved around the theme “What if your father is a serial killer?”

Now, possibly the theme would shift to “What if your husband is a serial killer?” watching the world with Malcolm’s mother Jessica’s eyes. Then things would be completely different than what you have seen in the first season. However, currently, they are in discussion with the team about how things would change in the next season. In the previous season, Malcolm’s sister Ainsley unintentionally killed Nicholas Endicott. Perhaps it’s possible the upcoming season deal with Ainsley demons.
