Trivia

In Sept. 2019 Fox gave freshman Prodigal Son a full season order! The network has ordered an additional 9 episodes bringing the show's first season to a total of 22 episodes. The serial killer drama was the most watched new program of premiere week in adults 18-49. See more »

Goofs

The prison cell is not how a serial murderer would be held, and is clearly engineered to facilitate the series' plot points. A tether would prevent the inmate from changing clothes or using a restroom, if there was even one within reach of the tether. And the evidence of his crimes (the journals) certainly wouldn't be in the cell. See more »

Highly derivative but not unenjoyable
27 September 2019 | by toadybleghSee all my reviews

As somebody else said here, Thomas Harris should consider suing. There's no doubt that this show is trying to piggy-back on the success of Hannibal and that Tom Payne's troubled Malcolm Bright is a slim shadow of Hugh Dancy's edgier and more interesting Will Graham. Nevertheless, the production is slick, the writing is solid if patchy in places and the story moves along at a relatively good clip. It's not going to change your life but it's not a terrible way to spend an hour.
