A skeptical female clinical psychologist joins a priest-in-training and a blue-collar contractor as they investigate supposed miracles, demonic possession, and other extraordinary occurrences to see if there's a scientific explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work.
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 »
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 »
Michael Sheen as a manipulative serial killer father? Win. Messed up son as anti hero? Pure win. Some of the dialog, particularly for Malcolm was a little on the nose, but that is a common issue in pilots before the writers and actors have really worn the character in so I expect that problem will be quickly resolved. The performances are great and effecting. The fan-girl M.E reminded me strongly of Molly Hooper in Sherlock which I quite liked but others might find irritating if she becomes a regular feature. I expect Malcolm/Dani will play out as the main focus for romance/shipping and the set up of hardened female detective developing empathy for broken genius, friends to lovers will follow a tried and true formula. Still, formulas work for a reason. Its familiar and we love it. I look forward to more of this.
