“Patriot” has been renewed for Season 2 at Amazon, Variety has learned.
The first season followed the complicated life of intelligence officer John Tavner (Michael 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–who also writes and directs on the series–James Parriott, Glenn Ficarra, John Requa, Charles Gogolak, and Gil Bellows.
