‘Patriot’ Renewed for Season 2 at Amazon

‘Patriot’ Renewed for Season 2 at Amazon
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 series also stars: Emmy winner Terry O’Quinn as Tom Tavner, John’s father and the head of intelligence for the State Department; Kurtwood Smith as Mr. Claret, John’s boss at the piping firm; Kathleen Munroe as Alice, John’s wife; Aliette Opheim as Agathe, a young homicide detective from Luxembourg; and Michael Chernus as Edward Tavner, a

‘Patriot’ Playlist: Listen to the Soundtrack From the One-of-a-Kind Amazon Series and Learn How It Shaped the Show — Watch
While music plays an integral part in most TV shows, the way “Patriot” is built around its original music is as unique as the show itself.

Tracking a N.O.C. — non-official cover — agent who would rather get high and play guitar than save the world, “Patriot” features a number of surprising, insightful songs payed by John Tavner as a way to cope with the stress of his job and the past stress inflicted upon him. While sometimes a little too revealing for his boss’ comfort, the music is moving, charming, and helps define a show as unconventional as it is engaging.

For more on the music and how it was made, watch the exclusive making-of clip below. The video contains behind-the-scenes footage of the recordings, how the music helped bring the characters to life, and how it served as the true inspiration and specific foundation of the show.

TV Review: ‘Patriot’ on Amazon

TV Review: ‘Patriot’ on Amazon
One of the great things about the spy genre is its elasticity: It can accommodate the cerebral melancholy of “The Americans,” the adrenalized immediacy of the Jason Bourne films, the suave adventure of the James Bond movies and the kind of delightful escapism NBC’s “Chuck” provided for five seasons.

What it can’t support, as demonstrated by the insufferable Amazon series “Patriot,” is forced whimsy gone very wrong.

Patriot” at least tries something novel: It transplants the sensibilities of a Wes Anderson film into the world of spies and their associates. Burned-out operative John Tavner (Michael Dorman) gets a job at a Milwaukee firm that is set to take care of Iran’s piping needs, but his secret mission is to prevent the country from making its nuclear program operational. His pragmatic father, Tom (Terry O’Quinn), runs the State Department’s espionage program, and his rather passive brother, Edward

‘Patriot’ Review: Amazon Unveils an Enticingly Strange Anti-Spy Story, Unique Save For One Other Show

‘Patriot’ Review: Amazon Unveils an Enticingly Strange Anti-Spy Story, Unique Save For One Other Show
If you were a fan of “Quarry,” then you’ve got a new show to watch. It may sound a bit odd — unhelpful, even — to recommend a new, under-hyped TV show by comparing it to an old, under-hyped TV show, but the Cinemax series still hoping to achieve cult status (and/or a second season) has quite a bit in common with “Patriot,” Amazon’s latest original drama. And both series deserve the attention of anyone prone to mysterious tales of undercover agents.

To wit: Both series track the lives of men who want to quit their government jobs. Both men are white, quiet types with facial hair who struggle to convey their emotions to friends and family. Both men are suffering from various forms of Ptsd. Both men are forced to keep their jobs (for varying reasons). Both series are set in the past. Both series are told from a unique,

‘Patriot’ Review: Amazon’s Shrewd Spy Satire Will Make You Laugh & Cry

In television, like in life, timing can be everything, and Amazon's February 24-launching Patriot is very much of its time. The Michael Dorman-led genre-defining series is also a welcomed return to high-quality unconventionality for the House of Bezos' streaming service. Having just concluded its world premiere today with a couple of episodes at the Berlin Film Festival, Patriot, as I say in my video review above, is a fun and shrewd farce full of surprises throughout…
