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 »

An enjoyable show
24 September 2019 | by bonitawatergirlSee all my reviews

I normally stay away from anything "horror" related. But, I am a criminal minds fan. Yes, I knew that it looked very silence of the lambs in the beginning, but I stuck with it and was thoroughly entertained. Michael Sheen was amazing! I hope the rest of the season continues this well.
