AMC’s original series “The Son,” based on the best-selling book by Philipp Meyer that follows the rise of a Texas family from the Comanche raids of the 1840s to the oil boom of the 20th century, returned to Austin in January to film scenes for its second season. 

Once again, the crew set up to film inside and on the lawn of the Pierre Bremond House, which is next door to TCTA Headquarters (the John Bremond Jr. House). TCTA owns both historic buildings, and staff enjoyed catching glimpses of the cast and crew as they filmed.

As a thank you, the production company sent TCTA an autographed photo of series star Pierce Brosnan. The photo is now on display at headquarters. The show’s second season will premiere later this year on AMC. Season 1 is available now on Hulu, Amazon, iTunes and Google Play.
