‘Lodge 49’ is an American comedy tv series that airs on AMC show and has been inspired by the novella ‘The Crying of Lot 49’ by Thomas Pynchon. Produced in Georgia, the USA, it is created by Jim Gavin. The story revolves around an ex-surfer who joins a fraternal lodge (that offers cheap beer and strange philosophies) after the death of his father and the collapse of his family business. AMC had struggled for a long time to find a show with the right mix of humor, drama, and weirdness. And ‘Lodge 49’ is just the apt addition to its catalog which successfully defines this genre.
After receiving quite a good amount of favorable reviews from its audience after the release of the first season, ‘Lodge 49’ was renewed for a second installment. Here is everything we know about the latest season.
Lodge 49 Cast: Who’s in it?
The AMC show stars Wyatt Russell (in the lead role) as the protagonist — Sean Dudley aka Dud, a true California dude. All he wanted to do in life was to surf in the mornings, help his father with his job of cleaning swimming pools for the rest of the day, and indulge in some chilling at night. He is the founder of Lodge 49 and looks forward to leading a happy, carefree life.
Joining Dud is Brent Jennings as Ernie Fontaine, a plumbing salesman and long-term member of Lodge 49. Sonya Cassidy is Liz Dudley, Dud’s twin sister, who works as a waitress. Linda Emond plays Connie Clark, an old-school journalist and the wife of Scott. She is also a member of the lodge. Eric Allan Kramer enacts the character of Scott Wright, a Long Beach Port Harbor Patrol officer and a straight shooter. He is married to Connie. David Pasquesi stars as Blaise St. John, a bartender at Lodge 49 and runs his own pot dispensary. He believes in the philosophy of alchemy.
The above actors constitute the lead cast of ‘Lodge 49’. Season 2 of the series sees all of the above stars returning to reprise their original roles.
