Has the FX series been renewed or cancelled?

The old man’s The first season is about to end on Thursday.

The drama, based on Thomas Perry’s best-selling novels, sees Jeff Bridges play a grizzled ex-agent named Dan Chase who goes on the run after being targeted by an assassin.

The only problem is that being forced out of hiding also draws Chase’s attention to FBI Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Harold Harper (John Lithgow).

While the series has kept viewers on the edge of their seats for seven episodes, fans might well be wondering if there will be more in store for Chase.
