Paramount+ today announced the premiere date for the anticipated Mayor of Kingstown Season 2. The second season of the original drama series will debut on Sunday, January 15, 2023.
Mayor of Kingstown Season 2 will premiere exclusively on the Paramount+ service in the U.S. and Canada, and the following day in the U.K. and Australia. Premiere dates for other Paramount+ international markets will be announced at a later date.
An accompanying teaser (see below) was also released, featuring series stars Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner and Academy Award winner Dianne Wiest, previewing the aftermath of the prison riot from the first season’s finale.
From co-creator and Academy Award nominee Taylor Sheridan and Hugh Dillon, Mayor of Kingstown follows the McLusky family, power brokers in Kingstown, Mich., where the business of incarceration is the only thriving industry.
Tackling themes of systemic racism, corruption and inequality, the series provides a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.
The series also stars Hugh Dillon, Taylor Handley, Emma Laird, Tobi Bamtefa, Derek Webster, Nishi Munshi, Hamish Allan-Headley and Aidan Gillen.
Produced by MTV Entertainment Studios, 101 Studios and Bosque Ranch Productions, Mayor of Kingstown Season 2 is executive produced by Sheridan, Dillon, Renner, Antoine Fuqua, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari, Michael Friedman, Dave Erickson, Regina Corrado and Stephen Kay.
