The MCU actor Jeremy Renner starrer iconic series Mayor of Kingston, is coming back with a Mayor of Kingstown Season 2. Find out what to expect from Mayor of Kingston Season 2.
One of the premiere episodes alone garnered 2.6 million streams, with Hawkeye leading an ensemble cast to explore the dark underbelly of the carceral system. At the heart of the Mayor of Kingstown lies a family, the McLuskys, who have turned the prison system into a reliable source of income by having members of the McLusky family act as the unofficial mayors of Kingstown’s prisons.
Taking care of prisoners and law enforcers off the radar, the family is always teetering on the line between justice and corruption. Let us answer your questions about what’s next for the residents of this murky town after season one ends.
So, let’s get started, shall we?
Mayor of Kingstown 2 Release Date: When can we expect it to come out?
Even though we don’t have a definite release date at the moment, Mayor of Kingstown season 2 is definitely coming; that much is certain. According to the December 2021 issue of Production Weekly, production had begun on the second season, and Paramount Plus officially announced the renewal on February 1, 2022.
Additionally, according to a CBS Pittsburgh report from April 2022, the second season of The Mayor of Kingstown will start filming “soon.” This suggests that since we expect there to be the same number of episodes that were in the first season. It is possible that we will see the second season by the end of 2022.
Mayor of Kingstown Season 2 Cast: Who’s Coming Back?
The show’s heart, Jeremy Renner’s role as Mike McLusky, is a given. Along with him, Dianne Wiest’s role as his on-screen mother will definitely be coming back. Additionally, Taylor Handley will return as Mike’s younger brother to complete the McLusky family.
Also returning are Tobi Bamtefa and Emma Laird as Iris, a sex worker and Mike’s love interest. In addition to Hugh Dillon (as a Kingstown detective). We expect Emma Laird is Mike’s love interest and Tobi Bamtefa is Mike’s closest friend. So, all of them are coming back as well.
Likewise, police detectives Hamish Allan-Headley, Pha’rez Lass, and Aidan Gillen play the characters (a Russian mobster).
So, we are expecting the following cast right now:
- As Mike McLusky, Jeremy Renner
- Dianne Wiest in the role of Miriam McLusky
- The actor Taylor Handley plays Kyle McLusky
- Hugh Dillon portrays Ian
- Emma Laird in the role of Iris
- Bamtefa as Deverin’ Bunny’ Washington
- Derek Webster plays Stevie
- Hamish Allan-Headley plays Robert
- Aidan Gillen in the role of Milo Sunter
Mayor of Kingstown Season 2 Storyline: How’s the Plot going to unfold?
Towards the end of Season 1, a prison riot breaks out after a season of simmering tension within the prisons that Mike was unable to resolve. As the riot escalates, prison guards, police officers, and prisoners all find themselves on the receiving end of bullets, including the riot’s ringleader, P-Dog, who is shot dead.
Even though the riots are over, but the aftermath and how the main characters are affected will likely be a major plot point in the upcoming second season. Although Mike and his brother Kyle survive the riot, they have experienced their fair share of trauma. In the prison sewers, Kyle had a panic attack, while Mike returned to find that Iris had narrowly avoided a bear attack.
Mike’s unofficial title as Mayor of Kingstown, as well as the longer-term psychological effects of the riot, will undoubtedly be a major plot point moving forward. There is also a possibility that we will see more of Mike’s fractured relationship with Iris. As well as with his mother and Milo.
Mike and Milo have established a long history throughout season 1. But there is a lot that has yet to be revealed about their relationship. Considering Milo also managed to escape jail undetected during the riot. There’s a good chance he will cause even more chaos outside, and we might just be able to discover more about the pair’s complicated history.
