Second Season of Mayor of Kingstown Release Date: Is This Going to Renew This Year?

With a boom, Season 1 of “Mayor of Kingstown” concludes, raising the question of whether there are enough story arcs left unfinished to warrant a Season 2 to follow. “Yellowstone” co-creators Taylor Sheridan and Hugh Dillon (who also stars as Ian) have devised a television series that takes place in the fictional town of Kingstown in Michigan, where there are seven jails within a 10-mile radius. The show’s lead character, Mike McLusky, is played by Jeremy Renner, whose family is involved in the “business of incarceration.”

His role is to act as a liaison between the convicts, their families, law enforcement, and the leaders of the warring factions who are housed in prison.

Mike is bound to the Rust Belt town, which is a violent, desolate hellscape where unhappiness enjoys the company of other miserable people. His desire to leave Kingstown is thwarted by the savage murder of his brother, Mitch (Kyle Chandler), which compels Mike to stand up and negotiate deals to put the lid on a volatile situation while brokering peace between people who are seeking for any reason to act on their darkest impulses. Mike’s life is further complicated by his troubled connection with his mother, Miriam (Dianne Wiest), as well as an old opponent who wants to use him to achieve a secret purpose that Mike is unaware of.

Mayor of Kingstown examines the racial inequities that exist within the American prisons system, and it raises important concerns about cyclical violence and how it might erode empathy, rendering those who are surrounded by violence immune to the atrocities that they witness and experience. Season 1 is a slow-burning drama that culminates in a stunning revolt that has the potential to impact the lives of everyone involved. Here’s everything we know so far about Season 2 of “Mayor of Kingstown.”

When Will Mayor of Kingstown Season 2 Be Released?

The second season of “Mayor of Kingstown” has not been renewed, however, this will likely change shortly. According to Production Weekly (via The Cinemaholic), a second season of “Mayor of Kingstown” is in the works. However, until an official statement is made, we should take that information with a grain of salt.

Furthermore, Sheridan’s sophomore season appears to be virtually dependent on him. In February 2021, he signed a five-year deal with ViacomCBS and MTV Entertainment Group (via The Hollywood Reporter). Sheridan will produce five seasons of new or returning episodes for ViacomCBS brands per year as part of the arrangement, which includes a straight-to-series order for the “Yellowstone” prequel “1883.” “Mayor of Kingstown” was also a part of Sheridan’s purported nine-figure agreement.

“Kansas City,” directed by Sheridan and starring Sylvester Stallone as a New York gangster who takes over the organization’s western area, is expected to begin filming in March. The multihyphenate creator, who appears to only concentrate on one season of a show at a time, is handing over some authority over his projects. He is, however, still writing episodes for two other programs, including “Lioness,” which is about a female CIA operative, and “Land Man,” which is about the West Texas oil boom (via Deadline).

Although “Yellowstone” hasn’t been formally renewed for a fifth season, Deadline stated that filming would begin in May, and the outlet also used language that makes second seasons of “1883” and “Mayor of Kingstown” appears inevitable. “Mayor of Kingstown” has an average audience score of 86 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, despite not being a critical success (32 percent approval among critics). According to Variety, 2.6 million people watched the show’s premiere. If renewed, “Mayor of Kingstown” might begin production in late summer or fall 2022, with new episodes premiering in 2023 at the earliest.

Who Will Appear in Season 2 of Mayor of Kingstown?

Even though “Mayor of Kingstown” has a large ensemble cast, Jeremy Renner is the show’s leading man. During a November interview, the “Hawkeye” star appeared to believe that further seasons of “Mayor of Kingstown” were in his future, according to the New York Times. The rest of the cast, on the other hand, appears to be entirely disposable or underutilized. All bets are off as it’s revealed that Kyle Chandler’s Mitch doesn’t make it past the first episode. Unfortunately, Oscar winner Dianne Wiest, who plays matriarch Miriam McLusky, does not have much screen time. However, if Season 2 goes more into the origins of Mike and Miriam’s strained relationship, that could alter.

Taylor Handley, who played Kyle McLusky on “The O.C.,” is expected to return for a second season because it would be too terrible for Mike to lose two brothers, especially one with a baby on the way. Mike’s Girl Friday, Rebecca (Nichole Galicia), Season 1 standout Bunny (Tobi Bamtefa), and homicide detective Ian are also among the cast members (Hugh Dillon). There are plenty of opportunities to introduce new characters in addition to the anticipated return of these famous supporting performers, given the series’ revolving door of criminals, doomed prison guards, and cops who aren’t long for this world.

Mayor of Kingstown Season 2 Has a Plot

Backstories for the primary characters are more inferred than addressed in Season 1 of “Mayor of Kingstown.” Mike and Mitch are introduced as self-proclaimed advocates for inmates in the early episodes, but this idea is quickly abandoned as Mike deals with countless ongoing vendettas.

How did the McLuskys come to have so much power and influence? What was Mike’s relationship with Milo Sunter (Aidan Gillen) in the past? Mike is a convicted felon, so how does he have unrestricted access to crime scenes? Other than their choice of profession, what motivates Miriam to cut relations with her eldest sons?

How can Mike possibly get away with murdering a house full of criminal motorcyclists and not face any repercussions? What role does Mike play in the town’s recovery from the terrible aftermath of the jail uprising? Instead of stringing together a series of violent encounters between those who relinquish power and the subjugated, Season 2 should address these topics.`

Family, land, legacy, and devotion give a motive for heinous crimes in “Yellowstone.” However, aside from revenge, the reasoning for the actions of the individuals in “Mayor of Kingstown” remains unexplored in this Taylor Sheridan-verse show. Sheridan appears to have sown the seeds for story arcs that will blossom in the future; all fans have to do now is watch them grow.
