Don your mayor’s hat, would you? Sash? Pin? Get ready for another season of “Mayor of Kingstown” to be loaded with crime, corruption, and structural unfairness (I’m highly involved in local politics). If you’ve been looking forward to meeting with Jeremy Renner during office hours because the mayor has been “reelected” for yet another season, you’ve come to the perfect place.
Even though the “Mayor of Kingstown” isn’t based on a real mayor and the show deals more with the prison industrial complex than it does with traditional local politics, it’s still not amusing to make jokes about. Keep reading if you want to learn more about Renner, who ended the first season at the conclusion of a prison uprising, and to learn what’s happening in Kingstown, where seven jails are located within a 10-mile radius. We have all the enticing details you need.
What we know about Mayor of Kingstown season 2 cast and crew
The cast of “Mayor of Kingstown” included Dianne Wiest, who played the mother of the McLusky family, Kyle Chandler, who played the McLusky brother who died in the first episode, Taylor Handley, who played the youngest McLusky brother, Hugh Dillon, who played a detective in the town, Emma Laird, who played Mike’s love interest, Tobi Bamtefa, who played a gang leader, Derek Webster, who played another detective (as a Russian mobster).
The cast is large. We’re all going to experience a lot of surprises, even though I have a sneaking suspicion that some of them won’t make it to season 2 (especially Kyle Chandler’s character, who is unquestionably already dead). Kingstown is a dangerous location where you never know what might be waiting for you around the corner, or in the next cell block.
What we think Mayor of Kingstown season 2 will be about
That is, after all, the million dollar mayor question. In the first season, Mike McLusky (Renner) took on the role of his older brother as the unofficial mayor of Kingstown, acting as a liaison between the prisoners and those in control of the town’s numerous prisons. McLusky is still alive at the end of season 1 (unlike his brother), but he’s clearly suffered after enduring a horrific jail uprising that was mostly his fault. Additionally, his love interest nearly gets eaten by a bear.
In addition to the two large monsters at the conclusion of season 1 (the riot and the bear, of course), McLusky must deal with all the side dealings and shady business that are inherent in his exceedingly odd employment. Will he be able to learn from his errors? Will he get the hell out of Dodge and leave them all behind? I’ll say “maybe” and “no.” They will undoubtedly need to change the show’s name if McLusky quits Kingstown, and who has time for that kind of rebranding?
When and where to watch Mayor of Kingstown
Taylor Sheridan and Hugh Dillon collaborated on “Mayor of Kingstown,” and since Sheridan is the creator of “Yellowstone” and its prequel series “1883,” you can be sure that this is a Paramount+ exclusive. The television series produced by Sheridan (which also includes “Kansas City” starring Sylvester Stallone) are tightly integrated into Paramount’s streaming strategy, and that won’t change any time soon. Hell, Paramount+ is undoubtedly making a reputation for itself in the world of gritty, family-oriented prestige television, and “Mayor of Kingstown” is no exception. The basic conclusion is that, even if the season 2 launch date hasn’t been set in stone, you’ll want to watch Paramount+ to catch the most recent episode.
