Mayor of Kingstown Season 2: Scheduled Release Date on Paramount!

“Mayor of Kingstown” Season 1 concludes with a bang and begs the question, “Are there enough story arcs left unfinished to warrant a Season 2?”

The series is set in Kingstown, Michigan, where there are seven prisons within a 10-mile radius, and was created by “Yellowstone” co-creators Taylor Sheridan and Hugh Dillon (who also plays Ian).

Jeremy Renner plays Mike McLusky, whose family is in the “business of incarceration.” Mike’s job is to act as a liaison between the prisoners, their families, law enforcement, and the warring factions behind bars.

Mike is bound to the Rust Belt town, a violent, desolate wasteland where misery enjoys company.

He longs to flee Kingstown, but the brutal murder of his brother, Mitch (Kyle Chandler), forces Mike to step up, wrangling deals to keep the lid on a powder keg and brokering peace between people who are only looking for any excuse to act on their darkest impulses.

Mike’s life is further complicated by his strained relationship with his mother, Miriam (Dianne Wiest), and an old adversary who wants to use him to further an unknown agenda.

“Mayor of Kingstown” investigates the racial inequalities of the American corrections system and raises intriguing questions about cyclical violence and how it erodes empathy, desensitizing those who are surrounded by violence to its horrors.

Season 1 is a slow burn that culminates in a shocking uprising that promises to change everyone involved’s lives. Here’s everything we know about Season 2 of “Mayor of Kingstown.”

The plot of Mayor of Kingstown Season 2

We are taken inside a shocking prison riot in the season 1 finale, following a season of brewing discontent within the prisons that Mike, as their appointed ‘advocate,’ failed to de-escalate.


The riot quickly spirals out of control, with prisoners, prison guards, and police officers all receiving bullets — including the riot’s ringleader, P-Dog, who is shot and killed.

Although the riot is over, it appears that the aftermath of the events and how they affected the main characters will be a key plot point in the upcoming second season.

Although Mike and his brother Kyle survive the riot, they have both experienced significant trauma. Kyle had a panic attack in the prison’s sewers, while Mike, who had already seen a lot, returned home to find Iris had narrowly avoided a bear attack.

The lingering mental and physical effects of the riot, such as what it means for Mike’s unofficial position as Mayor of Kingstown, will undoubtedly be a major plot point moving forward.

It also appears likely that we will see more of Mike’s strained relationships with his mother and Milo, in addition to Iris. Throughout season 1, it’s become clear that Mike and Milo have a long history, but there’s still a lot left unsaid about their relationship.

Given that Milo was able to sneak out of prison undetected during the riot, it’s likely that he’ll cause even more chaos on the outside, and we may get to learn more about the pair’s complicated history.

The cast of Mayor of Kingstown Season 2

As the show’s heart, it’s a given that Jeremy Renner will reprise his role as Mike McLusky alongside his on-screen mother, Dianne Wiest. We can also expect Taylor Handley to return as Mike’s younger brother to round out the McLusky family.

Tobi Bamtefa and Emma Laird will also return as Iris, a sex worker and Mike’s love interest. Hugh Dillon (as a Kingstown detective), Emma Laird (as an escort and Mike’s love interest), Tobi Bamtefa (as a gang leader and Mike’s closest friend).

Derek Webster (as another detective), Hamish Allan-Headley (as a police sergeant), Pha’rez Lass (as an incarcerated gang leader), and Aidan Gillen play the characters (as a Russian mobster).

Speculation on the Release Date of Mayor of Kingstown Season 2

One thing is certain: the second season of Mayor of Kingstown is on the way. Production on the second season began in December 2021, according to Production Weekly, and the show was officially renewed on February 1, 2022, according to Paramount Plus.

Season 2 of Mayor of Kingstown will begin filming “soon,” according to a CBS Pittsburgh article from April 2022.

Assuming they do the same number of episodes as season one, we don’t expect filming and post-production to take more than 6-8 months, which means we should have season 2 of Mayor of Kingstown by the end of 2022.

Can I Watch Mayor of Kingstown Season 2 Online?

Mayor of Kingstown season 2 will be available exclusively on the streaming service as a Paramount Plus exclusive.

Although the service is already available in the United States, it will not be available in the United Kingdom until this summer — but Mayor of Kingstown season 2 is unlikely to be released before then.

Meanwhile, UK residents can sign up for updates on when Paramount Plus will be available in their country, while US residents can watch the first season on the platform right now.

When Paramount Plus launches in the UK, it appears likely that season 1 of Mayor of Kingstown will be available to stream immediately, regardless of whether season 2 is complete.
