The high-intensity crime series, Mayor Of Kingstown, Starring Jeremy Renner, will soon start airing its second season. Mayor Mike had the most chaotic experience last season when all the inmates took control and got the national guards involved.
This time, the show’s back at it with the dreary yet raw representation of corruption, crime, and discrimination of inmates. The trailer promises a similar, if not a more absorbing storyline, as Mike will be continuing doing his work to create peace in a town that barely has any of it.
Mayor Of Kingstown was first seen on Paramount+ on 14th November 2021. Being the brainchild of Taylor Sheridan and Hugh Dillon, the show expectedly had thrilling and absorbing scenes that we usually see in other shows by these creators, such as Yellowstone, Tulsa King, and 1883 to name a few.
The show has gathered much appreciation from its viewers, especially for the acting portrayed by Jeremy Renner. A year after the first season was aired, the increasing popularity led to the announcement of a second season in 2022, which will be premiering this week.

Mayor Of Kingstown Season 1: Recap
The first season focuses on the significance of the McLusky family. The brothers, Mike and Mitch, are responsible for maintaining the peace between prisoners and the higher authorities. This includes gangs and troublemakers as well. Kingstown is a place that has a large number of incarcerated people, most of whom are treated disrespectfully behind the cells. They are shown to be victims of racism and discrimination.
The job of the McLucky brothers is to twist and bend the law to help those in need. Mitch ends up getting killed in the process when he is on his way to collect Milo’s secret cash. Milo is a powerful inmate who often asks Mitch to do his work.
After Mitch’s death, Mike contemplates leaving the business, but he eventually becomes the town’s mayor himself. Unlike Mitch, Mike has a rougher way of doing things. The only friend-like figure he has is Bunny, a local gang leader who has many connections.
When Mike fails to be the way Mitch was with Milo, he starts to create chaos within the prison walls. Mitch had been the only thing that held it all in place. In his way, Mike manages to bring temporary peace for a while.
However, things soon go out of hand as prisoners are freed and start assaulting the cops. They kill many of Mike’s close partners and almost kill his brother Kyle. The National Guards are called to take control of the situation. After many deaths and shootings, the war between the soldiers and the inmates ends with a blurry outcome.
