Jeremy Renner and Dianne Wiest star in the second season of Paramount Plus’ original drama series Mayor Of Kingstown.
Despite some mixed critical reviews, the drama series ‘Mayor Of Kingstown’ seemed to strike a chord with viewers when it premiered on the Paramount Network in November of last year. Starring Jeremy Renner, the series follows the powerful McLusky family, power brokers in Kingstown, Michigan. It is where the business of incarceration is the only thriving industry. Tackling themes of systemic racism, corruption, and inequality, the series provides a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.
A second season was commissioned almost immediately. And on January 15th in the United States and Canada and on January 16th for viewers in the UK and Australia, we will be able to see the second season when it premieres on Paramount+. The teaser trailer for the second season has been revealed. Let’s check in with the McLuskys to see what they are up to this time:
