Paramount+ has dropped the full trailer for Mayor of Kingstown Season 2. There is everything in the chaos for Mike McLusky. He continues to settle in as mayor for being a part of a powerful power broker family, he faces many challenges of bringing order to a city without a proper power structure. The series has thus far tackled issues of systemic racism, mass incarceration, and corruption, but the second run is gearing up for a whole new level tackling issues of police brutality on top of everything else.
Mike will have face-to-face combat with reality. Kingstown is facing a dire situation following the violent prison riot at the end of Season 1. There’s no real order of leadership set up to prevent something that’s happening again. Mike is the only one that can put something in place. This is the chaos at the moment, but he’s willing to do whatever it takes and work whatever backroom deals need to be done to keep everything under control. Even he’s starting to reach the breaking point though.
