“Mayor of Kingstown follows the McLusky family, power brokers in Kingstown, Mich., 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.”
Season 2 of Mayor of Kingstown makes its exclusive Paramount+ debut in the United States and Canada on 15 January and the Australian and British premieres the following day.
The ramifications of the prison riot are being felt by Mike McLusky. He is gradually losing control of what his family has achieved in Kingstown and resorts to drastic measures to regain it.
