Mayor of Kingstown Season 2 Images Preview Mike's Post-Riot Problems

Heading into next month's second season premiere of Taylor Sheridan (Yellowstone) and Hugh Dillon's Mayor of Kingstown, Paramount+ has released some early images from the upcoming series of the Jeremy Renner & Dianne Wiest-starring series. The streaming series 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. But in the aftermath of last season's riot, things are about to get a lot more complicated for Mike (Renner) as he adjusts to a new reality & what that means moving forward.
