Mayor of Kingstown made quite a splash since premiering on Paramount+, and its future is looking bright. The crime thriller led by Jeremy Renner has been renewed by the streamer for its third season.
The future Mayor of Kingstown was uncertain ever since Renner was critically injured in a snowplow accident back in January. The show’s second season premiered two weeks after he was injured, and his extensive recovery process made the show’s fans wonder if it would even be renewed.
After a lot of speculation, Paramount+ confirmed that Mayor of Kingstown will be back for Season 3. Renner confirmed his return by sharing a slide show of his character Mike McLusky with a caption, “Might be time to start mental preparation for 3?”
Mayor of Kingstown was created by Taylor Sheridan and Hugh Dillon, and it follows the McLusky family, the power brokers in Kingstown, Michigan where the business of incarceration is the only thriving industry. According to its official synopsis, it tackles the themes of systemic racism, corruption, and inequality and provides a stark look at McLusky’s attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.
In addition to Renner, the show also stars Dianne Wiest, Hugh Dillon, Tobi Bamtefa, Taylor Handley, Emma Laird, Derek Webster, Hamish Allan-Headley, Pha’rez Lass, Aidan Gillen, Kyle Chandler, and Nishi Munshi.
