What’s the story for Mayor of Kingstown Season 2?
Season 1 closes with the authorities bringing the Kingstown prison riot to a brutal end. Once he realizes that his younger brother, Kyle, is trapped inside, Mike agrees to enter the prison and negotiate terms with the rioting inmates. It soon becomes clear that the uprising’s leader, P-Dog, means to send a message to the authorities as retribution for the guards’ ill-treatment of the inmates.
Thus, Mike helplessly watches as a prison guard is executed in front of him. Soon after, the security forces surrounding the prison open fire, killing dozens of prisoners and ending the riot. Mike and his brother narrowly survive, and the former returns to his cabin in the woods, where Iris waits for him.
The upcoming season 2 will open in the aftermath of the disastrous riot and likely see Mike picking up the pieces of his empire. With the balance of power and all avenues of negotiation between the authorities and crime gangs essentially destroyed, the “mayor” will have a hard time bringing things back to normal.
After his traumatic experience of being trapped inside the prison during the riot and being assaulted by the prisoners, Mike’s brother Kyle might also consider moving to a more peaceful place. Thus, season 2 is going to see the McLusky family in a very different situation than season 1, but we can expect Mike to doggedly continue the violent legacy left behind by his father and elder brother.
