What’s the story Mr. Mayor Season 2
The Hollywood Reporter revealed in 2019 that Mr. Mayor was originally conceived by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock as a spinoff of 30 Rock which would focus on Jack Donaghy, played by Alec Baldwin, as he changed careers to become a mayor. In keeping with the show, it was meant to be set in New York, but when Baldwin dropped out, the show went in a new creative direction with Ted Danson. To fulfil Danson’s wishes to shoot close to home, the show’s setting went from New York to Los Angeles.
The first season focused on Neil, Orly, Arpi, and the rest of the mayoral team as they navigated city-level politics and worked with each other, often toward mitigating an issue Neil had made worse. Several members of the team developed friendships with each other, their differing perspectives helping the characters see their own lives in new ways. Season 2 promises to continue this trend as the mayoral team and Orly become more adept at navigating the city’s issues and better understanding each other. Vella Lovell spoke about how comedy, rather than politics, is the show’s first priority, and that is sure to remain Mr. Mayor’s focus when it returns for its second season.
