Paramount+ announced today that Mayor of Kingstown has been renewed for a second season. The good news comes less than a month after the drama wrapped its 10-episode freshman run, which ranked as the streaming service's second-most-watched original show despite a mixed reception from critics.

The series follows the McLusky family, who are power brokers in the business of incarceration, running for-profit prisons in Kingstown, Michigan. It is the only thriving industry in a town with a history of systemic racism, inequality, and corruption. Together they attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.
