Mayor of Kingstown season 3 release date speculation, cast, and news

The Mayor of Kingstown season 3 release date promises us more of Jeremy Renner's hit TV series on Paramount Plus, and we've got all the dirt on the follow-up.

Mayor of Kingstown season 3 release date

When is the Mayor of Kingstown season 3 release date? Taylor Sheridan has topped himself time and time again with one Paramount Plus original series after the other, and Mayor of Kingstown is no exception.

The Mayor of Kingstown is one of the best thriller series available right now, and focuses on Mike McLusky (Jeremy Renner) of Kingstown, Michigan, who’s the unfortunate middle-man between criminals and the law. In only two seasons, it’s become one of the best TV series on the platform. Like you, we can’t wait for season 3, so we’ve done some digging on what to expect.

Mayor of Kingstown season 3 release date speculation

Mayor of Kingstown season 3 was greenlit on September 3, 2023! The release date is still unconfirmed, but we think it’ll be sometime in early 2025.

With Renner suffering an accident earlier in 2023, it’s fair to say that the next season of the show is taking a backseat in favor of the MCU actor’s health. There are reports that the third season was greenlit earlier, but public announcements were held back while Renner was still recovering.

Season 2 finished airing on Paramount Plus in March 2023, and we think it’ll take a while for the streaming service to get a third season completed. With the 2023 Actors Strike still ongoing, there won’t be much progress with shooting until a fair deal is made. The scripts were supposedly already written before the Writers Strike hit, meaning things should be good to go once this current strike is resolved. With this in mind, early 2025 seems like it could work.

Frankly, we’re not surprised another season is on the cards. Paramount Plus claims that Mayor of Kingstown is their third-best performing series on the platform, after 1923 and Tulsa King. So it looks like Sheridan only has to outperform…himself.

Who’s in the Mayor of Kingstown season 3 cast?

You’ll be pleased to know that Jeremy Renner is set to return for Mayor of Kingstown season 3 as Mike McLusky.

It’s also thought that co-creator and actor Hugh Dillon would return, alongside Kyle Chandler as Mitch McLusky and Taylor Handley as Kyle McLusky. However, it was suggested by Deadline in September 2023 that Dianne Wiest would not be returning as Mariam McLusky, meaning there’s one less McLusky family member on our screens this time around.

Another person who’s unlikely to return is Aiden Gillen’s Milo. During the season 2 finale, which aired on March 20, 2023, his character’s boat was blown up, seemingly killing him, but it may have been a fake-out.

The Mayor of Kingstown season 3 cast list may include:

  • Jeremy Renner as Mike McLusky
  • Kyle Chandler as Mitch McLusky
  • Taylor Handley as Kyle McLusky
  • Tobi Bamtefa as Deverin “Bunny” Washington
  • Emma Laird as Iris
  • Derek Webster as Stevie
  • Hamish Allan-Headley as Robert
  • Nishi Munshi as Tracey McLusky

What will Mayor of Kingstown season 3 be about?

The series creators have a plan that likely sees the fallout of the criminal war breaking out in Kingstown, as well as the development of the McLusky’s family dramas.

Season 2 ended on a rather dramatic note, with an all-out criminal war breaking out. Sounds like something out of one of the best action movies rather than a small screen drama, right? It all boils down to the villainous Milo, who’s demanding his bonds, and Mike, who’s trying to simultaneously stop him and save the others in his clutches.

Things get a little close for comfort when Milo shows up at Mariam’s house and threatens to kill her if he doesn’t get what he wants. Of course, when a shootout occurs, she’s in the line of fire and gets shot accidentally by Kyle. She’s alive, but she’s in a bad way. Everyone agrees to say it was one of Milo’s men, since Kyle is about to start a family and shouldn’t lose his future over one mistake.

It all accumulates in an explosive ending, with Mike giving Milo the bonds, but secretly rigging them with explosives. When Milo is driving away on his boat, it goes up in flames, leaving Mike and Iris to watch.

When season 3 picks up, we imagine that it would focus on the fallout from this attack, and reveal what happens to Mariam. (If the rumors surrounding Wiest’s departure are true, season 3 may begin with her dying.) Kyle’s guilt over shooting his mother will probably be a focus point for his character, too. Plus, Mike’s quest to find redemption for Iris has been a central arc of season 2, so we think more time would be spent on their relationship and how he can help her.

What we know for certain is that the writers have a clear idea of where they want things to go, and it’s likely going to be major. Speaking with ComicBook in January 2023 about the drama series’ future post-season 2, Dillon revealed, “We had ten years to construct it. So yeah, we’ve got a big future planned for Mayor.”
