Showtime Renews 'City on a Hill' for Season 2

During the premium cable network's presentation at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour, Showtime renewed its original drama series City on a Hill for a second season. The drama will likely return with new episodes in 2020.

The drama stars Kevin Bacon, Aldis Hodge, Jonathan Tucker, Mark O'Brien, Lauren E. Banks, Amanda Clayton, Jere Shea, Kevin Chapman and Jill Hennessy.

Chuck MacLean created the drama, with Tom Fontana serving as showrunner for the first season. They executive produce with Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Jennifer Todd, James Mangold, Barry Levinson and Michael Cuesta.

"City on a Hill is that addictive kind of meaty and messy show we love at Showtime," said Gary Levine, Entertainment President, Showtime. "With the inspired pairing of Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge and the inspired writing of Tom Fontana and Chuck MacLean, we believe there is a rich future for this compelling series."
