Showtime Announces Premiere Date for Season 2 of 'City on a Hill'

Showtime has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming second season of the original drama series City on a Hill.

The 8-episode second season will launch on Sunday, March 28 at 10/9c. Beginning April 18, the series will move to 9/8c.

The new season centers on a federal housing project in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston that is plagued with drug violence and a rightful distrust in local law enforcement. As coalition leader Grace Campbell works tirelessly on behalf of the community, her efforts are undermined by gang activity happening right under her nose. Enter irreverent FBI agent Jackie Rohr, who is here to exploit Boston's defective criminal justice system in a desperate attempt to salvage his own career. Unfortunately for Jackie, assistant district attorney Decourcy Ward is onto his adversary's latest misstep. In time, the personal antagonism between these two escalates to an all-out war between the offices of the U.S. Attorney and the Suffolk DA. No one is safe from the collateral damage.

The drama stars Kevin Bacon, Aldis Hodge, Lauren E. Banks, Mark O'Brien, Amanda Clayton, Matthew Del Negro and Jill Hennessy.

Guest stars in the upcoming season include Pernell Walker, Kameron Kierce, Shannon Wallace, John Doman and Michael O'Keefe.

Tom Fontana returns as showrunner. He executive produces with Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Jennifer Todd, Jorge Zamacona, Barry Levinson, Chuck MacLean and Michael Cuesta. Bacon and Hodge serve as co-executive producers alongside Michele Giordano.
