Season 2 of 'Hightown' Receives Premiere Date on Starz

Starz has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming second season of its original drama series Hightown.

The 10-episode second season will debut on Sunday, October 17 at 9/8c.

In the new season, the picture-perfect version of summer on Cape Cod clashes with its off-season reality. Achieving her dream of becoming a real cop, Jackie Quinones is out to do some good in this world. Thrust immediately into the crime wave of deadly carfentanyl flooding the Cape, Jackie is laser-focused on bringing down drug dealer Frankie Cuevas, the man Jackie holds responsible for the death of her best friend, Junior. For Jackie, it's personal but then again, for Jackie, everything is personal. When Frankie's cousin Jorge joins his operation, he introduces a new level of violence and chaos. With disgraced officer Ray Abruzzo off the force and mired in depression, Jackie finds a new partner in Leslie, the only other female on the force. Through it all, Jackie must walk the tightrope of sobriety as she struggles to stay above an ocean of secrets, betrayal and the shame and failure of her past.

The drama stars Monica Raymund, James Badge Dale, Riley Voelkel, Amaury Nolasco, Atkins Estimond, Tonya Glanz and Dohn Norwood.

Guest stars in the second season include Luis Guzmán, Jona Xiao, Carlos Gómez, Mark Boone Junior, Cecil Blutche and Crystal Lee Brown.

Rebecca Cutter created the drama. She executive produces with Gary Lennon, Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, KristieAnne Reed and Ellen H. Schwartz. Lionsgate Television and Jerry Bruckheimer Television produce.
