City on a Hill delivered a Season 2 finale fraught with death and consequences for its main characters, Jackie and Decourcy. Now that Showtime has renewed the Boston drama for a season 3, fans will likely see the two men at a crossroads.
On track for airing in 2022, City on a Hill Season 3 will again feature eight episodes, with Tom Fontana (Homicide: Life on the Street) returning as showrunner, Showtime announced Wednesday.
In case you missed it, Season 2 continued to play on the conflicted relationship between FBI agent Jackie Rohr (Kevin Bacon of The Follow) and ADA Decourcy Ward (A Night in Miami’s Aldis Hodge). The personal antagonism between the men even turned into an all-out war between the US Attorney’s Office and Suffolk DA. But when Jackie and Decourcy discovered they had a common enemy in Anton (Shannon Wallace), son of Grace Campbell (The Deuce’s Pernell Walker), the two ended up working together much more than expected as the season progressed. .
At the end of Season 2, Decourcy and his wife Siobhan (Lauren E. Banks) had to come to terms with the loss of their unborn baby and try to find justice in and out of the courtroom after Anton had accidentally shot Lauren, his lawyer, while attempting to kill Decourcy. A rogue cop killed Anton before justice was done, and unfortunately Anton’s brother Kelvin (Kameron Kierce) didn’t fare much better and was murdered in prison.
Kelvin’s death took its toll on Decourcy, who questioned his career path in the finale, with Jackie doing the same after the FBI fired him.
