Like a Wild West story in the modern day. Wait, didn’t they already do that with Justified?

ViacomCBS is proud to announce their upcoming new series Mayor of Kingstown with the official trailer above. This crime thriller show will debut on Sunday, November 14, 2021. Of course, this show will be a Paramount+ exclusive, and that streaming service isn’t free. If you want to watch this show, then you’re going to need to cough up the cash for a subscription. Fortunately, they are also a bit cheaper than other streaming services at $4.99 a month, so that’s some good news for those of you looking to subscribe.

Mayor of Kingstown: Details

Somehow, a town whose only thriving business is its prison doesn’t sound very prosperous.

So what is Mayor of Kingstown about exactly? Well, it’s a crime thriller and drama created by Taylor Sheridan and Hugh Dillon, and produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios. The initial 10-episode season features an all-star cast including Academy Award® nominee Jeremy Renner, Academy Award® winner Dianne Wiest, Emmy Award® winner Kyle Chandler, Dillon, Taylor Handley, Emma Laird, and Tobi Bamtefa. The official synopsis from Paramount+ is as follows:

“MAYOR OF KINGSTOWN follows the McLusky family – power brokers in Kingstown, Mich., where the business of incarceration is the only thriving industry. Tackling themes of systemic racism, corruption and inequality, the series provides a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.”

So yeah, it sounds like a Wild West story in the modern day. It kind of sounds like Justified, with a hint of Deadwood mixed in. We’ll just have to have to see what it’ll be like when we get to see it.


CBSViacom is proud to announce the debut of Mayor of Kingstown. This crime thriller drama will debut exclusively on Paramount+ on November 14, 2021. If you want to watch this modern day Western story, you might want to check Paramount+ out then.
