The Showtime drama “City on a Hill,” which is executive produced by two Massachusetts natives, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, is set in early 1990s Boston, at a time when a crime is on the rise and law enforcement is more likely to look the other way, if not outright participate in corruption. Damon and Affleck are both from Boston. But when former Brooklyn lawyer DeCourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge) is promoted to Assistant District Attorney, she forms a partnership with the sleazy but earnest FBI veteran Jackie Rohr (Kevin 27Bacon) in order to deliver justice to the city of Beantown.
There’s enough to enjoy in “City on a Hill” for lovers of “The Departed,” “The Friends of Eddie Coyle,” and Affleck’s own Charlestown-set movie “The Town.” The film features plenty of thick Boston accents, drinking, and tense armed robberies. A 76% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes was also given to Season 1, while an AV Club critic praised the show’s March 2021 launch, stating that it “begins its sophomore session with the brazen confidence of Kevin Bacon’s Jackie Rohr.” Season 2 will premiere in March 2021.
Here’s what we presently know about Season 3 of “City on a Hill,” which will premiere in May 2021 after Season 2 concludes.
City On A Hill Season 3 Release Date
Season 3 of “City on a Hill” will premiere on July 10 2022, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Showtime network. The season will consist of eight episodes. The show’s second season came to a close only a few weeks before the announcement of its renewal; however, given the positive critical reception it received as well as the popularity of its stars Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge, it already appeared to be a foregone conclusion that the show would be brought back.
In contrast to the wait between Seasons 1 and 2, fans will most likely not have to wait nearly as long for Season 3. In August 2019, the first season began, while the second season, which was delayed due to the COVID-19 epidemic, premiered in March this year. According to Deadline, the third season of the Showtime drama would begin filming in New York City in late 2021, which coincided with the announcement of the renewal. Because, as of late January 2022, filming looks to still be in progress, according to a video update from the set posted by Bacon on Instagram, it appears to be the case. Considering that filming for Season 3 has already begun, it appears likely that it will premiere later in 2022, according to a report published earlier this year by Deadline.
City On A Hill Season 3 Cast
“City on a Hill” Season 3 is expected to feature a large number of the show’s regular cast members. In light of the actor’s recent Instagram activity, we know Kevin Bacon is reprising his role as Jackie Rohr. As well as being comfortable in bed. Among those returning for Season 3 is Aldis Hodge in the role of DeCourcy Ward, Lauren E. Banks as Siobhan Quay, and Jennessey in the role of Jenny Rohr. Season 2’s recurrent character Father Doyle, played by Mark Ryder, is also expected to return for a second season.
Amanda Clayton’s Cathy Ryan, on the other hand, is unlikely to be among the returning cast members, given her character appeared to have abandoned Boston and the program in the Season 2 finale “Pax Bostonia.” Following the deaths of her gang member sons, Anton and Kelvin, in terrible circumstances, Pernel Walker’s activist character Grace Campbell may have played a role in the plot as well. It appears like the arcs of both of the characters have reached their logical conclusions, however, we won’t know for sure until Season 3 premieres.
City On A Hill Season 3 Plot
The final episode of Season 2, “Pax Bostonia,” concludes with several of the protagonists appearing to have reached a dead-end, while others are attempting to find a means to continue their journey. Siobhan (Lauren E. Banks) appears to be working for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in Season 3, much to DeCourcy’s (Aldis Hodge) dismay, as this will almost certainly result in the continuation of their professional feuding in the future.
Agent Jackie Rohr (Kevin Bacon) is currently without his badge, having thrown it into the sea in “Dirty Harry” fashion at the end of the last episode after jeopardising his future at an OPR meeting. This season, the agent could be pushed to the brink of corruption, or he could even quit the Bureau and strike out on his own in Season 3. Given Jackie’s lengthy history of straddling the border between corruption and the rule of law, it would be fascinating to see her in this role.
Also established in Season 2 were narrative strands centered on the Irish Republican Army (IRA) and church corruption (the Catholic Church), both of which are extremely pertinent to Boston history and which have the potential to be developed wonderfully in Season 3. To catch up on the show, for the time being, both seasons are available to stream on Hulu right now.
