On Wednesday, Showtime renewed its original series City on a Hill for a third season. The Showtime drama, written by Tom Fontana, starring Kevin Bacon.
In the early 1990s, Bacon plays Jackie Rohr, a crooked FBI agent operating in Boston, Massachusetts. Season 2 ended with Rohr being fired from the FBI. DeCourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge), an Assistant District Attorney, decides to pursue justice outside of the courtroom as well.
“He’s not really a person that I, honestly, if I’m looking out, would either like or respect,” Bacon said in a Television Critics Association Zoom panel for Season 2. “I feel like if you think that Jackie is doing the right thing, you probably need to check yourself.”
City on a Hill premiered June 7, 2019. Season 2 premiered March 28 this year and aired its season finale May 16.
Both Bacon and Hodge are set to return for Season 3. Hodge also reprises his Leverage role in the new IMDb TV spinoff Leverage: Redemption.
Showtime expects to resume production in New York later this year. Season 3 will consist of eight hour-long episodes. Showtime expects City on a Hill to return in 2022.
