Season one of the dramatic series “Mayor of Kingstown” arrives on Blu-ray and DVD Sept. 27 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
Starring Jeremy Renner and hailing from “Yellowstone” co-creator and Academy Award nominee Taylor Sheridan and Hugh Dillon, the series 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.
The original drama series produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios first launched in November 2021 with “Yellowstone” serving as a launchpad airing a special simulcast event for the series’ premiere on Paramount Network. The premiere of “Mayor of Kingstown” was the No. 1 original scripted drama on Paramount+ since the rebrand and cable’s biggest new scripted premiere since “Yellowstone” in June 2018 with 2.6 million total viewers, according to Paramount.
The disc release includes all 10 uncensored episodes from the inaugural season, along with more than two hours of special features, including “Behind the Story” segments for each episode; “Perdition: Making ‘Mayor of Kingstown'”; “Zero Sum Game: The Finale”; “Inside ‘Mayor of Kingstown'”; character spots; and the cast’s favorite scenes.
In addition to Renner, the first season stars Academy Award winner Dianne Wiest, Emmy Award winner Kyle Chandler, Hugh Dillon, Taylor Handley, Emma Laird, Tobi Bamtefa, Derek Webster, Hamish Allan-Headley, Pha’rez Lass and Aidan Gillen.
