City on a Hill Season 3 Release Date
The makers have not revealed anything about the release date of season 3. However, since Season 2 premiered on March 28, 2021, the new season should premiere towards the end of 2022.
The upcoming season might consist of eight to ten episodes like Season 1 and 2. The makers are expected to announce any new additions and new details about the third season.
City on a Hill Season 3 Plot and Cast
The final episode of Season 2, “Pax Bostonia,” concludes with several of the characters appearing to have reached a dead-end, while others are attempting to find a way to move on.
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 animosity.
As a result, FBI Agent Jackie Rohr (Kevin Bacon) is no longer in possession of his badge, which he threw into the lake in true “Dirty Harry” fashion at the close of the previous episode after damaging his career at an OPR meeting.
Season 3 might show the agent delving even deeper into corruption or possibly abandoning the Bureau and striking out on his own to make a name for himself.
After spending so much time straddling the border between corruption and the law, it would be fascinating to see Jackie as a rogue agent of sorts.
Season 2 also established strands of storytelling about the Irish Republican Army (IRA) as well as the corruption of the Catholic Church, all of which are extremely pertinent to Boston history and which might be explored in depth by the writers in Season 3.
