City on a Hill kicked off in June, and most of you are concerned about the possibility of a Season 2. Showtime has yet to announce the network's decision on the future of the series, yet it's clear to us that City on a Hill Season 2 is just a matter of time. We want to say more, since City on a Hill went out under the wing of Ben Affleck, Showtime most likely treat the drama series as a long-term television project. And below, we want to explain why do we suppose so.
City on a Hill Season 1 debut has garnered 0.532 million viewers with a key demo rating of 0.07 among adults (P18-49). The viewership may seem a bit weak, yet if we compare the figures with those of The Affair, the drama series, which premiered in 2014 on Showtime, we might note that they were almost equal, and even in favor of City on a Hill. It's worth noting that The Affair has already survived four seasons on Showtime, therefore, we regard the results of City on a Hill pretty acceptable.
Another key factor capable of affecting the decision on renewal is how critics and viewers met the show. In case with City on a Hill, the situation looks more than favorable, given the statistics presented by media aggregators. On Rotten Tomatoes, City on a Hill holds a 72% approval rating from critics, whereas viewers have given a 100% rating for the drama series. On Metacritic, City on a Hill Season 1 holds a score of 65/100 and 7.8/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. On IMDb, City on a Hill has a very strong rating of 8.2/10 based on over 500 votes.
Summing up, City on a Hill no doubt deserves renewal, and we tend to believe thereby that Showtime's management has been fully satisfied, looking at the statistics presented above. Therefore, we expect the announcement of City on a Hill Season 2 very soon. And of course, we are looking forward to any official news, which arrives from Showtime. As soon as the network announces the renewal, we will update this page.
City on a Hill Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, City on a Hill Season 2 is yet to be announced, but we think that Showtime should announce their decision soon. Therefore, in the best case scenario, we should expect City on a Hill Season 2 next summer, in June 2020, given the current schedule of the series. However, we don't even rule out the earlier fall premiere, depending on the number of episodes in Season 1.
But still, all the data above is only our forecast. We are tracking down all the official announcements that arrive from Showtime. Once the network announces the renewal as well as a specific release date, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
City on a Hill Summary
The story took place in the 90s Boston, the city, which has been flooded with violent criminals. No one citizen could be sure of his safety when he came out his home, and that he may come back home alive, not being robbed. Various street mobs threaten the city and occasionally fight each other as well as cops.
To settle the situation that emerged in Boston, an ambitious District Attorney Decourcy Ward has been sent to the city. He was entrusted to solve a crime related to racial violence. Yet Ward's intentions faced a corrupt, yet venerated FBI veteran, Jackie Rohr, who never followed the rules. Ward and Rohr were forced to become the unlikely buddy cops. However, one case, which caused their common efforts allowed the odd couple to turn into a knit team of crime fighters.
