'City on a Hill' Season 3 on Showtime: Date, plot, cast and latest buzz around crime drama series
'City on Hill' is back and it's going to intense more than ever as corruption gets deep in the roots of Boston
Crime dramas have always been one of the most intriguing genres and they always tend to capture the imagination of viewers with their engaging storylines and characters. One show that managed to nab all the eyeballs is none other than ‘City on a Hill’. The Showtime series was an instant success and quickly became one of the most-watched series for the network.
Set in the early ‘90s Boston, a corrupt FBI agent Jackie Rohr (Kevin Bacon) forms an unlikely alliance with ADA Decourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge). The initial period of the 1990s was filled with violence in Boston and together, the aforementioned officials take on a case that changes the city's entire criminal justice system. The first two seasons were a huge success and it doesn’t come as a shock that the series has been renewed for another season.
The ending of Season 2 made us believe that there was so much left to explore and it seems Season 3 will definitely come out with things that have never been shown in the series. Here’s everything you need to know about ‘City on a Hill’ Season 3.
When does ‘City on a Hill’ Season 3 release and where can you watch it?
The upcoming edition was previously slated to release on July 10, however, Showtime has now revealed that Season 3 of the crime drama will be premiering exclusively on Sunday, July 31. According to Futon Critic, viewers will be taking the time slot of 10 pm EST this time around.
Viewers can download SHOWTIME app from Google’s Play Store and Apple’s App Store.
What is ‘City on a Hill’ Season 3 all about?
The official synopsis reads, “Season three brings us to Boston’s high society Beacon Hill. Having left the FBI and thrown his badge into Boston Harbor, Jackie Rohr (Bacon) lands a lavish new gig running security for a wealthy family. Life is good until secrets begin to unravel. When an investigation opens, ADA Decourcy Ward (Hodge) sees an opportunity to finally rip out the machinery perpetuating a broken criminal justice system. Siobhan Quays (Banks), representing a construction worker who was severely injured on the Big Dig, encounters the city’s corruption firsthand, all while coping with the traumatic events of her past year. As Jenny Rohr (Hennessy) can attest, given her history with her father, some experiences will haunt you beyond your breaking point.”
The finale of Season 2 left most of the characters at a dead end. Meanwhile, others were trying to find a new way and a way to move forward. Season 3 could see Jackie Rohr going even further into corruption or even leaving the Bureau. Meanwhile, Siobhan might work in the ACLU in Season 3 and this might just turn out to be really bizarre for their professional relationship.
