The second season of political drama series Boss will premiere on Starz on Friday August 17th at 10/9c, it has been announced.

Boss was created by Farhad Safina and revolves around the daily life of embattled Chicago mayor Tom Kane. The award winning series stars Kelsey Grammer as Mayor Tom Kane, Connie Nielsen as Meredith Kane, Hannah Ware as Emma Kane, Jeff Hephner as Ben Zajac, Kathleen Robertson as Kitty O’Neill, Troy Garity as Sam Miller and Rotimi as Darius.

In season two of Boss, Kane ferociously beats back the physical symptoms of his illness with high doses of medication. But this comes at a cost: experiencing heightened psychological manifestations of the disease. Without his longtime advisors Stone and Kitty, Kane is also forced to reconfigure his inner circle. Surrounded by strangers and without much time left, he acts quickly to protect and repair his legacy by cutting out the cancers within the political machine. But as corrupt heads roll and his list of enemies grows, Kane’s virtuous actions begin to erode the very foundation of power he’s worked a lifetime to build. In order to maintain it, Kane must govern as he always has—ruthlessly.

Joining the main cast for the show’s 10 episode second season are Jonathan Groff as Ian Todd, a smart and ambitious young advisor to Kane, and Sanaa Lathan as Mona Fredericks, Alderman Ross’ strong-willed and politically savvy Chief of Staff. Guest stars lined up for season two include: Tip Harris as Trey, a former gangbanger with designs on a career in City Hall and Amy Morton as State Senator Catherine Walsh, who has been defeated in her bid for Governor three times, but is now determined to win.
