A little more than seven months after Boss star Kelsey Grammer nabbed a dark-horse Golden Globe for his role as a hard-boiled Chicago Mayor Thomas Kane, the STARZ original series will return for its second season on Aug. 17 at 10 p.m. ET.
We left off with Kane in the grips of a stroke. Next season, he’ll grapple with the psychological impact of increasing doses of medication and will begin probing his inner circle for weakness and disloyalty. Check out the season 2 promo below.
As previously reported, Glee star Jonathan Groff will become a series regular next season, playing Kane’s driven advisor Ian Todd. Sanaa Lathan has also signed on to appear regularly as the Chief of Staff to Alderman Ross (James Vincent Meredith). Connie Nielsen, Hannah Ware, Jeff Hephner, Kathleen Robertson, Troy Garity, and Rotimi will return, and rapper T.I. (a.k.a. Tip Harris) will guest star as an ambitious former gang member with his sights on City Hall.
