McMafia 2 Release Date: When will McMafia season 2 be released?
BBC might have officially renewed McMafia series for the second season but they have not dropped the actual release date yet.
McMafia creators Hossein Amini and James Watkins said: “We are so thrilled with how McMafia has resonated with audiences across the world and are delighted to be given the opportunity to cast more light on the shady intersections of transnational criminals and their enablers in finance, law, intelligence agencies and even in governments.”
If anything to go by the previous pattern, the second season of McMafia will be hitting screen on January 1, 2021. Talking about the number of episodes, since the first season had eight episodes it is likely that the second run will feature a similar number of instalments.
McMafia 2 Cast: Who will be in McMafia season 2?
The makers of the series have not made any official announcement regarding the cast of MaMafia season 2. But, if the story begins from where the first season ended, it is likely that the lead character Alex Godman will be returning to the season 2.
Along with Alex, it is most likely that Juilet Rylance will also be seen in the second season as his girlfriend., Rebecca Harper. The other members who are expected to join the cast of McMafia 2 are Aleksey Serebryakov as father Dimitri Godman, mother Maria Shukshina as Oksana Godman and sister Faye Marsay as Katya Godman.
However, if season is made on a new story then audiences could be introduced to a whole new cast of characters.
McMafia 2 Story: What will happen in McMafia season 2?
As we have already told you that McMafia is based on a book written by journalist, Misha Glenny. Glenny wrote about the evolution of organised crime through the Eighties and the Nineties, from its grimy roots to becoming a globalised phenomenon with an incredibly corporate front.
In his book, Glenny highlighted organised crime across the world through a series of extensive interviews with people at all levels: from the perpetrators to the victims and the middle men in between the complex hierarchy.
The first season of McMafia ended with Alex brokering a big deal to flood the European markets with heroin after impressively pitching his plan. It is likely that the second season could showcase his rises through the ranks of mafia bosses in Europe to become a powerful figure in the world of organised crime.
