“Boss” returns on August 17, and Starz has released a new trailer providing a sneak peak of the turbulent second season.

“You got a taste of power the other day. Don’t let it go to your head,” says Alderman Ross (James VIncent Meredith) after political fights over votes, an urban housing project, rehabilitation, and corruption.

Mayor Tom Kane’s (Kelsey Grammer) intentions continue to be challenged by Sanaa Lathan who plays Alderman Ross’ Chief of Staff Mona Fredricks. “This isn’t just a housing project. Allowing Kane unchecked control will devastate an entire community.”

Kane’s hidden degenerative neurological disorder and the twists and turns of the mayor’s personal and political life promise to bring new drama to Season 2.

The new season is also bringing on some new faces: Jonathan Groff, T.I., and Lathan are set to appear, along with series regulars Connie NielsenKathleen Robertson, and Hannah Ware.
