The tagline on the trailer for Season 2 of “Boss” on Starz is “Power doesn’t corrupt … it destroys.”
That seems like a pretty apt description of where the show left Chicago Mayor Tom Kane (Kelsey Grammer) at the end of last season, and things don’t look too sunny for the coming year either. Kane’s neurological condition is worsening, Kitty (Kathleen Robertson) appears ready to spill to reporter Sam Miler (Troy Garity) and Alderman Ross (James Vincent Meredith) is making noise about checking the mayor’s power.
You’ll also get your first glimpses at new cast members Sanaa Lathan as Ross’ chief of staff and Jonathan Groff as a new Kane adviser, as well as recurring guest star T.I., who plays a former gang member who wants a career at City Hall.
“Boss” premieres Aug. 17 on Starz. What do you think of the trailer?
