Preview: The Deuce Season 2

HBO is known to release at least one ambitious and highly anticipated series every fall. Last year it was The Deuce which is based on the rise of porn industry and the drug epidemic in New York especially around Times Square in 1970s. It opened to very high critical acclaim and was loved by the audience. It very well looks to be on a path to become a long-running drama with the likes of “The Sopranos”, “True Blood” and of course “Game of Thrones”. The pilot of the series was available on demand on August 25,2017 and the series premiered on September 10,2017. The show is created by David Simon and George Pelecanos.

The Deuce Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?

Immediately after the premiere of the first season, it was renewed for a second season. The future of the show was in trouble after Sexual Harassment allegations against James Franco by five women in January and HBO was being asked to drop Franco as the lead. But showrunner David Simon released a statement to Variety in February that Franco will return for the second season. The filming for the second season began in late-february. The second season is set to premiere on September 2 on HBO.

The Deuce Season 2 Cast: Who’s in it?

The orginal cast from the first season will return for the second season. James Franco will be back as twins Frankie and Vincent Martino and Maggie Gyllenhaal as Candy, the Times Square street prostitute. Other cast members include George Akinnagbe, Chris Bauer, Gary Carr, Chris Coy, Dominique Fishback, Margarita Levieva, and others who will be back for the second season. It was reported that casting for twins of three ages namely 4,8 and 15 was done which means that we will get to see younger versions of Frankie and Vincent in the second season. No details have been released about any new addition to the main cast as of now and everything is being kept under wraps to protect any information from leaking. But it seems there won’t be any new major character in the second season.

The Deuce Season 2 Plot: What is it about?

At this moment not much is known about the plot of the second season as everything is being kept inside closed rooms. But we can infer some of the plot points from the first season and the style of David Simon who has a knack for unfolding things slowly and make you long for closure as can be seen in “The Wire”. Candy will probably continue with her interest in the porn industry and slowly start getting strong hold of it. Vincent will likely try to expand his business and work with Rudy, with Frankie gambling away the money. With the casting of younger versions of James Franco it is obvious that the season will have flashbacks to the childhood and teenage years of the two brothers.But these are only speculations and no plot points are known for the season as of now.But rest assured we will update this section as soon as new information about the show emerge.

But it is sure that the second will be even better than the first one and it will be very exciting to see what new turns the story  might take with David Simon, the man behind “The Wire” at its helm.
