Although Season 3 has yet to arrive, the hype for Mayor of Kingstown is still high.
Created by Taylor Sheridan and Hugh Dillon, the hit American drama features Jeremy Renner as the titular mayor who is trying to keep the peace in Kingstown while acting as the moderator between street gangs, prisoners, guards, and the cops.

Mayor of Kingstown Season 3 Release: When Will It Come Out?
Paramount+ has yet to renew Mayor of Kingstown for Season 3, meaning that it has no release date yet.
Given that Season 2 concluded in March 2023, it's possible that Paramount+ and the show's creators are still discussing a potential narrative direction for Season 3.
In January 2023, showrunner Hugh Dillon told Deadline about potential Season 3 plans for the hit series, noting that he and Taylor Sheridan have "multiple ideas for multiple seasons" while also hinting that they could start "pre-production in the summer:"
"Taylor and I have multiple ideas for multiple seasons. If everything went according to plan with Paramount+ and the rest of it, I would think that we’d start in August, September, maybe pre-production in the summer."
If Season 3 is announced this year, then it wouldn't premiere until 2025 at the earliest considering the ongoing writers' strike that has halted movie & television development across Hollywood.
Will Jeremy Renner Return in Mayor of Kingstown Season 3?
In January 2023, Mayor of Kingstown lead star Jeremy Renner was involved in a snow plowing accident near his home when a plowing machine flipped on top of him, severely injuring his leg before he was airlifted to hospital for surgery.
Since then, Renner has been steadily recovering. The actor's current situation has led many to speculate if he will return to the MCU and other projects, such as Mayor of Kingstown.
In June 2023, the actor said he'd be there "in a heartbeat" if Marvel called him for a possible Hawkeye comeback.
As for a potential Mayor of Kingstown return, Renner teased in a tweet that a third season may be on the horizon, sharing a post with the caption, "Might be time to start mental preparation for 3?:"
There's a chance that Paramount+ and the showrunners could still be discussing with Renner the next steps to return, and this could be the reason why Season 3 has yet to be announced.
The expectation is that Renner would return in Mayor of Kingstown Season 3.
