Renewed or Cancelled?
Sylvester Stallone once again proves he is still the man after all these years. Still in remarkable shape, Stallone finds his old touch of badass mafia treachery in Taylor Sheridan’s recently wrapped up season 1 of Tulsa King. His action-man energy is on full display in the entertaining maiden venture for Stallone’s Dwight Manfredi, as he is released from prison and must make his own way in a new, estranged world.
Having completed episode 9 of season 1, you must be wondering if the show has made it to a second season. After all, the season ends on such a cliffhanger which if true, will be truly heartbreaking and devastating for Dwight’s family and crew. With the kind of numbers the show did on Paramount+, it should ideally be renewed, right? Here is what we know about a potential season 2 for Tulsa King.
What is Tulsa King Season 1 about?
Dwight Manfredi (Stallone) is a made man in an established mafia family in New York. He is released from prison after serving a 25-year sentence only to find out that he does not have a place in the family anymore in New York/ He is shipped off to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to expand the family’s business. But through his wit, bravery, and good heart, Dwight quickly builds up a small crew of loyal friends, among whom is an old friend-turned enemy-turned friend again.
ATF agent Stacy Beale (Andrea Savage) also strikes up an inadvertent relationship with Dwight. She unwittingly sees him as a partner but the realization of the nature of his past messes things up. Local biker gang Black Macadams, led by the menacing Caolan Waltrip (Ritchie Coster), have a run-in with Dwight’s crew. The tensions escalate into a full-blown gang war. But Dwight must also pay attention to Chickie, his friend Pete’s son, becoming the boss in New York and sending out a hit for him.
Martin Starr (Bodhi), Max Casella (Armand), Garrett Hedlund (Mitch), Domenick Lambardozzi (Chickie), and Jay Will (Tyson), also star.
Has Tulsa King been renewed for Season 2?
Yes! Tulsa King has been renewed for a second season! The announcement came as early as November of last year when Paramount executives were sure the show would do well with the audiences. Their predictions came to be true as the show quickly became Paramount+’s second-biggest show, behind only 1923.
What we know about Season 2 so far:
Literally nothing. All the network has made sure of is that we will be having a second season but no timelines about its release or details about the personnel have been revealed. Given how season 1 ends with Dwight in the police car, we can expect pretty much everyone to return. Waltrip is the only character who cannot come back. The door is open for everyone else to feature in season 2.
As far as the storyline goes, we are sure to pick up from the finale where Dwight is arrested once again and life comes full circle for Tina. Stacy must be riddled with guilt for having taken away Dwight’s second chance at a loving life. It will remain to be seen how he will get out. The nature of the crime is not as serious as killing someone but the authorities have waited a long time to apprehend Dwight for any simple thing and they have got their man for trying to bribe a federal officer.
We will be updating this article with more information as it comes. So be sure to check it out sometime later this year!
