The Showtime drama “City on a Hill,” which is executive produced by two Massachusetts natives, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, is set in early 1990s Boston, at a time when a crime is on the rise and law enforcement tends to look the other way, if not actively participate in outright corruption. Damon and Affleck are both from Boston. But when former Brooklyn lawyer DeCourcy Ward (Aldis Hodge) is promoted to Assistant District Attorney, she forms a partnership with the shady but sincere FBI veteran Jackie Rohr (Kevin Bacon) in order to bring justice to Beantown, everything changes.
“City on a Hill,” which includes plenty of thick Boston accents, drinking, and tense armed robberies, will appeal to fans of “The Departed,” “The Friends of Eddie Coyle,” and Affleck’s own Charlestown-centered film, “The Town,” among other films. A 76 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes was also given to Season 1, and an AV Club critic praised the show’s March 2021 premiere, writing that “Kevin Bacon’s Jackie Rohr begins her sophomore session with the brash confidence of Kevin Bacon’s Jackie Rohr.”
Here’s everything we currently know about Season 3 of “City on a Hill,” which premieres in May 2021 and will officially conclude in May 2020.
City on a Hill Season 3 Confirmed Release Date
Deadline reported in June 2021 that the Showtime network had approved Season 3 of “City on a Hill,” which will consist of eight episodes and air in the fall of 2021. Despite the fact that the second season ended only a few weeks before the renewal announcement, it already seemed like a foregone conclusion that the show would be renewed, given the positive critical reception it received as well as the popularity of stars Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge.
Fortunately, when compared to the time between Seasons 1 and 2, fans will most likely not have to wait as long for Season 3 to premiere. The first season premiered in August of this year, and the second, which was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, premiered in March of this year. At the time of the renewal announcement, Deadline reported that filming for the third season of the Showtime drama would begin in New York City in late 2021 and conclude in late 2022. That appears to be the case, as filming appears to be continuing as of late January 2022, according to a video update from the set shared by Bacon on Instagram. With filming well underway, it appears likely that Season 3 of “City of a Hill” will premiere later in 2022, as Deadline reported earlier this year.

City on a Hill Season 3 Cast
Season 3 of “City on a Hill” will almost certainly feature the return of the majority of the regular cast. We know Kevin Bacon is reprising his role as Jackie Rohr because of the actor’s recent Instagram activity. It also feels secure to go to bed. Season 3 will see the return of Aldis Hodge in the role of DeCourcy Ward, Lauren E. Banks in the role of Siobhan Quay, and Jennessey in the role of Jenny Rohr. The character of Father Doyle, played by Mark Ryder in Season 2, is also expected to return for a third season.
Amanda Clayton’s Cathy Ryan, on the other hand, is unlikely to be among the returning cast members, as her character appeared to have abandoned Boston and the show in the Season 2 finale, “Pax Bostonia.” Grace Campbell, the activist character played by Pernel Walker, may also have played a role in the story, having witnessed her gang member sons Anton and Kelvin die in tragic circumstances. It appears that the storylines of both of the characters have reached their logical conclusions, though we won’t know for sure until Season 3.
City on a Hill Season 3 Plot
The final episode of Season 2, “Pax Bostonia,” concludes with several of the characters appearing to have reached a dead-end, while others are attempting to find a way to move on. Siobhan (Lauren E. Banks) appears to be working for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in Season 3, much to DeCourcy’s (Aldis Hodge) dismay, as this will almost certainly result in the continuation of their professional feud.
As a result, FBI Agent Jackie Rohr (Kevin Bacon) is no longer in possession of his badge, which he threw into the water in true “Dirty Harry” fashion at the end of the previous episode after ruining his career at an OPR meeting. Season 3 could see the agent delving even deeper into corruption or even abandoning the Bureau and striking out on his own in order to make a name for himself. After spending so much time straddling the line between corruption and the law, it would be fascinating to see Jackie as a rogue agent of sorts.
Season 2 also established strands of storytelling about the Irish Republican Army (IRA) as well as the corruption of the Catholic Church, both of which are extremely relevant to Boston history and which could be explored in depth by the writers in Season 3. For the time being, if you just want to catch up on the show, both seasons are available to watch on Hulu for free.
