BOSS Season Two Promises Twists And Turns
Cast talks up second season in promotional clip.
The Season Two premiere of Starz’ Boss needs to be an event. This is the decision that I have reached this evening having finished a thorough dissemination of the day’s box scores. It’s not just because Starz needs to hit Boss out of the park this year, though it clearly does, if only to justify doubling down on a second season before the premiere of the first.
Truth be told, Boss didn’t blow the roof off the dump in its first season, to the point that the president of the network joked that he had received no complaints from sponsors (get it? No sponsors for the pay network). The show was a critical darling, to be sure, and for those who managed to extract episodes from their crowded DVRs, Boss has earned a small following of rabid supporters. But Boss is no Walking Dead or even Breaking Bad.
Still, the only word-of-mouth treatment that Boss has received has been of the overwhelmingly positive variety, and for a series that didn’t come storming straight out of the gate, that is the best type of publicity that one can hope to get. But just in case, the network is circulating this bit of video, courtesy of THR, to fan the flames a bit:
The cast members, in addition to the usual orgy of praise for their fellow actors, are eager to point out the emphasis that the show will place on each of the supporting characters’ personal lives in the coming season. Frankly, I’m already pretty well satisfied with the depths of the portrayals in the first season, but if Boss is looking to turn things up a notch, far be it from me to get in their way.
As an adopted Chicagoan, it’s good to see a top-flight TV show in which the Windy City takes a center stage. We’ve been smacked all over the place on the tube around here (with The Chicago Code being the latest and most egregious example), and while Boss is far from a Chamber Of Commerce video for our fair city, it is as realistic a portrayal of the political shenanigans and power-brokering that goes on around these parts on a daily basis.
The world welcomes Boss back on August 17th.
