61st Street Season 2 Release Date
A 6.1/10 on IMDB is good enough to get us another renewal. Usually, higher-rated series have a better chance of being renewed for a second season. It won’t be long before we learn whether the crime series will return for a second season or if we’ll have to find another favorite despite the showrunners’ silence on the subject.
After the Season 1 finale of its drama series 61st Street, AMC has given some hints at the next season. If the show gets the green light from the producers, so we can expect it to premiere sometime in 2023.

61st Street Season 2 Plot
The following is an official synopsis of the show:
Moses Johnson, a promising Black high school athlete, is swept up into the infamously corrupt Chicago criminal justice system. Franklin Roberts (Courtney B. Vance) takes the case, recognizing the potential to upend the entire Chicago judicial system.
The show follows Moses Johnson, a Black high school athlete who appears to have a promising career ahead of him, but he is about to experience some unfortunate events that he is completely unaware of. Having been caught on accusations of being a member of one of Chicago’s most notorious criminal organizations, his hopes of becoming a world-famous athlete are dashed. Police and prosecutors are vengeful for one of their own who was killed during the drug arrest, making Moses’s situation much more difficult.
Franklin Roberts, the public defender who had just promised his wife that he would retire sooner if he heard of Moses’ condition, may see his incarceration as a blessing in disguise. If he takes this opportunity, he may be able to right all of the wrongs that have gone unpunished for too long.
The teaser of season 1 provides viewers a taste of the repercussions of the season finale that aired on May 29. Filmmaker Courtney B. Vance’s character, Franklin Roberts, is Moses Johnson’s lawyer in the first season after the talented high school athlete is brought into detention for being a suspected member of the Black gang. Continuing his investigation into Chicago’s notoriously corrupt legal system, Roberts will most probably return for a second season in the hopes of upending the entire system. By declaring, “I always got my eyes on the prize” Roberts closes up the trailer.
