The Mayor of Kingstown series depicts the disturbing aspect of a North American township – Kingstown. It narrates a tale to show – what happens when society fails and crumbles, the chaos reigns supreme in a town.
Like the proverbial termites, the all-pervading corruption has taken over almost all the critical wings of a local government in a city. In this tale, the streets of Kingstown are infested with crime, drugs, gun culture, prostitution, etc. With the police and the justice system not helping much in cleaning up the mess, life is tough and depressing.

Season one of Mayor of Kingston tells a compelling story about the nexus among politicians, power brokers, police officials, jail authorities, private sector players, criminals, et al. This is a dark and gritty tale about the systemic racism, corruption and inequality in contemporary American society between Whites and Blacks. It is not easy to view at all. However, if you can look past its gloominess and hellishness, then it is a captivating story about the blurred lines of morality; wherein lots of grey areas exist between the law and lawlessness. And justice is elusive.

Mayor of Kingstown (S22/2023) Series:- spoilers free brief review
The violence and mayhem of this series continue in season two, yet I carried on watching this captivating thriller drama. Although, I wonder if it is a work of fiction or probably a slice of the bleak reality of a decaying society in America. The rampant crime and corruption shown in this series are a little too much for our palate, so these are hard to digest. Despite all the negativities, I maintain that this series should be watched at least once. As it paints very dark and bleak scenarios for society. Maybe we (viewers) all need to understand and appreciate the what-if scenarios – leading us towards anarchy.

|Rotten Tomatoes ratings as of the date||50% Tomatometer & 93% Audience Score|
|James Croot / Rotten Tomatoes||Likely to be a little too gloomy for the Yellowstone crowd and not quite weighty enough for avid crime drama aficionados, this show is nonetheless well worth seeking out.|
Mayor of Kingstown Series:- final take
It tells a dark story about contemporary society. And I am sure that crime and corruption have afflicted almost all societies around the world. Some societies are ready to reflect and take remedial measures to improve. While many other societies continue to ignore the oblivious signs of disintegration and deterioration. In fact, some of these people crazily welcome the corruption and inequality in their society. All these are only leading us towards anarchy like Kingstown town.
Perhaps Mayor of Kingstown is based on real life Kingston township in Canada, North America. This town is also known as the prison town of Canada, as it has nine prisons located in the vicinity of this town.
