Netflix Releases Images/Key Art & June Premiere Date For ‘The Politician’ Season 2
Netflix has released some images, poster, and a June premiere date for Season 2 of Ryan Murphy’s ‘The Politician‘.
The dark comedy follows Payton Hobart (Ben Platt – ‘Pitch Perfect’), a wealthy student from Santa Barbara, California, has known since age seven that he’s going to be President of the United States. In Season 1, we saw him having to navigate the most treacherous political landscape of all: Saint Sebastian High School – the first step in his rise to power.
As we head into Season 2, Payton fights to unseat Dede Standish (Judith Light) in the New York State Senate race. As a long-time incumbent and greatly admired Senate Majority Leader with no-nonsense Chief of Staff, Hadassah Gold (Bette Midler) at her side, Dede’s re-election was supposed to be easy, but Payton – who sees this as the next step on his path to the Presidency – must decide what kind of politician he ultimately wants to be in order to succeed, even if that means exposing secrets, lies, and a throuple.
Meanwhile, his mother, Georgina Hobart (Gwyneth Paltrow), makes a momentous decision that threatens to upstage him and everything he’s hoping to accomplish. But if Payton wants to rise above petty politics and succeed without compromising his character, he must find his voice and strengthen his political message to inspire and excite the voters.
Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan, ‘The Politician’ offers a comedic and satirical glimpse into just what it takes to be a politician. The Netflix original comedy series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios.
‘The Politician‘ Season 2 premieres Friday, 19th June 2020 on Netflix UK and worldwide.
