Jackie Quiñones, a hard-partying lesbian National Marine Fisheries Service agent, has her free-wheeling life thrown into disarray when she discovers a body in Cape Cod Bay. To deal with the trauma, Jackie takes the first steps toward sobriety - until she becomes convinced it’s up to her to solve the murder as she finds herself at the center of the Cape’s gruesome heroin epidemic.
Starz announced today that Hightown has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes just four episodes into the drama's freshman run, which has been garnering healthy viewership and generally favorable reviews.
The series follows a National Marine Fisheries Services Officer in Cape Cod whose carefree, booze-addled life is upended when she discovers a dead body on the beach during a holiday weekend. This thrusts her into the center of a perilous opioid ring investigation, which she sets out to solve on her own amidst her personal journey to sobriety.
Look for Season 2 of Hightown in 2021.
