Alex Godman, the English-raised son of Russian mafia exiles, has spent his life trying to escape the shadow of their past, building his own legitimate business and forging a life with his girlfriend Rebecca. But when a murder forces his family's past to return to threaten them, Alex is drawn into the criminal underworld and must confront his values to protect those he loves.
It is being reported that international crime drama McMafia will be returning for a second season. A co-production of the UK's BBC and AMC in the states, the series premiered earlier this year with an eight-episode run that fared well with audiences on both continents.
Inspired by Misha Glenny's best-selling book of the same name, McMafia follows the journey of Alex Godman, an English-raised son of Russian exiles with links to the mafia. Although he has spent his life trying to separate himself from his family's criminal associations, Alex is forced to confront his values to protect the ones he loves when his family's past returns to threaten him.
Another eight episodes have reportedly been ordered for Season 2 of McMafia, though a time frame for its return is not yet known.
