The announcement of the new season was expected, as the first season of Last King of The Cross had outstanding success for Paramount+, and was the most the most-watched Australian series on the platform.
“Australian audiences love local stories and content, which is why Last King of The Cross was the most watched local series. We’re thrilled to bring viewers the next instalment of this gripping story,” said Daniel Monaghan, Senior Vice President of Content and Programming at Paramount ANZ.
“It is titles like this that make us proud to have our local commissions with universal themes, compelling, propulsive storylines, world-class Australian talent and high-quality production values, contribute to Paramount+’s mountain of exclusive content, on an international scale.”
What will season two be about?
The upcoming season of Last King of The Cross will dive even deeper into the seductive and hazardous Kings Cross world, where John Ibrahim is expanding his empire into the thriving queer nightlife scene.
It will be set in the ecstasy-filled times of the 2000s and will see everyone – including John’s two younger brothers – trying to profit from the booming clubbing industry.
“After the outstanding success of season one, we are incredibly excited for Last King of The Cross to return for an electrifying second season. Bigger, bolder, and even more action-packed, we are eager to share the next chapter of this compelling story,” said Mark Fennessy of HELIUM, who produces the drama.
