The highly acclaimed HBO series The Deuce is coming back for a second season and we've got a full trailer for you to watch that gives you a look at what's in store for the next chapter of the story.
The series centers around the rise of the porn industry in the 1970s. Season 2 is set five years after the events of Season 1 and it finds the characters dealing with all kinds of new challenges as the porn industry is thriving. The New York police department is starting to crack down on the industry and new laws come into play.
The series stars James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal and here's the synopsis:
Created by George Pelecanos and David Simon, who also collaborated on HBO’s “The Wire” and “Treme,” the semifictional drama series “The Deuce” tells of the germination of the sex-trade industry in the heart of New York’s Times Square. It’s the early 1970s, and the porn business begins a shift from organized crime-backed parlors to a legitimate, culturally accepted enterprise. A cast of barkeeps, prostitutes, pimps, police and nightlife seekers centers around twins Vincent and Frankie Martino (James Franco, in a dual role), who navigate the sex business after meeting well-connected mobster Rudy Pipilo. Their storyline, among others, merges with that of prostitute Candy, whose ambition and intelligence lead her to a more prominent role in the industry.
The Deuce season 2 premieres on HBO on September 9, 2018.
