Paramount+ has announced the season two renewal of Tulsa King. The news came just after three episodes of the first season aired on the streaming service. Its debut episode, which aired on Nov. 20 on Paramount Network, attracted 3.7 million viewers, making it the best new linear cable launch of 2022.
The series stars Sylvester Stallone, Andrea Savage, Martin Starr, Jay Will, Max Casella, Domenick Lombardozzi, Vincent Piazza, A.C. Peterson, Garrett Hedlund and Dana Delany. It follows New York mafia capo Dwight “The General” Manfredi (Stallone) as he establishes his business in Tulsa, Oklahoma, shortly after being released from prison.
“I’ve always wanted to play a gangster,” Stallone said in a statement. “But I wanted to play a unique gangster who is not like a gangster — at least, not when you meet him. He’s actually a guy who likes to cooperate. I thought about Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis. Like, what if you woke up and you were now in a different profession but you had the same personality? That way, you don’t assume the automatic cliché of a thug who stares at you dead-eyed and (slides into his Rocky/Rambo speaking voice for a moment — just to show) doing the deep voice. But if he has to get heavy, it’s gonna get real heavy. So I said, ‘I’m gonna play him as close to myself as I’ve ever done in my life.’”
The Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan also serves as the creator and executive producer of Tulsa King. The EPs include showrunner Terence Winter, Stallone, David C. Glasser, Ron Burkle, Bob Yari, David Hutkin, Allen Coulter, and Braden Aftergood. Additionally, MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios produce the series.
“With the combination of the incomparable Sylvester Stallone and Taylor Sheridan’s darkly comedic twist on the beloved mobster genre, we have found our latest hit in Tulsa King,” said Tanya Giles, Chief Programming Officer at Paramount Streaming. “The series’ premiere on Paramount+ helped drive a record sign-up day fueled by our unique ability as Paramount Global to tap into Paramount Network’s incredible Yellowstone audience.”
