In 2017, The Son, which is based on a novel of the same name, premiered on AMC, and it did well enough to be renewed for a second season. Now the cable network has introduced its McMafia TV show, which is inspired Misha Glenny’s book, McMafia: A Journey Through the Global Criminal Underworld. Since this new TV series is a fictionalized adaptation of a non-fiction account, does it have what it takes to hook the television audience in the same way? Will McMafia be cancelled or renewed for season two on AMC? Stay tuned.
An international crime thriller from creators Hossein Amini and James Watkins, McMafia stars James Norton, Juliet Rylance, David Strathairn, Faye Marsay, Aleksey Serebryakov, Mariya Shukshina, Oshri Cohen, Merab Ninidze, Kirill Pirogov, Yuval Scharf, Sofya Lebedeva, Clifford Samuel, Anna Levanova, and David Dencik. The AMC drama centers on 33 year-old Alex Godman (Norton). Although he was educated in a British boarding school, this self-made hedge fund manager is the son of Russian exiles with connections to organized crime. When the family’s past returns to haunt them, Alex has to decide how far he will go to protect his loved ones. **Status updates below.

Loved the show. Must return to AMC
Show must return. Excellent plot and acting
Awesome AWESOME TV SHOW!!!great writing,action,thrilling INTENSE!!!
James Norton I will watch you in anything!
Season 2 OMG HURRY.
The cast is amazing BrAVO❤️
But.. But.. But it’s not on the same network as ‘Real Housewives®’…
This is the best series around. I watch it twice! Please bring back season 2. Live this show!!!
I agree with millie Season 2 is a MUST
Millie watch the series Happy Valley (netflix) with James Norton and Grandchester (pbs) all different roles and gen is extremely talented ….
One of the best shows on tv….it better return for season 2 & more!!!!
This show gets better each week. “McMafia” series title did it no favors. I hope there will be a season 2.
One of the best shows on television right there with Homeland. This is a must to renew! Come on it’s quality programming. The cast is exceptional and the characters are ugly, yet likable.
This was a really good show. Unfortunately, not enough viewers stuck with it long enough to see the plot develop. Too bad! It could have been a great series.
You are exactely right! This is the best show on TV right now. Im on the edge of my seat the whole time that Im watching this. Thats the risk though of having your first episode so heavy on plot development that people dont return for more episodes. . Glad I gave it time. Hoping that its British ratings are high enough to renew this…though cant see AMC renewing this regardless unfortunately.
I love mcmafia and hope it gets renewed for season 2!
I just can’t get past the terrible name, to give it a fair chance.
It was great! Excellent story!
Well, ok the name of the show is odd, but î find it intriguing if not a bit predicable in some ways.. I will say the lead character, is someone î have watched on PBS, and he is a very promising young actor..
The actor or..?!?
The ratings are about what I expected. Low with a big drop after the first two episodes. I’m watching episode 3 as I type this. The first two were quite boring. If episode 3 doesn’t pick up some then I’ll delete it from my DVR queue.
I just can’t get past the show name, to even give it a chance. Everytime i hear it, i think it should be about a McDonald’s restaurant mafia.
