Bryan Cranston shook us with his performance in his crime-led drama, Your Honor, which was expected to air for a single season only. It is quite an amusement that Your Honor has been renewed for a second season and fans are extremely curious to know what Your Honor Season 2 will be about. The American crime drama is adapted from the Israeli TV series Kvodo and witnessed its premiere on December 6, 2020, on the Showtime platform. Bryan’s character, Michael Desiato is a respected judge from New Orleans. His life takes a tragic turn when he ends up in a situation where his son Adam is involved in a hit-and-run accident. The most shocking part? The victim of this case is the son Jimmy Baxter, played by Michael Stuhlbarg, who is a much-feared crime mafia in the state. His wife Gina goes out on a blood hunt following the tragedy of her son.
The season portrayed Michael’s morality test with his ethics as a judge on one side and protecting his son on the other. The second season is also going to be the last for this series and has to bring all the missing dots of season 1 to a connection. The show stands with mixed reviews where it has an IMDb rating of 7.6/10 and only 50% rotten tomatoes. The article will tell you everything about Your Honor Season 2 and we hope it stays up to the mark for the audience this time.
The ‘Criminals’ Didn’t Stop in Your Honor Season 1
At every step, Michael has to protect his son, Adam with everything he can and also protect his ethics as a judge and decide whom he has to support, a hit and run case accused or a mafia son who is the victim in this case. His son keeps getting closer to Baxter’s family as he starts dating Jimmy‘s daughter, Fia, and keeps falling prey to the crime mafia and faces the threats he possesses from him. Killing a crime boss’s son and dating his daughter, Adam has some serious guts within him.
During a party, a boy pulls a gun on Jimmy who thinks he is responsible for his brother’s death in prison unfortunately, this crossfire catches Adam and he appears to be dead just as Michael enters this event. Adam had faced several gunshots, some even to his neck, and Your Honor Season 2 need to revive Adam by any miracle to continue the story as he is the one who has initiated it.
Fantastic Cast & Team of Your Honor
Developed by Peter Moffat, the legal crime drama is based on Kvodo, an Israeli TV series by Ron Ninio and Shlomo Mashiach. The show is produced by Debra Lovatelli, Todd Lewis, Dewayne Darian Jones, and Joey Hartstone with the production companies – King Size Productions, Moonshot Entertainment, and CBS Studios backing the show. Paramount Global Distribution has distributed the show with Showtime being the original network. For the second season, Moffat is replaced by David Manson as the showrunner along with Joey Hartstone, who was also the writer in Season 1.

More and More Crime Drama in Season 2
The plot of Your Honor Season 2 is quite blurred as of now because season one witnessed the end of Adam’s and after facing so many serious wounds, only God and some miracle by the writers can revive Adam for this season. Bryan and Adam have to continue the storyline because Adam was the main reason behind the season one storyline where Michael’s involvement with the mafia boss, Jimmy Baxter started because of Adams’s hit-and-run case with Jimmy’s son. We can expect the downfall of Michael both in public and in his private life.
Michael had manipulated so many rules to seek a way in saving his son and has even collaborated with Jimmy, the crime boss to protect his son in season one. We can expect Michael’s career to get completely spoiled and him to leave his position as a judge. Then it can turn into Michael vs Jimmy where Michael is going to seek revenge from the mafia because of whom his life has been ruined and devasted. The highly respected Judge may turn into a crime supporter in the public’s eye and it will be interesting to see how Bryan cops up with society, his ethics, and the crimes committed by Jimmy and his gang around him.
