Variety recently reported that NBC renewed the sitcom for a second season back in May of this year, and star Ted Danson shared the news of Season 2’s March 15 release date via his Instagram in mid-November. Written by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, the series stars Danson as “a wealthy businessman who runs for mayor of L.A. for all the wrong reasons … once he wins, he has to figure out what he stands for, gain the respect of his staff, and connect with his teenage daughter, all while controlling the coyote population,” via Deadline. Holly Hunter, Vella Lovell, Mike Cabellon, Kyla Kennedy, and Bobby Moynihan also star. While you wait for Season 2, the series will be releasing a holiday special on Dec. 15 entitled “Mr. Mayor’s Magical L.A. Christmas,” which will follow Neil as he “serves his love of gift-giving by forcing his disgruntled staff to work on ‘L.A. Christmas Eve’ as they wait for his ‘perfect gift’ to arrive.” Wendy O’Brien is the series’ casting director.
