Starz Sets a Premiere Date for Season Two of Mitch Glazer's Miami Period Drama 'Magic City'

1950s Miami is set to once again come to life on Starz, as today the premium network announced a second season premiere date for “Magic City.” The series will return on Friday, June 14th at 9pm ET.

Season two will continue the story of Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), owner of the ritzy Miramar Playa Hotel, who is risking his business and, potentially, his family in the dangerous undertaking of cleaning up his hotel of any mob dealings. The show’s second season promises to bring more political undertones to the drama and to further the rifts in the Evans family saga.
