A story of family, loyalty, deceit, power, greed, and ultimately revenge. Montreal Mafia boss Vito Rizzuto is a criminal anomaly. Determined to bring peace to the disparate wings of the Montreal crime world of the day, Rizzuto successfully unifies them, serving as a de facto CEO while ensuring a lucrative payday for all. When Rizzuto is suddenly arrested and extradited to Colorado's Supermax Prison for the 1981 murders of three Bonanno crime family members, the powerful empire he built begins to crumble. Rizzuto watches helplessly until his release from prison in October 2012, when a Shakespearean tale of revenge begins to unfold.
Initially intended as a miniseries, in March 2018, Rogers Media renewed the show for a second season. The second season, along with being broadcast on Citytv, was also broadcast on FX Canada. In November 2018, Netflix announced that it would distribute the series internationally, which began with the first season on December 7, 2018. See more »
Another underrated show that turned out to be one of the best Crime Drama Thrillers on Netflix. Season 2 I felt was a lot better than Season 1, it seems the whole creative team had found their voice and had gotten comfortable using it.
The new "Euro Fashionista" villains also were quite interesting. Does this mean that the sibling's father will be the main villain for Season 3? At any rate, such a great show, I just didn't want to stop watching it and watched the series as often as I could.
Bravo, excellent, don't you dare cancel this, Netflix.
