Tulsa King Season 2: Release, Cast & Everything We Know (2024)

UPDATED (February 26, 2024): Filming for Tulsa King Season 2 will begin "soon" and production will shift from Oklahoma to Atlanta according to a new report.

Tulsa King's highly-anticipated return to Paramount+ for Season 2 is expected to highlight exciting new story details and thrilling newcomers to its cast.

Created by Taylor Sheridan, Tulsa King tells the story of a Mafia capo who was just released from prison and is sent to Tulsa, Oklahoma to establish his new criminal empire.

The series features Sylvester Stallone as the titular capo, marking his first time leading a scripted TV series.

Tulsa King premiered on Paramount+ on November 13, 2022. It was renewed for a sophom*ore run in the same month.

When Will Tulsa King Season 2 Release?

Paramount+ has yet to announce Tulsa King Season 2's premiere date, and there are a few behind-the-scenes tidbits that could contribute to its potential delay.

In February 2023, Deadline shared that original Tulsa King showrunner Terence Winter stepped down from his position due to creative differences.

Despite that, Winter will still remain as an executive producer.

Production has yet to begin for Tulsa King Season 2. In fact, Martin Starr, who stars as Bodhi in the show, told Collider in February 2023 that there is no start date yet, pointing out that the creatives are "working out so many details" before filming:

"We don't have dates yet. I think they're working out so many details. We don't even know where we're going to do it this year, or, this next season. So I'm excited to find out everything. I don't think they've dug into scripts or anything yet. I could be wrong, but you know, the impending writer's strike certainly would urge anyone to get moving."

Another setback to a potential release is the ongoing writers' and actors' strike by the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and Screen Actors Guild.

Speaking with Newsweek in May 2023, Tulsa King lead star Sylvester Stallone reflected on the writers' strike, noting that "it's definitely affecting work" for the series though he openly supports the WGA members:

“It’s definitely affecting work because we can’t move forward with a lot of projects, especially Tulsa King. But I think it’s changed so much that the writers do have a serious gripe. They’re in a grievance that it’s changed. There’s not enough work to keep all these writers going and then they’re living under this cloud of AI. It’s a very terrifying time to be a writer.”

At this stage, there's no definite timeline on when Tulsa King Season 2 will start shooting, leading to more confusion on when it will actually premiere.

Given that the writers' strike already ended in September 2023, work for the script for Season 2 could begin soon.

In February 2024, a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution revealed that production for Tulsa King Season 2 will be shot in Atlanta instead of Oklahoma.

No start date has been unveiled, but this new update hinted that it will begin "soon."

For reference, Tulsa King Season 1 began filming in early 2022 before wrapping up, via Fox News, sometime in August 2022. The show then premiered in November 2022.

Considering that timeline, filming will likely end around November or December 2024 at the latest, meaning that Season 2 could premiere on Paramount+ between March and April 2025.

Who Is Cast in Tulsa King Season 2?

Tulsa King Season 1 features a star-studded cast, and a good chunk of them are expected to return in Season 2.

Sylvester Stallone is expected to return as Dwight Manfredi alongside Martin Starr's Bodhi.

Stallone's return in Season 2 comes after he was initially unsure of coming back due to the intense workload of a TV series compared to movies.

The veteran action star spoke with Variety in November 2022 to talk about how "it's beyond tough" to work on the series:

"It’s beyond tough. I can’t believe some people have done this for four, five, or six seasons. It’s brutal, compared to filmmaking. I’ll never say, ‘This is a hard shoot’ again on a feature. It’s a vacation compared to this! It really is.”

When asked if he will return for Season 2, Stallone noted that it's "a big decision:"

“Can they shoot it in my home in Palm Beach? That’d be nice. I talked to my wife about it. If she comes along with the kids to the set to visit, perhaps. But it’s a big decision, it really is.”

Other supporting characters who are poised to make a comeback are Max Casella as Manny, Andrea Savage as Stacy, and Vincent Piazza as Vince Antonacci.

Here's every actor who is expected to come back in the show's sophom*ore run:

  • Sylvester Stallone - Dwight Manfredi
  • Martin Starr - Bodhi
  • Domenick Lombardozzi - Chickie Invernizzi
  • Andrea Savage - Stacy Beale
  • Vincent Piazza - Vince Antonacci
  • Max Casella - Armand Truisi
  • Garrett Hedlund - Mitch Keller
  • Jay Will - Tyson Mitchell
  • AC Peterson - Pete Invernizzi
  • Dana Delany - Margaret Deveraux
  • Annabella Sciorra - Joanne Manfredi
  • Ronnie Gene Blevins - Ben Hutchins
  • Michael Beach - Mark Mitchell
  • Tatiana Zappardino - Tina Manfredi-Grieger

What Will Happen in Tulsa King Season 2?

Plot details of Tulsa King Season 2 are shrouded in secrecy, but the Season 1 finale provided many hints on where the story will go.

At the end of Season 1, Sylvester Stallone's Dwight and his crew successfully defeated Waltrip and his local biker gang. After the sweet victory, though, Stacy Beale betrayed Dwight and had him arrested during the events of the finale.

Aside from Stacy's surprise heel turn, Domenick Lombardozzi's Chickie is another enemy lurking in the shadows that could be pushed to the forefront in Season 2.

Based on the finale, Season 2 will likely begin with Dwight in prison. Despite that, given that he has many enemies on the outside that he wants to hunt down, there's a good chance that he will escape from jail.

It's also possible that he could make new alliances while inside the prison that could help him both escape and take down his enemies outside.

As for Season 2's villain, Domenick Lombardozzi's Chickie could become a new threat that would rival Stallone's Dwight, especially after his shocking move to kill his father to take over their business.

While Dwight still has issues to solve in Season 2, Paramount+ already hinted at the potential of seeing spin-offs under the Tulsa King umbrella.

In an interview with IndieWire in January 2023, Paramount+ Chief Programming Officer Tanya Giles said that Tulsa King's "huge success" in the streamer "opens up possibilities" of spin-off shows:

“The huge success we’ve had with ‘Tulsa King’ and Sylvester Stallone opens up possibilities with Taylor Sheridan, who consistently, his mind works in terms of universes and backstories, so I think there’s always a possibility that there’s more to that universe and more to that story. More to come there.”

How Many Episodes Will Tulsa King Season 2 Have?
