New York, NY - February 10, 2022 - AMC Networks announced today from the Television Critics' Association (TCA) Press Tour, the renewal of six original series across its suite of premium streaming services, including shows from AMC+, Acorn TV and Shudder. The AMC+ Original hit Irish crime drama Kin is getting a second season.
Viewers were enthralled by the first season of AMC+'s gripping Irish gangland drama Kin which became one of AMC+'s biggest new series launches of 2021, driving both strong viewership and new subscriber sign-ups. A hit with both audiences and critics, scoring 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, the series starring Charlie Cox (Daredevil, Boardwalk Empire), Clare Dunne (Herself), Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones) and Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones, The Terror) charts the lives of the Kinsellas, a small but tight-knit crime family embroiled in a war against a powerful drug kingpin, Eamon Cunningham (Hinds). The new season, which begins production this summer, will see the Kinsellas as the top dogs in Dublin.
Kin is produced by BRON Studios and Headline Pictures. Peter McKenna (The Last Kingdom, Red Rock) serves as showrunner/executive producer, writer, and creator.
After some back and forth with AMC Plus customer service, got this "Unfortunately we have confirmed with our programming team that Kin is no longer part of the AMC+ content selection."
Kin s1&2: Figures...AMC+ US site has nothing about Kin at all now (3/10/23). Seems even season 1 was dropped from the AMC+ Amazon ad-on too. Prime folks mad at Amazon as dropped after they started, without warning? With my past experiences with AMC+, Amz may not be at fault.
Strange that this show seems to have disappeared from AMC+ in Australia. WTF. So sick of these shows just all of sudden not being available.
AMC+ website, as of Oct 2022 has "New Season coming 2023"
