The drama about porn industry of the ’70s “The Deuce” returns with season 2 on September 9, 2018. The action will unfold after the events of the season 1 five years later – in 1977! We will see New York and its Times Square in the brightest, but most unstable state. We will see how the dreams of Vincent and Frankie Martino about the success in the porn industry became a reality. Although this is not exactly the reality that the guys wanted, but all the same they achieved incredible success in this business. The porno industry has become almost a part of American culture. Thus, we again plunge into troubled times for New York in season 2 of The Deuce, when the mafia and drug lords ruled the city, and porn and noisy parties completely absorbed America.
