Hightown returned for season two on October 17 on Starz, continuing to expand on the complex lives of Jackie Quinones (played by Monica Raymund) and Ray Abruzzo (James Badge Dale). Jackie is in a better place in season two, now facing the challenges of sobriety. Yet, Raymund has told Express.co.uk she is holding out hope Jackie’s story will continue in a third season.
Hightown follows the lives of morally grey characters, navigating dark and brutal cases in Provincetown, Massachusetts.
During season one, Jackie was dealing with addiction, something she had been battling for years due to her traumatising past.
However, she finds herself thrown into a murder investigation, one which ironically inspires her to regain control of her life.
She does this through the help of Ray, the detective working on the case who is pouring every aspect of his life into it.

Season two sees the pair flip roles as Ray loses his position and Jackie becomes a fully-fledged officer of the law.
The first episode of season two has aired, picking up with the case which still binds Jackie and Ray together.
Starz has not confirmed if the show will receive a third season, though the stars of the show have been holding out their hopes for another return.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, Raymund explained: “I think that this show is beautifully written and has a very specific place in the world.
“Being sober and trying to live life is very, very challenging and a different set of challenges than one addicted and trying to get through life.
“That’s the relationship between the light and the darkness that I’m interested in continuing to explore as Jackie.”
Raymund’s comments on season three also echoed Badge Dale’s who sat down to discuss the show with Express.co.uk as well.
“Our story is not done,” Badge Dale explained. “We’re onto something and we have the potential to tell a really meaningful yarn.
“We’re still going and I hope we get a third season, I love the people I work with.”
Starz will likely wait until season two has finished airing before confirming the renewal of the show.
The series has been a critical success, with Stars quickly confirming season two after the first season dropped.
Fans should expect season three to air late-2022 if Starz confirms the next season in the coming months.
Hightown seasons one and two are available to watch on Starz in the USA and Starzplay in the UK.
