AMC Renews ‘The Making of the Mob’ for Season 2 Based in Chicago

“The Making of the Mob” has been renewed for Season 2, AMC announced Friday at the Television Critics’ Assn. press tour.

The second season, given an eight-episode order, will revolve around the Chicago underworld, rather than New York, which the freshman season covered.

“The Making of the Mob: Chicago” will document the emergence of organized crime in Middle America, focusing on Al Capone, following the iconic gangster’s early days in New York to his prolonged war with the Irish gangs of Chicago to his battles with Eliot Ness.

“We’ve had an amazing experience with AMC on ‘The Making of the Mob: New York’ and to get to explore a second season focusing on Al Capone and Chicago is a dream,” said exec producer Stephen David, president of Stephen David Entertainment, which also produced the first installment.

“Making of the Mob” has been a steady performer on Mondays for AMC this summer. Through six episodes in Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates, it averaged a 0.41 rating in adults 18-49, a 0.52 rating in adults 25-54 and 1.52 million viewers overall.

“The Making of the Mob: Chicago” is slated to bow in 2016.
