  • 1
It's the late 1970s, when punk, disco and porn reigns and New York City never sleeps. Welcome to Season 2 of this dark, gritty series that follows the interconnected stories of barkeeps, prostitutes, pimps, police, actors, producers and mobsters. Five years after Season 1, the Deuce's backroom massage parlors and SRO hotels have exploded into sprawling emporiums, featuring live sex shows and peep booths for every imaginable fetish. Among the large ensemble of characters, Vincent Martino (James Franco) now presides over a range of mob-backed nightspots while his twin, Frankie (Franco), despite his remaining a loose cannon, is managing a profitable sex establishment; and Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) has become a rising director of ambitious adult films. From the creative team behind "The Wire" and "Treme."
