Billy The Kid

MGM+ has released a trailer for the second half of Billy the Kid’s second season, announcing a June 2, 2024 premiere date. The trailer teases an intense continuation of the Lincoln County War, with Billy the Kid facing off against new enemies and old friends.

The first part of season two, which premiered on October 15, 2023, left viewers eager for more. The four released episodes introduced Billy’s involvement in the Lincoln County War, a conflict driven by money, greed, and corruption.

The war escalates in the upcoming episodes, with Billy caught between powerful factions. Englishman John Tunstall, who opposes Major Murphy and the House, is hospitalized due to a smallpox outbreak, creating an opportunity for his enemies. Billy and the Regulators hear news of an impending raid on Tunstall’s ranch, leading to unexpected events and tragic results.

Billy, portrayed by Tom Blyth, finds himself in a struggle to survive and protect those closest to him. The young outlaw, known for his gunslinging skills, will face new challenges as the war intensifies and loyalties are tested.

The cast of season two includes Daniel Webber as Jesse Evans, Eileen O’Higgins as Kathleen McCarty, and Alex Roe as Pat Garrett. Sean Owen Roberts portrays Bob Olinger, while Dakota Daulby takes on the role of John Beckwith.

Events so far

The first season of Billy the Kid, which premiered on April 24, 2022, offered a compelling origin story for the infamous outlaw.

The narrative began in 1871, with 12-year-old Billy McCarty and his Irish immigrant family leaving New York in search of a better life. Tragedy struck during their journey, setting the tone for Billy’s future.

In Santa Fe, Billy’s mother, Kathleen, married a man who brought more harm than happiness. The family then relocated to Silver City, where Billy encountered a man called Alias, killing him in self-defense and sparking a life on the run.

Billy’s path led him to Mexico, where he joined forces with the 7 Rivers Gang, including his old friend Jesse Evans and a new companion, Pat Garrett. Their camp outside Lincoln, New Mexico, served the interests of Major Murphy, who was engaged in a commercial rivalry with Englishman John Tunstall.

As the series progressed, Billy found himself torn between his loyalties to Murphy and Tunstall, ultimately choosing to side with Tunstall as the Lincoln County War loomed. The first season concluded with rising tensions and Billy’s decision to change sides, setting the stage for the explosive events of season two.
