At the helm of the Mr. Mayor season 2 cast is of course Ted Danson. The Emmy award-winning actor reprises his role as Neil Bremer, the inexperienced mayor of Los Angeles. And joining him is Academy Award-winner Holly Hunter. Her stern approach as Deputy Mayor Arpi Meskimen, continues to comedically balance out the aloofness of her boss. 

The entire main cast is as follows: 

  • Ted Danson as Neil Bremer
  • Holly Hunter as Arpi Meskimen
  • Vella Lovell as Mikaela Shaw
  • Mike Cabellon as Tommy Tomás
  • Kyla Kenedy as Orly Bremer
  • Bobby Moynihan as Jayden Kwapis

Mr. Mayor plot 

Mr. Mayor is a political sitcom about a retired businessman who ran for mayor of Los Angeles only to prove that he can. However, once he was elected to the office, he finds himself trying to figure out what his platform really is, earn the respect of his deputy mayor, connect with his teenage daughter and actually attempt to serve the great people of Los Angeles. All of which is harder than he anticipated. 

Fans of the series will remember that in the season 1 finale, Mayor Neil Bremer was dealing with a palm tree fiasco and decided to ice out his deputy mayor and her opinions. A move that didn’t sit well with Deputy Mayor Arpi Meskimen. 

Elsewhere, Tommy Tomás and Mikaela Shaw were trying to comfort Jayden Kwapis after he received news that the child he was expecting with Samanthee wasn’t his.
