Your Honor season 2 plot

SPOILER ALERT if you have not watched Your Honor season 1, it's kind of important to understand where the story is going in season 2.

The first season chronicles Desiato's efforts to protect his son Adam from a mob family, the Baxters, after he is involved in a hit-and-run that kills their son. When the Baxters find out about Adam's involvement, they use it to blackmail Desiato to do their bidding. Of course along the way, more lies and secrets are revealed, with Desiato's life crumbling around him, including Adam's ultimate death and Desiator being disbarred from the bench.

But Your Honor season 2 looks to offer Desiato a chance for some vengeance. Here is the official synopsis for the new season:

"Bryan Cranston returns as ex-judge Michael Desiato, a man forced to face the wreckage of his former life. Disbarred, disgraced and all but destroyed, nothing can bring him back from the brink until a federal agent coerces him into a scheme to take down the Baxter family. Revenge can't return all he’s lost, but redemption offers a ray of hope. He has a chance to strike a blow against the empire of corruption and vengeance that runs New Orleans, but will it be enough to lay his ghosts to rest?"

Cranston said in an interview on the podcast Armchair Expert, that Your Honor season 2 would be the final season of the show.
