STARZ' 1950's Drama "Magic City" Returns Friday, June 14th at 9pm

Stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Olga Kurylenko and Danny Huston return and welcome legendary guest star James Caan

Beverly Hills, Calif. - April 10, 2013 - Starz announced today that their 1950's Miami-based drama, "Magic City" will return with an all new season on Friday, June 14th at 9pm ET/PT, one week following the finale of the Starz Original series "Da Vinci's Demons" on Friday, June 7th. The anticipation of fans worldwide will finally be alleviated as the fate of hotelier Ike Evans (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) is revealed.

This season Ike Evans risks everything in a life and death battle to rid his Miramar Playa Hotel of the mob and Ben "The Butcher" Diamond (2013 Golden Globe(R) nominee Danny Huston). Ike's dangerous plan to defeat Ben takes Ike from Havana's glamorous casinos to dealings with a new devil - Ben's boss in the Chicago Outfit. Ike's wife Vera (Olga Kurylenko) gets a second chance at her former dancing glory, while sons Stevie (Steven Strait) and Danny (Christian Cooke) drift farther from Ike -- Stevie toward the power and rewards of Ben's dark world, Danny into the moral righteousness of State's Attorney Jack Klein. Changes in Castro's Cuba ripple to the shores of Miami Beach, and a new world order begins to tear the Evans family apart. Even if Ike's long-shot gamble to take back his hotel succeeds, will the price of victory be too high?

Season two will also see the return of Kelly Lynch (Drugstore Cowboy, Charlie's Angels), Yul Vazquez (The A-Team, American Gangster), Dominik Garcia-Lorido (City Island) and Elena Satine (Just Go With It). Along with Mitch Glazer, Geyer Kosinski (Changeling, The Astronaut Farmer) returns as an executive producer. Fred Berner ("Law & Order," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent") and Colin Callender join as executive producers.

Academy Award Nominee James Caan (The Godfather, Misery, "Las Vegas") joins the cast as Sy Berman, the head of the Chicago mob and Ben Diamond's boss. A father figure to Ben, Sy saw the potential in the young con and encouraged Ben's criminal talents -- creating "The Butcher." Unbeknownst to Ben, Sy also has a secret connection to Ben's wife Lily (Jessica Marais). Esai Morales ("Caprica," La Bamba) also joins as Carlos "El Tiburon" Ruiz, a former rebel who fought beside Castro, a hero to the Cubans and is now working to free Cuba from the man he once considered to be like a brother.
