Raising Kanan’s first season concentrated on teenage Kanan and his family and was set in Queens in the early 1990s. Kanan is eager to be able to take part more in the family’s advancement in the drug trade, which is being overseen by his mother Raq. But by the end of Season 1, everything has unraveled, and Kanan is compelled to leave the area after killing a police officer.

The second season of the show will also place more emphasis on Kanan’s connection with Detective Howard, the policeman he shot and left for dead, as well as how Detective Howard balances his allegiances to the police department and Kanan, who he knows to be his biological son. Season 2 will also likely feature more of Unique and New Jersey Mafia. This season seems to be filled with both internal and exterior challenges for Raq, Kanan, and the rest of the family.
