Boston. 90s. Racism and unwillingness of whites to accept equality in relations with African Americans become a frequent pretext for crimes.

“City on a Hill ss 4”: release date, announcement
Continuation of the criminal history “City on a Hill” according to official data, we should not wait. The project closed after three seasons.
Showrunners Matt Damon and Ben Affleck made the right decision by deciding to visually show the life of one of the most criminal towns in the United States. The whole world watched the confrontation between two influential people. But every story has its own ending.
Having received a warrant to search the apartment, three cops break down the door. Realizing that they made a mistake with the apartment number, they begin to swear right in front of two dumbfounded young people. One of them shoots a cop in the leg and ends up in jail. The prosecutor in his case is DeCourcy Ward, who recently arrived from Brooklyn.
Once DeCourcy has received information on the case, he is introduced to pompous FBI veteran John “Jackie” Rohr. Immediately, their relationship turns negative as Rohr wishes for the defendant to be acquitted. As arguments, he directly tells Ward that the boy is his informant and will do more good being at large.
Repeatedly Ward refuses Rohr. He is not afraid of threats or blackmail. DeCourcy wants to make the city cleaner not only for themselves, but also for those like him. The man hopes that someday blacks will be able to calmly walk the streets and stop looking back. Jackie, on the other hand, begins to contact the right people and seeks an acquittal for his ward.
An enraged DeCourcy tries to find out how Rohr managed to outsmart him. At this time, a new unsolved case appears: a gang of criminals is robbing collectors. And if earlier the workers of the car were left alive, then this time 2 corpses are found along with the crumpled car. Learning about this case, Ward begins to look for answers.
He does not have to go far — Jackie has the necessary channels that can help Ward find the robbers. But how to approach it? After all, just recently DeCourcy refused him a big favor. The career ladder for Ward turns out to be so thorny that the line between good and evil is gradually blurred, leaving him no choice…
Even when Rohr left the FBI and became head of security for an influential businessman, he was still connected by common affairs with Ward. Will they be able to get away from common affairs and when will Boston finally be free from crime? Enemies are becoming more and more violent, and law enforcement agencies have to go to extreme measures that do not distinguish them from street thugs…
