Plot Synopsis

MCMAFIA is an eight-part series that charts Alex Godman's journey as he is drawn deeper and deeper into the world of organised crime. As the English-raised son of Russian exiles with a mafia history, Alex has spent his life trying to escape the shadow of that criminal past, building his own legitimate business and forging a life with his girlfriend Rebecca. But when his family's past returns to threaten them, Alex is forced to confront his values to protect those he loves. What starts out as a story of survival and revenge becomes an epic tale of a man's struggle against the lures of corruption in the modern world and in himself. AMC aired the U.S. premiere of MCMAFIA on Monday, February 26, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT.
On Monday, April 23, 2018 at 11:10pm ET/PT, AMC premiered the Season 1 finale of MCMAFIA. Alex arrives in Moscow ready to do business, but he's unaware of the devastation that Dmitri's actions have caused -- and the danger that he faces, with Vadim and Ilya awaiting his arrival. Alex draws on all his resources and must play the only card he has left to try and save himself, before facing a final showdown with Vadim.
