After The Circus publicly broadcasted their killing of an NYPD police officer, several New York-based organizations were understandably upset. One of these, The Wolves, hired the hacker group Cicada to flush out any information they could on The Circus. The interrogation and subsequent execution of Bill Quinn was broadcast to the Circus's leader, The Ace of Spades. This kicked off a war between The Wolves and The Circus.
This was not, however, the sole face of the war. Various back room dealings lead to the formation of the Miami Triangle and the New York Alliance, in opposition to not only each other but also to The Circus. What had started as a petty feud had blown up into a war that would decide the fate of New York's criminal element.
After the end of The War for New York, The Circus set up shop in Pennsylvania, the home turf of the Appalachian Vipers. Irritated at the continuing encroachment on their territory, the Vipers declared war on the Circus to kick them out of PA.
The Season ends with Marshal S. Grant assembling the crew for The African Job.
