Taboo is a British series that premiered first back in 2017. Created by Steven Knight, the series transports you to 1814. James is recently returning from his expedition. It was a thrilling tale of action, crime, and drama. With the show instantly making a name for itself.
Fans and critics poured their praises for the series. Tom Hardy was a win, as he always is. Fans were quickly excited about the possible return for the series. And it seems Taboo cannot arrive soon enough. But promising news for the fans is that the wait is almost over. It won’t be long before the show returns to BBC.
When is Taboo Season 2 Releasing?
The series aired in January of 2017. Its instant success meant, the producers did not waste a moment to renew the show. In an announcement in March 2017 that Taboo will be receiving a sequel. But even in 2020, there seems to be no sign of it. But not for long.
One of the major reasons for the show’s delay was the packed schedule of its writer and lead actor. Tom Hardy has had his plate full for the past few years with multiple movies and TV shows. Around the same time writer, Steven Knight has been busy scripting popular shows like Peaky Blinders on BBC.
It was finally last year that Knight finished scripting the show. But with the pandemic, the production received another heavy blow. Even with the stringent COVID-19 laws in Britain, the series is expecting to begin filming soon. That makes a late 2021 release for the show a very real possibility.
Who is returning for Taboo Season 2?
There is just one man who has been so far confirming to return. Tom Hardy will reprise the role of James Keziah Delaney. Given the fact that he had co-created the series, his return is not a surprise at all.
None of the other members of the cast has been announced so far. In Season 1, Jessie Buckley, Oona Chaplin, and Stephen Graham all shared the screen with Hardy. It remains to be a puzzle whether all of them return for the upcoming season as well.
What will Taboo Season 2 be about?
The series is about James, returning from Africa with his stolen diamonds. He quickly gets swamped by the underworld of London. As the series bid farewell, it looked to be heading West. With Knight agreeing that Season 2 will take the characters to America.
It is also likely for the gang to enter into the opium trade. With the real events in history expected to be the background for the season. Otherwise, the creators have not really looked to give away any concrete information.
Is there a trailer for Taboo Season 2?
The series is yet to begin production. And with no announcement of a cast or release date, a trailer is a far way off.
Following the success of Season 1, a sequel is highly anticipated. It won’t be easy for the creators to follow up with an equally impressive Season 2. But trusting the talent behind the scenes, that expectation is not far off the mark.
