Steve Knight is one of the most wanted directors in the industry right now. In addition to being the creator of shows like Peaky Blinders and See, he is a renowned director. And Taboo is one of his most ambitious works yet. Created for the BBC, the show premiered on January 7, 2017. In total, the series aired eight episodes. Taboo gained a high number of viewers during and after his execution. Additionally, the show received very positive reactions from both critics and viewers. In particular, Tom Hardy’s performance, pacing, and aesthetics received high praise.
Taboo Season 2: Release Date
The first season concluded airing in February 2017, and a month later, the BBC renewed the series. Furthermore, reports suggested that filming would begin sometime in 2018/2019. But, for various reasons, it did not happen. And due to the lack of official news, rumors began to circulate about the cancellation of the show.
However, Steve Knight recently confirmed that work on the script for the second season is close to being completed. Additionally, production would begin as soon as the schedule was resolved. Although considering the current situation, it seems that production will not start anytime soon. At the moment, we expect a release date of 2022 for the second season.
Taboo Season 2: Possible Cast
The show’s producers haven’t confirmed much of the cast. However, we know that Tom Hardy will reprise his role as James Delaney. Apart from him, we assume that Stephen Atticus would return as Atticus. Joining them, David Hayman would return to play Brace. Also, Jessie Buckley (Lorna), Mark Gatiss (Prince George), Edward Hogg (Michael) could also return. However, we don’t expect Oona Chaplin to return as Zilpha in season two.
Taboo Season 2: Expected Plot
Although we do not have an official synopsis for the second season, the creator of the series has given some clues. According to him, chapter two will take place in the United States and narcotics will play a bigger role. Additionally, Tom Hardy has suggested that the upcoming season will explore James’ true heritage. In addition, the second season will delve into James’ strange past.
Historically speaking, the upcoming season will see the relaxation of political tension between the United States and Britain. And viewers will also learn how that affects James’ plans. The US spy network ‘Colonnade’ could also play a prominent role. Of course, we hope the show will answer many of your unanswered questions.
Taboo Season 2: Future Possibility
Fans need not worry about the end of the series anytime soon. The series creator has said that Taboo would be a three-season series. So, fans can look forward to the third chapter after the second season comes out.
