Taboo is a drama television series that aired on BBC One in the United Kingdom and on FX in the United States. Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions and Tom Hardy’s Hardy Son & Baker have produced the television series. The series premiered in the UK on January 7, 2017, and on January 10, 2017, in the USA. The first season consisted of eight episodes. Steven Knight, Tom Hardy, and his father, Chips Hardy have created the series. Kristoffer Nyholm and Anders Engström have each directed four episodes of the eight-part series. The premise of Taboo is this-

“The series, set in 1814, begins with James Delaney returning to England after twelve years in Africa with fourteen stolen diamonds, following the death of his father and as the war with the United States is nearing its end. The series explores the dark side of London in 19th century, along with political and business corruption, the gangs, the misery of the working class, the increase in wealth of the rich, etc.”

Taboo was renewed for a second series in March 2017. Read on to find out more about season 2 of Taboo.

Cast of Taboo Season 2

The first series Tom Hardy as James Keziah Delaney, the protagonist of the show. So far, for the second season, only Tom Hardy has been confirmed to be returning. Other cast members who could return in the second season of Taboo include Jessie Buckley as Lorna Bow/Delaney; Stephen Graham as Atticus, an underworld informant of Delaney; David Hayman as Brace; Edward Hogg as Michael Godfrey; Jason Watkins as Solomon Coop; Nicholas Woodeson as Robert Thoyt; and Mark Gatiss as Prince George.

Among recurring cast members, those who are also expected to return in the second series include Scroobius Pip as French Bill, the assistant to Atticus; Roger Ashton-Griffiths as Abraham Appleby; Tom Hollander as Dr George Cholmondeley; Marina Hands as Countess Musgrove; Lucian Msamati as George Chichester; and Louis Serkis as Robert, James Delaney’s half-brother.

Release Date of Taboo Season 2

The first season of Taboo was quite a success, garnering positive critics as well as audience reviews. Season 2 has been dearly awaited by ardent fans of the series, ever since the show was renewed in 2017. Steven Knight, the writer of Taboo, first said that the series might begin filming in 2018, but that did not happen, owing to the busy schedule of actor Tom Hardy. Since then, Taboo has been constantly delayed, and has been in a sort of a hiatus. On the potential storyline for season 2, Steven Knight said this-

“In my mind, explosive stuff is going to happen, which will be great. There’s a great destination for it, but I don’t know if we’re in a position to talk about the actual details of it.”

In 2019, Steven Knight provided another update, but a disheartening one this time. He said that the second season might not begin filming until 2020. And then the coronavirus pandemic halted the filming of all television shows and films across the world. The second season of Taboo has no official release date as of now, and fans can only hope that more updates on the much-awaited season 2 are provided soon.
