BBC’s Taboo is all set to return to the screens after a break of almost 3 years. Starring Tom Hardy, Taboo is a British television drama series airing on BBC One. The show is created by Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders), Tom Hardy, and Tom’s dad, Chip Hardy. Taboo first debuted back in January 2017.
The show recieved many positive comments, also, Tom Hardy never fails to impress. However, the fans thought that after the huge success of season 1, the show will return soon. But, it took 3 years for the show to finally drop some updates.
And, now the wait is over. The fans who waited religiously for the show can breathe again. So, go ahead and catch up on all the updates regarding the new season.
Reason Behind The Delay; Release Date
Even though we are positive about the return of the second season, we have to wait quite a bit for it to premiere. According to sources, there is no official release date set for season 2.
However, when the series first premiered, the show was immediately renewed by the network. Also, the show gained huge popularity which made the fans more impatient. In March 2017, Taboo was green signed for a season 2. And, here we are in 2020 still waiting for it.
Luckily, last year Steven Knight finished with scripting for the show. Moreover, it is believed that they will begin filming again despite the strict laws abiding in Britain. But, we still do not expect the show to premiere anytime soon. So, we still have to wait, and maybe by the end of 2021, we will be able to witness the show.
One of the major reasons behind the delay of the show is the packed schedules of the cast and crew. Especially, the creators of the show, Tom Hardy and Steven Knight are busy with other commitments. Where Hardy is busy with his upcoming projects like Venom 2; Knight is busy penning down the story of his another successful show, Peaky Blinders.
Knight and Hardy go way back, as Hardy plays a significant role in his other famous Tv series, Peaky Blinders. Hardy portrayed the role of Alfie Solomons for four consecutive seasons before he died in the season 4 finale.
Cast & Storyline
The series follows the life of James who has returned from Africa with diamonds, which apparently he has stolen. Following his arrival, the underworld people of London have set their eyes on James. And, so the story proceeds. However, in the finale, we saw the show moving towards the west. Also, Steven Knight informed the audience that season 2 will be set in America. This means we will see the characters doing some serious gang sh*t in America.
The show stars Tom Hardy, Oona Chaplin, Jessie Buckley, Stephen Grahm, David Hayman, Jefferson Hall, Leo Bill, Edward Hogg, Jonathan Pryce, and Franka Potente.
