Taboo Season 2: Release date
The first season ended in February 2017, and the BBC renewed the series a month later. In addition, reports indicated that filming would start sometime in 2018/2019. But for a variety of reasons, it didn’t 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 season two’s script is close to completion. Also, production would start as soon as the scheduling works out. Though considering the current situation, production doesn’t seem to start soon. At the moment, we are expecting a release date for the second season in 2022.
Taboo Season 2: Probable Cast
A lot of the cast has not been confirmed by the producers of the show. We know, though that Tom Hardy is going to return to his role as James Delaney. Apart from him, we think that Stephen Atticus will be coming back as Atticus.
Along with them, David Hayman would be back to portray Brace. Also, Jessie Buckley (Lorna), Mark Gatiss (Prince George), Edward Hogg (Michael) might make their return. However we’re not expecting Oona Chaplin to return as Zilpha in season two.
Taboo Season 2: Predicted plot
Although we don’t have any official synopsis for season two, the creator of the series has given us some hints.
According to him, chapter two will take place in America, and narcotics will play a more significant role. Tom Hardy also suggested that the next season should explore the true heritage of James. Also the second season is going to delve into the strange past of James.
Historically speaking, the coming season will see the relaxation of the political tension between the US and Britain. And viewers will also learn how this affects James’ plans. The U.S. spy network ‘Colonnade’ could also play a prominent role in it. Of course, we expect the show to answer a lot of its unanswered questions.
