Here’s what we know about the release date and cast for Season 2
The second season for Tom Hardy’s Taboo was announced by BBC back in 2017, and you know what that means. There is going to be more to come from James Delaney and his rough and tough league of the damned, and let’s not forget his famous grunts.
Charlotte Moore, the BBC director of content, described season one to be a “phenomenal success,” and the reason they got such a high number of views was thanks to having it on the BBC iPlayer.
We will be putting up all we know before the release of season two.
So when is Season two airing?
Season one aired on BBC One from January 7, 2017, in the United Kingdom, and on the United States, it aired on FX on January 10, 2017.
Season 2 was supposed to commence production in early 2018, as planned by series creator Steven Knight, but it did not happen as Tom Hardy’s busy schedule clashed with it, and Taboo was held up. In case you’re not familiar with Knight, he’s the brains behind Peaky Blinders, a show that has received critical acclaim from fans worldwide.
In early 2019, we got word that the writing on season two was “almost finished,” but filming won’t start until late 2019 or early 2020. And now it’s 2020, but the filming hasn’t started yet. Now all that’s left is for Tom Hardy’s schedule to match with this to get the show rolling. Tom is busy shooting for Venom 2 currently.
Season 2 cast
As for the cast, so far, only Hardy’s role has been confirmed as he co-created it with his dad, Chips Hardy. Other characters that could potentially make a comeback would be Lorna Bow (Jessie Buckley), Mark Gatiss (the Prince Regent), Stephen Graham (Atticus), David Batman (Brace), Edward Hogg (Michael Godfrey), Jason Watkins (Solomon Coop) and Nicholas Woodeson (Robert Thoyt).
