Release Date, Cast, and Plot for Taboo Season 2
Taboo is a television drama series produced by Scott Fee London in January 2017. It is set in 1814 and tells the narrative of James Delaney, who returns to England with stolen diamonds to attend his father Horace’s burial after a twelve-year absence. Drama and criminal violence are both present in the BBC program. Following its premiere in 2017, the show was renewed for a second season. Unfortunately, the pandemic scenario has caused the release date to be postponed. Taboo Season 2 will now have a new release date.
Plot Summary for Season 2 of Taboo
Season 1 of Taboo ended with James, Atticus, Michael, and others boarding a ship provided by Strange and travelling to America. However, the gang must be cautious because a traitor is among them. Coming into its second season, the show’s creator, Steve Knight, had previously hinted that the tensions would be growing in season two, with opium and narcotics featuring prominently. We may also see the gang meet their new adversaries in the following season, namely Colonnade, an American spy network.
The series will revolve around secret spies. In addition, the eight-episode series will reveal some surprising details about James Delaney’s past and shed light on the legacy left by James’s deceased father. The protagonist’s objectives are likely influenced by the political conflict between Britain and the United States. As a result, fans of the series might expect lots from the series.
Season 2 of Taboo has a release date
Knight had planned for the second season of Taboo to be released early in 2017. However, due to production setbacks, the film’s release date was pushed back from winter 2021 to summer 2022. Unfortunately, we do not expect it to stick to these dates this time. It is set to premiere on September 24, 2021. I hope you will not be able to see further no delays and that our wait will be over soon.
Who is in the Taboo Season 2 cast?
In 2018, Tom Hardy confirmed his comeback to the British drama series. Tom’s comeback is unsurprising, considering he and his father, Chips Hardy, were the ones who first exposed the storey to the fans. So far, nothing has been revealed about Season 2’s cast members. Nonetheless, we expect the Season 1 actors will return for the sequel. Lorna Bow, Stephen Graham, Mark Gatiss, David Hayman, Jason Watkins, Edward Hogg, and Nicholas Woodeson, to mention a few, would all be returning. Season 2 will also include new characters and faces. The new cast members would be a pleasant surprise for us, as well.
Taboo Season 2 is planned to premiere on BBC One and FX in the United Kingdom and the United States. Keep reading this page for further information.
Production on Taboo season 2 will begin in September. We’ll hopefully get new updates as production starts. The actual release date has still yet to be determined. In an interview with Collider, Knight anticipated that due to Hardy’s hectic schedule, they wouldn’t even start production until “early 2023.”
During his interview with Esquire, star Tom Hardy revealed a few indications about the new season, although there aren’t many details.
“The second season of Taboo is really, really important to me, and it’s taken a lot of thinking, because I really enjoyed the first one and I want to be really fulfilled by the second one.”
“We’re still playing with ideas: you could go linear, a continuation of time, or we could drop prior to London [the first series starts with Delaney’s reappearance in the capital after a decade missing in Africa], or we could quantum-leap through time! I don’t know whether to go orthodox – there’s a series of that already written – but I don’t know if that’s the right way to go.”
Hardy stated unequivocally that he was willing to let his intuition run wild:
“In my head I was thinking, ‘Let’s say they get to America, they get to Canada, fast-forward to 1968, the Tet Offensive, the Vietnam War, look at the CIA, the Viet Cong, the French in Saigon…. Take the Delaney family tree out in the jungle, and recreate the same family dynamics that were happening in London but with new people, thinking about how history and corruption repeats itself. It’s still Taboo, it’s still period, but it’s the Sixties. There’s something fun about that. Or do we go back to the 1800s? The Napoleonic Wars? The American War of Independence?’ But nothing’s crossed my heart and mind and desk where I’ve gone ‘That’s it!’ so I’m hanging fire.”
We’re really excited and looking forward to Tom Hardy’s plans for Taboo season 2, and we think it’ll be fantastic, just like the first season.
