Taboo is a BBC television drama series released in 2017. It is produced by Scott Free London and Hardy Son & Baker. It aired on BBC One and FX in 2017, and only one season has released so far.
However, a second season was ordered in March 2017 itself. No other updates came from the crew since then. Now we have some news about season 2 and its release. Keep reading to know everything else about the updates from the crew.
Taboo is a creation by Tom Hardy, his father Chips Hardy, and Steven Knight. However, the story is based on a story that Tom and Chips wrote. Also, Tom himself is playing the lead James Delaney.
The story is set in 19th century England, and that is exactly when the war between Uniter states and Britain was coming to an end. Also, the series contains details like the politics, business, the working class, their misery, and all such conditions the war brought upon them.
The season one was praised by critics because of Tom Hardy and his acting, also for this presentation and pacing, which led to the renewal twice. In other words, there will be two more seasons of the show.
About Season 2
Steven Knight is really particular with the three-part act. The first one was “escape.” The next one will be “the journey” and followed by the “arrival.”
However, we see James and his surviving allies setting sail to America. Maybe that is hinting to something that might lead him to meet and seeking help from his Mother’s tribe.
Hardy earlier hinted that the season 2 would have something to do with Us spy network ‘Colonnade.’
The release date
The delay from the end of 2017 was because of the schedules of the makers and actors. Steven Knight is definitely a busy man with Peaky Blinders, Serenity, See, and all those stuff.
Hardy is also pretty busy currently with Venom 2 and Fonzo, in which he plays the leading man. But the filming has not begun yet, so we do not have a date, although fans are happy that Hardy and his wife had a baby in January 2019, which also kind of delayed the filming.
Due to the huge delay in the filming, the only confirmed cast we have for now is Tom Hardy, and we know that only because he co-created the show along with his Dad and Knight.
Anyways let us hope the filming starts as soon as the lockdown situation comes to an end.
