Steve Night is one of the finest directors that the film industry has ever seen. He has delivered some of the biggest superhit shows like Peaky Blinders. We all know that Taboo has also remained in his notable works so far. The drama aired first time on BBC Network in January 2017.
Fortunately, the series proved to be superhit as it got superb views in its lifetime run. Though slowly but still its views are increasing with each passing day. Also, the stars who acted in drama received praises from viewers as well as from critics for playing their respective roles effectively. Now, along time has passed to the arrival of the first season.
That’s why fans have started questioning Taboo Season 2 release date and many more things about the series. After going through the reports of trusted sources we have found out some latest details about the forthcoming season. So, here is everything that we have discovered so far –
Has BBC Announced Taboo Season 2 Release Date?
We all know that the final episode of season 1 streamed in February 2020. However, creators didn’t wait much for the airing of the last episode as they announced the renewal of the series for the second time in January 2020. Moreover, the sources were saying that the shooting would start in the last of 2018 or in the beginning of 2020. But, due to some cause it failed to occur.
Just because showrunners didn’t reveal any details about season 2 at that time, people started speculating that the second season has been canceled. But now we don’t have to worry as recently, Steve Knight has disclosed that the script of Taboo Season 2 is on the verge of a conclusion and the production will start once the timetable is ready.
However, after analyzing the current conditions it isn’t looking that production will go on smoothly. That’s why the second season is not going to come before the first quarter of 2022. So, if you have heard any news regarding the specific release date of next season then it’s entirely wrong. Showrunners will let us know if they decide the premiere date of season 2.
How Will Taboo Season 2 Plot Be?
The drama shows us the story of James Delaney who after the demise of his dad reaches London from Africa. The episodes present a dirty picture of Britain’s politics as the nation goes towards the way of anarchy. The series also provides insights into the enigma circling around James and his strategies. So, basically Taboo is a traditional political series that delivers a tale of the past commercial society of England.
Well, we can’t provide you any exact details about the plot of the forthcoming season as showrunners haven’t given any signals on it. But the reports of Nextalerts suggest that next season will mainly cover segments of America and narcotics will be highlighted in it. Besides this, Tom Hardy has mentioned that the second installment will examine James’ real legacy. The next season will also provide deep insights into Jame’s unusual past.
Also, the forthcoming season will show us the moderation of political issues between Britain and the United States. And, we will get to see its influence on James’ strategy. The web of United States’ secret agents ‘Colonnade’ is going to play an eminent role in it. So, we are hoping that next season will solve many of its unsolved mysteries.
Who Will Be Part Of Taboo Season 2 Cast?
The showrunners haven’t commented anything on the cast of the upcoming season. But we have seen that the drama has scored awesome 8.4/10 stars on the IMDb, 8.8/10 stars on TV.com and 92% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Apart from this, the last season also didn’t end on a satisfactory note.
Considering these parameters, it isn’t seeming that makers will change the entire cast for the second season. Definitely, there are chances of adding new members but their inclusion won’t alter the lead actors of the cast. As per Nextalerts, they will return in season 2.
