The lovers have been waiting for the second season of “Taboo” since 2017. Despite the finished scripts, a start of the season is not yet in sight. We tell you why.
From the British drama series” Taboo” we see movie actor Tom Hardy as James Keziah Delaney. After his father dies, Delaney returns to his hometown of London out of nowhere. Inspired by his experiences, he is anxious to secure his father’s family business from the British Crown and the mysterious East India Company.
“Taboo”: When Does Season 2 Start?
“Taboo” Season 2 doesn’t have a formal air date yet and unfortunately there are many reasons for that. In March 2017, the 2nd year was formally supported by BBC One and the US broadcaster FX. In the center of this year, co-creator Steven Knight promised to finish the scripts by 2018. However, 2018 came and went without an indication that the newest episodes of”Taboo” could last shortly.
At the beginning of 2019, Knight spoke up again, but with unlucky news. The scripts for the new season are”almost” completed with six out of eight episodes, but filming won’t begin until the end of 2019 or possibly even the start of 2020. The cause of this is the hectic schedules of Knight, Tom Hardy, and Co.
Hardy became a dad for the second time at the end of 2018. From 2017 to 2018 he was taken because of his science fiction antihero film”Venom” and after that for his role as Al Capone in”Capone”. Knight, on the other hand, is involved in the production of the thriller”Serenity”, the gangster series”Peaky Blinders”, along with other endeavors.
In an interview with the US magazine”Deadline”, FX chairman John Landgraf assured that Knight had ideas for a second and third season of”Taboo”. The creation depends just on the main celebrity and co-producer Tom Hardy. And there would likewise be an alternative without Hardy’s participation, which many Hardy buffs would probably not enjoy.
When Will The Production Resume?
Hopes that the series would resume production in mid-2020 proved then eventually dashed from the worldwide threat of this coronavirus. Hardly any set continues filming, and a few productions even hang in the balance for many months. To get”Taboo” this means that we can expect the continuation at the start of 2021 at the earliest.
“Taboo”: Season 2 Plot
Little is known about the storyline so far. We only know that Delaney is on his way to America, where greater horrors will reach him. Maybe now he will finally figure out the entire truth about his mother.
