The adventures of James Keziah Delaney will continue in ‘Taboo’ season 2…
What started out as a limited event series has now spiraled into a second season after ‘Taboo’ was renewed by the BBC and FX on Wednesday.
The show that started as a sketch of the lead character by star Tom Hardy eventually transformed into one of the most talked about shows of the year after debuting on FX in the United States.
After James Delaney returns from Africa after its believed he was dead, he stakes a claim to his family’s legacy and does everything in his power to make his way in the world while going up against the East India Company and the British government amidst the turmoil of the War of 1812.
The show was well received by critics and the cliffhanger ending of ‘Taboo’ season one as Delaney and his crew set sail towards America left a lot of questions unanswered.
“There’s a great destination for it.” Hardy said about a season two pickup for ‘Taboo. “We’re onto the next stage. The key really is Colonnade. When he says, ‘We are Americans,’ James is very ambiguous with how much information he’s going to give. In his mind, you will know when the time is right.”
There’s no word yet on when ‘Taboo’ season 2 will debut but given the timeline for the first season, it will likely return in early 2018.
