Good news for fans of the Tom Hardy-starring drama on FX!
The network announced Wednesday afternoon that they will be bringing the series back for a second season.
“Taboo’s first season was exceptional and its success on FX is testament to the creative excellence and dedication of the producers, cast and crew,” said Eric Schrier, President of Original Programming, FX Networks and FX Productions. “We are proud to again join BBC One and Sonar Entertainment in partnering with Scott Free London and Hardy Son & Baker on the second season and look forward to working again with the great Tom Hardy, Steven Knight, Ridley Scott, Chips Hardy and everyone who makes Taboo so remarkable.”
The drama series executive produced by and starring Tom Hardy, who also co-created the series alongside Steven Knight and Chips Hardy, was among the highest-rated new cable dramas of the past year in the U.S. according to the release.
Set in 1814, the first season of Taboo follows James Keziah Delaney, a man who has been to the ends of the earth and comes back irrevocably changed. Believed to be long dead, he returns home to London from Africa to inherit what is left of his father’s shipping empire and rebuild a life for himself. But his father’s legacy is a poisoned chalice, and with enemies lurking in every dark corner, James must navigate increasingly complex territories to avoid his own death sentence.
