Taboo’s creator, Steve Knight has recently admitted that the script is almost about to end. Hopefully it will be completed soon.
However, the filming of Taboo will depend on its most important character James Delaney played by Tom Hardy since the actor was busy shooting for his other films. But Steve has assured us about the script as well as give us some hints regards the storyline.
The second series is confirmed to be released in late 2021 or in early 2022. The expected date is 25th June 2021. Let’s see what did Steve say about the upcoming thrilling series!
What could be the storyline of Taboo season 2?
Viewers already know that the first season ended with James surving from his enemies and was seen sailing towards America. The upcoming season could take place in America. Steve said, “There’s a great destination for it, but I don’t know if we’re in a position to talk about the actual details of it.”
He mockingly continued, “heads west and becomes a little bit more narcotic, more optimum-affected”. From this statement of Steve, we can get an idea that narcotics will play a major role in the second season.
Moreover, the story can involve the past of James. The US spy network ‘Colonnade’ will also play an important role. Tom Hardy said in an interview, “We are Americans, James is very ambiguous with hw much information he is going to give”.
Moving on to the cast of Taboo season 2. Tom Hardy is a must actor without whom the series would not even start. Apart from him, other casts are Stephen Atticus, David Hayman, Jessie Buckley, Mark Gatiss, Edward Hogg, and might include more.
However, we will keep updating you as soon as we get other information regarding the prominent release date.
Taboo Season 1 Review
The series falls in the genre of Period drama, Action Crime, Political Thriller Historical fiction. Taboo brings in London’s dark side in the 19th century and is very different from the show that is made in general, like Downtown Abbey and more. This pure gothic revenge tale is a critic of everything from Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins to H Rider Haggard and Joseph Conrad.
We as viewers can either submit to the madness swirling around or sigh and give up in disgust. Taboo deals with many issues, not just sin and secrets but also slaves, spies, increasing deaths, incest, and exorcisms. The show is a package deal with Hardy’s performance.
Such awestruck performance is what makes the whole series more applauding. People have called it a vanity project by people, but it has its charm to take the risks of being named one.
