Are we getting Taboo Season 2 soon? 

It’s been five years since the release of the gritty BBC drama when it was released back in 2017. Since then, fans have been waiting for it and anticipate some unanswered questions from the first season. 

“We’re thrilled people want to know what happens next and that the BBC and FX are up for more adventures with the devil Delaney and the league of the damned,” said Executive producer Ridley Scott when asked about Taboo Season 2. 

You can catch the first season on Netflix. Here’s what we know so far about Taboo Season 2. 

All About Taboo 

Taboo is a BBC television drama series produced by Scott Free London and Hardy Son. It was first aired on BBC One in the United Kingdom, on January 7, 2017, and FX in the United States, on January 10, 2017.

The series is set in 1814 and tells the story of James Delaney returning to England after twelve years in Africa with fourteen stolen diamonds. Taboo also tells and explores the dark side of London in the 19th century, along with political and business corruption, the gangs, the misery of the working class, and the increase in wealth of the rich.

And just recently, BBC One Channel already reported that they have finally set a final date for Taboo Season 2. Set your alarms because the show’s second installment will be back on February 18, 2023. 

Taboo Season 2 Plot 

Following what happened in the first season, we assume that in Taboo Season 2, James Delaney and his cohorts will head west to Ponta Delgada in the Azores, where they finally meet US intelligence agent Colonnade.

When Knight was asked regarding the storyline of Season 2, he said, “Taboo heads west and becomes a little bit more narcotic, more opium-affected. I’ve got a geographical sort of route for the thing to take. ” 

He also mentioned that he already has a destination in mind regarding the story and that it’s best to plan it out when writing to know where he is headed. 

We can also expect dangling plot threads from the first season. The secret behind James’ tattoo and his clash with the East India Company and Mark Gatiss’ Prince Regent may be answered soon, so watch out!
