BBC, FX bring Taboo back for a second series

The BBC and FX have announced they will partner again on a second series of Taboo.

The drama, starring Tom Hardy, is executive produced by Sir Ridley Scott and also stars Oona Chaplin, Jonathan Pryce and Mark Gatiss.

Set in 1814, the first series starred Hardy as James Delaney, an adventurer who uncovers a dark family conspiracy upon returning home from Africa with the aim of avenging his father’s death.

Commenting on the renewal, Hardy – who collaborated on the project with his father – said: “We are grateful and excited to continue our relationship with the BBC and FX in contributing towards British drama. Fantastic news.“

“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,” added Sir Ridley Scott.
