The journey has only just begun.

Waiting for the renewal of your favorite show hits different, especially if it has been several years.

Taboo was one of the most popular shows when it first premiered in 2017. And now, in 2022, people are looking for answers about the renewal. Yes, we’re talking about the second season of Taboo’s renewal exploration.

The series has had mostly excellent feedback, with reviewers complimenting Hardy’s performance, visual presentation, and pacing.

The eight-part drama, situated in 1814, commences with James Delaney (Tom Hardy) coming to England after twelve years in Africa with fourteen stolen diamonds.

Mourning his father’s death and as the war with the United States approaches its climax.

The storyline delves into the dark side of London in the nineteenth century, including governmental and business corruption, gangs, the despair of the working class, and the increase in wealth of the wealthy.

Taboo Season 2 Renewal Status Explored

Darkness never fades.

Let’s get to this now. Surprisingly, the show was renewed for a second season after the release of the first. To be more precise, Taboo was renewed in March 2017 for a second series.

But since then, we’ve had a couple of cold updates. Spectators have been waiting for 5 years to find out when the second season will be released.

And well recently, everyone has started to watch this show again, which heightens their interest in the upcoming release.

But what exactly is going on? We do, however, have some knowledge of it.

James Journey Will Continue In The Second Season

When the show’s renewal for a second season was announced, the show’s creator, Steven Knight, did acknowledge James Journey.

“James Delaney will continue to explore many realities as he takes his band of misfits to a new world, thanks to FX and the BBC, partners who could not be more suited to collaborating in groundbreaking work.”

In addition, executive producer Ridley Scott stated that they are eager to continue the adventure.

“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.”

The Shows Creator Shed Some Light On The Production Process

The above-mentioned conversation transpired several years ago, and we know that everyone is seeking something more relevant.

Fortunately, in November 2021, the show’s creator did indicate the development of season 2 and that scripting is underway.

Steven Knight stated, “six of the eight [episodes] are written.” And he also added that they, “are trying to get stars aligned so that we can get our star [Hardy] back on set.”

That’s not it. We’ll discover more about the developments once the season begins filming. But when will the show’s production initiate? Steven seemed to have mentioned something about it as well.

Noting that Hardy seemed extremely busy, he continued on to anticipate that shooting would begin in “early 2023.”

We’re Still Playing With Ideas

Another possible explanation we would like to see the second season of Taboo is because of Hardy, and it appears that the actor has plans for the second season.

He elaborated, “We’re still playing with ideas: you could go linear, a continuation of time, or we could drop prior to London, or we could quantum-leap through time! I don’t know whether to go orthodox – there’s a series of that already written – but I don’t know if that’s the right way to go.”

Great news right? Finally, the season will be in the works shortly and we will get to hear more about it in the coming days. What do you think will happen in the second season? Let us know in the comment section below.
