BBC and FX have renewed Tom Hardy’s Taboo for a second season. Executive produced by Ridley Scott and created by Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders), Taboo takes place in 1814 and follows James Keziah Delaney (Hardy), believed long dead, as he returns home from Africa to London to inherit the remnants of his father’s shipping empire.
The eight-episode series was broadcast earlier this year on BBC One in the UK and on FX in the US. Tom Hardy will return for the second season. Season one also starred Oona Chaplin, Jonathan Pryce, and David Hayman.
