Taboo Season 2 Is It Renewed Or Cancelled; Rumors About Its future, Upcoming Details About Next Season

Way back in early 2017, the BBC officially announced that Tom Hardy’s 19th-century caper Taboo would be coming back for a second series. The first season aired on BBC One in the United Kingdom from January 7, 2017, followed by the United States premiere on FX on January 10, 2017.


Yep. Totally. Renewed. No doubt. Zip. Zero. Nada.

Filming on series two was originally expected to begin in early 2018. “I’m trying to write it as quickly as I can,” said series creator Steven Knight in mid-2017. “I would say we would hope to be shooting it… early next year.”

What’s Happened Then?

But 2018 came and went, with Hardy and Knight’s busy schedules apparently holding up the show.

We finally got an update in early 2019, but it wasn’t exactly great news: Knight revealed that the writing on the new series was “almost” finished, but filming wouldn’t begin until late 2019 or even possibly early 2020.

“We are grateful and excited to continue our relationship with the BBC and FX in contributing towards British drama. Fantastic news,” Hardy said after the Beeb announced the second season.

So far, Hardy’s the only confirmed returnee for Taboo season 2 – he did co-create it with his dad, Chips Hardy, after all.

James is sailing to America. According to Steven Knight;

“In my mind, explosive stuff is going to happen, which will be great,” Knight 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.”

Hardy says the show will revolve around the US spy network, Colonnade.

There’s no chance of getting stale – it’ll be three series and out for Taboo, with Knight having a very clear idea of the show’s three-act structure in his head.

Knight said;

“If we all stick with it and we all want to keep doing it, it would be three [seasons]. That’s my plan. Because I’ve got a geographical sort of route for the thing to take. It’s basically a journey west,” says Knight. Stay connected for more updates.
