After pulling in record breaking numbers for Sky Atlantic, it has been announced that The Raid director Gareth Evans’ acclaimed crime drama series Gangs of London will return for a second series, although we’re going to have to wait until 2022 to see it.
“Not only is Gangs of London Sky’s most binged premiere box-set this year, it’s the biggest original drama launch on Sky Atlantic of the past five years,” said Sky UK’s Zai Bennett. “It’s dark, dangerous and we are thrilled it is coming back for a second series. Will the Wallace family rise again, will the Dumanis remain loyal to their new allies and who is Elliot really working for? All these questions and more will be waiting for Sky viewers when Gangs of London returns to screens in 2022.”
“The overwhelming reaction and record-breaking success in the UK of the first season of Gangs of London has been phenomenal, and we are thrilled to continue this epic journey with such riveting characters for season two with our amazing cast, crew and partners,” adds Thomas Benski of Pulse Films. “We look forward to teaming up again with our friends at Sky and to welcoming AMC on board as our US broadcast partner.”
Created by Evans and Matt Flannery, Gangs of London “tells the story of a city torn apart by the turbulent power struggles of the international gangs that control it, and the sudden power vacuum that’s created when the head of London’s most powerful crime family is assassinated.”
Peaky Blinders star Joe Cole leads an ensemble cast that also includes Sope Dirisu (Humans), Colm Meaney (Layer Cake), Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones) and Lucian Msamati (His Dark Materials). The first series is available to watch now on Sky.
