Sky has announced that the hotly-anticipated second series of Gareth Evans’ BAFTA-winning Gangs of London is set to premiere this October. Check out the official series two synopsis and trailer below…
One year after the death of Sean Wallace and the violent reckonings of series one, the map and soul of London has been redrawn. The surviving Wallaces are scattered, the Dumanis broken and estranged, and ex-undercover cop Elliot is now being forced to work for the investors.
To restore order, the investors have aligned behind heroin baron Asif Afridi and together they have installed a new ruling force in London in the form of brutal gang leader – Koba. His vision for the criminal landscape is a dictatorship, a world in which old school gangster codes don’t exist and in which he holds a complete monopoly over London’s drug trade. But this monopoly can’t last forever. The gangs are fighting back – who will win the battle for the soul of London?
Series 2 of Gangs of London will see our old favourites and new players fight back against the new order, forcing sworn enemies to work together and family members to betray each other. Full of twists, turns and exhilarating, cinematic action sequences, the series will introduce us to new characters and unexpected leaders will emerge.
Gangs of London season two sees the return of stars Sope Dirisu, Paapa Essiedu, Lucian Msamati, Michelle Fairley, Orli Shuka, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Brian Vernel, Narges Rashidi, Asif Raza and Valene Kane, while new cast additions include Waleed Zuaiter as Koba, Jasmine Armando as Saba, Fady El-Sayed as Faz, Salem Kali as Basem and Aymen Hamdouchi as Hakim.
Gangs of London series 2 will premiere on Sky Atlantic and NOW in the UK on October 20th and on November 17th on AMC+ in the US.
