With less than two weeks to go until Gangs of London returns in the UK, a new red band trailer and images have been released for the hotly-anticipated second season of the acclaimed crime drama series which sees old favourites and new faces fight back against the new order, forcing sworn enemies to work together; take a look here…
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 London’s soul?
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.
