Gangs of London is a British action-crime drama television series produced by Pulse Films and Sister that is based on the 2006 video game of the same name and follows rival gangs and other criminal organisations in modern-day London.
The concept was created by Gareth Evans, best known for The Raid action crime films, and Matt Flannery. With a 7-day cumulative audience of 2.23 million viewers for the first episode, the series became Sky Atlantic’s second-largest original drama launch of all time.
The series has a 91% approval rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, based on 33 reviews. As a result, it is understandable why these questions have heightened the anticipation and piqued the interest of fans who tuned in to watch the previous seasons.
Gangs Of London Season 2 Release Date
It’s official: Gangs of London will return to Sky Atlantic and NOW on October 20, 2022.
The release date has been set for September 23rd, 2022, with the new season arriving two and a half years after the first.
Filming on the new season began in late June 2021, following earlier comments from star p Drsù, who confirmed the production was ramping up and that he was excited to get back into character.
“I would love for Elliot the same thing I would love for all humanity, and that is peace of mind and happiness,” the EE Rising Star BAFTA nominee said, “but I don’t think that is the trajectory that he is on.”
Gangs Of London Season 2 Plot
In the second season, London enters a new, darker era of chaos and turbulent power struggles. The map and soul of the city have been redrawn one year after Sean Wallace’s death and the violent reckonings of season one – the surviving Wallaces are scattered, the Dumanis are broken and estranged, and ex-undercover cop Elliot Finch (p Drsù, Humans, Mr. Malcolm’s List) is now being forced to work for the Investors.
As the Investors look down on a city in disarray, they decide enough is enough and send in reinforcements to reestablish control. Old and new characters fight back against the new order, forcing sworn enemies to collaborate and family members to betray one another.
