Action crime-drama Gangs of London went down a storm when it arrived on our screens in April 2020. Gangs of London, an action crime drama, was very famous when it was out in April 2020. The first episode alone drew 2.23 million viewers, giving it Sky Atlantic’s second-largest original drama premiere ever behind Chornobyl. “We are delighted by the response to Gangs of London and to have brought [showrunner] Gareth Evans’ unique cinematic vision to the small screen for the first time,” said Sky Studios boss Cameron Roach at the time. “This epic saga, with family at its heart and visceral action-packed fight sequences, has taken audiences on an immersive journey into the underbelly of London’s modern-day criminal underworld.”
“Not only is Gangs of London Sky’s most binged premiere box-set this year, but it’s also the biggest original drama launch on Sky Atlantic of the past five years,” said Sky UK’s managing director of content Zai Bennett. “It’s dark, dangerous, and we are thrilled it is coming back for a second series”. Fans have yet to see more of the gruesome gangster show nearly two years later. So, when can we expect to see Gangs of London Season 2?Here’s all you need to know about the Gangs of London Season 2.
What will Gangs of London Season 2 be about?
The main concern is if Sean has survived and how the other gangsters will respond. The bond between undercover detective Elliot and Shannon, Ed Dumani’s daughter, is another central plot point of Gangs of London Season 2. “There’s a lot there to be done with them as characters and especially Alex [Paapa Essiedu] will know more about Elliot now,” he continued. “He will understand a bit more about what Elliott has been doing the entire time… And what can Elliott bring to the table now as somebody who has potentially gone rogue?”
Gens added: “I’m sure in season two, he [Elliot] will go to the dark side.” They also want to explore the “repercussions of what Luan does to Mosi.” Evans added: “It can’t just end there. You don’t just get away with bumping off four people in a hotel room and then say, ‘Oh, okay, we’re done. “There’s a lot of scope there, a lot of stuff that they can carry on and explore further.” We can safely predict that there will be plenty more horrific and bloody scenes along the way. The sequence in which Sean sets a man on fire before sending him down to his death was almost not present in the episode.
“We were genuinely scared about what it would say about Sean, so a couple of us had cold feet,” Gareth told Metro.co.uk. “Matt really pushed for that moment because we were really anxious about what it would say about Sean,” Gareth said. “Matt, to his credit, held firm, ‘This scene has to be how the show starts, this has to be the first scene’. There’s so much content out there right now so the first two or three minutes are vital.”
So Far What happened in Gangs of London
We saw Jack being in the basement at the end of Season 1. As Luan orders his men to investigate what’s been going on in his doorway, Elliot also leaves and bundles the bloodied man into the backseat of a cab.
Jack and Elliot dash away, and he exposes the car’s registration plate: G443 SAV. When Sean learns of what has occurred, Ed urges him to see reason and make peace rather than pitting all of his business partners against one other. Marian supports Sean and requests that Luan should be present in front of them. When Jack and Elliot arrive, the tension is fades away as Elliot discloses what occurred with Luan and who he is. Sean doesn’t believe him when he says he did everything by himself. Elliot reveals the truth about Jack’s knowledge of “a pair of pikey kids” who killed Finn and the reg plate. He then helps them in their search for the killers after some thought (and a pistol to the back of his head).
Elliot discovers the car’s location and rushes to the spot, just as another vehicle departs with Darren in the back. He walks into the apartment and sees the driver of the red car lying in the bath. Before grabbing the meat cleaver and attacking Elliot, he chokes him out. Elliot wins a close fight.
Elliot exits the flat, unable to obtain any information on Darren’s whereabouts. He meets a lady named Vic in the back alleyways. She reveals that he’s an undercover cop. He might be able to sway Sean Wallace’s loyalty and provide them with important information. Ed brings Jack a cup of coffee as the show ends. Well, they chat about that night with Finn, asking where he was going. Ed discloses that he has poisoned his drink as they continue to converse. “For the sake of the family, Jack”. Ed adds as he rises and cuts Jack’s wrists to appear as though he had committed himself.
What happened to Finn Wallace? With the wild card of Elliot smack bang in the middle of this tense, ugly affair. The door is wide open for the rest of the season to allow this subject to fester and bubble up. There’s a nice balance of power that’s beginning to become imbalanced. Well, the minor tensions and feuds between the many characters are intriguing enough to keep you coming back for more. The savage battle sequences are bloody and beautifully shot. Also, aided by outstanding camera work that keeps things suspenseful and fascinating throughout.
Cast & Crew of Gangs of London Season 2
Season one fans were in shock. It is when we saw that the main character, Sean, by Joe Cole, dies in the previous season. The mobster was last in a pool of his blood when we last saw him. Is Sean, on the other hand, dead? While the police officer stated that he passes away, we never saw his face. And in programs like this, we must follow the ‘nobody, no death’ guideline.
Is it possible that Sean made a deal with the authorities to vanish. This allows him to take down The Investors in secret? “It was planned from the start that Sean Wallace would die… He’s shot and he’s dead,” co-director Corin Hardy told Den of Geek. But co-creator Gareth Evans was a little more cryptic, even admitting that they left Sean’s destiny ambiguous on purpose. “I believe we’ve left the location of Elliot’s shooting quite open. If it had been dead centre, he would have definitely died.”
Sean’s mother, Marian (Michelle Fairley), faked her death. Thus she’ll probably be back, as will Elliot (p Drsù), Alex (Paapa Essiedu). Also, Ed (Lucian Msamati), Shannon (Philippa Bennett-Warner), Finn’s mistress Floriana (Arta Dobroshi). And, Lale (Narges Rashidi), Asif (Asif Raza Mir), Luan (Orli Shuka).
The door is still open for Billy (Brian Vernel) and Jacqueline (Valene Kane) to return to London. In an interview with Den of Geek, co-director Xavier Gens also said that there would “probably [be] a new, major enemy,” as well as other details.: “We need to create a new one because the body count of the first season is quite elevated.”
