Taboo seizoen 2 krijgt groen lichtDe drama serie van en met Tom Hardy, Taboo, heeft een tweede seizoen gekregen van FX en BBC One. Het eerste seizoen van Taboo had 5.8 miljoen kijkers per week op FX. Eric Schrier, President van Original Programming voor FX Networks en FX Productions zei hierover:

“Taboo’s first season was exceptional and its success on FX is testament to the creative excellence and dedication of the producers, cast and crew. We are proud to again join BBC One and Sonar Entertainment in partnering with Scott Free London and Hardy Son & Baker on the second season and look forward to working again with the great Tom Hardy, Steven Knight, Ridley Scott, Chips Hardy and everyone who makes ‘Taboo’ so remarkable.”

Tom Hardy liet weten:

“We are grateful and excited to continue our relationship with the BBC and FX in contributing towards British drama. Fantastic news.” 

Uitvoerend producent Ridley Scott voegde toe:

“We’re thrilled people want to know what happens next and that the BBC and FX are up for more adventures with the devil Delaney and the league of the damned. Along with our international distributors, Sonar Entertainment, the BBC and FX have been great partners, supporting ‘Taboo’ at every stage so it could be the dark, dirty brute of a drama that it is.”

Steven Knight bedenker en uitvoerend producent zei:

“I’m thrilled that a work which pushes boundaries has been so well received and found such a large and enthusiastic audience in the U.S. and Britain. We have tried to take an impressionistic, rather than figurative, approach to a narrative which we hope more accurately portrays the spirit of an extraordinary time in history. James Delaney will continue to explore many realities as he takes his band of misfits to a new world, thanks to FX and the BBC, partners who could not be more suited to collaborating in ground breaking work.”

Chips Hardy bedenker en Consulting Producer zei:

“I’m delighted we have the opportunity to build on what was achieved in the first series, and that we can continue to create breakthrough drama to intrigue and entertain.”

Taboo is gebaseerd op een origineel verhaal van Hardy en zijn vader, Chips Hardy. Hardy speelt de rol van James Keziah Delaney, een avonturier die in het jaar 1813 uit Afrika terugkeert met 14 illegaal verkregen diamanten om wraak te nemen voor de dood van zijn vader. Delaney weigert zijn familiebedrijf te verkopen aan de East India Company en besluit zijn eigen scheepvaartbedrijf te beginnen. Andere rollen zijn voor Jonathan Pryce, Michael Kelly, Oona Chaplin en David Hayman.
