‘Gangs of London’ is a British crime-action drama that originally dropped on Sky Atlantic. Created by Gareth Evans and Matt Flannery, the story takes place in contemporary London and chronicles the turf wars between multiple gangs and criminal organizations in the city. In January 2020, the show was then picked up by AMC to air for its US audience. Branded as one of the contenders for the best shows from Summer 2020, the first season of ‘Gangs of London’ opened to critical acclaim. And here is everything we know about ‘Gangs of London’ season 2!
Gangs of London Season 2 Release Date
‘Gangs of London’ season 1 premiered on October 1, 2020, with three back-to-back episodes on AMC+, AMC’s premium subscription bundle. Thereafter, new weekly episodes from the 10-episode season 1, drop every Thursday on the platform. Prior to that, the show’s inaugural installment released in all its entirety on Sky Atlantic on April 23, 2020.
When the series originally landed on Sky in the UK, it became the channel’s biggest premiere streaming series for 2020 and the biggest original drama launch in the past five years. So no wonder, in June 2020, it received its order for the second season. Dan McDermott, President of Original Programming for AMC and Co-President of AMC Studios, stated: “Gangs of London is a cinematic thrill ride that set screens ablaze with a stellar cast, elevated drama, and epic storylines, and we couldn’t be more excited to raise the pulse of our audiences with this explosive crime series. We’re grateful for the opportunity to partner with Sky Studios, Pulse Films, and Sister to continue to push the boundaries on a bold new season of the series.”
During the renewal announcement, Zai Bennett, Sky UK’s Managing Director of Content, revealed that the second outing would answer many questions, which were left unsolved in season 1’s conclusion. Will the Wallace family rise again from the ashes? With the Dumanis having made new allies, will they continue to stay loyal? And finally, who is Elliott really working for? AMC has additionally confirmed that ‘Gangs of London’ season 2 will release sometime in 2022.
Gangs of London Season 2 Cast: Who Can be in it?
The second season is expected to see almost the entire lead cast making a return. We have Michelle Fairley as Marian Wallace (Finn Wallace’s wife), Colm Meaney as Finn Wallace (a crime lord in London), and Brian Vernel as Billy Wallace (the youngest Wallace son who is recovering from heroin addiction). Valene Kane stars as Jacqueline Robinson (Finn and Marian’s daughter, who is not in touch with her crime-oriented family).
Sope Dirisu essays the role of Elliot Finch, Jude Akuwudike plays Charlie Carter, Adrian Bower stars as Mark, and Emmett J. Scanlan plays Jack O’Doherty. Finn is long dead, but he is expected to appear in flashbacks. It is unclear if Joe Cole, as Sean Wallace, will return since Sean suffers a bullet shot on his head in season 1. Although fans are speculating his return, he has been declared dead. Therefore, it depends on the creators if they wish to bring him back in a surprise twist.
