Tom Hardy Says There Will Be A 'Taboo' Series 2 - And It'll Be 'Explosive'

*grunts in approval*

If you're already mourning the end of Taboo and having Tom Hardy in your front-room once a week, then good news... it seems there's going to be a second series.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, writer and creator Steven Knight said: "I think we don't talk about that.

"In my mind, explosive stuff is going to happen, which will be great, should it happen.

"There's a great destination for it, but I don't know if we're in a position to talk about the actual details of it."

Hardy added: "We're onto the next stage. The key really is Colonnade.

"When he says, 'We are Americans', James is very ambiguous with how much information he's going to give. In his mind, you will know when the time is right."

In case you miss it, the drama follows the story of James Delaney (Hardy), a traveller who everyone thought was dead until he returns to London in 1814, after spending 10 years in Africa, to reclaim his father's shipping empire.

The eight-episode series boasts a stellar cast including Jonathan Pryce, Oona Chaplin, David Hayman, Jessie Buckley and Jefferson Hall, and is available as a boxset on iPlayer now.

Tom and his father Chips came up with the story for Taboo, and handed over writing duties to Tom's Peaky Blinders and Locke collaborator Steven Knight.
