Tom Hardy Finally Confirms A New Series Of 'Taboo' For 2018

Fans of grunting and top hats rejoice

After hinting at its "explosive" return last week, Tom Hardy has now officially confirmed a second season of his smoggy, gritty and grunty period drama Taboo.

Set for release in 2018, the second season will see James Delaney (played by Hardy, of course) and his band of friends and criminals try and settle in America.

"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," added executive producer Ridley Scott.

If you missed the first season, the drama follows the story of James Delaney, a traveller who everyone thought was dead until he returns to London in 1814, after spending a decade in Africa, to reclaim his father's shipping empire.

Hardy is also set to star in Christopher Nolan's next box office certainty Dunkirk, which is set to be unlike any of his previous films.

Exciting times for Hardy fans, then.
