“Taboo” is sure to return to the big screens as confirmed by FX. The network has renewed the series starring Tom Hardy (James Keziah Delaney) as an early 19th century man who seeks revenge. Season 2 is bound to see more of Hardy’s realities, as confirmed by the show creator.

FX’s Eric Schrier announced that the network is working with Scott Free London and Hardy Son & Baker for season 2. FX is also working with BBC One and Sonar Entertainment. “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,” he said in a statement.

The series was co-created by Hardy with the help of his father, Chips Hardy. The father and son tandem collaborated with “Peaky Blinders'” Steven Knight to create the show. Knight has teased fans about what should be expected in season 2, saying its lead character will explore more realities.

Season 1 has focused on the life of James Delaney as he returned to London in 1814 after over a decade to claim the inheritance of his father. During the time that he was away, he was presumed dead by people who knew him. Season 2 is expected to centre on his comeback.

The news about the show’s renewal has not been much of a surprise as the show has been a solid performer in the network. Even the show’s creators are inspired by the audiences’ reaction. “I’m thrilled that a work which pushes boundaries has been so well received and found such a large and enthusiastic audience in the US and Britain,” Deadline has quoted Knight saying. The show landed at 0.4 rating among adult viewers and had 1.33 million audiences for its pilot episode.

Per FX, the show averaged 5.8 million audiences in each episode across all platforms. These include on-air replays, delayed viewing and streaming.

“We are grateful and excited to continue our relationship with the BBC and FX in contributing towards British drama,” Hardy said. He described the news of the show’s renewal as “fantastic news.” The show's season 2 air date is yet to be announced.

Season 1 also starred Jonathan Pryce (Sir Stuart Strange), Oona Chaplin (Zilpha Geary), Stephen Graham (Atticus), Michael Kelly (Dumbarton) and Jessie Buckley (Lorna Bow) among others. The first season aired on FX in the United States and on BBC One in the United Kingdom. It started airing in January in both countries. The show’s release in Australia is yet to be announced.
