What’s next in store for Taboo? Recently, co-creator Steven Knight spoke to Deadline about the future of the FX TV series.
Set in 1814, the historical drama stars Tom Hardy as James Keziah Delaney, an adventurer who returns to England after spending years in Africa. The cast also includes Oona Chaplin, David Hayman, Jonathan Pryce, Michael Kelly, Jessie Buckley, Jefferson Hall, and Scroobius Pip. The show premiered its first season on January 10th.
In the interview, Knight revealed he has plans to move the show to North America in future seasons:
Not certainly in this first eight hours, but we have plans — well, certainly I have plans — if we get given the green light for more. The plan is that there would be three seasons, and, as with Peaky Blinders, I have had a destination in mind from the beginning, because I think it helps as a writer. The destination in mind is that James Keziah Delaney sets foot on Nootka Sound. But that’s a long way off.”
Though neither FX nor BBC One have renewed the series yet, Knight says he and Hardy are ready for more seasons:
I think when we first set out on this we’d go well, eight hours we can tell the story, you know, the story — beginning, middle, and end. But I know Tom has loved it so much really, has been so involved as a producer and as an actor. I’ve enjoyed it so much that we would both be ready and willing to do Series 2 and Series 3 and see where it goes.”
What do you think? Did you watch the premiere of Taboo? Would you watch another season?
I love this show. Taboo is a clear favorite. I have missed it. So glad it is confirmed for Seaon 2 and 3. Hoping nothing derails this plan. I would watch any number of seasons and wish a long life for Taboo.
Please keep Taboo on. We love it.
