This TV show has been described as a mini-series but an executive producer of the Taboo TV show has plans for a second season. Will Taboo be a hit in the ratings for FX and BBC One? Will it be renewed for season two or will it be cancelled? Stay tuned.
Taboo is set in 1814 and revolves around an adventurer who returns to England. James Keziah Delaney (Tom Hardy) returns to London after spending 10 years in Africa. He finds that his father has died. Now, he’s set to inherit what is left of his father’s shipping empire — much to the consternation of his half‐sister Zilpha (Oona Chaplin), her husband Thorne Geary (Jefferson Hall), and the chair of the mighty East India Company, Sir Stuart Strange (Jonathan Pryce). Michael Kelly is also part of the main FX cast. The recurring cast includes Jessie Buckley, Jefferson Hall, Scroobius Pip, Edward Hogg, Leo Bill, Christopher Fairbank, Roger Ashton-Griffiths, Richard Dixon, Jason Watkins, Nicholas Woodeson, Franka Potente, and Danny Ligairi.
