TV show description:
This dramatic TV series revolves around an adventurer who returns to England to seek vengeance for the death of his father.
Set in 1814, James Keziah Delaney (Tom Hardy) returns to London after spending 10 years in Africa. Believed to be long dead, he has been to the ends of the earth and has come back irrevocably changed.
James returns home to London from Africa and finds that his father, Horace Delaney, has died. Meanwhile, England is at war with France and the United States.
Wanting to rebuild a life for himself, James is set to inherit what is left of his father’s shipping empire. James’ return threatens to disrupt the plans of his half‐sister Zilpha (Oona Chaplin) and her husband Thorne Geary (Jefferson Hall). His presence also threatens the political ambitions of the mighty East India Company, chaired by Sir Stuart Strange (Jonathan Pryce).
With enemies lurking in every dark corner, James must navigate increasingly complex territories to avoid his own death sentence.
As James Delaney conspires to escape, an enraged Prince Regent unleashes one final plan to destroy him.
First aired: February 28, 2017.
