BBC’s period drama TABOO’s future depends on its star actor Tom Hardy. The show is based on a story written by Hardy and his father Chips. In season 1 that premiered in 2017, the show focused on the character James Keziah Delaney (played by hardy) as he returned to London to inherit what remained of his father’s shipping empire. The eight episodes of the season explored Delany’s struggles to escape his family’s enemies and stay alive.
Taboo season 2 was announced 2 years ago. But nothing looks clear still. FX airs Taboo & its president John Landgraf has said that the show depends on Hardy’s willingness & availability. He mentioned Taboo might not continue beyond its initial run of episodes. There is also an idea that the series could return without the character of Delaney as the main protagonist. Hardy would still remain a part of Taboo.
Hardy has been collaborating on the script for Venom 2 and starring in several projects. He will also be returning to the role of Max Rockatansky in a sequel to Fury Road and star in a remake of A Christmas Carol. Steven Knight, who previously worked with Hardy on Locke, directed Season 1. Knight is both a writer and executive producer on Christmas Carol. Composer Max Richter who is famous for having contributed to everything from Black Mirror to Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island, worked on the score.
