Sky have announced that the upcoming second season of crime drama series Gangs of London will be released on Sky Atlantic on the 20th October.
The official synopsis for the second season is as follows:
One year after the death of Sean Wallace and the violent reckonings of series one, the map and soul of London has been redrawn. The surviving Wallaces are scattered, the Dumanis broken and estranged, and ex-undercover cop Elliot is now being forced to work for the investors. To restore order, the investors have aligned behind heroin baron Asif Afridi and together they have installed a new ruling force in London in the form of brutal gang leader – Koba. His vision for the criminal landscape is a dictatorship, a world in which old school gangster codes don’t exist and in which he holds a complete monopoly over London’s drug trade. But this monopoly can’t last forever. The gangs are fighting back – who will win the battle for London’s soul?
The second season is being executive produced by series creator Gareth Evans, Matt Flannery, Thomas Benski, Hugh Warren, Helen Grégory, Jane Featherstone and Gabriel Silver.
The second season stars Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù, Michelle Fairley, Lucian Msamati, Brian Vernel, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Paapa Essiedu, Valene Kane, Orli Shuka, Asif Raza, Waleed Zuaiter, Jasmine Armando, Salem Kali, Aymen Hamdouchi and Fady El-Sayed.
