Gangs of London was one of the shows that kept us entertained during the covid-19 pandemic and lockdown in 2020. The show featured violence and gore up close in a very refreshing manner that it was difficult to stop watching once you picked it up. Coupled with the fact that almost everyone was indoors and had a lot of time to spare, it became a universal topic of conversation.
The world has been waiting a long time for updates on its new season; thankfully, it’s finally here.
The first season told the story of London being torn apart by the turbulent power struggles of its international gangs and the sudden power vacuum that’s created when the head of London’s most powerful crime family, Finn Wallace, is assassinated.
The second season picks up a year after the events of the finale, with Sean Wallace’s death and the violent reckonings of the first run, the map and soul of London has been redrawn. The surviving Wallaces are scattered, the Dumanis broken and estranged, and Sope Dirisu’s Elliot is now being forced to work for the investors.
As the Investors look down on a city sliding into chaos they decide enough is enough and bring in reinforcements to restore control.
It looks like lots of mayhem is in store for all our favourite characters.
