Will Gangs of London return?
Gangs of London Season 2: Renewal
- Gangs of London has been confirmed for renewal of Season 2.
GOL’s renewal was announced two months after the release of Season 1, by Sky Atlantic. The series proved highly popular with fans in the U.K. and America, where AMC came on as co-producer for the second series after it aired in America in late 2020.
The series is labelled as “the biggest Sky Original drama launch on Sky Atlantic of the past five years”. As it stands, the series sits at 8.1/10 on IMDB, 91% on Rotten Tomatoes and 70% on Metacritic. With ratings like these, the renewal of Season 2 was a no brainer.
GOL: Release date predictions
The release date for Gangs of London Season 2 has not yet been confirmed. However, a release for Spring 2022 is expected.
Season 1 aired in April 2020 and released all 10 episodes at the same time. The episodes have only just finished airing on AMC in the U.S. and have begun filming, as of the beginning of May 2021.
This gives a reasonable years gap from when it has finished airing in the U.S to when post-production for the series will be completed. We expect an announcement will be made for the official release date in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, fans can take this opportunity to catch up with Season 1 on Sky TV or AMC depending on where you are. Watch the trailer for it below.
Please note: This is a release date prediction and not confirmed. We will be sure to update this article, should more information come to light about Season 2.
GOL: Potential plot for Season 2
Please note: This article contains spoilers.
As many fans saw, the end of Season 1 concluded on a cliff-hanger, which set up the storyline for Season 2 nicely.
Elliot’s cover is blown, but Sean helps him by giving him a sim that will take down the investors. Sean is killed by Elliot, who then takes Alex to safety. Marian survived the shooting and is offered help by Marian.
Elliot is captured and interrogated by the police. The investors find their way to Elliot and help him to get released and say they will contact him again.
Season 2 could show Elliot work with the investors from the inside to start breaking them down as he still has the sim card that Sean gave him.
There is a possibility that Like Marian, Sean somehow survived his shooting as he was shot in the cheek. Marian will likely return stronger now she has aligned herself with Floriana. The two will likely work together in secrecy now Marian has been presumed dead.
Shannon could leverage Elliot’s secret of being a policeman or decide to kill him, while Alex will most likely be the head of the Wallace organisation if Sean is in fact dead.
Co-creator Gareth Evans has said to Den of Geek about Sean’s fate “I think we’ve kept that pretty open, in terms of where Elliot shot him. If it had been dead centre, then yeah, absolutely”. We expect to know if he is alive in the premiere for season 2 and no sooner, as the cast and crew remain tight-lipped with a definitive answer.
Please note: The plot has not yet been confirmed at this time. Therefore, these are predictions that should be taken with a pinch of salt.
