Official Trailer For Brutal New Series Of Gangs Of London Drops
| Last updated
The official trailer for the long-awaited second season of Sky’s Gangs of London has just dropped – and things in the capital are looking gorier than ever as Elliot and co. return for round two. Watch the new trailer here:
The first series became the biggest Sky Original drama launch on Sky Atlantic in the past five years when it arrived in April 2020, later winning four Welsh BAFTAs for photography and lighting, sound, editing and production design.
Now it’s returning for a highly anticipated follow-up, which promises to be ‘full of twists, turns and exhilarating, cinematic action sequences’ when it lands later this year.
A synopsis from Sky says: “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?”
In the new trailer, we’re given a brief reminder of the explosive season one finale, which saw Sean confront undercover cop Elliot with shocking fatal consequences, before we find out about a mysterious ‘new player’, who Ed Dumani warns must not be underestimated.
The Wallaces seem to still be grappling for power, with Sean’s mother Marian saying in a voiceover: “You understand what it took to build this city. And you know the pain of losing it. London belongs to us.”
However, it looks like their run of the city is under threat from various competing forces, as ‘old favourites and new players fight back against the new order, forcing sworn enemies to work together and family members to betray each other’.
While it doesn’t look like Joe Cole's Sean will be making a miraculous recovery – although stranger things have happened – the new season sees Sọpẹ́ Dìrísù, Paapa Essiedu, Lucian Msamati, Michelle Fairley, Orli Shuka, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Brian Vernel, Narges Rashidi, Asif Raza and Valene Kane reprising their roles alongside newcomers Waleed Zuaiter, French rapper Jasmine Armando in her first TV role, Fady El-Sayed, Salem Kali and Aymen Hamdouchi.
Watch Gangs of London season two on Sky and NOW later this year.
