Gangs Of London Season 2 Teaser Trailer Just Dropped

A teaser trailer has dropped for season two of Sky’s record-breaking drama Gangs of London, ahead of its release later this year. Watch it here:

Billed by Sky as an 'ambitious, visceral, action-packed thriller', the BAFTA-winning show was dubbed the 'modern day Peaky Blinders' when series one arrived in April 2020, having also been praised for its contemporary take on the gangster genre and for its cinematic fight sequences. 

The first instalment followed the Wallace family as they dealt with the death of their patriarch Finn (Colm Meaney), formerly the head of London's most powerful crime group, whose assassination sent shockwaves through the city as son Sean (Joe Cole) took over.

With the Kurdish Freedom Fighters, the Pakistani Drug Cartel, Welsh travellers and other criminal bodies to answer to, what Sean didn't realise was that one of his biggest enemies came from within his own organisation – after undercover cop Elliott (Sope Dirisu) managed to infiltrate the family.

After an explosive finale that saw Sean confront Elliott, with fatal consequences, Sky now promises a 'returning series full of twists, turns and exhilarating, cinematic action sequences', with an official synopsis for season two saying: "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 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. Old favourites and new players fight back against the new order, forcing sworn enemies to work together and family members to betray each other. Who will win the battle for London’s soul?"

In the new trailer, Elliott says in a voiceover: "Really, I’ve seen things you haven’t. You know how it feels to be powerless, to be a pawn in someone else’s game. The things it makes you do.

"What does it feel like to be a king?"

Speaking about the second series, Sky UK's Managing Director of Content Zai Bennett previously said: "Not only is Gangs of London Sky's most binged premiere box-set this year, it's the biggest original drama launch on Sky Atlantic of the past five years.

"It's dark, dangerous and we are thrilled it is coming back for a second series. Will the Wallace family rise again, will the Dumanis remain loyal to their new allies and who is Elliot really working for? 

"All these questions and more will be waiting for Sky viewers when Gangs of London returns to screens in 2022."

In an interview with LADbible back in 2020, creator Gareth Evans had hinted that a follow-up could be on the cards, saying there would be various 'loose ends' to be picked up.

He said: "Obviously when we were designing it, as with anything you design the long form – you're looking at 'what can the future hold' and 'where can the story continue to go and develop'. And I think that by the time audiences get to where the show ends in season one, they'll know that there are so many different ways that it could play out. 

"I'm keeping super vague, I'm so sorry! But there's lots of trailing loose ends of things that are all kind of like... You'd be curious to where those characters end up, and what becomes of them when you get to season two." 

Actor Sope Dirisu, who plays Elliot Finch, added: "But the only way we'll find out is if people watch it and enjoy it! The audience will have to come with us and see." 

Season two of Gangs of London arrives later this year, with season one available to watch now on Sky and NOW.
