Gangs of London Season 2 is a British crime drama TV series that Matt Flannery and Gareth Evans have created and are making. This series focuses on present-day London’s underworld, where gangs from all around the world fight to gain power and control. This violence is happening due to the murder of a powerful leader, Finn Wallace. The series came up in the United Kingdom on April 2020 on Sky Atlantic. After the series became very successful in the UK, AMC has taken over this show’s broadcasting rights in the States.
It only took the show’s first episode to bring in 2,23 million viewers. This made it the second-biggest launch of a series for Sky Atlantic after the famous show Chernobyl. The series also became the most-watched series on the channel for the previous year. There is a lot of violence in the series about which the critics have already informed the viewers. Despite this, the show is very likable because of its mystery storyline and the characters’ sudden changing motivations. The second season also might create a great response as it focuses on continuing with the story where it left last year.
Expected Plot of Gangs of London Season 2
We have seen in the first season that Fin Wallace was assassinated. The person who has done has not been caught yet. This is just the beginning; the situation worsens when Sean, his son, tries to capture his position. In another place, Elliot, an employee of the Wallace family, turns out to be someone else and has another identity.
Like the previous season, this season will be very violent, brutal as the international gangs try to obtain a higher position. The second season will shower much light on particular characters and their journeys in the crime world.
