Tom Hardy's 'Taboo' renewed for second season
Actor Tom Hardy's gritty period drama 'Taboo' is coming back for a second season. The actor, who portrayed enigmatic James Delaney on the show, conceived the series with his father, Edward, and co-produced it, reported Deadline.
"We are grateful and excited to continue our relationship with the BBC and FX (in America) in contributing towards British drama," Hardy says. The pick-up is great news for Hardy, who initially lost USD 2.5 million making the drama after production costs of USD 13 million exceeded the show's income of USD 10.5 million.
The show revolves around adventurer James Keziah Delaney who is long believed to be dead, returns home to London in order to inherit his late father's shipping empire. All is not what it seems, as Delaney encounters numerous enemies intent on making his life back very difficult.
