Season 2 of ‘Taboo’ to Begin Shooting Late 2019 or Early 2020

Taboo quickly became an overnight sensation upon its 2017 debut. For many, two years is a long time to wait for another season of episodes. Fortunately, one of the folks behind the series gave a huge update on season two.

Filming This Winter

Co-creator Steven Knight told Collider that filming is slated to begin either later this year or early 2020. When it comes to the overall scope of the show, Knight states that it’s almost nearing its conclusion.

“If we all stick with it and we all want to keep doing it, it would be three [seasons]. That’s my plan. Because I’ve got a geographical sort of route for the thing to take. It’s basically a journey west,” he said.

Wearing Two Hats

One person that can’t wait for filming is Taboo co-creator and star, Tom Hardy. His work landed him a nomination for Best Actor in a Drama / Genre Series at the 2018 Satellite Awards.

“The great thing about Tom is that’s his passion, the work. The acting. He’s not a fan of celebrity. But he just loves to act. He loves the process and the craft. For me, to have him occasionally available to do roles that you’ve written is wonderful because you know you can trust someone to really deliver what you do,” Knight told the publication. Knight and Hardy previously worked together on Peaky Blinders and Locke.

Acclaim Across The Atlantic

The show’s renewal was something both BBC and FX were on board with since episode one. “Tom and Steve and the show’s brilliant producers are promising something daring, different but equally unmissable and I’m delighted that the BBC is partnering with FX once again to roll ‘Taboo’ out to audiences across the world,” BBC Drama controller Piers Wenger said in a press release.

For Knight, having such a devoted fanbase keeps him motivated. “I’m thrilled that a work which pushes boundaries has been so well received and found such a large and enthusiastic audience in the U.S. and Britain,” he said in the same release.

When Real-Life Plays A Part In TV Plotlines

Not every show has its plot lined out from the moment the pilot airs, and still, sometimes real-life can get in the way. Even the best laid plans can go awry, and sometimes plotlines are created entirely to accommodate an actor’s unexpected personal issue. From pregnancies to off-set injuries (and of course plenty of on-set injuries), writers are reworking scripts so that you’d never know something else was happening behind the scenes. Think you know why an actor exited a show? We’ll bet you didn’t even realize that some major show plots happened out of serendipity. Read on to find out how in some cases, the truth really is stranger than fiction.
