Owing to its ever-growing popularity among the masses, there was no doubt that sooner or later, the story of these criminal organizations would continue, and apparently, the time has finally arrived for that to happen.
Here is all that you need to know about the Gangs of London Season 2 release date, who is returning as cast, what will be its plot, and much more! Check them out now.
What is the Gangs of London Season 2 Release Date?
Gangs of London Season 2 will make its debut in the United States on the 17th of November, 2022, on the AMC+ streaming platform.
However, the second series is already available to watch in the United Kingdom and Germany because of its premiere on the 20th of October 2022 in both countries.
Fun Fact: Gangs of London Season 2 was initially scheduled to release in the year 2021, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the production, as well as the filming, was delayed. As a result, post-production of the second season was put off as the filming only began in the month of May 2021 and was wrapped up in February 2022.
Thus, it took almost two and a half years for the second season to finally make its official premiere.
Where to Watch Gangs of London Season 2?
The second season of Gangs of London will be available to watch in the US on the online streaming platform AMC+ as AMC has taken over US broadcast and co-produce rights.
While on the other hand, viewers from countries like the UK and Germany can watch it on its original streaming platform “Sky Atlantic” and on NOW with a NOW Entertainment Membership.
As far as international viewers are concerned, we do not know yet whether the television series will even be released in other parts of the world or not.
So, as of now, the second installment of the British action–crime drama television series is only available in countries like: U.K., Germany, and US.
What could be the Plot of Gangs of London Season Two?
As we already know, the first season opened us up to England’s capital city London “being torn apart by the turbulent power struggles of the international gangs that control it.” Especially the chaos that ensues with “the sudden power vacuum that’s created when the head of London’s most powerful crime family [Wallace Family] is assassinated.”
Thus, the second season takes place one year after the events of the first installment of the show; we will see the fall of the Wallace Dumani empire and the rise of another force that takes over the city.
As per the official synopsis of the second series:
“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.”
Thus, to maintain order in their so-called criminal world that has been shattered ever since their leader’s death:
“The Investors have aligned behind heroin baron Asif Afridi, and together they have installed a new ruling force in London in the form of a brutal gang leader — Koba.”
But, Koba is not your typical gangster as “his vision for the criminal landscape is a dictatorship” where “old school gangster codes don’t exist and in which he holds a complete monopoly over London’s drug trade.”
Though many say “monopoly can’t last forever,” which means gangs will fight back, the main question that arises here is, “who will win the battle for London’s soul?”
We will have to wait for its premiere to find that out! But, as far as the intel we are getting from the fans from UK and Germany, the second season is apparently blowing everyone’s minds out with its thrilling comeback.
So, do not forget to watch out once it debuts y’all!
