Considering the main fact that since its groundbreaking launch in 2013, the series not only shook the viewers to its core with its catchy story arc but also left a tremendous cultural impact in England. Seeing that names like Author topping the top ten boys’ names in 2018 and Ada coming up in the top 100 names for girls for the very first time in a century (as per ONS) in itself says a lot about the show’s success as the names got popularity from the said series in question, i.e. Arthur Shelby Jr. and Ada Thorne. Like it or not, the Shelby family has an alluring charm, and thus it does come as a surprise that people can not wait for the franchise to drop another season to know more about them.
