Taboo follows James Delaney, a mysterious adventurer who returns from Africa to London in 1814 for the funeral of his father, putting several noses out of joint when he claims his inheritance – a patch of land on the coast of America.
Unfortunately a few others have their eye on it, including the East India Company who clash with Delaney over the ownership – a feud that looks set to run and run... The show is written by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight who has worked with Hardy on the last two series of his Birmingham-based gangland drama.
“I’m trying to write it as quickly as I can"."I would say we would hope to be shooting it—I don’t know whether this is supposed to be secret or not—early next year,” he added.
Tom Hardy himself already confirmed that he will be returning as James Delaney in the next series.
