It was pretty much guaranteed, but it has officially been confirmed that Tom Hardy's Taboo will be getting a second season on BBC One and FX in the US.

The first season only finished up recently and Tom Hardy, along with the show's creator Steven Knight, have spoken openly about their hopes for a second. The actor confirmed the news to ScreenDaily saying: "We are grateful and excited to continue our relationship with the BBC and FX in contributing towards British drama. Fantastic news."

While Sir Ridley Scott, who executive produces the series, said: "We're thrilled people want to know what happens next and that the BBC and FX are up for more adventures with the devil Delaney and the league of the damned."

Knight previously spoke of his plans for the second season saying: "In my mind, explosive stuff is going to happen, which will be great, should it happen. There's a great destination for it, but I don't know if we're in a position to talk about the actual details of it."

We're still in two minds about the series if we're honest, on the one hand, it's Tom Hardy, and despite all that endless grunting of his, he knows how to put on a great performance. It's just a bit one-note at times and on other occasions, it takes itself so seriously it borders on the ludicrous. Saying that, there are plenty more directions this show could go in and it did start to grow on us over the eight episodes, so we are definitely curious to see what's next for James Delaney.
