Taboo has secured a second series for BBC One and FX, following the success of the series one.
Created by Steven Knight with Tom Hardy and Chips Hardy, Taboo has been recommissioned for another series.
The series launched in a Saturday night slot on BBC One and has since been one of the most successful dramas on BBC iPlayer.
Taboo follows James Delaney (Tom Hardy), who is at first believed to be dead, but returns to 1814 London to inherit his late father's shipping empire which turns out to be more valuable than first thought.
He encounters many enemies, keen on making his life back in London difficult; bloodshed, explosives and betrayal are just the start of what Delaney deals with in Taboo.
Charlotte Moore, Director of BBC Content, said: “Launching in a new Saturday night slot on BBC One provided us with an opportunity to take risks and showcase distinctive drama."
Tom Hardy, Creator and Executive Producer, said: “We are grateful and excited to continue our relationship with the BBC and FX in contributing towards British drama. Fantastic news.”
Ridley Scott, executive producer, added: “We're thrilled that 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."
The Taboo series 1 box set is available on BBC iPlayer until March 27.
