Season 2 is set to have a new series of exciting action two years after the show''s first hit screens.
The first season of the Olympics en routed us to a city governed by international gangs. When the head of one of the city''s most powerful families was murdered, his youngest son, Finn Wallace, jumped at the chance to arrest control of the growing power struggle.
With a new gangster eager to win his place in London, the body count will almost certainly double as the show returns later this year.
So here''s all we know about Season 2 so far...
Gangs of London season 2 release date
The whole season of season of Sky Atlantic and NOW will be limited to a certain time in 2022.

Gangs of London season 2 plot
Season 2 looks to be a fine version of England''s capital, dominated by warring criminal factions, and will result in even more of the visceral action we''d want to see.
Season 1 of *spoilers are on the verge of winning.
The second season takes place one year after the first events, and sees the city on the brink of anarchy as a result of the collapse of the Wallace Dumani empire. The Investors have established a new, dominant force in the city.
The official skizzer for season 2 of Sky is titled:
"One year after Sean Wallace''s death and the violent plots of series one, the map and soul of London have been redrawn. The surviving Wallaces are divided, the Dumanis are broken and are distraught, and Elliot is now being forced to work for The Investors.
"The Investors have aligned behind heroin baron Asif Afridi and together they have established a new ruling force in London, led by a brutal gang leader Koba. His vision for the criminal landscape is a dictatorship, a world in which old school gangster codes do not exist and in which he has a complete monopoly over the London drug market.
This monopoly cant last forever. The gangs are fighting back who will win the fight for the Londons soul?"
Who''''s in the Gangs of London season 2 cast?
Although the fate of some of the''most famous players'' had been fixed in the balance, we''ve got a good idea of who will be back.
Sope Dirisu () will be back as undercover detective Elliot Finch, who has been forced into working for The Investors. The new cast also includes:
- Michelle Fairley as Marian Wallace
- Brian Vernel as Billy Wallace
- Paapa Essiedu as Alexander Dumani
- Pippa Bennett-Warner as Shannon Dumani
- Lucian Msamati as Ed Dumani
- Valene Kane as Jacqueline Robinson
- Orli Shuk as Luan Dushaj
- Narges Rashidi as Lale
- Asif Raza as Asif
Sky has also confirmed that five new actors have joined the cast. Koba, the new gang leader installed by The Investors, is plays by Waleed Zuaiter.
Alongside Waleed, are Jasmine Armando (in her first television role) as Saba, Fady El-Sayed, Salem Kali, and Aymen Hamdouchi all joined forces.
The only difficult question we have is whether Joe Cole will reprise his role as Sean Wallace; Elliot slain him in the cheek under instruction from The Investors, and we later discovered that Sean was dead in a police chatter.
It appears that a former military member and trained police officer would have accidentally shot him in the face rather than in the head, so there''s speculation that Sean might come back to seek his revenge.
