Gangs of London season 2 lands two huge directors (Picture: Sky)
Gangs of London season 2 is already shaping up to become one of the most anticipated series incoming, and Sky has now confirmed two huge directors will be joining the bill as we wait to fill the Line of Duty shape hole in our lives.
After becoming the biggest Sky Original launch on Sky Atlantic of the past five years, Gangs of London will start production on season two soon, with Lupin and Narcos Mexico director Marcela Said as well as Little America filmmaker Nima Nourizadeh joining Corin Hardy, who was responsible for some of the most breath-taking episodes from season one.
Created and produced by Gareth Evans, famed for gory cult classic The Raid, Gangs of London followed mob boss Sean Wallace (Joe Cole) as he steps up to take lead of London’s crime scene following the murder of his father.
However, (spoiler alert) Sean appeared to be killed in the season one finale so where the thriller goes from here is anyone’s guess…
‘Helping Gareth and the team bring the first series of Gangs of London kicking, screaming and exploding to life was an invigorating high-dive into the world of cinematic television,’ enthused Corin.
‘I am beyond proud of the Bafta nominations the show has received, it is a real tribute to the incredible cast and crew and all round team effort.

‘The audience response to Gangs of London was phenomenal and so it’s an honour to be handed the reigns for series two to continue building our (under)world and get to tell the next chapter of this action-packed and emotional crime saga, which, if you’ve been watching so far, you’ll know, is about to kick off for real.’
Gareth added: ‘Working alongside such a talented team of creative collaborators made Gangs of London a truly remarkable experience for us. The intent was always for the show to take the conventions of long form television and fuse it with a genre filmmaking sensibility.
‘I could not have hoped for a better duo to share directing duties with than Xavier Gens and Corin Hardy.
‘Now, as Gangs gears up for series two, myself and Matt Flannery are beyond excited to see what Corin and the team have in store. I have no doubt under his direction the journey for this incredible cast of characters will be a visceral, thrill-ride packed with emotion and bloodshed.’
Gangs of London season one is currently available to stream on NOW and Aky Atlantic.
