GANGS OF LONDON: Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù Chokes Out The Competition In A Brutal And Bloody Red-Band Season 2 Trailer
The second season of Gangs Of London is almost here (for folks in the UK, it’s much closer as it’s arriving on October 20th), and Sky is back in the headlines to remind you just what it is you’ll be in for as the producers look to ante up the goods since the explosive, dramatic and brutal first season.
How? Welp, leave it to a red-band trailer with none other than series regular Michelle Fairley to invite any and all spying an eye on their social media feeds for a fairly violent, rollicking and bloody introduction to the chaos and anarchy that awaits. Ṣọpẹ́ Dìrísù is back to reprise his role as well, and he signals his return in fine, fight-heavy form!
One year after the death of Sean Wallace and the violent reckonings of series one, the map and soul of London has been redrawn. The surviving Wallaces are scattered, the Dumanis broken and estranged, and ex-undercover cop Elliot is now being forced to work for the investors. To restore order, the investors have aligned behind heroin baron Asif Afridi and together they have installed a new ruling force in London in the form of brutal gang leader – Koba. His vision for the criminal landscape is a dictatorship, a world in which old school gangster codes don’t exist and in which he holds a complete monopoly over London’s drug trade. But this monopoly can’t last forever. The gangs are fighting back – who will win the battle for the soul of London?
Series 2 of Gangs of London will see our old favourites and new players fight back against the new order, forcing sworn enemies to work together and family members to betray each other. Full of twists, turns and exhilarating, cinematic action sequences, the series will introduce us to new characters and unexpected leaders will emerge.
Paapa Essiedu, Lucian Msamati, Orli Shuka, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Brian Vernel, Narges Rashidi, Asif Raza, and Valene Kane also star along with with Waleed Zuaiter, French rapper Jasmine Armando, Fady El-Sayed, Salem Kali and Aymen Hamdouchi.
